3 Years in Hiding

Recommended Posts

3 Years ago...

It's been 3 long years since I arrived in this god-forsaken country. I've been laying low in the woods and living off the land, though I have had to raid some camps for supplies sometimes, never taking more than what I need. I've been observing others, but never making my presence known. After what I went through almost 10 years ago during that "final job", I've learned not to trust ANYONE so I don't talk to anyone. I have come across a few people and even traded with them over the past few years, but only if I had no other choice.

While I've enjoyed my solitude at times, it has come at a cost. 3 years with very little human interaction changes a person. Most people would have gone mad by now, but I've always been used to isolation and was trained to tolerate it. Still, maybe it's time to start trusting people again? Maybe I need to seek out human interaction? Maybe it's the only way I'll survive. Maybe it's the only way for humanity to survive. We are a social species and we are much stronger together than alone, I just need to convince my paranoid mind that this is true. Plus, I'm starting to get old. My knees aren't what they used to be. By myself, I might last a few more years, but with a community, I might last much longer.

From my observations over the years, I've seen people do a lot of bad things to others. But I've also seen a lot of good people do things for others. This gives me hope. Maybe this country isn't so god-forsaken after all. Well, I guess it's time to come out from under my rock. Hopefully this doesn't backfire on me...

I just got word that my old friend, Hash, might still be alive! Apparently, he wasn't executed like I had originally been led to believe. Instead, he was sent to the prison on Deer Island just like the initial rumors had suggested. One of the travelers I spoke to had met Hash in the prison. He said the prison guards had left them when the outbreak happened, just like they had left us on Chernarus Prison Island. Unfortunately, a lot less guys got off of our island. These guys were a bit more lucky. Hash was one of those who escaped, according to the traveler. The bad news is that this was 3 years ago and the traveler hasn't heard from him since. If I know Hash, I'm willing to bet he's probably still alive. While chances of him still being on island that are probably slim (he may have come back to Chernarus), it's still worth heading over there for a look and maybe ask around...that is, if anyone is around. I think a change of scenery might do me some good anyway.

I guess the only way to do this will be to retrace his steps, if possible. So I suppose my first stop should be Deer Isle Prison. It's a long shot, but perhaps that place holds some clues. I know how Hash thinks, so if I can make it there, I can probably work out where he went next. Hell, I have nothing else to do...

Off to Deer Isle...
