Speedbump.png Speed Bump: Before beginning the Roadblock, Aly & Steve had to join a group of local children who would show them how to make toy airplanes out of repurposed soda cans. If they could make four toys correctly, they would receive the Roadblock.
Roadblock.png Roadblock: Once here, teams received a Roadblock. Who has always wanted to skydrop? The chosen team member would have to watch as a bush plane drop a briefcase out of it and into the desert. Once the briefcase had landed, they would have to run into the desert and retrieve it. Once they had it, they then had to climb a nearby steep hill to also retrieve a Travelocity Roaming Gnome. Once they returned with both to their partner, they could open the briefcase to find their next clue.
