    Introduction [NTRD]
    ===================
    Welcome to my guide. This will help you find all the barrel locations in
    Midnight Club: Los Angeles. This is my first guide so I hope you enjoy my work.
    I decided to create this guide because of the lack of guides for the game, 
    especially for the Xbox 360.
    
    If you have any comments, found any errors, etc. please email me at
    KevBowler300 [kitty] yahoo [blot] com by replacing [kitty] and [blot] with 
    the proper symbols. If you are looking for help about a mission in the game, 
    this is the wrong guide. If you email me and talk in all caps or have no
    concept of how to write properly I will ignore you.

    If you don't know what they look like, the barrels are yellow 55 gallon drums 
    with the Rockstar logo on them. The numbers used here for each barrel are the 
    same as listed in the game. While paused, go to Settings, then Statistics, then
    Collectables to find out which barrels are still hidden or you have found.
