do you think this episode is somewhat related to a war movie like Saving Private Ryan, All Quiet on The Western Front or The Hurt Locker? B:)

Could the detour be Crawl or Code?  Perhaps Brawn or Brain?

Lots of better World War I theme movies, such as:  A Farewell to Arms, The Fighting 69th, Grand Illusion, Hell's Angels, The Lost Battalion, Paths of Glory, Sergeant York, and What Price Glory?

Wire Crawl vs Wire Comms? Barbed Wire vs Telegraph Wire?

Does it look like an overnighter to Verdun, and a staggered start at the chateau?

Questions:

Do we have this location matched in GE??



And can we find this spot?? That little hill and white tower seem searchable, :lol:



And hmmm....



Could that mean they have already done the RB?? ???

What color are the Speed Bump clues?  I did not think they were red.

And if the Detour is after the Roadblock, it gives the U-Turned team very little time to overcome their extra "challenge".

I think the very large yellow clue in his pocket is the UTurn thing...

But if they are in the Detour and have a RB clue...they they have already done it, right? ???

So speedbump, RB, Detour, UTurn....right?? ???

I'm quite unsure, but I don't think that is a Roadblock clue. It's possible, but I don't think so. Anyone else can clarify? :duno:

The battlefield may not be too far from an airport (for the triplane).

"DETOUR.  Two important tasks were related to trench warfare during World War One in France. (1) UNDER WIRE and (2) OVER WIRE  In Under Wire teams must crawl one hundred meters on their bellies under a canopy of barbed wire during an artillary barrage and air bombardment. When they have reached their destination, the officer will give them their next clue. A physically challenging task, but if they do not get caught on the pointed barbs, they will complete the task in a short time.  In Over Wire teams must travel across the battle field stringing a line of communication wire from the command post to the observation post, and then using morse code to transmit a message back to the CP.  If the message is transmitted correctly, and the team member can deceiver the coded message, the officer in charge will give them their next clue."

i love that G-Man...did you create that or find it somewhere?

And then they could send their Morse code message!

I get the idea that the crawling also involves avoiding being "hit" by the enemy...paint ball??

I wonder if getting hit by a paint ball means you start the crawl over?!

Great Detour prose gman! :jumpy:

Could the mustache be part of bike uniform task? No one is seen wearing one in the battle vidcaps.



Nope, looks like moustache is just part of the Tour de France:

Never would have gotten it: Massiges, looking southwest. Main de Massiges is about 1 km north of the village.
(Also, this might set a record for moving the pitstop)

Not to gloat, but I love being right. And I love having controversial friends like CL who are right, even if they are outspoken and blunt. Just sayin........
