Mark highlighted that he grew tired of fighting the deadly gangs that controlled the flow of water to his town and wished that he could return to a simpler time when the Wastelands were known as Wellington County.

Times were much simpler back then. I only had to worry about the horrors of free roaming clowns, and buying my daily meals rather than hunting in a radiated desert waste”
