Safari Struts its Stuff

           PC - that's the things you know the Safari can generate... Party and Crashing!
          This week, two eminently visitable destinations,  on nestlife-world, and on Counter Earth grid, HG addresses at the end of the post as usual.

          First, we were treated to a re run of the Fashion Show on Loru Castle. It was a great event, with about 32 people present, from a dozen different grids.
          Nextlife-world, owned by Achim and Dina Twisterling, is not a huge grid but it held up very well to our arrival on the glorious Loru Castle region,  home of the Queen of the Evening, Loru Destiny.

Loru Destiny Fashion Show

Tomorrow at about 9.30 am SLT, 18.30 Central European time, Loru and Art Destiny are holding a  Fashion event, compered by Spike Sol, on Nextlife-world grid, owned by Achim and Dina Twisterling. 
The HG Address of the event is castle

The gala will be held in the grounds of Loru Castle, a beautiful recreation of a real-world small German castle.

         It's a gem of a schloss,  really a summer pavilion from the 1600s, with lots of photo realistic textures...

Safari goes to Dallas

           On November 22, 1963, shots rang out in Dealey Plaza. President John F Kennedy was assassinated, and for many, it seemed the world had changed forever. To mark the anniversary of this event, the Safari visited AAcme Fall's remarkable reconstruction of the Plaza, on 3rdlife grid, to experience this world-famous place and time, and to learn more from AAcme, a recognized authority on the event.
           This is the second of two posts about HG Safari 166. 
           The HG Address for this wonderful place - a must-see in opensim - is at the end of the post.

           Looking sophisticated in her Secret Service sunglasses was AAcme's wife Sunbeam Magic, waiting for us at the arrival point.

Safari Learns All About Eva

                 This week, two posts about two great builds with strong ties to the real world... this is the first post, please don't miss the other.  HG Address, as always, available if you scroll down to the end.

               We began this trip with a trip to 3DLES grid. The visit had a bit of a slow start, as the grid tried to digest our many HG germs. This scenario is exactly why we begin our trips at the clubhouse, not at the first destination, because it gives us a place to sit around and chat while we waited for our heroic host to get the server back online. And yes, that is a penguin. Dabici Straulino is back inworld, working on a winter Creanovale build.
Aime Socrates: many hunters for this safari tonight !
Thirza Ember: while we're waiting, who knows what Aphasia is?

An Undead Safari

        It was a scripting, dancing, shooting and scoring Safari this week. Our first destination didn't quite work out (more about that wonderful place in a future post) but Thai Low, owner of Endivatomic Grid, welcomed us over to his new region EZombie slightly earlier than usual, for a festive load test and general giggle.  The HG Address to this highly visitable region is at the end of the post.

        Ezombie region on Endivatomic Grid is a  first person shooter game set in a landscape of tunnels, streams, lawns, and cliffs.  You get a choice from half a dozen weapons at the beginning of the game, and there are 'go faster' bottles, first aid kits, and other bombs and gems that can help your score.  It's a work in progress, by Thai Low - definitely more progress than not. With about 15 of us on the region, those who chose to play had no problems moving about, there was no chat lag or difficulty dancing.

Safari goes from Expo to Arthur

In 1889, Mark Twain wrote a novel about a Connecticut Yankee who falls asleep and wakes up to find himself transported back through history to a time where the clothes, the rules, and the technology are all vastly different from what he is used to. A great adventure, new friendships and challenges ensue... much like opensim, then. This week we went to two places where big plans for the future are coming to fruition, you should definitely visit and get involved... HG Addresses at the end of the post as always.

           First up, we went over to HIE grid, with a presentation and a concert by Whirli Placebo. Whirli is a talented musician... but what is HIE?

A Collector's Safari

       There's no end to the great builds in opensim, and this week our troupe visited two more great destinations, that cannot be too highly recommended. If you like collecting things, whether it be freebies, or knowledge about the world around you, these are both unmissable. As usual the addresses are at the end of the post, so don't delay, go visit them today.

      The exhortation 'Don't delay' is particularly valid for our first stop, on Kroatan Grid. Last year the Halloween Hunt was a spooky hospital, this time it's an equally spooky small town,  steeped in atmosphere and good ghoulish humor, called Abbandonato. The build closes on November 5, so get your skates on!
