I thought I'd check out what has become of some of the various parcels of land that I've owned during my time in SL, and discovered that the very first parcel I ever owned -- or at least one part of it -- was up for sale.
As it was small enough to buy without increasing my tier, I bought it. I now own a little bit of my own history in Second Life!
It's only 233m (65 prims!), so I've no idea what I'm going to do with it. Maybe light a campfire and sit by it to wax lyrical about the bad old days of land barons and Update Wednesdays....

I went to where my third mainland parcel was (yes, I moved a lot) and it was for sale but really expensive.
glad you were able to get the original one back Erich!

I've bought and sold too many parcels to keep track of but like you I had a bit of a soft spot for that very first piece of SL land I called home. Two years into SL it was once again for sale and I picked it up and have held on to it for the last 4yrs. In a way, it gives me perspective and reminds me of the joy and wonder I had as a new resident...and I hope it always reminds me of that.
So you're on Twitter huh? The number of followers you have doesn't make you better than anyone else. Hitler had millions, Jesus had 12.

I did a search on my first sim, Heaton (search Heaton Second Life). Ryusho Ort did a beautiful temple and zen garden in Heaton and posted it on youtube. I haven't had a chance to log in and see if it is still there or not.

The Good Old Days when I settled in Boardman next to Maxx Monde (I believe he still owns that little plot) two days before the sim ran out of prims
Then I moved to Clara for three days before the sim ran out of prims.
Over to Minna where the prims were used before the end of the first day I was there.
So I moved north to Tan one (YES ONE) day before the sim ran out of prims.
Remember we were able to just release land at this point and get back the lindens we'd payed for it, 3L/sm in PG sims, and 6L/sm in M.
Onward north to Olive where MaryJane Sunshine "sold" me land that granted prim usage based on square meters! That was really my first home as it was the first place I was actually able to build something.
I think though, if I was going to wax nostalgic, it be over my little park on Kissling's mountain. That was the beginning of the idea to help people build their ideal landscapes. It was where I met Higbee. It was originally what kept me inworld after realizing Second Life wasn't going to meet our educational delivery needs.

Isn't it amazing how attached we can become to virtual land? I have never bought and, but I still miss some of the places I rented.

I like Mainland
I still own the parcel I bought at 10 days old in 2007. Its on an up slope facing an ocean sim, and it is a 1024.

My SL partner and I keep a folder with landmarks from all the parcels we owned before buying a sim a few years ago. Our first shared property was in Stump, though I owned a little PG snow lot in Takalo before she was able to get SL running on her computer (we came from another game). Once a year or so, we run around to all the old properties--Blackslough, Penan, Periwinkle, Cristat, Mauve etc--and take a look at what has become of it and talk about old times. We are together now ten years so there's a lot of old times! We also like to look at old pictures of our sim.
Yes it's funny how a "nonexistent" location really brings nostalgia. I'm feeling a lot of it these days since neither of us is getting in too much due to health problems. We really ARE growing old together lmao
One of these days we have to sit down and collect all the pics from all the places.

My RL/SL partner and I have a West-facing, ocean view just two plots away from my First Land in Yamma Yamma. I still recognise it from the Dutch Fire Station thingummy someone built on the plot behind!
Other neighbours come and go. My Westward neighbour and I would 'bait' each other in good humoured fun on the old LL forum. Egon, you still out there fella?

I first rented a parcel in a region called 'showgirl'.
I build the first version of 1920s Berlin there and a week after opening... the owners of the sim decided to quit.
I had to pick up everything, being a total noob I messed that up and had to start all over.
Almost decided to not bother again... glad I did though.
Enjoy Time Travel?
Come visit Berlin in the 1920s;

Yes, it is pretty amazing. I'm still paying for almost half of Freelon, part of which I bought my first week in SL in 2003. I don't know why I still own it. I only log in about three times a year. My now ancient products don't sell nearly enough anymore to offset the expenses, so I'm paying $100-$125 a month for what exactly? Beats the hell out of me. I could really use that money to put towards other bills, and every month I say "next month I'm going to sell it!" but it never seems to happen. I can't quite bring myself to do it. It's crazy.

The best parcel I've ever lived on is the one I have now. I've been there nearly 3 years and no intention of moving. If my landlady ever decides to sell, I'll go premium and buy it off her.
