This is Patricia Tannis, calling for anyone with two brain cells to rub together. I hid five of my Data Recorders in Rust Commons East, but now I've decided I want them back. Listen to each one, and your ECHO device will record them. Once you have all five recordings, upload them to the bounty board.


1. Get a car from the Catch-a-ride and drive. The first one(578) is probably the hardest to find. Go to the map marker near the drawbridge. To the right of the drawbridge is a small house, behind it is a small cardboard box you can interact with. It's under the box, you need to flip it over. There are no visible marks pointing to it.
2. Head back towards the bounty board, but keep left, near the wall on the west side of the map. Journal #616 is hidden under a large mushroom cap. Scythids will attack you.
3. Get back in the car follow the waterway northeast to a small camp. Spriderants will attack you here. There's a red weapon crate, and #653 hidden behind the cot that's turned on its side against the rock. This one is a more funny recording of how Tannis shot a convict in the back when he crossed over into her'll have to listen where her underwear ended up...really...
4. Anyway, back to the northeast, drawbridge. This time, its in the small watchtower, and a metal plate is against the right side of the tower. Interact, and get the journal # 684.
5. Head back to the Middle-of-Nowhere bounty board, go upstairs and into the shack on top where Hudson Johns is standing outside. Journal #718 is hidden in between the big box and the outside wall behind Hudson Johns. All done!.


Thank you for returning my journal recordings. I know that you listened to them, so now I ask that you apply blunt force trauma to your head until you forget what you heard. Those journals are private and personal.
