I (GalFisk) knew we had gone too far, but by then it was too late. So while Thomas went home, I went to check on the cows and Pierre the horses, and Ulrika tended to the angry lady.

Thomas and Pierre = HAM?
Ulrika = HAF

Cows = real four-legged animals that live on a farm?

Era? or location relevant?

Gone too far, as in done something you shouldn't have done? Or as in actually travelling too far?

is it a pub? No, but it's a good enough guess. It's a gas station and convenience store. is the angry lady a play on the real name of the building? No, it's a reference to the previous owner.

or a reference to a sign? So no.

Indeed.
***SPOILER***
When doing a four man skydive, we took too long to get out of the plane, and only Thomas made it back to the drop zone. I landed in a nice cow pasture, Pierre landed in a waterlogged horse pasture, and Ulrika landed by the gas station locally known as "The angry lady" after the previous owner. The current owner, her son, is really nice and friendly.

The skydive itself was a success, and our friends got cars and picked us up.
