Hans and Rigsdale, within 6 weeks, were assigned yet another crate to retrieve; this one in some forgotten corner of northern Bolivia. The two were easily able to secure transport and preparations; their skill and discretion have earned them a sizable fortune from Mr. Ross.
In La Paz, the team secured provisions and donkeys to travel in the Bolivian jungle. The two were warned by locals that the territory was a no-mans-land occupied and controlled by a local group of narco-terrorist rebels; remnants of Roberto Gomez’ old “La Corporacion” syndicate.
Undeterred, the German and Iowan set off to the last known location of the crate. One night, the camp was disturbed by a patrolling group of the aforementioned narco-militia, ending in several provisions and supplies being stolen, and Johnathan nearly being killed; the group also made off with Vera, Mr. Rigsdale’s prized custom FAL rifle.
Vowing to track down the marauders, the team soon found the makeshift road used to transport their drugs to town, and set a trap, resulting in the death of several of the rebels and the team gaining the use of a vehicle, which was promptly rigged with explosives. The subsequent assault was as incredible as it was efficient; the camp was utterly destroyed in a display of violence and mayhem not seen around those parts before or since. Flaming corpses, ruined buildings, and remains of exploded truck carcasses, strewn about; the smell of burning cocaine hanging in the air as the toxic smoke billowed into the air, and burnt bodies piled around the camp.
Having retrieved their gear, Hans and Rigsdale also came across their objective crate in the ruins. Upon notifying their employer of their findings, including the camp, a helicopter was soon dispatched, accompanied by a Bolivian military escort, to retrieve the players; The miltary secured the now obliterated camp and burned the coca fields while the Guttmann helo carted the team back to La Paz.
Upon return to New York and delivery of the package, the duo was given a generous bonus by Mr. Ross; an all expenses paid, fully comped weekend at the MGM Grand Hotel & Casino, in Las Vegas.
