Rather than head off to find my in game dad or visit the Dread Super Duper Mart, I did a few side quests, then decided to just explore to get some loot and xp.
Dressed in Wasteland chic, I decided to make sure I had fully explored the nearby town of Springvale, and perhaps the entire surrounding area. Don't diss the hat, it adds Perception and lets me know when hostiles are nearby.
It looked like I'd been all through town, except, I hadn't visited the Springvale Elementary School.
Gack! I don't recall it from before so how bad could it be? As it turns out, if you're a Raider in the Wasteland, you love love LOVE being back in school. The place seems to be crawling with them. Thank heavens my Hat of Perception lets me see they're coming so I can run up to them and use my trusty bat on their spiky selves. They got guns, I laugh at guns! Hahahaha! My bat always wins.
Well, I'm not dead yet. Somehow when I thought I was going up, I ended up in the basement with a tunnel, which I'm not going in. There are all of these skittering sounds, and I've had quite enough Rad Roach attacks from Fallout Shelter this week. I hate bugs so much.
Good thing I save like a maniac. I found a way outside but there were several guys right outside the door shooting at me and I couldn't even see where they all were. Reload and God help me try to retrace my steps and go back out the front door. I'm a weenie from Weeniesville, you called it!
