Nothing for me. I think its time to go to the swamp, if everyone's willing.

OOC:   you were kind of vague on hiking gear? do you just want boots, or is there something else?

OOC:   Heavy clothing, boots, some rope, and a small carton of water. I think that's about all that Tobias could reasonably want to buy in preparation for his little trip into the swamp.

Bret forgoes the heavy gear in favor of a pair of high waterproof wading leggings such as is worn by fishermen. He also picks up a bag of sandwiches in case they're out for a while. He also carries a camera stowed in a shoulder bag to get pictures of the hound.

"Smart choice, Journalist. I got the feeling we'll be out for a while as well." Tobias said, realising he had forgot to buy any food in the nick of time. "Now, how much will it come to be, good sir?"
Spoiler:
do I need to do a Fast Talk skill roll to get what I want at a low price?

OOC:   He looks the 2 of you up and down. Tobias CR [dice]0[/dice] Brett CR[dice]1[/dice]  
He smiles, "of course we have the finest in boots and leggings for the rugged man on the go." He snaps his fingers and a couple young boys of 14 or 15 began scurrying around. "Trekking into the Hockomock today? Beware there are always strange goings on around them parts. Ah, here we are."

The boys had brought 2 pair of waders and 2 pair of hiking boots. He opens the boxes. "The boots are some of the finest craftsmanship, and sell for $12 a pair, but I have them on sale for you today for only $10. The waders are $8 each. So a total of $36." He smiles as the boys begin to bag them up. "How will you gentlemen be paying for this today?"

"I don't suppose we could just hire them for the day? We're going on a picnic."

He sneers at you, "we are a store, we sell quality goods. We do not rent gear. I thought you were men of means. If not, we have used equipment, we can sell you.", he snaps his fingers. One of the boys takes the bagged new gear away and the 2nd boy brings some boots and waders that are not in a box. "We can sell you these for $8."

"We'll take 'em," Bret says, throwing down the cash, grabbing the gear and heading for the door. "Come on, professor, let's get this picnic started."

I can't think of anything more to do other than research, and we probably don't have time for that before they get back.

You gather up your boots and waders, and returned to the library. As you return the others are ready to go, and you all pile into a couple cars and drive out towards the swamp.
OOC:   everyone, please move over to chapter 3 here.
