The Camping Trip
Between 1910 and 1930¸ the Green Mountain Club built the Vermont Long Trail¸ a hiking trail stretching 273 miles along the spine of the Green Mountains from Williamstown¸ Massachusetts to North Troy¸ Vermont. In 1927¸ three young women — Catherine Robbins¸ Hilda M. Kurth¸ and Kathleen Norris¸ known as "the Three Musketeers" — hiked the length of the trail. Their trip was widely publicized in the local press¸ and the investigators¸ a group of friends¸ have been inspired to recreate the Three Musketeers' journey. Starting in Williamstown on July 25¸ 1928 (just like the Musketeers)¸ they head north into the wilderness. Unlike the Musketeers¸ they're going to encounter something much worse than mosquitoes and bad weather. In the abandoned town of South Glastenbury¸ they'll catch a glimpse of a universe vast and fascinating and strange — before being reminded that this universe is also inimical to human life. The Camping Trip is a short (4-5 hours) purist scenario for 3-6 players.
