Reason to live
Andy had been hacking a path through heavy foliage1 for most of the day. His fighter jet had hit turbulence and gone into a side-spin. He had ejected only to watch the plane cut a huge path through part of the jungle2.
He had drifted down to the jungle floor. He had nothing except a k-bar and his sidearm. No flashlight3 or fire. He had to move quickly. Strong winds4 were starting to pick up and he had no way of sheltering.
