Still slinking around CH, I have a rifle, but no cleaning kit to bring it up to a "safe" condition to use it. I have made 2 bows, but have no arrows. So, I try to avoid and evade wolves, as much as possible. Living mostly on rabbits and fish. No firearm cleaning kit yet, but I have been lucky finding hooks and fishing tackle. Time to go loot the other side of the map. 

So I go to one of my favorite places in the region. My personal "retreat" spot.

Great. Deer, and no way to hunt them, lol. So I eat what I have, and go to bed. Only to wake up to...

I have to go outside and look. Even though I have heard wolves howling nearby, all day, and all evening.

The next morning, it is time to head up, to the trailers, and the tracks.  Knowing instinctively where those wolves were at...

And at least one of them was there, not long before I got there. Tomorrow we go further. I have a few sprains to sleep off, after taking the "back way" to get here. 
But, you only live once, right? So... onward. Onward.

I stopped at the Trapper's Cabin on my way from Pleasant Valley to Forlorn Muskeg. It felt a little like seeing an old friend after a long time apart.

I love the fact I managed to get blood on the car door when the wolf tackled me and I thankfully managed to shoot it with the revolver killing.
 it. It had to be a quick harvest too since there were more wolves nearby looking for me.

Still playing around with staying in CH for 50 days before leaving. I think my gal has gone bonkers. Why is she doing this? 😧

Finally got *almost* everything moved  to the Fishing Village, that I wanted to move there. 29 days in, still no arrows, still no cleaning kit for my super low condition rifle. Still don;t trust it not to jam on me if I try to use it. So, lots of goating and evasive maneuvering going on, traveling a good bit at night or in the wee hours or morning. I finally reached my second-most favorite place in CH, just after dawn.

Not much loot to be found, but bunnies to stone, so we have food, pelts and guts. But, surviving, and not too badly. Though I do hear wolves howling not far away. Despite the lack of loot, the view from up here made the trek completely worthwhile.

Speaking of those wolves howling nearby... a tad nervous, since the usuals on the ice seem to be missing...
Tomorrow, maybe the next day, we will go up, to the rabbit grove, campground and down Bear Creek. Hoping to stay out of sight of the bear who may be lurking there. 

Wish me luck. And enjoy the scenic overlook views. :)

...I think someone misunderstood...  I believe it's "batten the hatches!"  I think the only downside to having a battery powered hatch in this game is that it would only open when there was an aurora, lol.screen_19e5f7b8-1f88-417d-aeaf-3765100852b5_hi.thumb.png.12ef75a2fc51c39e65d380d361d1dd19.png

Found a ballista bolt mechanism with +10 fire damage.

Aurora over the Muskeg, as I adapt to cave living.

I know the cave you're standing in front of!

You might find the next cave to the west to be better... reasonably central between Spence's and the hunting grounds just to the east of where you're standing and up on the Muskeg Overlook.

YMMV, of course :)

You have impressive terrain recognition! I am currently  mapping the Muskeg and pushing west along the southern edge.

You should eat more fresh fruit!

Well I wanted to use the HUD-less version, but it was too big as an email attachment... and I'm not at my laptop right now...  I had to settle for the one I posted on steam.  :D

Did you turn back or press on and go for the "Leap Of Faith"?
