      So i am 70 hrs into the game and when i fast traveled to any location it showed that i have started a quest called "Clearing the way for Red Rocket truck stop" then it , as it does with any other quest, showed me the first objective which was " talk to Preston Garvey" and then as soon as that showed up it had completed the objective by itself. The quest didnt complete so it stays in my quest log. Any ideas on what/how to fix this
