So, a fun story.
Last night I was playing on an Orcon server and my buddy spawned up in Elektro. I hike from Mutnaya Bay all the way up there and he dies, and then spawns down in Balota.
I then hike down there, only for him to die and spawn in Elektro again. So this time I run up there, and completely miss him, ending up on the border of map by the Guba inlet thing.
I disconnect, thinking I'm tired and **** things up (which I was) and log on tonight. Right away I find a Zodiak (or UZB, whatever they're called) in the inlet. I hike a bit to the airfield and find a shotgun, a bicycle, and a tent.
Another guy meets up with me and we find another tent in the woods. I raid that and find some beans and bandages - pretty average. I ride the bicycle back to the inlet, then take the Zodiak down to the island by Balota, thinking I'll set my tent up there (which didn't work...).
Anyway, I'm about 40% fuel by the time I leave the Guba inlet, around 20% by the time I get to the island, then 10% by the time I realise I'm **** and the island is a no-go.
I drive the Zodiak up the coast a little to the gas station just outside of Kamyshovo (I think). I see a guy in the bushes so I jump out and smash him with my shotgun. I see in the distance that a van is drawing the aggro of the zombies and loot the guys body.
He's carrying a GPS, map, compass, Alice Pack, M4 CCO and two mags, bandages, food, blood bags, the whole works... plus, he has a jerry can. I grab all of his **** and leg it back to my boat, at the same time killing 10 zombies that chased after me.
I head to the gas station up the shore, dispatch another four or five of the **** and try filling the jerry can, which also didn't work (how do you do that?). I end up ditching the boat and heading inland, and tomorrow I'll be trying to find water and food or I am ****.
