Since we're speculating, L'Union Estate is in the SW corner of La Digue.  No shortage of coconuts for the cowboys to load at Copra Mill.  Both the mill and the tortoises are next to each other. (see photos below)  :snicker:

So I assume the entire route is now known?
Looks like another promising episode.

If anyone can find this vid on YouTube please feel free to embed it or tell me and I will change out mine so everyone can see.

I think they forget their bags, sailing...

I was trying to make that say Turtle bounce :lol3: and I never saw a bouncing turtle :funny:

Can't get a clearer shot of the RB clue but think it refs the clue in the bottle. :swim

I think that the other detour is feeding (or getting food) for the Aldabra Giant Tortoise. According to Wikipedia, it does eat Bananas and it also can be found Union Estate park on La Digue Island.

Link: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aldabra_Giant_Tortoise

And I think that this leg may be an NEL for many reasons. First of all, it would have been easier to send the team to elimination station before going to Asia. Second, we know that Shanghai I will be a NEL as well, and I'm really doubting that they would but NELs within a couple legs (but it is possible)

Will everybody choose the oxcart? Moving one of those tortoises, even on a trundle/cart, would be quite a task: they weigh hundreds of pounds.

It looks like it matches the voiceover: "Time to take a deep breath."

We see the cowboys loading coconuts with another pile nearby, suggesting there are others behind OR someone does turtles. I bet we never get to see anyone do tortoises either. :'(



The voice overs in the preview sound like an editing mix...I think I hear Jordan say we are done, someone says we have to go back, the models are name calling like kindergarten, and Allie says we forgot our bags. Is this a tempest in a teacup?? ???

It looks like "trundle" to me.  A trundle is a round or oval wooden tub.  Or, as a verb it means to transport in a wheeled vehicle. Or, to move as if on wheels or to roll.

I think its "toddle" - "walk or go somewhere in a casual or leisurely way : they would go for a drink and then toddle off home." Better describes the way a tortoise walks...
So maybe its: "Do some task before the tortoise toddles over to the bananas and eats them." :duno:
Remember the press release, it says "race with a giant tortoise".
From there to here, and here to there,

I think you're right, WP.  Toddle fits better than Trundle.

Yeah, I saw "waddle" at first, but it could be "toddle." Don't think it's trundle.

Boingo, we have shots of the ox carts at Pension Michel... yes? Or is it just a Pension Michel directional sign? Either way, is L'Union Estate Park close enough to make this work?

One more opinion probably won't hurt anyone. It is definitely not TRUNDLE because there is aspace for only6 characters on the sign. It sure looks like TODDLE to me.

I added some sign pics in my first post of the thread, in case that helps.

 :ascared  "make it work"... ???  OMG, La Digue is only 1x3 miles big.  Jetty is only about a mile from tortoises...  "make it work" ???   :lol3:   the turtles could cover that distance and not break out a sweat...   :lol:   this place is really really small.......   :snicker:
