Springfield Jobs – Act III Calendar and Numbers for Getting it All!

WOW…Act II was long. But, it was also EAsy…in that I had more than a full week of grinding for Bonuts, after I finished the quest line, and collected all of the prizes.  I have a sense that Act III is going to be the same way…

I wish I could say that I am looking forward to the great prizes in Act III…but, the fact is, I am still working on making my London layout everything it can be, and don’t care much for a rehash of Burns’ Casino, that isn’t the same Casino, from a legitimately great Event (Burns’s Casino), that gave us a ton of gambling/resort related stuff.  This feels like a retread…and is yet another argument for MAKING THE EVENTS TWO ACTS!!!!

OK. Rant over.

As I said, if you have been storing up a cache of Crafting Currency, and did the wise thing of not collecting your Daily Challenge currency for the past three days, you are going to come out of the blocks quickly. If not, I don’t think it matters…you will still “Get Everything” as it pertains to the Prize Track.

Let’s take a look at the numbers…

Friday Filler – London Calling and More Town Tours

Thank Grog It’s Firday!

I have to admit, I have enjoyed Act II of this over-extended, insanely grind-tastic event.  Mostly for selfish reasons. It has actually created some serious conversations between my wife and I about taking a “once in a lifetime” (actually twice) trip to Europe, before we croak.

As of late, the vast majority of our time and treasure has been dedicated to our kids, as in 5 college educations, 4 weddings (one to go) and a ton of travel to “see the kids” who are spread out all over the place, North, South, East and Northwest. Add grandkids (one due any minute!), and you have additional reasons to make your travel time, “family time.”  There’s nothing wrong with that. But does lack a bit of variety (even though we turned one into a 9.600 mile, 30-day cross country trip a couple of summers ago).

But…we both did extended trips to Europe when we were young. For me…that was almost 50 years ago. I hear a lot has changed in 50 years… When I went, there was still a Berlin Wall…a Communist help Czechoslovakia, and a ton of debris left over from 2 world wars. So…yes…change is good!

When we began our “world tour” in TSTO, it got me wishing that could go back again, and see some of our favorite spots, as well as check a few boxes off of the “I really want to see that…”  list that has grown over the years. I want to return to the British Isles, including Ireland (at least 2 weeks) and Deb wants to return to Spain and Italy, while adding France and Denmark into the mix for extended family. I also want to tour some WWI battlefields in France and Belgium, and want to go to Austria, Germany and Switzerland again. So…yes…this would be a HUGE, long trip, which we will have to wedge in between a trip to Uganda, another wedding, and who knows how many more grandkids. Retirement?  Pfffffffftttttttttttt… not gonna happen.

But in the meantime, I can visit the imaginative towns and places that have cropped up as a result of my “Town Tours” feature, started a couple of weeks back.  This week, I’m focusing on a couple more “Friends of Ebron,” as well one of my favorite neighbors, and a look at my own English homage.
