Milk Run

Tonight, MoodleHunterD & I went on a Milk Run! It was interesting to learn the WWII roots of the term: a milk run was an easy mission with little to no risk for soldiers. I, as a novice at best gamer and SecondLifer, found this encouraging and comforting. Reflecting on the mission, this was one of the most fun quests  I have done! MoodleHunterD had a blast exploring in Second Life collecting the following objects:

  • Basic clothing
  • Period costumes or clothing including Western, Roman, space, fantacy, Victorian, etc.
  • Structures and buildings
  • Educational or instructional tools
  • Vehicles
  • Scripts

At first, it was a little overwhelming for me to try and figure out how to put things on and find the things that were free, but after a bit, I really started to enjoy the adventure! Here is a glimpse into our journey:

We started simple with a basic t-shirt & jeans (the jeans were actually part of a cowgirl outfit that didn’t amount to much…)screen-shot-2017-02-09-at-7-44-13-pm

Then, we explored period clothing (or fantasy?) by transforming into goth-chic:screen-shot-2017-02-09-at-7-47-36-pm

At first, it was challenging to navigate through the free box- it was like we went to Goodwill and put on an entire rack of clothing at one time. Here is the process of figuring out what parts we would keep on and what we needed to take off:screen-shot-2017-02-09-at-7-53-40-pm

We found some different vehicles to stand next to:screen-shot-2017-02-09-at-7-46-17-pm

And eventually to drive:

We tried out a few scripts- one made me only walk sideways and one made us sit down criss cross applesauce: screen-shot-2017-02-09-at-8-26-37-pm

One of the trickier mission aspects was the instructional item as we were unsure what qualified… We eventually stumbled upon a build-your-own airplane kit! screen-shot-2017-02-09-at-8-29-32-pm

And to celebrate a job well done, we got a hot tub to relax in! (or next to…)screen-shot-2017-02-09-at-8-17-15-pm

Overall, quest: success!

    Well done! Looks like you guys had a good time. That “shopping area” was crazy, but had plenty of fun stuff if you had the patience to hunt for it.
