Grid Trek Magazine

G&M Travel Poster

My partner Gnosiseros and I were exploring around Second Life together and thought up an idea for a travel magazine. We could share some of the beautiful sims around the grid that are not always advertised in the Destinations tab or listed in events. So, after much discussion – we do spend hours talking LOL – here it is. The beginning of a monthly magazine with descriptions of marvelous locations and their SLURL. You will find the magazine in-world and with a paid membership to the Grid Trek group, you can get the magazine for free every month. Also, you will get a free poster! So check us out in-world!

A Year of Change 2019

Second Life Changes:

I purchased more land for more prims for an expanded gallery. Some of you might recognize this large warehouse gallery space. It is the same building I had back in 2014. I also purchased the same Spanish colonial house from back when I was aztec Fenstalker. Then there is the upgrade of my avatar. New mesh boby and mesh head, which meant I had to spend money purchasing new clothing. As everyone knows, once you begin changing things there is no stopping!

Another change is the addition of a fully equipped photo and film studio. Located high above the Gallery, it is a place I work on publishing books and doing private photoshoots for people wishing to upgrade their profile.

So now! Gallery No. 8 is in the book publishing business. I began with the release of the gallery’s first book, a large picture book about the build at Burning Man2: Metamorphoses 2019. Yes, the theme was – change, very appropriate for what has been happening in my new life here in Costa Rica! Do you have an idea for a book in SL? Contact me for details on how you can make that a reality!

Make sure and visit the new gallery and bookstore which officially opens Saturday, November 23rd, 2019, at 12:00 pm SLT

Kitely.com: Seaside Dreams: Expansion and Additions: The Castle Winery has expanded its list of fine wines for sale. There is now a bakery: Castle Bakery, Annies Apple Pies, and Castle Pottery. So, when you visit, plan on making some great purchases of finely made and crafted products! Do not forget that the Wounded Knee Massacre Memorial is an ongoing educational site. You will find a teleporter at the Seaside Dreams landing point. It is always sunny and springlike here at Seaside Dreams. There are many places to relax and stay. Spend a day exploring the many rooms of the castle.

OpenSim: Remodeled and added more art to Gallery No. 8. I installed beacons to connect the regions all to the Open Sim. I now get much more traffic to the regions in Kitely by way of the OS grid. The Gallery is small, featuring only the most recent artwork. Below the gallery at sea level is a beach and house to explore – also kilometers of open water!
