    Soon after I arrived in front of the tea house, Storm dropped out of the sky.

    Pema Pera: Hi Storm!
    Storm Nordwind: Hi Pema!
    Storm Nordwind: You’ll have to excuse me as I eat curry at the same time!
    Pema Pera: oh sure!
    Pema Pera: I’ll have to leave a bit early today, at the half hour
    Storm Nordwind: Just got back from a Buddhism class and had no time to eat beforehand
    Pema Pera: ah, in RL
    Storm Nordwind: Then let me give you something to celebrate your new land holdings
    Storm Nordwind gave you Hat for Pema to celebrate his new land.

    I started to wear what Storm had just given me, and it turned out to be yellow crown.

    Pema Pera: hahaha
    Storm Nordwind: Gotcha!
    Pema Pera: and:
    Pema Pera: did you see the land I bought in Chokki?
    Storm Nordwind: The half sim? yes
    Pema Pera: no that’s in the other sim
    Storm Nordwind: Oh, no then
    Pema Pera: to the NE of that
    Storm Nordwind: Wow
    Storm Nordwind: Let me check now

    Storm took off and flew over to the 4,096 sq. m. that I had bought an hour or so ago, after I had discovered that there were a few small plots for sale there.

    Pema Pera: did you find it?
    Pema Pera: the land?
    Storm Nordwind: Yes I did
    Storm Nordwind: And looked around
    Storm Nordwind: Very nice plots
    Storm Nordwind: all have potential
    Pema Pera: thank you!
    Pema Pera: We talked about a non-rectangular forest
    Pema Pera: now my property is connected across three sims ;>)
    Storm Nordwind: Sure!
    Pema Pera: i.e. adjacent
    Pema Pera: large forest-to-be!
    Storm Nordwind: and I will need to build a path for you by the hall down onto the new place
    Pema Pera: yes
    Pema Pera: !
    Storm Nordwind: There is huge potential in the half sim

    We then talked about ways to make the land available to the group of frequent PaB visitors, and the pros and cons of various constructs. After that, we returned to ways we could use the land. While we were still talking, Isen stopped by.

    Pema Pera: Hi Isen!
    Pema Pera: How are ya?
    Isen Enzo: Fine, thanks, and you?
    Pema Pera: fine!
    Pema Pera: More than fine
    Isen Enzo: Hello Storm.
    Pema Pera: Did you hear about our forestry plans?
    Storm Nordwind: Hi Isen :)
    Isen Enzo: no.
    Pema Pera: Storm is going to master model three quarter sim worth of forest, don’t you, Storm?
    Isen Enzo: Wow.
    Isen Enzo: Tao.
    Storm Nordwind: haha!
    Isen Enzo: Taoie zowie!!
    Isen Enzo: Will it be a “natural” forest?
    Pema Pera: natural forest yes
    Storm Nordwind: I can put a temporary forest there for now!
    Pema Pera: please do!!!!
    Storm Nordwind: Sure. There’ll be no finesse and I will want to replant it when we do the land editing too
    Storm Nordwind: Later I suggest streams and such running through too
    Pema Pera: wonderful
    Storm Nordwind: I’ll also put access steps from the Hall

    Isen imagination got into full swing.

    Isen Enzo: Birds?
    Pema Pera: and a good place for building retreat huts and caves and tree huts and the like
    Isen Enzo: Crows?
    Storm Nordwind: Of course birds!
    Pema Pera: ravens!!!
    Storm Nordwind: Crawfford will love it there!
    Pema Pera: Can you import ravens?
    Isen Enzo: Corvidia!!
    Pema Pera: Who is Crawford
    Storm Nordwind: haha!
    Isen Enzo: Crawford is the crow by my hermitage..
    Isen Enzo: named for a crow we had here in RL
    Storm Nordwind: Sadly he is kept tethered
    Storm Nordwind: Due to the very strict permissions on my land
    Isen Enzo: good name for a crow..
    Pema Pera: ah!
    Isen Enzo: But in a forest….
    Isen Enzo: he can fly!!
    Storm Nordwind: Yes he can, but needs lots of space
    Isen Enzo: “robin red-breast in a cage,
    Isen Enzo: puts all heaven in a rage.”
    Isen Enzo: Blake..
    Isen Enzo: Bill Blake…
    Storm Nordwind: Does not make me feel guilty though!
    Isen Enzo: sale..
    Isen Enzo: brb
    Storm Nordwind: We get RL commentary from the bookshop! :)
