In SL, I do not actually own an island or even any part of an SL sim. I am a wanderer, being a relative SL newb and having zero lindens for now. I have not gotten the hang of SL building yet. This is a scripted island, thus. All locations are from a Gov. Linden owned sim on Sansara continent. I will withhold its name for now [3/28/08: I”m giving it out now: It is Kerchal]. I found it running the Linden roads one night, as I like to do. I briefly thought of using the Forest of Kahruvel for “filming” but it is too mountainous. RL Baker’s Island looks like it has only small hills at best. Besides, that forest is playing its part in another story from someone considerably older to SL ways than I. Check out the beginning here:

There I am!

Then, over a grassy hillock, a stone hand with eye!

This is actually a collage of stone hand w/ eye and the SL forest location mentioned before. Yes, this has something to do with the SL logo. It is not in the forest, yet it is. baker recalls reading about a stone marker for a grave of John Low while researching Baker’s Island, and wonders if this could somehow be related.

    Wow! Is this in Kahruvel? If so, I have yet to find it! I shall take a moment from my road trip to seek it out 🙂

    Thanks for the comments! The forest is not in Kahruvel but in another part of the Sansara continent, more to the sw than ne. I’ll im you the sim location. I’m on my way there to take more snapshots now and explore.

  3. HBA Says:

    Excellent! I’d love to go so I’ll look out for the landmark you send 🙂

  4. […] Baker Blinker did *not* actually see the stone hand w/eye  in the middle of her forest at the beginning of her blog, Baker Bloch certainly *sees* the flower pictured below in virtual reality. It is not a collage […]

  5. […] You now have two forest stations, one on the Atoll and one on Sansara. You have returned. […]
