But for those few moments you were floating on cloud 9?

Was your survivor lighter than air? Or perhaps have a sinking feeling?

Was there some bad granola in the plane that resulted in a bad trip? ;)

I'll stop now. :D

I haven't done one of these in a while. I'm hanging out in the Forest Cave on PV.

Woke up nice and early:

Decided to go climb around those rocks out in front there and look out over the valley. It's nearly windless out, with the stillness you only get in the early early morning. I get over there, and look east along the ridge:

Then I turn and look west, towards the Radio Tower:

I settle in to watch the sun rise, but a few minutes later an eastern wind picks up:

I turn again to the east and face into the wind to get a feel for it:

I can tell that weather is coming. I climb around the formation because I noticed some fir logs over that way that had fallen in the night. I start chopping one up, and just as I'm close to breaking the last long piece that east wind brings a whiteout. I'm only steps away from my cave, and get back there and feed the fir into the fire, and turn to look out:

It doesn't look like I'm going too far this morning. The moose hide I have drying in the back of the cave should be ready to use to fix my cloak. I guess I'll turn to getting it in shape and see how the weather is when I'm done.

It's odd. As best as I can tell, it's been ten months since I crashed here, and yet there's been no spring... and the weather seems to be getting slowly worse. Is this the dawn of a new ice age? If it is, what will become of me... of us?

A beautiful foggy evening overlooking Marsh Ridge in Forlorn Muskeg.

Exploring HRV with my nearly 400 day survivor:

First night, no cave or shelter found, but I found a good nook that helped cut the wind:

Got some venison off a ravaged deer carcass, and here I am cookin' it up and boiling up some water while sitting and looking out over the valley:

Enjoying a view of the aurora over Forlorn Muskeg while dinner cooks after a long day of hunting.

Good luck out there @stratvox. 400 days already, and now in Hushed River Valley. Stay vigilant! :wolf:

I'm hearing evil cackling, anyone else hearing that? :D

This doesn't do the scene justice, but here is most recent pic - I loved how the snow floated through the smoke.  Forest Cave in PV, which is a good hunting/curing spot.

The first two are from my second time at the summit of Timber Mountain. I went to a southern facing ledge to get pictures but ended getting stuck and not being able to get back up. I tried to climbed down in the morning but ended up falling to my death.

In the maintenance yard at Broken Railroad, first time experiencing the aurora.

This is the oldest at April 2017. In between Misanthrope's Homestead and Jackrabbit Island at Coastal Highway, facing out towards the weak ice.

Just encountered that fog tonight traveling in Mountain Town, exploring out from the Barker Farm. Seeing the old church emerge from green fog is not something I want to often repeat. Creepy as heck.

In Wintermute that's how i had stumbled upon the church the first time.

Posting my very first screenshots!

Nothing like sipping on some piping hot reishi tea under the aurora emblazoned sky.

I know it's only virtual, but at times like this, I feel such real peace : )
