I returned to Clara to begin tonights journey. Earlier in the day I prepared an exploration plan and I sent out a group notice but no one was available. So, I mounted my trusty steed, Arrow and began the expedition.
I crossed into Varney at the Sevem Samurai plot, a Japanese style inspired area. I was travelling airborne, maybe ten meters overhead, and while exploring the region I met two denizens of the region, Comrade Morigi, a Bolshevick blackbird and Squiffy Rogozarski, a rotund beer drinker in “comfortable” clothes and a parrot on his shoulder. We chatted a bit, exchanged some thoughts on this second life but it was time for me to move on.
Nearby there was a tall mountain with a pirates hideout atop. Three times I attempted to explore the hideout but each time my computer crashed and I had to reboot each time. I have experienced an unusual number of crashes so far on this frist continent and I wonder about this. On my recovery, I decided to head south away form the Murder-Death-Kill mountain and pass through the waterways and land formations that make up Varney.
I entered Minna and right awayI found an interesting store, Davinity Home Store. I puttered around the store and surrounding gardens. I found a couple of items for my house in NKW and I found three new early Second Life maps. (I think I might feature several of the maps I’ve found in tommorrows journal.) Anyway, the landowners in Minna did a relatively good job of keeping styles complitmentary.
The crossing into the Ritch sim from the north western entrance, left a distinct impression that this sim was someone’s fantasy. I gave Arrow a gentle kick and we rode on in and my first impression was confirmed. At the southern border, there it was, the obligatory non-sensical giant tree with standard tree platform/club. Oh, and there was a deer standing up there for some reason.
I was flying aournd Ritch when I got an IM from WT. He completed the trip to Arizona and was in his hotel room with a good broadband connection. He joined me in Ritch and reluctantly hopped aboard a slug. For a short while,we rode our slugs around the region, but as both of us were a bit tired ended the expedition and headed over to Toby’s for some dancing before bedtime.
