Grip ideas...

Chest - like heart attack gripping your chest.
Ninja - like kung-foo grip
Tube - you have a grip on a tube when you hold it
Brush - you grip a hairbrush or a toothbrush
Fair - like to have a fair grip... like legal in a sport or something?
Charge - gripping a sword or something when you charge into battle?

Wave? Idk if there is a term that grip goes with here. maybe a surfing thing like hang 10 or something?

Also FILM? (a grip is some role I always see in the credits)

I like:

Film -> Brush (since they seem to have gotten all their clues) -> ?

Winter, for sure. Worm possibly? River? (less likely brazil)

Plus we have our 3 more grips.

So we could go with Winter -> Ninja -> Worm -> ?

so I actually think Winter Worm Ninja (in that order, just to be safe bc I think Worm is a for sure)

After that... we would have 1 more Foraging and 2 more Grip.

Interesting that it is forage-ing and not just forage.... wonder if there is a reason for that.

Anywhooo...

Last Foraging I def like River the best. Possibly Mint... like a mint plant. Let me look at it a bit, but I am totally down for

Winter - Worm - Ninja - River.... or really any of those 4 in any order.

Yeah I also noticed the -ing, but wasn't sure what to make of it.

And also considered mint, but, I don't know...

Let's start with the three:

Winter -> Worm -> Ninja

Cucaracha 2

(I did consult both the rule book and infangthief and we believe this is an acceptable clue)

Oh my... this rings some sort of bell with me but I only have a hazy understanding of what it means.

I seem to remember that this was the title/refrain of some sort of summer hit? That possibly came with a specific dance?
I also seem to recall that it means "woodlouse" in some language... probably either Spanish or Portuguese.

So Worm is gone, otherwise that would have been a contender.
Dance seems reasonable.
I feel like it's supposed to point us to either Brazil or Mexico. Without more knowledge I would prefer Mexico out of these, as it seems like there are many easier ways to connect Dance to Brazil -  so many dances originate there.

Yes, I believe itís a Spanish/Mexican Song/Dance reference.

So letís go...

Dance -> Mexico

ďLa CucarachaĒ is definitely a Spanish Song that was popular in Mexico, which is the only main reference I know. I think it literally translates to ďThe cockroachĒ, and is often played with Maracas. Beyond that though, I couldnít tell you much about the song.

Pass
I feel like it would be possible to narrow down the field significantly given that we also have the red clue to work with... not saying that it would have been a good idea to guess, but I can imagine a situation where you'd want to do a "blind" guess.
