The Hike - Unleash your masked rebellious nature by mirroring the path of purported scofflaws and bootleggers to Robber’s Roost. To access, with stealth and guile we will slink up a forest road to unmarked paths and bushwhacks towards the lair. Should we meet other hooligans, we will disarm them with our good intent and perhaps form an alliance. Who knows what we may find in the depths of the mysterious retreat!
