Virtual Flat Tire at the Relay for Life

Scroll down to content

Sunday I’d planned to go to SL’s Relay for Life’s camps, do a personal pilgrimage, and the closing ceremonies of the Relay. Well I almost made it!

There was a virtual world problem with actually getting to the closing ceremonies. When I tried to get to the actual location I kept crashing. I could get close but when I tried to teleport into the actual closing ceremonies sim I would crash. Think of it as if you tried to get to a party in the physical world and your car had a flat tire.

So early Sunday morning I started walking around the RFL walking track and investigating the camps. The camps are an enjoyable tradition of the Relay for Life of Second Life where the teams sponsoring parts of the walking track.

They ranged from the very camp like “Camp Snailo”

Some Are Grand

I actually spent more time at Camp Snailo than any of the others. I enjoyed it and actually got myself a giant racing snail.


I don’t know if I’ll ever race my snail but I think its neat to be a snail.

There were nature like camp sites. Some in a cave and others under the sky.

A bit of personal preference in choosing this picture, I’m a sucker for unicorns.

Some groups preferred urban setting.

Sometime you just need to sit

There is a lot more to see.

Sailing is very popular in Second Life. The sailors were out working in the fight against cancer.

I even have a sail boat. Although I prefer my cabin cruiser when I feel like being on the water.

Even Dragons Are Joining the Fight

Even the dragons are joining the fight. It didn’t dawn on me until Monday I should have worn my dragon avatar and greeted my friend here.

After all this walking it time for a BIG breakfast.

How About a BIG Breakast It took me most of the day to just make it one time around the long Relay For Life of Second Life’s track. One thing you hear from many people all day was “Why I walk?”

My answer is very clear and personal. I walk for Mom. Breast cancer took her thirty years ago but even today the pain of I felt still haunts me. I can remember sitting by her hospital bed and praying she would just let go and escape the pain of the cancer that was eating her alive. If I can help spare anyone that feeling I will and the Relay for Life of Second Life is a wonderful way to help.

After completing my  circuit I sat by the Luminaria I got for Mom and remember the good times.
