Story

Route Markers

The order of departure from Bögs Gård Farm are as follows:

  1. Flight Time & Big Easy (2:23 am)
  2. Meghan & Cheyne (4:12 am)
  3. Brian & Ericka (4:37 am)
  4. Sam & Dan (5:04 am)
  5. Gary & Matt (6:29 am)

Teams must take a ferry to Tallinn, Estonia. Upon arrival, teams must take taxi to Mustpeade Maja. Once there, teams must use the set of keys given to them at the start of the leg and find the correct one that would sound an alarm to open the door, allowing them to enter the building and find their next clue.

At Mustpeade Maja, Gary & Matt would receive their clue for their Speed Bump. Gary & Matt must find a Saunabuss parked nearby, strip naked, and spend five minutes in a sauna with some locals before they are allowed to continue.

"Who can solve a medieval mystery?"

The team member assigned to perform this Roadblock must go into the cellar of Mustpeade Maja and participate in a ceremony of the Brotherhood of Blackheads Guild. They must take a candelabra with a room number attached from a table of revelers. Once they find that particular room, they would be given what appeared to be a blank scroll and must figure out that their next clue is written in invisible ink and would be revealed by holding the scroll over the light of the candle.

The Roadblock performers per team are underlined:

Teams must make their way to the Pikk Hermann Tower Gardens, where they would find their next clue.

Choice A: Serve
Teams must participate in a game of volleyball in the Keava bog, where they must score a total of five points against a local team in order to receive their next clue. Only two courts are available at a time.

Flight Time & Big Easy, Meghan & Cheyne, and Sam & Dan chose this task.


Choice B: Sling
Teams must put on bog shoes and walk out onto the Keava bog, where they must use slingshots to fire assorted vegetables at a target, which when hit would collapse a table full of cabbages along with their next clue.

Brian & Ericka and Gary & Matt chose this task.

Teams must make they way on foot to Keava Raba Overlook Tower to check in.
For coming in first place, Meghan & Cheyne won a red cedar sauna.
