Dabici.Straulino: My curiosity is driven by the fact that I have never been able to visit German Grid and this what ever the multiple ways I tried. I just checked using the LM to Folkcafe - same problem - unauthorized teleport. and I tried with the second destination, Star trek - same message Any ideas why I experience this - and I am quite good with hyperjumps in general.
On one of our very first Safaris, when there were just four of us, we tried to tp Fuschia to German Grid for about fifteen minutes without success, so it's not an Atlantic problem. Too many people tp'ing all at once? It can't be that, since last night half the group got to the destination pretty much immediately, leaving Francogrid Thirza surrounded by disgruntled safaristas, who decided it was the red Star Trek jumpsuit causing the problems.

It was a surreal experience to have one foot in the silent tp-frustration laden atmosphere of the Clubhouse, and the other at the thrilling joyous concert of Wolem Wobbit in the iconic Folk Cafe. What kind of music? Well here's a flavor:
See what I mean? Fun stuff! You need to get over to Youtube and subscribe, huh?
The live set was being streamed on Radio Nettetal, and look! there's the Folk Cafe audience right up on their website.
Because there is nothing 'virtual' about listening to Mr. Wobbit and friends even if the inworld band has something of the NPC about them. Edy Rau was the perfect host and the venue is lovely, edy's not doing inworld concerts at present because he is working on his RL music - so watch this video and Like it on YouTube, please!
The tp's and the music sort of absorbed us all, but German grid is a lovely destination in its own right, with a nice Plane Ride complete with NPC pilot, a cruise around the bay, not to mention a small Freebie area, and now 'even' Dabici has been to German Grid, I bet we will all be returning again and again. There's music at the Cafe every Wednesday from 20.30 CET.
These are just some of the 20 + who eventually made it from F-grid to G-grid without any trouble. The audience peaked at 34 avatars. Metro Thirza sent out tps to the folks left behind every few minutes, which must have been amazingly annoying. Some got them, some didn't, and after a while the real journey of safari began, as people started strategizing. It's unscientific, but it works, because in the end, barring latecomers, it appears we got everybody but Wizzy there even Dabici made it. I really thought Miso Susanowa was never going to get there, but after a massive 25 or 30 offers of tp, she finally walked through the door.
Of course, we could just set up a gate at the Clubhouse and have people jump through it. But what would you learn from that?

Second destination, also on German Grid, was Gateway to the Stars which is Copper Tomsen's colossal labor of love. He made everything and there's more than prims here. A whole cultural backstory beams out at you via the many posters, memorabilia and explanations that surround you on every side. There is way more than you could hope to take in during a single visit, including a Vulcan village and a nice bar on the space station.

They certainly have plenty of room.
Very last stop, back on hgsafari sim, Francogrid. There's a dance platform on the north of the island, and there's a Questionnaire Notecard at the Clubhouse on the other side of the mountain, which I'd appreciate you taking the time to fill out.
Next week, don your waterproofs, and/or winter gear, we're heading to a Winter wonderland, and hopefully a concert on the Titanic. Hopefully. See you there.
