Here comes Nerd Lust, apparently done with their non-exciting and non-sexual night of non-jealousy and non-lust. They walk toward the glacier, where John Vito is looking at some of the information about the gorge, which seems to suggest a challenging hike. When Nerd Lust arrives, a twin asks whether the gathering of racers already at the entrance is "some kind of line." Ian, correct on the substance and a creep in the execution, as is so often the case, says, "Yeah, we got here first, man." Unfortunately for Ian, he has the worst and most aggressive karma since that unleashed by the Untipped Cabbie, so as soon as they all get through the entrance, they find that it's just a hike, so the line is pretty much irrelevant, which means that the twins need about four seconds to leave Teri and Ian in the dust. A particularly adept camera guy grabs Ian resolutely tromping along, and then slides over to show the row of keys -- which everyone has just walked right past. Wow, nice catch. Crazy music plays, and it immediately occurs to me that it's the same psycho-jangle that was used when Aahab put diesel in their car. The utter sickness of the fact that I notice this is exceeded only by the fact that I go back to the TiVo to make sure I'm right. Which I am. At any rate, the Psycho Diesel Jingle quickly gives way to Zach, who apparently does realize now that they just walked right by the keys. He goes back toward them along the path with Flo. It suddenly becomes apparent to everyone what's just happened, so they all run back and find the little row of keys a little ways off the path. Flo mentions how they had walked right by it "like idiots." Yeah, quite a lot like idiots, actually. Funny how that works. Everyone but Asshat grabs their keys pretty quickly, but Ian takes a little time to clamber down to the spot. Everyone runs out and jumps in their spoon-fed cars, which all have clues sitting on the dash. It tells them that they need to go to Kandersteg, where they'll drive their cars onto a train. The train will take them through the mountains, and then they'll have to drive themselves to an adventure park that features a big red bridge. And when I say "big," I am saying "big." In the sense of "high." In the sense of "buy insurance." In the sense of "leave a will."
