  1. Gooner, I'm enthralled reading this. Thank you for the plethora of fine screens as well. Can't wait to see how #2 fares as time wears on.
  2. I know at least one of the wikis is woefully out of date, perhaps the one that says the dam has a fire barrel? I hope it does, but my searching says no. Can someone put this to rest for me?

    Rosehips contain loads of vitamin C but most is lost through drying and storage. Luckily it seems our survivor is brewing them fairly fresh.
  4. @Ahatch thank you for sharing your playthrough. Your struggle at the beginning reminds me of my current predicament at 25(ish?) days into my most successful 'loper run. Currently in CH at Fishing Huts with poor weather, no fuel, no bow, deteriorating condition, zero skin clothing, and a handful of pelts. You've given me the courage to pick it up after a few leery days away to try to make the Ravine and then Camp Office to get a bow and clothes together. Hopefully my poor gal can make it to 180+ days as well!
  5. Cullam, I have to agree with Glauron - thus far this thread is fantastic! Can't wait to hear more of Bjorn besting his world one potion at a time.
  6. Curious about this as well. Will check tonight, if I remember.
  7. Yeah, both inside (to try to get it to die where it spawned - or maybe they fixed that?) and outside for different wolves I've shot near Quonset. A couple were recovered around Quonset (maybe the ones I waited inside for) and a couple I've never located. You make a great point, I will try crouching after pursuing enough not to lose them. I didn't think I was too close near the end, since I was well back from the Weak Ice line, but I may have been.
  8. Has anyone else had the experience, recently, of shooting an animal (wolf, bear, or deer) and had them run away in a straight line forever? First was the wolf near the Fishing Camp on CH: he ran toward Rockfall until he ran up some rocks I couldn't follow. Been looking/listening for crows in the area for days to no avail. Second was the bear near BC Campground: he ran across the stream and up the hills toward the single Fishing Cabin until I couldn't pursue. Same as before, no sign of crows in the clearest of weather. Another was a wolf between Misanthropes and Waterfront Cottages: he ran directly toward the sea until he hit the edge, went left toward the island you can't get to off the coast of Commuter's and died out on the thin ice. I am playing on custom (don't have the code on me) with their fear set higher than normal, so maybe a specific circumstance. I also have the detection range (non-scented) smaller, so it seems to me they should stop fleeing closer to me as well although, admittedly, I know nothing of how these mechanics actually work.
  9. Thank you @jeffpeng, I thoroughly enjoyed reading through your sleepwalking adventures.
  10. My cousin and I went camping in the Black Forest for the winter solstice in 2016. We came prepared and didn't come into any real trouble - we did get caught in the dark hiking in because we didn't manage our time getting there. We spent pretty much every hour of two days fetching water, cutting and drying wood, and insulating our bivvy with conifer branches (only downed stuff) so we could be a little comfortable. It was a lot of fun. Nowhere close to life-or-death but definitely my most serious survival experience.
