Looking for a job, Jacob after hearing about the booming economy and how the country actually existed from the international headlines, he wanted to take advantage of the amount of jobs that are becoming available, so he would take a plane there almost immediately after the chance presented itself. Once he got there he would look for a job for himself but would soon encounter the dangerous infection. He of course tried to flee and start supplying himself so he could survive for at least a week before going out again. So he did, and once he supplied himself he would get into a house in Chernogorsk. He then sat there and waited, leaning against a wall and holding a kitchen knife. He was used to stressful situations yes but that was when he had a gun and squad mates by him. He also knew his enemy but here he didn't know which one is infected or survivor. As of now his goal is to survive and try to meet with others.
