Lightbulb Walking across two continents for no reason

I'm not raising money. It's not a publicity stunt. It's the result of boredom and a growing sense of futility.

I'm going to walk across the world because I have nothing better to do.

If you're interesting in joining me or just pointing and laughing, I'm starting at 2:00 SL time today (Sun Oct 24) on the road in Oakworm: ( http://slurl.com/secondlife/Oakworm/255/213/51 ).

I'll follow roads generally southwards, off-roading and cutting through yards when necessary. Hours later, I'll arrive at the beach in Platinum: ( http://slurl.com/secondlife/Platinum/152/125/31 ).

I expect to crash a few times along way. I expect security scripts. Maybe even a griefer or two.

See you on the road. Wear sensible shoes.

Sounds like a fun idea. But one of the great things about SL is never having to wear sensible shoes on a hike

That's true. Wear insensible shoes.

Good luck. Can't even fly through because of orbs.

You need an OREO(*) scout/pathfinder. =)

Sounds rather like fun actually, and not a trek I'd survive on laptop battery alone, or I'd join you. =) (left the charger at home, doh)

(*) OREO = "Oh Really Expendable One" and was the name of an extraordinarily unlucky dwarf in a D&D campaign.

Will you take pictures as you go?
It'd make a neat travel log.

It would be cool to go through every sim in the continents.

Might not end too badly. I've been sailing a lot today with no problems.

Instead of walking the regions of the Mainland come sail through (or fly) the 41 regions of FairChang Isles. No red lines to haunt you.

After a gruelling march of 1 hour and 15 minutes, we're taking a rest at the hobo camp in Calleta. There's a bath. I wish Timeless would use it.

In the depths of the inter-continental ocean, we arrived at the ANWR prim-oil rig.
