Kris and Jon, Hornio, and Brooklyn take off on their snowmobiles, as Avi notes that they are going to be sleeping on the glacier, just as he apparently predicted. "Forty years our people spent wandering in the desert so we could wander around on a glacier," Avi notes. It's fairly obvious, but still a little funny. "If there is a God, he has a sense of humor," Joe notes. And...pffft. If it's taken him this long to learn that, he's a very lucky guy. Kris and Jon leave, then Brooklyn, then finally Hornio. El Hornio himself does not look like he's very happy to be there, really. I'm not sure he's a cold-climate guy, which is too bad, because he could generate some very elaborate icicle formations under the right conditions.
Third shuttle. Gus and Hera, Spazpants, Nuance. They get in snowmobiles. Jonathan screams. Gus says, "This is fun." In other words, all is going according to plan.
Don and MJ climb into the fourth shuttle, and it actually takes off. But then here come Meredith and Maria, very relieved to be making it to the flag, and there is apparently a fifth shuttle added for them, which is lucky, but very embarrassing. You don't want to make them add a shuttle, the way they add a table for the little kids who won't eat turkey at Thanksgiving dinner. On the fifth shuttle, all you get is grilled cheese.
At the campground, Kris and Jon snag a 10:30 departure. Brooklyn takes a 10:30 as well. Hornio is stuck with 11:00. Nuance tries to catch up to Spazpants on the snowmobiles, and they wind up essentially tied as they head into the camp. Both teams wind up with 11:00 departures, so it doesn't really matter anyway. Nuance shares a nice hug, which is...nice. "We didn't get what we wanted, and it's a little disappointing," Jonathan complains to the camera. Wait, I'm beginning to think he might be...intense! (DRINK!) Gus and Hera are accompanied by a funk beat as they pull up in their snowmobile and...tip over. Gravity is so undignified. No departure times are left but 11:30, so that's what they take. Don and MJ show up and take 11:30 as well. "Look at this, love," Don says. "Love"! Awww, I miss you, Team Ensure. They take a minute to admire the glacier, which is good of them. Meredith and Maria putter along in last place, because it's not like it matters, once you've been placed on the fifth of four shuttles. "I never thought I'd be straddling you on a snowmobile, Meredith," Maria offers. "Well, now you are," Meredith says, not quite sure how to volley that one back.
