A friend of mine who works at the Library of Congress has been doing a lot of research on the works of Rudyard Kipling and had been running down references to Kiplings Oregon adventures, since she's a native Oregonian and naturally interested.

She was contacted for this article and pointed me to it in a phone conversation. I'm thinking of making a virtual representation of it for Second Life – and also to make it available as an Open Sim "OAR" that anyone using Open Sim could download, enter, and do some virtual fishing from Kipling's Rock.
