Presentation

This puzzle cannot be solved online.

In the dead of night, teams creep slowly down a pedestrian overpass above I-405. It is empty, except for two bums and a foul-smelling blanket. Wait, does that bum have a staff buff tied to his bat?

Teams had to interact with two “bums” to receive the puzzle, which was the contents of their pockets. No other hints were given.
