Take Me Away From Here

Take Me Away From Here

It’s day 16 with snow on the ground and wintry conditions here, only another 150 or so to go before it might end! But who’s counting? 😀 It’s not even officially winter yet, but the Canadian prairies have never considered that relevant when it comes to weather. So, I know I shouldn’t be tired of it already, but I’m just feeling a little edgy! I’d like to get in the truck and just pick a direction and drive. Summer driving is nice…the roads are dry and clear and it’s nice to get out for some fresh air along the way. But winter driving, feels totally different. The heater is blasting out warm air making the vehicle all cozy, the fresh Tim Horton’s hot chocolate I stop for is steamy and full of chocolatey goodness. The music of choice fits my mood perfectly as I point the truck to the west and begin my journey. It always seems a journey starts by going west. It’s always easier driving in the summer when the roads are clear, but winter can throw some nasty stuff at you at times, so its always good to be aware of any changes going on outside. With the amount of miles that I’ve driven over the years on the road, I’ve come to accept bad driving conditions as just part of the journey, and although it slows me down, I’m not bothered by it. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve had some scary experiences, but average icy or snowy roads or bad visibility don’t bother me. The rain when it’s -15°C isn’t one of my favourite things, that floating feeling always sends a burst of adrenaline through my body, making me super focused and ready for anything. The one thing I learned about winter driving, which many people seem to not realize, is that speed is everything. Slow down people, just slow down! It may mean you get where you’re going a little late, but you know what they say, better late than never!

I’m standing out on Route 66 at Mother Road, I can’t decide if I should hop in that truck and go, emulating Thelma and Louise as I go flying off the cliff of the sim, or should I just hitch hike and hope someone nice picks me up. Neither of those choices seems like a good idea! So, I’ll just stand here, in quiet contemplation.

Take a look at the ‘Adette Heels’ from Ingenue, here! These super cute ice creamy, ooey gooey topping and waffle cone shoes are just what someone with a sweet tooth needs! They fit the SLink and Maitreya high feet and come in 12 sweet colours, these are the raspberry. They’re available at the Candy Fair until December 1.

The ‘Pepper’ hair is from [KoKoLoReS] and this is from the Balayage pack. I love it’s short and sexy style!

The ‘Bella Tank Top’ in nude is from Tres Blah.

These jeans are from a previous round of Luxe Box from Blueberry.

You can see just a bit of the ‘Just Love’ tattoo from Carol G Tattoo Wear. It’s a tattoo that I like to have on a lot, hoping to send a message, or at the very least remind me to love, even when it’s not the emotion of choice at any given moment.

The ‘Raine’ skin in ‘miel’ tone is from Avada and available now at Appliquè. She looks beautiful on the ‘Lilo’ bento head from Catwa and the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya.

This is pose 63 from MILA Poses.

  1. Don’t laugh, my friend, but I’ve watched the programme Ice Road Truckers and been enthralled. It’s all about the guys and gals who take huge trucks out to some isolated place in the middle of a wilderness which is generally frozen over, even the rivers and lakes at certain times of the year. They have some really hairy experiences and it makes great viewing although I bet it’s quite stressful if you’re doing the driving. *smiles*

    1. Moz…I never would have guessed you’re an Ice Road Truckers fan! Having driven the big trucks, I never felt the urge to drive on the ice roads, although I was given a load north once where I would have had to. The plan ended up changing and I ended up going to Los Angeles instead, which isn’t the greatest place to go with a truck, either, but for very different reasons! I worked for a company that did a lot of northern hauling, so it wasn’t uncommon to be dispatched a load that ice roads may be needed to get there. I like the secure feeling of ground under my feet! 😀
