Background[edit | edit source]
Layout[edit | edit source]
There are two main parts of Hillfolk Hotdogs, a bus renovated into a kitchen and eating area and a trailer next to it. The trailer has two bedrooms, one of which is a dark children's room with a bunk bed, while the other is a better-lit adult's room behind a sliding door. A small living area is connected to the kitchen, which contains various junk items and pre-War foods.
The bus, which has a partly lit Hillfolk Hotdogs sign outside of it, advertises burgers and dogs. It has two booths inside meant to be used as an eating area, but are filled with multiple containers. At the end of the bus is a cooking stove and other kitchen materials. Some mole rats are present here, including a rabid one.
Notable loot[edit | edit source]
- Colton Pickins's police report - Holotape, on the patio table next to the cop hat outside the bus.
- Shopping list - Note, held to the side of the fridge in the trailer by a magnet.
- Untitled poem - Note, sitting on the bench in the outhouse.
- Potential recipe - Inside of the bus, under a counter.

"Looks fun! I had a blast on our research trip. I'm curious just how many people end up at all these smaller places because of 76. Helvetia is still one of my favorites. That place is great."
