The team is given encouraging advice by Todd to move away from the idea that they "need to have everything now." Next, the team heads to Albuquerque, NM, where they meet with lobbyist and co-founder of the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta, Tom Rutherford. Afterward, as they head back on the Road, an unfortunate event happens-an unexpected mechanical issue leads the Green RV to catch fire. The Roadtrippers pull over and no one is seriously injured; but emotions are high as the stark realization sets in as to whether they'll be able to continue their journey. duration 26:46   STEREO TVG
