So I stayed there a few days recovering, reading a book I found there, and playing with the forge. I had enough food with what was there and what I brought so it wasn't a problem. I kill a wolf wandering around the property and cook them on the still hot forge to stock up some meat for the Trek back home.
Again the wolves kept bothering me. I killed two more left their hides but carried the meat. I was going for a shelter to hunker down and cook it. Then I saw another bear.
I think I've got my bear killing technique down now. See, first you let them maul you so they get all cocky. Then after you stand up and bandage your bleeding wounds, he's walking around overconfident, THEN you shoot him as he's charging you for the second time. I mean, n = 2, but so far it's been a 100% technique for me. It killed me to leave 36 kg of bear meat behind, but I did take his skin.
As I left the save I have slept in a snow shelter overnight healing my wounds, cooking that troublesome wolf meat, and trying to repair my clothes. When I wake up next time try to make it back into the mountain town without coffee to climb the ropes. We'll see.

Both of my longer games are still saved, but I moved on to trying stalker difficulty. First one got killed pretty quickly. Froze to death trying to get out of the trapper's cabin in Mystery lake. Blizzard stopped me from lighting a fire. Second one killed in 5 days by three wolves at once. Not timber wolves in a pack, but 3 regular wolves all visible at the same time attacking me pretty much in succession. I had the damn revolver, too; that thing doesn't do enough damage for what it's supposed to be (.44 Mag or .45 LC). The new one has lasted about 9 days. I still can't find a hatchet, though, and it's becoming a real problem.

Bear #3 down to my patented 'play dead' method. That's a lot of meat to carry back to the homestead, but it's too valuable to leave. With Cooking 5 they're 1125 Cal each. I'm relaying it this time instead of trying to slog it back hugely overweight.
I'm about 45 days in on this one, fully equipped and have enough food to last 50 or 60 days - again not counting rabbits. My limitations now are actually matches because I didn't understand the torch method and wasted a lot of matches getting to Fire 5. Reclaimed wood to make snares is also getting a little bit scarce, and I've stopped burning it for fires.

You still playing stain?
I think I've officially got this game beat now. I can survive basically forever now, only limited by exhausting non-renewable resources like scrap metal to make fishing hooks or birch to make arrows. Now that I've found the magnifying glass, fire is no longer a problem. I'm exploring now just for the sake of it, but I no longer need to. I'm at 112 days.
