What if the food in the abandoned car spoiled? In the future, food could be contaminated, forcing the player to choose between risking hunger or risking food-borne illness.
I am uncertain about that abandoned car. Why would a car filled with food be abandoned? It was close to the St. John Dairy Farm, so why didn’t the bandits that were attacking Mark and Lee earlier take the food? Maybe the car crashed after the bandits. Still, there are bandits in the woods and a car is a not a quiet form of transportation. Surely, bandits and walkers could have heard a car moving through the woods.
