Victor and Tammy opt for Austrian Folly. The party tent is pretty easy to find, with a Bavarian brass band playing and people in traditional clothing sitting at long tables swaying side to side while waving beer steins around. And inside they spot the big sign reading, in Germanic lettering, "Achtung Baby! your target is your partner's face [sic]." They look at the racks of pies stretching almost to the horizon, and Tammy, rather than waiting for Victor to get ready, gets right into it. After about five pies, they've already found one with cherry filling, and they get their next clue. This sends them on a walk to find a couple of life-sized woodcutter figures who are carved out of wood. It's a little macabre, if you think about it. They man a two-handled saw that cuts thin slices off a narrow log for the tourists. Once the teams have their disk of wood in hand, they bring it to a guy who will stamp it with their next clue. Victor and Tammy are in a great mood as they head out and ask for directions. They quickly find the woodcutters, drop a coin in the slot, wait impatiently for the clockwork saw to do its work, and get their wooden disk. And the guy stamps it with a clue that reads, "Pit Stop -- Schloss Hellbrunn." This is in Salzburg, Austria. Phil explains, "Schloss, which means "castle" in German, is an appropriate name for this impressive estate, and the Pit Stop for this leg of the race." Indeed, that schloss isn't very medieval-looking, with a collection of large, creamy yellow buildings, but there should be plenty of room for everyone to sleep during their mandatory rest period. And the last team to check in may be eliminated. Only "may?" I'm not sure I can stand the suspense.
It's Tammy's turn to drive, and Victor is singing "Hellbrunn, Hellbrunn, Hellbrunn, Hellbrunn" until she tells him to quit it. "This'll be our leisurely stroll to the Pit Stop," he says. I hope he's joking. That attitude hasn't worked out so well for Mark and Michael.
And way back at the mountain, poor Linda is still trudging down the gravel path, saying, "I hope this is the right way. I hope this is where I'm supposed to meet them." And back at the meeting place, Steve understates, "Unfortunately, Linda's not the best with directions." Mark is the next to arrive, followed by Cara, putting the Stuntmen and Team Go Team in sixth and seventh place respectively. Linda doesn't see a route marker, but at least she hears traffic, so we know she's unlikely to starve out here. "Perhaps she may have made a wrong turn," Steve ventures. Jen arrives, much to Kisha's relief, and Jodi is still waiting for Christi. And we rejoin Linda, who has come out onto a road near a cluster of houses and a rest stop. "This is not good," she frets. "I've made a mistake. Oh, God, he's gonna hate me now," she says as she begins crying. Who's going to hate her? Who does she mean? Because I don't think Phil would act that way. Finally, at the meeting place, Christie jogs into view, and the Flight Attendants wish Steve good luck as they leave him sitting there. Now officially in last place, Linda is beginning to gasp as she bumbles along the road, weeping, "I wish I hadn't of walked down that stupid mountain," she wheezes. Yes, blame the mountain.
