The city is small and dull you won’t wish to stay there long. Varnek is the place we’ll fly to. Helicopters fly there twice a month, a ticket costs about 230 USD.

  1. What a lovely place. If I could set it up right, Id have have all my comforts that I have already plus a nice greenhouse to grow food and pot. Endless fishing, hunting and solitude. I could definitely dig it.
