    pretty easy time of it getting through PV to the left. i booked past that bear you see and did get chased by a wolf by the broken cabin but i hid in the little car and slept for an hour. i thought about staying in one of the caves for a night but it just isn't worth the calories. Even if i stone and kill two rabbits, that just buys me another day. Got to think long term. Right now everything is calories, calories, calories.

    DMC4 day 14 - i had at least 48 hours until my rabbit guts were cured so i went up to the wing area to open that container. just one can of good condition pork and beans and more coffee and herbals. but i did find a deer carcass. I campfired up and cooked him on the spot. between that and two more stoned rabbits on the way back, i was able to get enough food to stay at the hut and not have to dig too deep in my reserves. i also built a snow shelter just for one night because i'll need to keep the fever at bay as long as i can. i've decided to head down to Coastal. There should be a stim in the transition cave. I also like my chances of fishing there better than Mystery Lake as well as setting up a bunch of snares at jackrabbit island. bye for now and ever TWM.

    Thank you! i really like keeping this log. it actually adds a bit to the experience of the play through. After 2500+ hours with this wonderful game, gotta keep it interesting. i made it down off the summit and all the way back to the hut in one fell swoop. in fact, i made it back much quicker than i thought i would and those 4 rabbits i skinned are still not ready yet. I am going to need a bunch of guts to make fishing tackle. Not for here though. I don't want to start to fish until i find a book and get fishing 2. otherwise, i'll end up just snapping all my tackle. i don't want to stay here and i sure as heck don't want to head through pleasant valley with a bunch of uncured guts and pelts on my person. that is the immediate problem. Should i stay or should i go now? the long term question is where to head next. i got great clothing but need a reliable source of food and of course i need some crafted tools. The answer is either Coastal highway or mystery lake. Coastal is the easier trip but i know mystery lake has the mag lens. Coastal also has the easier forge trip through Desolation Point. However, mystery lake and the muskeg has cattails.

    DMC4 day 11 - time to climb i brought a rope with me to make it easier. i've been chaining torches to keep warm. i like to light a campfire to heat up some tea and then throw a long-lasting torch over the side before climbing down. hoping that bear keeps moving on before i get there. i kind of want to head down and to the right because i know there are cattails there.

    stayed exactly one night at the summit. usually, i'll stay a few days eating all the food i can't carry with me and read a bunch of books while avoiding cabin fever. not this time though. i did get treated to a nice aurora and not bad temps.

    DMC4 day 10 - made it to the summit. for anybody unfamiliar, when you summit with the interloper loot settings, there are only a handful of containers and they mostly stink. however, i did pick up a stim, a 66% firestarter (yay) more matches, bunch of pelts, assorted clothing including another wool toque and the ear flap. and i also got some wonderful, albeit dated foodstuffs. for reference when i entered the crash site, the only food i had left was 2 cans of tomato soup that i picked up yesterday, 2 cattails a candy bar and a bunch of tea. i also had to drop most of my wood on the final rope climb so need to decide whether to try and make it through the night here or in that little cave on the corner.

    made it to the ledge with no animal issues. I even found 3 cans of tomato soup in the one container. I also found scrap metal and cloth in the other part of it...thanks for nothing. went through the long cave with a 100% torch i picked up and heated up some soup. no dead deer luck in the little open air cave but i did get another copy of the fire book, which makes two that i haven't touched yet but am holding on to. so in stead of staying the night in the loading screen cave, i need to summit today. i need whatever food is up there because if i stay here i am dead. almost there.

    not a 24 hour blizzard but i did lose half a day of previous food sitting in this damn cave waiting for it to end. now not freezing though, but will be cold and wet for sure.

    made it here and safe and slept a few hours. If the weather was good i was going to try to run a deer into a wolf but realistically, with the weather so unpredictable, that's just not worth it. realistically, i don't really need the summit. For day 9 my gear is really solid. but i could find a ear wrap and that elusive 2nd underwear that haunts my dreams. by my calculations, i am 60% summitted after only 9 days on DMC. tomorrow's the big one though. got to avoid wolf and bear on my way up to the first big ledge. If i can get there, then i should be able to make it all the way, unless there is a 2 day blizzard.

    plan was to pick up some stuff in the little open air cave and then spend the night in the half-way cave after (hopefully) killing some rabbits there. then i took a look to my left and found the little deer. It was too good to pass up. had to light a fire bc i cant' risk freezing. somehow the weather is still holding. i cooked him up and made up a coffee. going to try and avoid a wolf at the top and sleep in the deer cave tonight.

    no wolves here. what gives? stopped in chasm cave and got a cedar firewood. found some clothes i don't really need in this crate. i usually sleep in the load screen cave here but the weather is so good i am going to press on.

    DMC4 day 9 - i made it up to TWM using coffee more for food than energy. By the time i got to the hut all i had left to eat was coffee and herbal tea. I did get cattails on the lake, two candy bars and was able to stone 4 rabbits, which is a miracle. time to start the summit.

    I'm using this code 8MHI-/z8M-Dw+/-wSWm-bAAA i do have to adjust it to get rid of the revolver and I am not doing birch tea. It's interesting, you can still find them and use them for kindling but you just can't make tea out of it. if i can get this one past the 30 days and beyond i think i will try it another one with the birch tea perk. On these settings even if you somehow fight off a wolf, your condition is so low that it just isn't worth continuing. i mean, i don't even bother carrying any hydrogen peroxide or old man's beard. It's just not worth the extra weight for something you never get chance to use. i've done the challenge before but never gone to the summit. At least if my game ends shortly after, i won't have to do it again. Starting out in PV is fine but heading to the mountain early is brutal.

    DMC4 day 8 - slept in the draft dodgers cabin an read a book. climbed both ropes and went straight for the hatch. no energy left to climb today so will have to camp indoors tonight. my struggle is food. if there is a blizzard tomorrow, i might lose my well fed bonus which would make my climb way harder. i have coffee for it but on this setting, if i starve, i lose condition permanently. no luck finding any stims yet.
