Nick/Starr get 7:05 am flight to Lufthansa.

D/Andrew, CLUE, 2:28 am.
They arrive at the airport in time to get a 7 am flight through Frankfurt.

Ken/Tina, 3:30 am, leave for the airport.
Conf: Tina says they've believed they'll win the whole game through!

Nick/Starr get on the internet and look at Tilikum's website.
Ken/Tina make the same flight!

EQUALIZED!

The plane from Moscow is half-empty.
They'll swap planes in Frankfurt.
All 3 teams arrive in Portland, Oregon!
RUN! RUN! RUN! TAXI! AS FAST AS POSSIBLE! GO! GOTTA BEAT 'EM! FAST!

Nick/Starr manage out of the airport in 1st, Ken/Tina 2nd, but all 3 teams are closely bunched in taxis.

Andrew/Dan seem to find a cabbie who doesn't speak much English.   

DETOUR, Ken/Tina: High and Dry, or Low and Wet?
High & Dry, climb 30 feet up a tree, traverse a log, leap through the ear to nab a clue. (Tethered, of course.)
Low & Wet, floating log bridge 850 feet across the water to a clue onshore.

How much of a time delay is there?  I started at 8 because I'm in Canada.   I think I'll just wait till the end to post then cause I'll probably blurt something out.

Anyway, Go Nick and Starr!  :jumpy:

After Ken/Tina choose high and dry, Tina reveals she's scared of heights.   
Lost in cab, Andrew/Dan use the cabbie's cell phone to call the adventure camp, 'cause dildnuts the driver can't find it.   

Ken has his clue. He floats down his tethered line, so that Tina can go now.
Also on high/dry, Nick crosses the log and jumps for the clue, and Starr is up now.
Tina loses her hat .. er .. helmet. She puts it back on. She tells Kenny to shaddap the "encouragement."
Finally the lost frats drive up to the camp.
Tina and Ken bicker some more as she adjusts her helmet again. She snarks at Ken and takes it off altogether.

The AEPi's get their DETOUR clue.
Ken is getting disgusted as Tina falters.

Nick/Starr, CLUE: Travel by taxi to Bridge of the Gods
Phil: Zipline 2,000 feet to the island below for the next clue.

Ken: TINA! PLEASE!
Tina: YOU'RE FREAKING ME OUT! I'M SCARED OF HEIGHTS!

COMMERCIAL.

Nick/Starr run to the next challenge, while Tina debates whether she'll jump. Finally she does, and grabs the clue on the first jump.
Tina to Ken: You know, you can't be yelling at me all the time!

A whole challenge behind the field, Andrew/Dan choose high/dry.
The other 2 teams believe it to be a 2-team race.

Nick/Starr arrive at the Bridge of the Gods.
Their cabbie may actually have overshot the entrance!
Ken/Tina arrive also. Seems they get to the challenge first.
They get attached to the zipline.
Tina repeats that she has a fear of heights.
Kenny wants to toss her off a cliff if it'll win him a million dollars.
Nick/Starr finally arrive.
AEPi's finish the high/dry DETOUR.
Tina zips down first and L O V E S it.
So much for her acrophobia.
Ken makes all goo-goo about being "back in the northwest" as he ziplines down.
Nick/Starr are hot on their heels.

Ken/Tina, ROUTE INFO:
Phil: Power of memory, teams must answer 1 question from each leg of the Race.
Working in numerical order, they have to remove game pieces, then enter a field with 150 Amazing Race clue boxes. Match 10 clues to pics (or something like that) and your team can move on.

Ken/Tina botch the 1st attempt at matching pic from Leg 1.
Starr tells Nick when he ziplines down, to watch what Tina's doing so they can catch up.
Tina likens the game to "Concentration." Hugh Downs sues for slander. Vidclips matching the pics play in the background to entertain us viewers.
At least Ken/Tina are discussing which leg is which so that they can have an idea before running across the field with a pic.
Andrew/Dan's cab approaches the Bridge of the Gods.
After a couple of mistakes, Starr is getting impatient. Nick reminds her, "There's SO much room to make up time here!"
Ken/Tina seem to have 3 now.
Nick/Starr get their 1st.

Nick/Starr are moving faster than Ken/Tina, and seem to be closing the gap.
Still about half the challenge remains.
Ken/Tina snarking at each other again.
Nick: Making up some ground!
Andrew/Dan's cabbie sucks so bad, that they just take his cellphone again and call for directions to the Bridge. 
Nick/Starr seem to have the lead with about 4 to go. Tina's disgusted already.
Nick/Starr apparently working on the last couple of legs looking for a matching pic. They're almost dead even!
Andrew/Dan on the Bridge get ready to zipline down.
Tina thinks she has the penultimate one! She does!
Nick/Starr still think they can pull it off!
Tina: I don't care what they're doing! I'm not paying any attention to them!
(Tina's pants catch on fire!)
Tina to Ken: They're not all going to be in the easiest to get to spots!
Nick/Starr DONE! They break out running toward the parking lot!
Tina: Are they done!?
Ken: Yeah!
Tina: SHOOT!

Nick/Starr, CLUE: Travel by taxi downtown to the Portland Bulding.
Phil: They need to find the green dinosaur, across the street in the Standard Plaza, for their next clue.

Ken/Tina finish, get CLUE, head for downtown.
Tina to cabbie: We need to go to the green dinosaur! If you need to call, can you do that?
(Cabbie looks like he doesn't hear them ... lalalalala ...)

AEPi's finish the zipline and begin the CONCENTRATION game! Too bad; they will probably miss a fun finish.

Ken/Tina's cab passes Nick/Starr's, and Starr is not amused.
She makes their cabbie go faster.
He passes Ken/Tina back!
Nick: There we go.
Not so fast .. they're on your bumper, dude.
N/S go one way; K/T don't follow.
Tina to cabbie: Sir, do you know where you're going?  
Looks like N/S's cabbie was right!
THERE IS THE DINOSAUR!
Ken/Tina are stuck in traffic on another block.

Nick/Starr CLUE: Make your way on foot to Alder Street Cart Pods and find your last country.
(Umm ... that would be RUSSIA would it not?)
Nick knows they're looking for RUSSIAN pod!

Ken/Tina find the dinosaur, but after a delay due to traffic and being taken to another building nearby.
They head for the Alder Street Cart Pods on foot.
Nick/Starr a block or two away getting directions.
Ken/Tina are about 5 blocks away.
Woman tells Tina: Between 9th and 10th!
Nick finds Thai food.
Nick finds Russian food!
Nick/Starr, CLUE: Find where the magic is in the hole.
Phil: They need to discover that their clue is sending them to Voodoo Donuts!
Nick/Starr ask lots of folks before a guy tells them it's something to do with a magic woman sitting at a table on the street or summat.
Ken yells out all the countries one at a time.
Tina: Ken, just FIND IT.
 
Magic sitting lady tells Nick/Starr to find the donut shop.
Tina: You're trying to slow me down! Let me go!
Both teams running, huffing and puffing through the downtown Portland streets.
Anti, are you in this scene anywhere? I'd bet you are!  

Ken/Tina, read CLUE: Find the marked finish line!
Tina can't hail a cab.
Tina: This is ridiculous! Can't get a cab? THIS IS THE GAME!!
