Normally, we would have some of the Dead Horses or Sorrows look for them, but many pre-War buildings in the valley are taboo. They won't go inside.Joshua Graham

Detailed walkthrough

Find five Li'l Scout lunchboxes at the General Store in the west area of Cueva Guarache:

  • Two are at the far end of the counter with the silenced .22 pistol.
  • One is in the stacked wooden crates by the left side of the store.
  • One is on the bottom of the cupboard in the back of the store behind the rake and broom.
  • One is inside an Average locked desk. A Lockpick of 50 is needed to open it, or find one of two keys. One key is inside a toolbox and the other one is inside the cash register on the counter in the front of the store.

The Courier may have to fight some low leveled creatures in and outside the store or inside the Ranger station, but overall this is a low level encounter mission.

Search the Zion Ranger station in the north-west of Cueva Guarache (just north of the General Store) for the medical supply kit. The kit itself is sitting on a table in the back room of the station and requires a Medicine skill of 30 to interact with, plus either one roll of duct tape and one bottle of turpentine (the duct tape can be found on a shelf next to the mantle with teddy bears on it and turpentine can be found on the table next to the fridge) to replace contaminated parts, and one bottle of scotch, vodka, or whiskey to sterilize it (all three of which can be found in a nearby fridge), or the Courier can simply salvage the remaining parts of the kit without using any additional items.
