Welcome to the Coal Mine #5 Bar and Grill. The special tonight is all-you-can-eat grilled bear served with beans, and crackers on the side.  Dessert is your choice of a chocolate bar, bowl of hot peaches, or granola.  Includes one beverage of your choice--all the water you can drink, or a single cup of coffee or tea.  Choices of tea are birch bark, rose hip, reishi, and herbal. The price per meal is one arrowhead or rifle cartridge, or two revolver cartridges, and we require payment in advance.

H2O2 is really good for making barrels full of boom oxidize in a timely manner. I'll be a serious component of any moose cannons that someone may craft out in the back forty. I'd suggest you take him up on his offer.

You know this makes me think, why do we always assume that in any disaster or post-disaster game, the economy has irrevocably been destroyed?   Maybe it will recover.  Maybe we will go back to using paper money, until the infrastructure is fixed.  Sure, in the game winter is eternal, but in reality it would eventually warm up.  You might find your way back to the mainland, where things aren't so dire.  I'd think if I were actually in this situation, while something I could use more immediately would be preferable, I don't think I'd realistically turn down a fat stack of $20 bills in exchange for a plate of food.  Because you never know.

The world will begin using Salt as a currency again, like in days of old. Which may leave us "in the dark", literally. Because... Great Bear seems to have NO SALT on it.
The only salt in TLD is found on the forums and social media sites. (#SorryNotSorryJustKidding)  ;)

Something that I am not sure about is that is it just great bear that is seeing the Aurora or is it all over the world? I always assumed that when the Aurora first happened the world went into below zero temperatures. I assume the whole world because the world was already getting super cold before winter. Will:"I dont remember needing my parka this earlier."

So is it just a harsh and early winter on the island of Great Bear or is this how the world ends...

P.S idk where else to put this but who is the girl in the server room in the redux trailer? Maybe the person the trapper sent you to message?

Been living the good life on Coastal Highway making the fishing village there my semi-permanent base camp.

It's all about the bait...

60 kilos of fish or there about, pretty decent haul for a 24 hour fishing marathon excursion.  I'm willing to trade lamp oil for bullets...

Now that I've carried everything from TWM and PV to the tunnel, back to the Dam. And I made sure that the farmhouse is well stocked, should I decide to go back there and be in trouble.

I was at the PV barn this morning and decided to take a hike to the bunker near the TWM rope. I stepped outside, walked over the hill a ways and came across this.

Sadly I was only armed with a camera at the time. I did manage to get by them without incident and got another picture from near the river.

Help yourself @ThePancakeLady . 👍

Here's the full size version of it at 1920 x 1080, of that works better for you.

Well that didn't work. The forum resized it down to 1000 x 533. I guess it resizes images that it considers too large. Here's a link to the full size image.

These sound like good questions for the Milton Mailbag. No promises they'll get an answer but it's worth a shot.

@Hawk- Thank You! I like to ask first, though I am sure many people just right click and copy w/o thinking about it. And thanks for the link to the full size image, saves me from having to resize the smaller image to fit on my screen, and risk losing image quality. Much, much, much appreciated. :)

My pleasure @ThePancakeLady. :)

I did crop the image I posted so the full size image is actually the whole scene.

Weather was getting worse. There was a strong, gusty wind as I was making my way to the Forestry Lookout with a sprained ankle, tried and encumbered. But despite its impractical location, I always end up spending some time in a lookout. I love to be able to see outside — the changes in light and weather. 🙂

So... if you are quick, and can catch that nano-second of green time, it is amazing what you can balance on the edge of a basin:

Yes, I travel at night, or the wee hours of the morning, as long as no Aurora is in effect. It is a cold as it looks, but silent, the cracking of a twig makes you jump a bit:

And the fog is your steadfast companion, never leaving you, hiding the things you do not want to see, and gently revealing the ones that you do:

Lol! I think many of us have done it, some of us more than once. Way more. Same with shooting from the Lighthouse, the Forestry Lookout, The Lake Overlook... it is fun, and pretty. But that is one of the prettiest screenshots of it, that I have seen in a while. :)
