March 2021 Grid Trek Magazine

What a crazy month of travel! There are hundreds of cities in Second Life and the Grid Trek staff were busy trying to see as many as possible. Our March issue includes an interview with James Samiam of Space Hub. Also, we will be trying to locate Mayaeight in a new section titled ¨Where´s Mayaeight?¨. Yes, the staff is trying to have fun while working hard also. We might need a few more days as we are sorting through over 450 photos! Expect a big issue for March! In the meantime, here is our March 2021 poster. If you are subscribed and /or a member of the Grid Trek Magazine group, you will get your copy of the poster on 3/1/21 – yes tomorrow!

Here is a list of where Grid Trek traveled:

Kowloon-Hong Kong, Rieri Town-Tokyo, Almalfi-Italy, New Berlin-Germany, Dublin-Ireland, Paris-France, Soumi-Finland, London-UK, Rome-Italy, Little Santorini-Greece, Venesia-Italy, Moscow- Russia, Jalisco-Mexico, Miami Beach-Florida, New York-New York, Hollywood-California, MachuPicchu-Peru, Mont St. Michel-France, Brazil, St. Louis-Missouri, Mad Pea City, Time Portal Cities.

In visiting the cities of Second Life, we noticed that European cities were heavily represented. We were looking for cities in particular – so while there were sims representing Costa Rica, the Amazon, and Kenya – were were looking for city sims. We want to clarify to our readers that we were not biased, it was just what is represented in Second Life and maybe creators might want to look into this. We included Machu Picchu in Peru because it was the ruins of an ancient city. We picked Mad Pea City – Room 326 because Mayaeight loves Mad Pea City. As long as there were streets, buildings and storefronts we used these as criteria for covering the location. We hope you enjoy our effort!

A Snow Retreat

What do Benney8 and Mayaeight do when they are not traveling the grid? They relax at one of their homes! This property has a large two story home, a small chalet, and a very beautiful garden. Tonight Mayaeight added a hot tub…it is so cold and snowy, they might have to wait a few days before jumping in!

Traveling to Famous Cities in Second Life

We have been visiting and exploring cities from around the grid. Last year, the March issue focused on ancient Rome by exploring the Roma sim. The Roma sim is so large that the entire March issue 2020 was about Roma! We will try and visit more cities this year, so we are traveling almost everyday!

So far, we have spent time in several beautiful cities!

We are also busy getting ready for our Valentine´s Day Dinner and Dance! We will send out all of our subscribers and group members an invite!

October Lock-down

This time of year usually brings cool weather, colorful fall leaves, plans for Halloween parties, and a lot of fun. This year, 2020, things are vastly different. I have not posted recently because I had many people in my family die. My father died of bacterial pneumonia April 9th, my mother´s sister died of Covid-19 on May 11th, my younger cousin died of an unexpected heart attack on May 25th. Then, my mother, who had been fighting cancer which had spread to a lung, died September 17th. It was all too much for her, the deaths, the polluted air from the California wildfires. I will be dedicating this Grid Trek magazine issue to these family members. Please be safe and stay healthy.
