Allen who is an avid camper saw the Chernarus back woods as a great opportunity to expand is knowledge for his hobby. He was camping outside of Gorka when he first started hearing jets flying above and the distant sounds of bombings. Thinking it was some practice runs Allen thought nothing of it. It wasn't until he tried entering back into Gorka that Allen knew something was wrong. Allen refused to enter any town or village. Gorka had black plumes of smoke rising from it and other tall smoke plumes continued to form from surrounding cities. Allen was worried but thought order would shortly come. It wasn't until Allen ran out of food and water that he needed to finally enter a city and see what was happening.
