Between 1910 and 1930, the Green Mountain Club built the Vermont Long Trail, a hiking trail stretching 273 miles along the spine of the Green Mountains from Williamstown, Massachusetts to North Troy, Vermont. In 1927, three young women — Catherine Robbins, Hilda M. Kurth, and Kathleen Norris, known as "the Three Musketeers" — hiked the length of the trail. Their trip was widely publicized in the local press, and the investigators, a group of friends, have been inspired to recreate the Three Musketeers' journey. Starting in Williamstown on July 25, 1928 (just like the Musketeers), they head north into the wilderness. Unlike the Musketeers, they're going to encounter something much worse than mosquitoes and bad weather. In the abandoned town of South Glastenbury, they'll catch a glimpse of a universe vast and fascinating and strange — before being reminded that this universe is also inimical to human life.
The Camping Trip is a short (4-5 hours) purist scenario for 3-6 players.
