I spawn in Pustoshka. Its strange when you spawn somewhere inland with gear after not playing for a few days. Being a bit shit I tend to always spawn at the coast because my previous escapade ended in death. I think I must be getting better at survival.
After ascertaining that everyone else is near the coast I elect to push for the North West Airfield. I haven’t been there yet and I really want to see it. I am ok for food and drink and rocking a shotgun and pistol with a few clips.
The server is full (50 people) and I am very aware of the dangers associated with being up North. I set off and enjoy a romp through the woods, including risking life and limb for a bloody water bottle in a dear stand grr.
All of sudden I spot something that looks suspiciously like a tractor. Upon closer inspection I realise that it is indeed a tractor, fully fuelled and ready to go. I jump in joyfully and carry on driving north. I reach Vybor and am all set to drive straight through when I start getting shot at.... I am bleeding, not good so I race away into a field, hopefully far enough not to be caught and get out to bandage.
I set off again, but am concerned as I only have 3000 blood. I curse myself for not working harder to find matches, as I really need a steak or 2 (at this time someone is on mumble talking about a big bbq and securing 20 plus steaks from a cow which just rubs salt into the wound).
I head to Kabanino and then directly towards the airfield. I park the tractor and get out, and then the shit hits the fan.
Almost immediately I am besieged by graphics glitches - I cannot see a thing if I face the airfield so I have to do the backwards walk as I approach. I enter a building but my path is blocked, unfortunately a zombie has followed me and proceeds to try to eat me.
I manage to escape, but I am bleeding again, and everything has gone a bit white, I am on 2000 blood. I bandage and realise that I am close to the runway, I go prone and scan the horizon.. All of a sudden I see a bandit run out of the woods in front of me. I raise my shotgun, but the glitches are back, I cannot see and now there are three bandits, and they are circling me, laughing and pointing their guns at me.
I am shot and I die. My time in the North is at an end.
I spawn. Elektrozavodsk. Danger all around. I make for a barn I know to the North. I arrive unscathed and secure some beans, a can of pepsi and an axe. A few more supplies and I am ready to venture North again.
