I hope that this was somewhat helpful to you guys in finding the locations of all the barrels. Each person may have their own way of finding them, but this is how I found them and the streets I followed to get to each barrel. Make sure you use the maps along with reading each location to understand where you need to go. If you guys need more helps let me know and we can possibly do a online cruise and find them together.
