He was foolish and simple only bringing one bag of rice to help in survive in the wilderness, little did he know he was going to be stuck there for awhile. While Chris was adventuring out in the turran, the the river he crossed to get to the trailer (where he lives) started to get higher and was fericing flowing with water, making it impossible to cross.
