09/10 Relaxing the lock down: Finally! The Russians are letting people travel out of the camp, its been a long time coming. There are a lot of those things still wondering around, maybe Chernobyl will be a decent place to call home, I've heard that the Radiation is low enough in some levels to be livable. I should attempt to get a group together, maybe we can find some old AK's in the city that's about two clicks to the east of here.
10/20 Traveling in winter: Winter is starting to rear its head, we have some supplies and are reasonably equipped to endure at least a week in the cold. we have only about five days of travel left to go, but people are starting to get tired. Oh well, they are gonna have to tough it out.
*It is apparent that someone other than mark has written in this book, and judging from the torn out pages and the small chunks of grey matter, he got it back*
04/10/1 Justice: Finally tracked this asshole down, he though he had a one up on me for using Lily to pull me into an ambush, In case I lose this book again, they thought they could screw me out of a small sum of Kevlar vest, they didn't Account for the one I took though. They payed with their life thought, and thus the dept is even.
04/25/1 Life: After flipping though the last couple of my entries, I realized that I have not detailed life in "The Zone" as its locally known. I live in the area known as Zaton, it looks like this place used to be an old shipping area or a graveyard for boats. When we I arrived here, I was amazed to find other people living here as well. They all warned about Traveling into the city. Most of these guys had the same idea of braving a bit of radiation in exchange for the lack of infected. Turns out we made quite a living here, as long as we keep a steady supply of Potassium nitrate and lead around us life is good.
05/01/1 Bar tending: I have tried my hand at bar tending here at our home boat, Turns out i'm not too bad. I make a steady supply of Rubles here i'm making at least 10,000 a week, its not much but its steady and safe for the most part.
05/15/1 Chernarus: I overheard some of my more wealthy patrons talk about getting a really big deal. They spoke of a place that's apparently quite the hike from the zone itself. The deal entails lugging some 200,000 rounds of ammo and some 150 crates of Cheap AK's over to a country known as Chernarus, I might tag along and get payed.
06/16/1 Arrival in Chernarus: It wasn't easy getting here, but apparently they don't value the dollar here, they are overpaying by like 1,000,000 RU but hey, who am I to judge. The convoy we had with us seemed to startle the locals, they are for sure waaaay behind the engineering in the zone. Part of the deal that I made with my friends was no return trip to the zone, so here I am Chernarus, Pack full of the best liquor I could get my hands on and my Model 70.
07/15/1 My home for a war zone: I found a home, Gorka, for now at least. the town is really unstable and its constantly under attack. I lost two bottles of Vodka to stray bullets! Damn.
08/16/1 Mary: I ran into a girl, her name's Mary, she's sweet. She was amazed at the fact I actually had high quality liquor. I Enjoyed my time with her, it was an escape from theday to day rabble and gun violence.
09/17/1: I miss Th...* this page is spattered in blood, its totally illegible and it would appear that mark left a photo in between the pages. The last barely legible thing written is...* I am alive.
