Notice: Wiki coverage of this week's episode will be delayed, as I will be out of town. If you are able, you can help expedite the process when I return by transcribing (in Chinese characters) the names of the Detours and/or the Roadblock prompt(s)

Sad to hear :'(

Even if their race was short, they were rather memorable. I nicknamed them as "the snowbirds" because she reminded me of Anne Murray.

I am so very sorry to have to share the news that Lisa Woodruff Hinds has died after a battle with cancer.

"Frostie" may be best remembered to us as one of the "Glamazons" on TAR Season 9.  Big fans, their laughter and humor were so much fun to watch.

I know you all will all join me in extending our love to her family and friends and especially the #TARFamily.

Lisa: "Some of the hardest things in my life, some of the biggest trials that I have gone through, and heartache, in my life; when its so bad you think, I cannot get through this; and then you do get through it and you realize that that opened another door. And had you not experienced the bad things then the good things that followed would not have come."

Another Sneak Peak shows Sam & Paul getting kind of blitzed with the Craft Beer task (Detour) asking for refills when it's probably just meant to be a tasting/identification thing. Yikes.  :groan:
