Growing up in Colorado he loved being outdoors. Naturally he spent most of his hiking, fishing, and hunting , he began to get quite good at starting fires and surviving out in the woods for many days at a time. He decided he wanted to switch it up and relax a bit , saving up all the money he could from his job, he bought a ticket for a cruise. The cruise ship was named the Costa Risacca, this being his first cruise he wasn't quite sure what he would be in for. He went eagerly, knowing that when he returned he would have to start planning for his future. One night while on the ship, a terrible storm approached, making him quite uneasy. The ship swayed heavily in the waves, seeming like it was going to capsize, when he heard a loud noise. Unsure what he was he decided he would look for a crew member to ease his mind. Thats when he heard a voice come over the intercom instructing all the passengers to get to the lifeboats. As he was already in the passageways looking for a crew member, he ran to the lifeboats wanting to get out as soon as possible. With the storm still raging on, him and a few other passengers luckily made to one of the lifeboats and dropped into the water. As the waves carried the lifeboat away from the cruise ship, he noticed it had hit a large rock formation in the water. Seeing land but it being several miles off in the distance, he knew they couldn't row there in the storm. Not deciding to wear the warmest clothes, also mixed with him being drenched in water, he slowly lost consciousness. Early in the morning he awoke on the coast, not knowing where he was he set out to find out, and how he could make it back home, or if he even could.
