Okay, what the hell was with the messages about the courier on there? If it's to do with the story I don't want to know, but it creeped me out. Felt like an ambush was coming on. "The divide"... "Courier six"... "you can go home courier". Creepy as hell. Was thinking perhaps it was a joke from the developers since you can't get past the wreckage, it seems to be the end of the game map. Although the Johnson guy in Primm mentioned something about a divide. AHHH !
Joshua Nash mentions that he hopes a storm from the Divide tears apart the courier that turned down the job to carry the platinum chip to New Vegas after seeing that Courier Six was the next on the list. Who is this mysterious other courier and could he have written the grafiti messages in the canyon wreckage for some reason?
The Divide could be referring the Grand Canyon, perhaps some folks view it as a divide.
The Divide could also refer to 'The Great Basin Divide'
or the "Great Western Divide" http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Great_Western_Divide
I think the Lonesome road refers to Route 50, which is north of Vegas, and is known as the loneliest road in America. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/U.S._Route_50_in_Nevada
excerpt from Wikipedia...
"US 50 has a diverse route through the state, traversing the resort communities of Lake Tahoe, the state capital in Carson City, historical sites such as Fort Churchill State Historic Park, petroglyphs, alpine forests, desert valleys, ghost towns and Nevada's only national park, Great Basin National Park."
Sounds like lots of great opportunities for DLC adventures.
Future DLCs Id wager!
"You Can Go Home Courier" probably suggests a DLC where you explore your characters backstory/origin!
The other two may suggest DLCs in the areas I described above. Just thoughts.
Since that canyon goes west deeper into California, the Great Western Divide seems like the best fit. Oooooh, I really hope they do a backstory dlc where you meet the other Courier, it would be so cool!
It felt to me as if this whole location was there to mock me for attempting to find a hole in the invisible wall that runs the length of the western mountain range. Man I hate that. 184.108.40.206 01:53, October 31, 2010 (UTC)
- Sometimes it seems the entire GAME is there to mock you by slapping you in the face with invisible walls. Someone needs to take the developers aside and have a little talk with them. It is both lazy and arrogant to drop an invisible wall into a walkable area to stop the player's movements. Were they out of rocks? barbed wire? thick brush? tangled trees? impassable crevices, nasty animals, whatever? What an invisible wall of that kind says to the player is: "F-you, I don't have to bother finishing my game off, sucka, you'll buy it anyway!" And in this place it was all the worse because trying to go up the hill on the right, I stuck fast and had to noclip out. Only damned game I know that's both worth playing and needs the constant use of noclip just to get your character out of inexplicable corners and traps. Wunengzi 00:07, January 4, 2011 (UTC)
To me, "you can go home" sounds kinda like, "there's nothing to see here" - with an unspoken "yet" on the end :D and considering the sheer size of the area beyond... I'd be shocked if this wasn't DLC-related. Centerflag982 01:26, November 10, 2010 (UTC)
Yeah, there are a few map marker like this that seem to serve no purpose. Here's hoping there are epic DLCs planned for each of them. 220.127.116.11 09:50, November 12, 2010 (UTC)
Yep...once you DL the C that roads gonna clear!
It seems to me that the probability for future DLC content involving this location is pretty high. I think the most probable DLC storyline would be that someone is trying to take down the couriers, for some reason. It makes sense because you can find skeletons in the bus (the previous couriers), and it's also logical because it explains how this person could refer to courier 6.
Divide Lonesome Courier
To the person that posted just above me, your theory about someone killing the other couriers(1-5) and their bodies being in the bus is wrong as you can find the body of Courier 4 in Primm. I don't know about the others but I'm looking into it. As for my guess of whats behind the blockage, well a whole bunch of settlements but also a place that is made personally for the player to use as a house like the one in Megaton in Fallout 3, how it had a workbench and infirmary and chem lab etc. I would love to see a place you find as part of a quest that you can make into a base for all your followers isn't part of the Strip or linked to any faction. Also has anyone on PC tried clipping through the area? Might find hints via that. --Alpha Lycos 15:33, January 4, 2011 (UTC)
Under where it say's "Lonesome Road" there is also a suitcase? I guessing, just like in Dead Money there was a locker on the floor by the ladders for the exit... I'm only guessing is that this is where your things will be stored and you will get them back after the DLC is done? I can't wait to find out what they will do.18.104.22.168 18:43, April 3, 2011 (UTC)
I found a Service Rifle, not a shotgun, on his body. (playing on hardcore)22.214.171.124 00:09, January 21, 2011 (UTC)
an important part of route 50 is the abandoned community of ruth. which is rumored to be haunted by people who got trapped in a nearby coppermine. Do you think this whill be in DLC it sounds like it would be fun.
Once the road is cleared...
will it still be called Canyon Wreckage? 126.96.36.199 23:12, February 23, 2011 (UTC)

It's the start of the lonesome road DLC (hence the board that has lonesome road on it) the suitcase is were u store your stuff it leads to The Divide. This DLC tells about the legend of the 2 couriers who fought at the divide each bearing a message for the other one courier being the player the other being Ulysses--Your friend, Austin 22:41, June 17, 2011 (UTC)
Lonesome Road is going to let you keep your equipment, the suitcase is just a suitcase. SenorNuevoVegas 01:23, September 7, 2011 (UTC)
"the suitcase is just a suitcase." ... mmm, is that like, a metaphor for life?? --DrunkenSushi 03:15, August 28, 2011 (UTC)
