"Who can deliver the goods?"

The team member assigned to this Roadblock must put on a traditional Slovenian wooden backpack called a krosnja and make their way to Dežnik store. There, they must load a dozen local wooden kitchen utensils, suha roba, onto their krosnja following a marked example as reference. They must then deliver the items to the location depicted in a provided photo, Levstikov Square, in exchange for their next clue.

The Roadblock performers per team are underlined:

Teams must drive themselves to Pivka Jama and descend into the cave to retrieve their next clue.

Teams must descend deeper into Pivka Jama, where they must assemble a gigantic, three-dimensional dragon puzzle, following a finished example as reference. Once they have correctly assembled the puzzle, the dragon master would give teams their next clue.

Teams must drive themselves to Fonda Fish Farm, where they would find their next clue.

Choice A: Scrape Off
Teams must paddle a kayak to the farm's floating fish farm enclosures and use chains to scrape off the barnacles from the underside of both rings of one of the enclosures. Once the judge is satisfied with their work, they would receive their next clue.

Rob & Corey, Steve & Anna Leigh, and Todd & Ashlie chose this task.

Choice B: Swap Out
Teams must paddle a kayak out to the farm's barnacle-farming section, search among hundreds of buoys floating in the Adriatic Sea to find two marked buoys, pull up the bag of mussels hanging below each one, then replace the marked buoys with new ones to receive their next clue.

Greg & John, Joel & Garrett, and Robbin & Chelsea chose this task.

Teams must drive themselves to Grad Socerb to check in.
For coming in first place, Greg & John won $5,000 each.
