Challenges

Challenge: Raft Rally
The five remaining castaways must paddle a traditional Palauan bamboo raft to one of five pontoons, untie a color-coded bag, and bring it back to a crate on the dock. Once all five bags have been retrieved, they have to use the distance markers and a provided guide pole to correctly mark the distance between Palau and five major world cities.
Reward: Chevrolet Corvette, overnight stay at mansion with barbecue feast
Winner: Ian Rosenberger (shared with Tom Westman)

Challenge: R.A.M.
The castaways have to cross a disc walk, a group of floating pontoons, and a two-rope hand-over-hand traverse to reach a platform. They must memorize the positions of fifteen images in the grid (each player has a different grid), then return to the start and use matching tiles to recreate the grid. They need to return to the grid at the far end if any mistakes are made. First person to correctly align their images wins.
Winner: Tom Westman

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news but too bad all that stuff happened. You want to go ahead and shoot the messenger? Go ahead and shoot the messenger. That is fine with me. See where it gets you in the end. Everyone has been very deceptive and I am the one who starts thinking about it and ultimately they have to face the music any way.
