Post Apoc Locations 1 - Wasteland & Wilderness

So im playing video games sorry and being offline more. Am reading lots too so some more reviews coming and I got a few days ahead on writing.

So when making adventures you might need a location for something. It might be mentioned in a map or a prisoner might offer a cache stash for freedom. You might need a meeting place or a hideout of someone and possibly have some own atmosphere and mood. Whatever the case here they are. You could roll 2 or three times and combine them.
