365 days of SL, day 245:

I noticed a cluster of sims with Icelandic-sounding names on Nautilus last night: Ingvar, Tryggvason, Steingrim (Steingrímur), Ingolfur (Ingólfur), Svavarsson, Hardrada (Harðráði), Holmfrid (Hólmfríður), Rannveig, Freydis (Freydís), Helgi, Arnthrud (Arnþrúður), Thorlaug (Þórlaug), Askold (Höskuldur), Brodir (Bróðir), Erik, Hrosskell, Leif (Leifur), Thorkell (Þórkell), Egill, Herkja, Rurik (Rúrik), Olaf (Ólafur), Ragnar, Bjorn (Björn), Jorunn (Jórunn) and so on. So naturally, I had to visit; it turned out that Route 12 was just passing through there, too, so that's where I ended up.

After a brief detour to a place full of helicopters and texture glitches, I walked further down the road for a bit and found a place called Oldfield tires. I'm sure you'd get good service there; it might even be – wait for it – tubular. :P Which is not inappropriate for tires, anyway, when you think about it.

Anyhow, that's what you get a screenshot off. And just because I thought it was amusing, this is a close-up of the billboard in the background:

Ironically enough, the billboard's texture itself failed to load properly until I refreshed it manually — you can see the effect in today's main screenshot. And just as you might expect, the area was indeed rather laggy, although these days, I'm often blaming my own aging equipment, too.

Location: Rannveig (167, 79, 38) (Route 12)
