The entrance to Northwood Ridge Quarry's interior area can be difficult to find. Look for the highest ridge of the quarry - there should be a front-loader with a body hanging from it. Below that is a niche with a shack and a turret, the shack door right below the turret is the entrance.


  • PCPC Some magazines may not spawn, making it impossible to get The Islander's Almanac achievement/trophy.[verified]
    • These magazines may spawn after about a week of in-game time.
  • PCPC Sometimes they will not register when you pick them up, especially if you store them in the workbench and get them from there. If you are having trouble getting the achievement, try dropping them on the ground and picking them back up.[verified]
