Drive downhill, then cross a bridge on foot to reach a new vehicle. Continue along the road to a field to your left, with a monster truck and a barn. The barn is a checkpoint, so head there first and then defeat the truck and enemies. Beyond the barn is a farmhouse with a thermos on its porch.

Manuscript Page (87/91)

A hidden collectible location in Alan Wake Image: Remedy Entertainment/Epic Games via Polygon

Drive along the road leading away from the farm, until you come to a tunnel and proceed on foot past black bits of dark ooze and enemies. When the enemies attack, the best bet is to rush past most of them to a Safe Haven. Just ahead of that light, a manuscript page is lying on the ground. You can reach the checkpoint, then backtrack a few steps to safely retrieve it.

Manuscript Page (88/91)

A hidden collectible location in Alan Wake Image: Remedy Entertainment/Epic Games via Polygon

Drive straight along the road, passing through some construction signs that represent a barrier. At the end, you’ll find some vehicles and rocks blocking a tunnel, with a manuscript page on the truck’s sideboard.

Sign (24/25)

Return to where you drove through the signs and notice a dirt road leading uphill past a large sign that says “Larsen’s.” Along the left side of the dirt road, there is a small white sign posted on some fence that you should stop to read.

Chest (27/30)

Travel up the hill to the wrecking yard and park near the Safe Haven. Run along the building’s left side to find a backyard with the chest against a wall directly ahead of you.

Once the gate is open, drive through it and start uphill. You will approach a ramp. Get out of the vehicle ahead of that ramp and explore the area to the right to find a thermos on a palette.

Manuscript Page (89/91)

A hidden collectible location in Alan Wake Image: Remedy Entertainment/Epic Games via Polygon

After passing over the ramp, you’ll need to travel on foot again to reach a Safe Haven. Check next to that light to find the manuscript page on a stovetop next to some supplies.

Chest (28/30)

A hidden collectible location in Alan Wake Image: Remedy Entertainment/Epic Games via Polygon

On your way out of the wrecking yard, you will fight some enemies and then press a switch to raise a crate so you can proceed to the next Safe Haven and commandeer a pickup truck. Drive it up the next hill to another Safe Haven. Look to the left from there to find a shack with the chest.

Coffee Thermos (96/100)

A hidden collectible location in Alan Wake Image: Remedy Entertainment/Epic Games via Polygon

Continue your journey through the area. Push a cart out of your way and pass through an opening, then proceed through an area with numerous ramshackle buildings, where the dark presence attacks. One of the buildings to your right here, with a “Hollowax” sign on its face, contains a thermos.

Manuscript (90/91)

A hidden collectible location in Alan Wake Image: Remedy Entertainment/Epic Games via Polygon

You will soon need to use a spotlight to fend off a wave of enemies. After you defeat them all, note the building near that stage with a minecart blocking its door. Push the cart out of your way and enter the building, then look on the fireplace for a manuscript page.

Chest (29/30)

A hidden collectible location in Alan Wake Image: Remedy Entertainment/Epic Games via Polygon

After taking a brief ride in a minecart with birds for company, head to the Safe Haven. Pass through a hollow train car and explore the rocky area to the left to find the chest.

Coffee Thermos (97/100)

A hidden collectible location in Alan Wake Image: Remedy Entertainment/Epic Games via Polygon

Return to the Safe Haven and climb the ladder onto the overhead tracks. Push the minecart along that wooden platform so it falls off, but watch for the birds. Then proceed and battle a second flock. Past them, a thermos rests on the platform, left of a wooden pole.

Coffee Thermos (98/100)

A hidden collectible location in Alan Wake Image: Remedy Entertainment/Epic Games via Polygon

Keep going and start down a mountain trail. A truck falls out of the sky and lands ahead of you. Continue past it and veer left ahead of the cliff to finally reach some shacks with a generator you can start to produce a Safe Haven. Past there, follow the trail to the point where a chunk of building falls. Veer left as you advance to find an abandoned train car with a thermos near one end, in an area where many Taken attack. Enter from the car’s open side and ascend to the thermos to grab it easily.

Chest (30/30)

A hidden collectible location in Alan Wake Image: Remedy Entertainment/Epic Games via Polygon

Continue uphill and to the left past the abandoned train car and a boat, and keep going through the area until you ascend some wooden stairs and reach a Safe Haven. From there, climb a few more stairs and reach their top. Check the building to the right for a chest.

Coffee Thermos (99/100)

A hidden collectible location in Alan Wake Image: Remedy Entertainment/Epic Games via Polygon

Climb to the second floor of the building where you found the chest, and look for an opening where boards extend toward an open area with buildings along the edges ahead of you. Jump down into that area, then quickly turn around and follow the building around its left side and behind a metal structure. A thermos rests in the grass near the fence.

Manuscript Page (91/91)

A hidden collectible location in Alan Wake Image: Remedy Entertainment/Epic Games via Polygon

Once you get the generator going, you’ll need to defeat some enemies to cross to the elevator and press its switch. Let the enemies chase you so they run into wires, allowing you to defeat them quickly without expending ammo. Then press the switch. When the elevator arrives on your level, step onto it and ride it to the higher platform, where the manuscript page is waiting directly ahead of you.

Coffee Thermos (100/100)

Once you appear back in your apartment, complete some simple objectives and trigger a cutscene. Once it concludes, you find yourself surrounded by words. One of them, near the couch, is the word “thermos.” Shine your flashlight on it to produce the desired object.
