Route Markers

The order of departure from Bögs Gård Farm are as follows:

  1. Flight Time & Big Easy (2:23 am)
  2. Meghan & Cheyne (4:12 am)
  3. Brian & Ericka (4:37 am)
  4. Sam & Dan (5:04 am)
  5. Gary & Matt (6:29 am)

Teams must travel by ferry to Tallinn, Estonia. Upon arrival, teams must travel by taxi to Mustpeade Maja. Once there, teams must use the set of keys given to them at the start of the leg and find the correct one that would sound an alarm to open the door, allowing them to get their next clue inside the building.

At Mustpeade Maja, Gary & Matt would receive their clue for their Speed Bump.

Gary & Matt must find a Saunabuss parked nearby, strip naked, and spend five minutes in a sauna with some locals before they are allowed to continue.

The team member assigned to perform this Roadblock would have to go into the cellar of the Mustpeade Maja and participate in a ceremony of the Brotherhood of the Blackheads Guild. Team members must take a candelabra with a room number attached from a table of revelers. When they find that room, they are given what appears to be a blank scroll and a crayon. Team members must figure out that their next clue is written in invisible ink and would be revealed by holding the scroll over the light of the candle.

The Roadblock performers per team are underlined:

Teams must travel on foot to the Pikk Hermann Tower Gardens to find their next clue.

Choice A: Serve
Teams would have to participate in a game of volleyball in the Keava bog, where they have to score a total of five points against a local team in order to receive their next clue.

Flight Time & Big Easy, Meghan & Cheyne, and Sam & Dan chose this task.

Choice B: Sling
Teams would have put on bog shoes and walk out onto the bog where they'll use slingshots to fire assorted vegetables at a target, which when hit would collapse a table full of cabbages along with their next clue.

Brian & Ericka and Gary & Matt chose this task.

Teams must travel on foot to Keava Raba Overlook Tower to check in.

For coming in first place, Meghan & Cheyne won a red cedar sauna.
