I was an agricultural specialist in South Africa. We specialized in increasing crop yields in arid environments. I thought this technology could help rebuild agriculture in Northern Chernarus. We were first sent to Kamensk to start the process of research into the local conditions and started preparing our plans to move forward. My colleagues and I were not there long before we were told to move south toward Severograd. It was here we first saw the ravages of what was happening. We were confused, scared and unsure of what to do. We decided that the best idea was to get to the coast and see if we could get on a boat and escape the madness that was unfolding before us. We hiked across country avoiding towns and any place where we might come into contact with the infected. We managed to make our way to Svetlojarsk where we found some row boats to escape in. Carrying little more than a bottle of water and some tins of food we decided to head south in the hope that some semblance of society and civilization remained. We managed to get as far as Kamyshovo when a storm hit us hard. Our boat capsized and we all got separated. I woke on the beach the next morning cold, hungry, confused and scared. I searched for my colleagues along the shore and found no one. All I can do now is try and survive. I will try and setup some farming and start growing food to help other survivors I may encounter.
