    He's on personal leave. His secretary says something about a research trip, alone in the Michigan wilderness.

    After handing off the box to Jon, Ben heads off to a section of the library, grabs a book on mechanics, and thumbs through it, mumbling and twitching slightly

    "Look," Dick says to a local, putting down his ale after a long sip. "Any time now there's a weird bunch of archeologists and hobos and a slighty obsessive veteran gonna come tearing in here and banging down the door of that farmhouse. I know yer a small town, with your secrets and your want for privacy - I'm a man like you. I grew up in a little village. You don't want us here, it's an interruption. So tell me what you know, please! I'll make sure that we're gone before you even noticed, and I'll give you a good rate on any aquatic malfunctions you might have in the next three months to boot. Please? Anything!"

    Your outburst causes the villagers to grow even more sullen and withdrawn. Something tells you that this is beyond normal Yankee reticence. Maybe a joke will help?
