I’m sure you have heard about the cruise ship that lost power and left the passengers stranded for five days without power/running water/hot food.
Well, I know of a group who were stranded for almost a year. They had to eat out of cans that were thrown to them from a helicopter. They were without cell phones and internet. Their only contact with the outside world was to write letters. They didn’t get a change of clothes or a bath for weeks. They slept on the ground and stayed soaked by the heavy rain for days at a time and people shot at them.
