I am happy to announce that we have further expanded our land properties in the Grizedale region. This is an important acquisition for future development plans and the expansion of the Free Town of Helvellyn. With the purchase of this parcel, the community owns through its federated land owners a total of 405,228 sqm, the equivalent of 6 regions. The community owns land in 14 regions.
For the first time ever we have no vacancies in the community. Our 7 houses and 13 stores are all rented. The 7 tree pods at the Great Tree of Mowry, part of the ERC federation, are all full as well.
We have always had a low turn-around for our residential units. Our tenants love the peace and beauty of the place. We still have tenants who rented since the early days of the community, well over 2 years ago. Stores have a higher turn-around and are harder to rent, of course. Thus, this is quite an accomplishment for our community and further proof that we are doing things right.
Come back to Motor City with D.J. Jilly K. and the best of the Motown catalogue. “Hitsville Revisited” October 16, 2:30 PM SLT at Holly Golightly’s Cafe in the Free Town of Helvellyn.
The East River Municipal Airport has been open for some time in the eastern reaches of the Community. Located just south of the Brooks Forest, it is close enough to be convenient for travelers arriving and departing the region, yet respectfully far enough from the villages of the ERC that noise is not a concern.
The airport is open to all aviators, with temporary public aircraft parking located at the southeast corner of the field. There are also several aircraft tiedowns for rent at the north side of the airfield; some tiedowns are under weather shelters, and two are openair. Rental information is available at each tiedown, as well as the airport administration building at the base of the control tower. All rental proceeds go directly into the operation and expenses of the ERC.
ERMA is also a travel point of entry and exit, with a terminal building located at the southwest corner of the field offering ticketing and baggage services, a departure lounge, and concessions, as well as bicycles for transportation into the Community. The terminal is at the east end of the lane that runs east from the Muirhead Village. Charter flights are occasionally available via Aeromiao to most destinations within Sansara.
The Second Life Coast Guard also maintains a presence at the East River Municipal Airport, operating as Air Station Muirhead a variety of fixed and rotary-winged aircraft from a hangar at the northwest corner of the field.

East River’s resident GinnerDave Mohindi has opened a 7 Seas fishing station at Hardknott Marina. Here is his opening promo:
7 Seas Fishing has just sailed into the East River Community at Hardknott.
7 Seas isn’t just for the fishing mad, with its crazy fish, ducks mermaids and other wierd and wonderful catches it is a really addictive game in itself. For those who have never had a go at it, it only costs L$1 for a demo rod, or if you IM GinnerDave Mohindi first I can make sure that you get it for free!If you have fun with fishing at the Hardknott Marina, you can take part in some fishing competition with linden prizes and maybe the odd random object thrown in too.
