"Do you really think there are no larger answers to the small ones we can supply? Miguel, we know there are answers for everything. Unfortunately, we know very few of them." (Alexis Paninian to Mitchell Campion following a 4 minute teleportation from Paxton, Ohio to 3XNorth, 3YEast and 150Z off the Coast of Spain, circa 5/28 & 3 weeks, OSB airdate 4/7/1959).

Farthest North and a New Line of Trousers

Trousers got wormen arrested in 1890.
Ruby says being comfortable is worth the risk.
I am a proud to say that I've pulled together my trouser aka bloomer apparel line.  It came about after a year of experimenting with what I want to wear, and only finding a couple of shops that produce the clothes I like.  I determined a long while ago that I would sew clothes women could use while steering airships, boats and carts, or riding horses.  The skirts that go with the trouser suits can be worn in a rush.  Nobody wants to be arrested on the city streets of greater Caledon.  It isn't a problem in Austal, of course.  That is why I love living in Austral.  The State encourages avant garde, but it is not known if the history of 1890 repeats in other places.  A skirt is always a good piece of clothing to have at hand.

My new shop is being set up to sell the clothes.  The tour store will also sell the garments, but its main function is to schedule storytelling tours for visitors to the Steamlands.  The new little clothing outlet in Winterfell is small, but sufficient.  It was my hope to put up a Weary WayStation in the farthest north location that allowed 100M airship travel.  A 512M parcel works well to house the "trouser" shop and the WayStation.  As a courtesy to shoppers and travellers I allow anyone to park their ship at the WayStation for 3 hours.  At 262M the WayStation is up and out of the flow of street traffic and hubub, a mess that often brings an airship to a standstill and an awful result.

Weary WayStation No. 2, Absinthe, Winterfell

Another terminal was built at Ghennyn Heath Plots.  Weary WayStation No. 3 is a statement.  Keep the airways clear for travel.  It raises the parcel value of the entire region.
