He's A Couple Of Ticks Away From Having A Heart Attack is the penultimate episode of The Amazing Race 4.
The order of departure from Mooloolaba Yacht Club are as follows:
Teams must drive themselves Ferny Hills. Once there, teams must find Woodshed, where they must look in a pile of wool to find their next clue.
Teams must enter the park and have to follow a marked path to the crocodile pen. One team member would then use a feeding stick to feed fish to a resident crocodile known as 'Sultan'. The other team member would have to take their picture with a Kodak EasyShare Camera. They then have to find the souvenir shop and have their photo developed. They'll exchange this for their next clue.
Teams must drive themselves to Wangetti Beach to search for their next clue.
Choice A: Saddle
Teams have to hop onto a pair of horses and search the beach for one of four race flags. Within a 25 yard-radius of each flag, teams would find a hidden cluster of clue envelopes. Only one of these four clusters contained the next clue.
All of the teams chose this task.
Choice B: Paddle
Teams would have to inflate a kayak and then paddle out through the rough surf to reach an orange buoy, where their next clue would be attached.
None of the teams chose this task.
Teams must drive themselves to Julatten and find Off Road Rush to locate their next clue.
The team member assigned to perform this Roadblock would have to drive a race buggy, with an instructor, around a 7 mile rugged, bumpy course. Once they had crossed the finish line, they received their next clue.
The Roadblock performers per team are underlined:
First Place • Eliminated • Last placer in Non-Elimination Leg • Saved from elimination by the Salvage Pass or The Save • Season winner • Season 2nd place • Season 3rd place • ► Used the Fast Forward
