The Flying Tako is a new type of sailboat that uses the power of the fickle SL winds. I got one the night before last, and although I'm a rotten silor, I've taken to sailing everywhere. I sailed to my event today, then sailed afterwards. I had a drop-in guest: Stampshady came by and sailed with me for a while. Although we'd never met I knew his name from his creative work and his house in Clementina, which was very beautiful (I remember it clearly) and recently was deleted and lost in a sim re-set, so S. and his wife are currently homeless. He says he will build something even better. I enjoyed his attitude - very laid-back. He's been in SL since Beta, which he says was the most fun thing he ever did.
Ironically, I'm sailing about in SL, and if I raise my eyes above the monitor I see rl Summit Lake with rl boats.
