The next clue tells them to head toward Mendoza, which Phil explains will be about 70 miles. They'll make their way to a "traditional Argentine barbecue" (heh) at a place called Camping Suizo. Lynn and Alex get into their car, still crowing about passing Rob. Rob and Amber kind of don't care so much about having been passed as they get their clue and get into the car, saying "good job" and so forth. Amber chuckles that she kept thinking, "You're getting in shape, you're getting in shape." Heh. I kind of hate the interview that follows in which she talks about having to be thin for her wedding -- unlike, I guess, the hog she is right now. But if there's any time when people are vulnerable to that, I suppose it's prior to their wedding. But really, "You have to fit into a dress"? Mm-hmm. Keep paddling, indeed, Amber! You don't want them to have to bring in extra bolts of fabric to swath those giant hammy arms of yours.
Ron and Kelly do not use the Yield, and choose Paddle. Same with Ray and Deana, same with Uchenna and Joyce.
Susan and Patrick are at least in the mountains now, so that seems to be progress. And presumably they're the Andes, and not, say, the Rockies. Susan notes that her "ears have popped a couple of times," and Patrick agrees. Elsewhere, Debbie and Bianca are at...the ocean. Where they should not be. "This is absolutely gorgeous, but we've got major problems," Debbie says. Heh. What's great is that originally, when they missed the exit, Debbie was driving and Bianca was navigating, so at some point, they actually slowed down enough to stop and change drivers, and they still didn't figure out that they were driving in the completely wrong direction. Finally, Debbie says that they need to stop. Well, finally. When they ask someone where they are with respect to Puente Viejo, they learn that they drove two hours past it. Two. Hours. "We're off this map," one of them notes. Heh heh. Mistakes are very easy to make, but I'd have a lot more sympathy for that one if there hadn't been about eighty billion opportunities to rectify it. ["I'd have a lot more sympathy for that one if someone else had made it. Shut up, Debbie." -- Sars]
