Joey Hart taught Geography at a 6th form college in Surrey since he graduated from Gloucester University. He lived in the London area most of his life, but was a real adventurer at heart. He would travel to places of almost surreal natural beauty in his vast summer holidays, whether it be the British Lake District or the Swiss Alps. He would camp among the woodlands in these times of relaxation and exploration. It was on a two-week long trip to Sugarloaf Mountain (Brazil) where he met his German bride-to-be, Anna.
The happy couple lived in a semi-detached house in the suburbs of London. After 5 years of a secure, joyous marriage, they decided to have a child. A beautiful girl that they named “Laura” joined their adventures, which continued post-settling down. Laura grew up to be a clever little girl who had a vast knowledge of the outside world. The weeks that she had spent camping with Mummy and Daddy had left her full of the same burning desires for keeping in touch with nature. When she reached the age of 10 she was given the chance to choose their next summer adventure. She chose the Black Mountains of Chernarus, after reading about their sheer beauty and tranquil nature in a book from her school library. After re-assurance that the isolated mountain face that was open to the public was a long way away from the conflicts recorded in the region, off the Hart family went for a three-week long trip.
Joey did not believe in a creator, nor fate. But he remained grateful for the perfect family that life had gifted to him; and truly believed himself a lucky man. Sadly, one Russian DAR missile later, it was clear that his luck was taking a turn for the worst.
