The Drag is what locals call the road that cuts thru Redmond between Renton and Puyallup, and it has enough traffic to support a variety of businesses. While it is little more than a strip mall, in the Barrens even this is enough of an oddity to attract tourists. Ghetto day-trippers from downtown or out of town(known chidingly as Barons for the way they lord themselves over the Barrens denizens) gather daily to take selfies with bums and buy knuckleduster charm bracelets to show their posh friends back home how daring they are. And it does require some amount of daring. The Drag is one of the few places in the Barrens with a Lone Star response time that isn’t measured in days, but that isn’t enough to dull the tempting sheen of tourist nuyen to the various criminal elements that abide. Some say the vendors are the worst thieves, but the truth is that the local gangs all tend to view The Drag as their prime turf simultaneously, which leads to a not-insignificant number of tourist injuries and deaths each year. But hey, that’s part of the draw: to run The Drag and make it back with a story to tell, or a fist full of kitchey crap. This has, however, made it the ideal market model for Obscure Couriers, which has one of it’s most successful branches here.
