Journal Entry #8
Day 6 after leaving the Vault. Found myself a nice little delapidated farmhouse a few miles out from the ruins of Westhaven. Looks like its been abandoned for some time now. Aside from a few packs of coyotes roaming the area I think its a pretty safe place to crash for a new nights. Managed to find a room with half the roof missing that offers an awesome view of the sky. It may not offer the best protection from the elements but it’ll certainly offer the best view for stargazing. Man its hard to believe all these years I’ve been underground I’ve been missing out on something so majestic and beautiful as the sky. I mean sure I had seen pictures of it from holoflicks and magazines in the Vault but nothing quite compares to seeing it with your own eyes. Such beautiful hues of blue, pink, orange and purple. Its breathtaking.
Anyway I’ve dragged a mattress and a busted old radio into the room. After a bit of tinkering I managed to get the radio working. The sound quality isn’t the greatest, but it doesn’t bother me as long as I can hear some old pre-war tunes. Ok I’ve barricaded and booby trapped the door to prevent any unwanted visitors so I think I’m all set for the night. Think I’m just going to kickback, cook a can of Pork & Beans, have a sunset sarsaparilla and watch the sun set and the stars slowly come into view, whilst listening to some wasteland radio. Man ain’t life grand.

He tells the native population that civilization is fine…
That civilization is a thing for me to see…
So bongo, bongo, bongo, I don’t want to leave the Congo
Oh no no no no no
Bingle, bangle, bungle, I’m so happy in the jungle I refuse to go
Don’t want no jailhouse.. fish hooks, golf clubs
I’ve got my spear
(So no matter how they coax him)
I’ll stay right here
They have things like the atom bomb
So I think I’ll stay where I “am”
Civilization, I’ll stay right here

"Man I love Vault Dwellers. They always have the nicest shit"
"Quick bring me the cleaver! Cutting off at the wrist and elbow didn’t work the previous times, but I think now if I cut off at shoulder we might finally be able to get a functioning Pipboy. Third time’s a charm as they say"

first red star I see tonight,
I wish I may I wish might,
to Feast on some hapless Wastelander’s intestines tonight”

I’m beginning to grow more concerned about my traveling partner Carl. Don’t get me wrong in a firefight there’s none better to have at your side than Carl, but he keeps making these silly one-liners directed towards an audience that isn’t here. I fear the wasteland or maybe the radiation is starting to take its toll on his poor brain. I think it might be best if I carry the rifle and ammunition from now on. I shall continue to monitor any further deterioration in his mental state.
"Jesus. They’ve been wailing on him for hours now. I’m not blind, I know the Legion would do far worse to any of us if we were ever caught by them, but we should be above this shit! We shouldn’t have to lower ourselves to fight on their level. We’re supposed to be the good guys here. Bringing civilisation and old world values back to the wasteland. The ends don’t always justify the means."

My options for escaping this prison seem to be diminishing more and more as time passes. Truth be told I’m not even sure exactly what facility this is. I had a bag placed over my head, was driven several miles over undulating sand dunes and then taken down several flights of stairs. Must be some old pre-war bunker or vault, but where?
This doesn’t appear to be any regular NCR prison either. They were very thorough in their search of me, taking away my hidden cyanide capsule and all my concealed knives. If I could at least lure my guard in by himself I could snap his neck then steal his weapon and uniform. It would certainly give me a fighting chance at escaping… but nothing seems to be working. The Guards are highly trained and never come in alone, and if I try to feign a seizure or death they give me a shock with a cattle prod or spray me with mace. I’ve even tried goading him into coming into my cell to punch me but he just laughs. I honestly believe I have exhausted every “yo momma” joke in existence but he just asks for more.
Before I heard them talking about Levels 1 & 2 which I mistook for floors in this facility but now I believe they’re levels of interrogation. I try to remind myself that no matter what they have in store for me it cannot possibly be worse then the crucifixions or punishments we dish out, but the sleep deprivation is starting to take its toll on me…
