Woody Winfree Museum Scavenger Hunt

Set out on a mission to find the things that were carried in Tim O’Brien’s novel. The first chapter lists almost 140 items, emotions, fears, and necessities that soldiers carried with them. This hunt will send you on an assignment to locate places where one could find some (but not all) of these things.
Report to the Woody Winfree Fire-Transportation Museum to receive your orders and start your mission.
