Choice A: In the Trenches
Teams would have to dress up as World War I-era American soldiers, known as Doughboys. Teams must travel through trenches to a telegraph where they have to decipher a message in Morse code - "We will prevail. Vive la France." - and then preset their deciphered message to the French sergeant, who will send their message back headquarters via carrier pigeon, and then hand them their next clue.
None of the teams chose this task.
Choice B: Under Fire
Teams would have to dress up as World War I-era American soldiers, known as Doughboys. Teams must crawl under barbed wire for 100 feet to receive a message – "The war is over. Vive la liberté." – from a soldier in a foxhole. They then have to crawl back through the barbed wire to present the message to the sergeant, who will send their message back headquarters via carrier pigeon, and then hand them their next clue.
All of the teams chose this task.
Teams must travel on foot south down the road at La Main de Massiges to find their next clue.
Since Joe & Heidi completed the Under Fire Detour, they would be forced to backtrack and complete the In the Trenches Detour before continuing.
