ELYSE'S GUIDE TO SURVIVING THE WILDERNESS
« on: January 30, 2017, 01:05:27 AM »
Hey, the name's Elyse! I was born and raised in Canada, British Columbia more specifically, and am currently living at the Flintlock Lodge. So I have a lot of experience living in the cold, especially since I had some weirdos in my family that really tried living "off the grid". But not everybody here knows how to take care of themselves without the convenience of electricity, so I've written some straightforward tips to avoid freezing, starving, not having water, you know... general survival problems. Your local Elyse is here to help you.

So, yeah. Good luck out there, dudes.
