Happy Trails. I remember. They were good friends.

— Joshua Graham

Happy Trails is a small caravan company operating in NCR territory in 2281.

Contents

[edit] Background

Happy Trails is based in Sac-Town, north of Shady Sands, and does most of its business with New Reno and on the road to Salt Lake City. They are competitors with the Crimson Caravan for trade. After several seasons of bad trading, and since the loss of contact with New Canaan in 2281,[1] the company is in dire financial straits and is preparing to launch an expedition to New Canaan via Zion Canyon in order to reconnect with the Mormons there.[2] The only viable route to Salt Lake City is through Zion Canyon via the Mormon missionary. They can't take I-80 there due to the lack of NCR Rangers keeping the raiders at bay. And they can't take the Oregon route because they would lose more in traveling expences than they would make.[3] [4]

[edit] Players actions

Depending on the players decisions, Happy Trails Caravan Company will either survive the financial problems and once again blossom or dissolve into dust.

[edit] Appearances

Happy Trails Caravan Company only appears in the Fallout: New Vegas add-on Honest Hearts.

  1. The Courier: "Tell me about Happy Trails Caravan Company."
    Jed Masterson: "We're a smaller company out of Sac-Town, up in the northern part of the NCR. We run some business through New Reno, there on the "Little Loop." Had a nice run to Salt Lake City, too - but then we lost contact with New Canaan, and that went all to hell."
    (Jed Masterson's dialogue)
  2. The Courier: "You don't know what happened to their mission?"
    Jed Masterson: "Nope - hence this caravan. If we don't make contact with the New Canaanites, Happy Trails might as well just shrivel up and die."
    (Jed Masterson's dialogue)
  3. The Courier: "Why can't you get to Salt Lake City?"
    Jed Masterson: "Without New Canaan's mission in Zion, the only ways to Salt Lake City are down the old I-80 or up through Ogden. The highway's too risky - NCR's rangers are so busy here in the Mojave they don't have the manpower to keep the raiders off. Ogden's just too far - we'd lose more in travel expenses than we'd ever earn."
    (Jed Masterson's dialogue)
  4. The Courier: "It sounds like Happy Trails isn't in the best financial shape."
    Jed Masterson: "[SUCCEEDED] You ain't wrong. Losing the Salt Lake City run really stung us. If we can't re-establish contact with this run, we'll be in real trouble."
    (Jed Masterson's dialogue)
