A Historic Hypergrid Jump with HGAC

 1/5/12 - Sarvana at Gateway 1 with HGAC
(That's me in the green top and black boots)
Although it has been several days since the first Hypergrid Adventurers Club (HGAC) meeting and hypergrid jump of 2012, I am still very excited about the OpenSim experience. The HGAC group leader and founder, Pathfinder Lester (aka John Lester, Director of Community Development at ReactionGrid) had prepared a great navigation plan for teleporting from JokaydiaGRID's Scooter to Gateway1 to GermanGrid to Osgrid's Lbsa Plaza. It was a thrill to experience the historic, multiple stop hypergrid jump with virtual-based networking partners and colleagues even a few Facebook friends. I can barely wait to explore other functional hypergrid landmarks that have been verified by the Hypergrid Adventurers Club. 

 This little avatar definitely felt like a true "pioneer" during the jumps.  Sometime ago, Sally Cherry (RL writer) shared her thoughts about the hypergrid with Miriam Pia, a freelance writer for Hypergrid Business. It is only logical that I would agree with Sally when she said that we are ‘testers for future travelers’ or ‘frontier scouts’. Thus, the main reason for our virtual and real life excitement and involvement with OpenSim exploration. Our HGAC experience will be shared with upcoming real life training workshops' participants. A RL colleague once asked "Why use virtual worlds if you can't travel from grid to grid?"  Well, we will definitely be inviting him on a future hypergrid jump. 

With the anticipation of fascinating discoveries, I am looking forward to the JokaydiaGRID-OSGrid commute, shopping trips, and networking opportunities. Just a couple more reasons for the real life and virtual-based excitement!  HGAC rocks!!

Heads up... The next meeting will be held today, January 10th at 11:00 am EST. The meetings start on the region "Scooter" on JokaydiaGRID. Looks like the HGAC group leader, Patherfinder Lester has located more interesting destinations. HGAC meetings are great learning, networking, and sharing opportunities! You are invited to join us today or on a later date. Remember, no pressure... participants hypergrid jump when they can.
