    Plane crash (What the date says does not make sense)
    Brian Robeson is on a plane to visit his father in the oil fields in Canada when the pilot has a heart attack, and the plane crashes into a L-shaped lake in the forests of Canada. Brian survives, and passes out on the banks of the lake.

    Brian's Survival (Date does not make sense)

  • Shelter

    When Brian wakes up, he makes a shelter for cover and protection. However, the insects got in. His windbreaker is tattered, and the only thing he owns now is the hatchet his mother gave him, and wet clothes.
  • Ewww...Gut berries (and water)

    Ewww...Gut berries (and water)
    Brian is hungry and doesn't quite know where to find food. He's thirsty, too, and he isn't sure if the water in the lake is safe to drink. One look at the lake, and he's worried about the pilot in there, but he drinks the water anyway. Brian thinks there's berries in the woods and sets off to find some. He does, but then after a sleep he pukes the 'Gut Berries' back out. (Never mind the picture, I'm not even sure what gut berries look like.)
  • There's something fishy in the Lake...

    There's something fishy in the Lake...
    After puking the gut berries, Brian goes off to find something else less worse than the gut cherries. Suddenly, some fish jump from the lake. That's when Brian tries to catch the fish, and eat it. He 'Invents' a fish spear to catch them.
  • Fire, my friend

    Fire, my friend
    In his sleep, Brian dreams of his friend Terry showing him a fire. When he wakes up, he realizes he has to make a fire to keep warm and to cook food, and keep the bugs away. He uses the hatchet to make fire, but the fire quickly goes out. Brian gathers all the wood he finds, and finally, he makes a fire, and he acts like it's his friend.
  • Foolbird First Meat

    (Yesh, that's a REAL foolbird) Brian realizes it's been days since he ate meat, exept for fish. He looks around and sees fat, pearshaped birds hopping on the ground. He makes some hunting materials to catch the bird, and cooks it. When he bites it, he never felt better.
  • Tornadaaaaaaaaaaaa

    A tornado attacks the spot where Brian is residing. When the twister passes, Brian looks at where the tornado has damaged. His shelter is smashed and flattened; the trees in the area blown off their roots; and then he sees the tail of the plane sticking up from the lake. From this Brian gets the idea of diving into the plane to retrieve the enmergency pack.
  • Plane. Plane? PLAAANE!!!

    Plane. Plane? PLAAANE!!!
    After some time, Brian finally hears the roar of an engine. He's delighted to see a plane and wildly motions to catch the attention of the plane. The pilot's a wool buyer, and tells Brian he's been missing for almost a month. Brian's rescued, and the days living wild are over.
