  1. I'm only 23, but my grandpa is 82 and plays video games, he has over 2000 hours logged into borderlands 2, plus a few other games he plays. next time I see him I plan on telling him about TLD. keep on gaming, sir!
  2. having spent an awful lot of time in the woods in real life, I can assure you that wolves being alone is not a rarity, from what I'm aware of (please correct if I'm wrong) usually one or two wolves will leave the pack to go "scouting" if you will, while the pack stays behind to do regular ol pack stuff, then to find eachother again they use smell and howling to meet back up. once again, unsure if that's 100% its been awhile since ive done some reading up on wildlife. anyway, point being more often than not I only see a lone wolf, on a few occasions ive only HEARD packs, probab
  3. and this is why I use the forums...knowledge is power
  4. or just scream "BEEP BEEP" haha!
  5. good to know! i was planning on another interloper run soon, summit certainly wont be a priority. thanks!
  6. i would like to be able to honk the horn to scare animals...just for the shts and giggles
  7. aren't they already emergency shelters? I mean they have very small warmth bonus and wind protection and a place to sleep...what more could you want from it?
  8. now that you guys mention it, since the rifle at the summit is a 100% spawn, I know interloper goodies at the summit are bare minimum, is there a rifle at the summit on interloper? id check myself but id rather ask before I go through that torture lol
  9. well I put in some work and finally finished my bear carpet. 11 bears 1 carpet post picture note- just rearranged them all and I have room for 3-4 more, expect an update
  10. as I was reading I thought "its gotta be COLD, but with so many trees, maybe wind should be minimal" you thought of just about everything. I could see myself spending a lot of time there!
  11. I truly appreciate the kind words. I don't feel like a hero, just a guy in a desperate situation...but that being said, Ill take the compliment man it was NOT easy at all, I'm a big guy and so is my dad, my dad weighs around 280lbs (127 kilos) and I had to do that arsehole of a swim with one arm! my left arm (the one I used to hold him) was sore for about a month. I would have had it checked out but once it started to get better I just figured whatever as for putting an end to my adventures? heck no! whats life without excitement and adventure! I may have almost died, but damn do I
  12. I actually went and killed another a few minutes after this was taken, ha! almost to rifle mastery so I was wolf hunting and a friendly ol bear startled the heck outta me! yeah its the mountaineer hut! its my favorite long term survival spot if you have enough arrow heads and scrap metal...just be aware that you should dress fairly warm before sleep, I make sure I'm wearing atleast a +45F (I think that's like 7C, if youre using metric. but don't quote me) plus I don't use the beds, I use my bearbag, unless a blizzard just ended. then Ill use a bed to save the bag condition. good luck
  13. had to take one from my rug to repair my sleepin bag but heres my carpet at the mountain hut
  14. amazing stories here. I actually had my closest call just a few months ago back in may. I actually bought TLD because a friend said "hey you almost died in Canada, its like you lived the long dark!" and I didn't know what he meant so he showed me, and there began my love for the game. anyway this is a long story and I have a few pictures. me and my dad are avid outdoorsman, hunting fishing and the like. I personally also go on solo bushcraft adventures (dad prefers a tent, I prefer tarps). my uncle and his friend planned a Canadian fishing trip up near Lac La Croix, using Zups
  15. suburban living in MN, USA. i like to have my colt 1911 commander (basically a regular 1911 with a shorter barrel) i use that as my every day normal conceal carry. as for hunting- AR-15 (belongs to my pops but ive used it more often) collapsible recurve bow (25lbs-11.3kilo pull weight) i use to kill the rabbits who haunt the garden and neighborhood alike (hard to do living next to a police station-shhh don't tell) Remington 12G for goose season and i plan on buying a classic wood finish M14 once i finish getting my RN so i can actually afford it
