security guard for 23 years on vacation in Russia when the events unfolded in 2017 in southern Zegoria, as the days of the events unraveled, a group of us banded together and headed east to reunite a child that had been separated from his family. I befriended a local by the name of Dimitri, he and myself joined a group of locals that where planning to travel East via boats to the city of Elektrovodsk. When we arrived to our surprise a group of military and private boats had arrived there before us there plan was to rescue as many as possible and head back south. Dimitri the myself began looking for the childs family right away 2 days later we reunited them with the child. Over the next week that passed strange events back in Chernogorsk had unfolded bombing and gun fire could be heard in the distance on night on the 19 of july the sky was glowing a crazy red. Some reports came from the military we ran into they said that a large cruise ship to the North had gone missing just off the coast and presumed sunk, Dimitri and myself decided then and there to gear up and head toward the last known location on radar. We spent the next few days gathering supplies and gear for our trek to the North.
