The Ghost of Dr. Hobo Jones

On the way to Cobb's Knob, you feel a cold wind, and hear the faint strains of an orchestra playing what sounds like a John Williams composition.

All of a sudden, a frightful apparition appears (because that's what apparitions do) before you, and recites the following strange poem...

'Ere winter froze my hobo bones
I was known as "Doctor" Jones
My scalpel to you is a gift from above
Go forth and fight, no time for love.

He gives you a map.
