|Walkthrough & Notes|
'Afore I tell you where that fool Took you're looking for is, I want you to do something for me. See, my pipe-weed is known throughout the Shire, and a bit beyond, and that means I've got lots o' folk coming to me asking for leaf.
'Well, my current crop isn't quite ready for harvesting yet, but I'm a smart hobbit, you see. Back when the bears were sleeping in the winter, I hid a barrel o' leaf out in one o' their dens, for just such a rainy day.
'Go to the bear dens south of here and find that barrel o' leaf. When you bring it back, I'll tell you what I know o' that Took.'
Gerebert Took's journal revealed that Gerebert had accepted a dare to hide in one of Longo Burrow's leaf-waggons. Esilia Took asked you to help search for her cousin.
The bear dens are to the south of Longo Burrow's farm.
Esilia Took asked you to speak with Longo Burrow about her cousin Gerebert. Longo demanded that you perform a favour for him before he would talk. He told you that his leaf was in high demand, but that his current crop wasn't ready for harvesting yet. He instructed you to retrieve a barrel of pipe-weed that he hid in a bear den during the winter.
Esilia Took can be found in the centre of Tuckborough.
Longo Burrow agreed to tell you what he knew of Gerebert in exchange for a barrel of leaf he hid in a bear den. On bringing it back, though, Longo revealed that he didn't know anything about Gerebert. You should return to Esilia Took and let her know.
