“Have you ever been to Swindon?”
~ Dave Lister from the British television series Red Dwarf, upon being asked what death was like after he dies and is brought back to life.
The emails keep pouring in: “What has happened to Baker Bloch??” and, “Is he really a tree now??” and, “Did he get tired of England and return to Second Life??”, and, if so, “Was it really his choice??” Also: “Where are all these places — Crescent House, Salts Hole, White Horses, and so on — in respect to each other????”
Thanks again to all the fans and otherwise causal readers of this blog for their interest in The Bakers’ most recent adventures in virtual reality. I’ve attempted to give you a bit of an idea about the spacial relationships between Wiltshire County places already mentioned/pictured in this blog through the 2 Google Earth snapshots below, the first looking south and the second north.
The distance between the two furthest placemarks shown in both snapshots, Salts Hole and The Barge, is about 18 miles, or 29 kilometers for you non-Yanks.
Places The Bakers have lived so far in Wiltshire (magenta):
