Elsewhere, the Weavers are arriving at Glen Canyon Dam. (That was a quick 137 miles.) Behind them, the Linzes share a chuckle over the fact that the Weavers try to get ahead on the road, but will get their asses handed to them in any Detour. These two teams, along with the Gadzookskis, basically arrive together at the visitor center at the dam, so they run inside and pick tour guides to take them out to the dam. Rebecca, however, needs to hit the ladies' room first. (Evil! She's filled to overflowing with evil!) Thus, the pinks and the Linzes go out onto the dam first. Out there, they find the clue box and pull the Detour clue. The choices, Phil explains, are Bearing or Bailing. In Bearing, you follow a series of compass coordinates from box to box until you have three, and then you get your clue. In Bailing, you use buckets and a hand pump to bail out a submerged rowboat, which you have to empty out enough to carry it up on shore. When you've dragged it across a line in the sand, you get a clue. Both the Linzes and the pinks choose Bailing. As they walk back to the visitor center, the empty-bladdered Weavers are walking out onto the dam. It's hard to tell whether Mama thinks she's being funny or what when she holds her arm out like she's going to clothesline the Linzes, but she's not remotely earned that, so it's rather distasteful. One of the Eagle-Eyed Forum Posters noted this week that Mama has a weird quality of being kind of like a teenage babysitter more than a mom, and it's a very good comparison, indeed. It's almost like she's trying to show off how funny and clever and hip and bad-ass she is, and while there's nothing wrong with your mom being funny, there is definitely something wrong with this. At any rate, they read the Detour and pick the Bearing option. They pass the pinks on the way out there, talking about what "idiots" the pinks are and so forth. They are certainly the most persecuted and victimized assholes I have ever seen, that's for sure.
