  1. This machine has a Carter Hydro badge on it. I'm curious what it supposed to be for? It kinda looks like it could be a boiler of some sort maybe a steam generation unit? Curious if there's any back story to these devices cause it seems like there are multiple smaller ones scattered about the township in various locations. lemme know if you do, thanks.
  2. I keep that well fed status going by regularly spending time hunting those pesky wabbits! For those of you who aren't throwing stones with the proficiency you like all I can say is practice, practice, practice. I like to load up on stones, usually about 10 or so. keeping all those stones in you pocket also gives you auto reload! Today I am out behind the Orca gas station in Milton where there's a least two rabbits and almost always a couple of deer, so you wont be coming home empty handed either way. I've been pretty successful with snaring but have been a pretty poor aim until recently when I finally started figuring out how to line up my shot better by having my target line up between by thumb and index finger for short range shots and more of an open sight picture for the longer range targets. This is a fairly long shot, it seems doable so I am also using my Jedi mind powers to "snare" the bunny in place while I take my time lining up the shot. Now, I am a little up hill on my side of roadway so I am kinda throwing down but also and what I think is most important is that my target is almost center on screen and it's that part of the equation where in the game mechanics, projectiles like to fly to the center of the screen. Or so I've been told by others. I hurl the stone like a bullet, it's going so fast that by the time I mash the F10 key the stone has almost reached it's target... almost there and then all of a sudden the little guy started to move... still center on the screen... BOP! look at the stone ricochet off that bunny! Well I hope you enjoyed this visual narrative on throwing stones. I was mashing that F10 key the whole time and actually nicely surprised it would catch the stones mid flight.
  3. Interesting question you've posed. Considering the varied strategies that players use to play the game probably greatly affects their decision to harvest or repair items they find in game. I for one, like to collect and salvage every item I can find and repair everything to 100% if I can. I've hauled some much crap off the summit that it would take up to 6 trips to get it all down to the mountaineers hut. 18 lanterns or more is no easy task, unless you got some Sherpa blood in ya!
  4. No, actually found it while helping my nephew research Mountain Men for his scouting project. It was in Google Images. Pretty cool, huh?
  5. Came across this image the other day. Liked it so much decided to use it as my avatar photo! Check this dude out... has all the elements in it that the game currently has! that's one hella hatchet? Huh? I guess he just sends his wolf pack out to bring down the deer and probably anything else that gets in his way! all the credit to JP for this awesome picture!
  6. The valiant little tailor was an amateur... 8 in one night, each snare placed productive. This is the most I ever caught in one night. It was most fortuitous that my snare placement fell between two steep embankments in the snow creating a funnel into my dual rows of snares. Either way, like a boss! Now I'm wondering if I had made more snares, would I have caught more hares? No hares, without snares! Where else besides JackRabbit Island could a player get results like this? I'm new to the game so I am not sure if this is common or not? Please comment below. Thanks, let me know y'all think.
  7. what do you call a wolf with no legs? Lunch! as my granddaddy would say, there's still a lot of meat on them bones!
  8. Hey, you'll be done in no time. btw, but is that coastal highway ? across from the blue house?
  9. Hello from Spokane County, Washington. Washington might be the evergreen state but we get some serious snow out here. This is a pic of me going to work up north of Iron Mountain in the Metaline Falls area. It took me a while to saddle break ole "Duke" here. He doesn't like the smell of my coat too much... In case you're wondering, I became the Leader of my local wolfpack after I killed the alpha male barehanded and ate his heart. anyways, love this game!
  10. i got the same thing placing some rabbit meat on the barrel stove in the gas station before I lit the fire.
