Property in Rainier

Characters: neighbor, me

I was in a small house, which was symmetrical and had a stairway up the left side. The stairway went up to a bedroom loft, while the downstairs had the common areas. It was fairly new and deserted. For lucid exploration, I decided to go outside for a walk.
Outside, I didn't see any other people...just more of these houses. It was a mountainous and forested area, and I could smell marijuana smoke coming from somewhere. Somehow I could visualize my location on Google Earth, as if I had a computer screen in my head. When I searched for well-known landmarks and cities, too many areas were indicated...especially in a chain of islands.
The Google Earth model materialized in my hands, and I shrunk it down to the size of a basketball. It started out not bouncing very well, so I tried to put enough thought into it that it would.
Fearing I was going to wake up soon, I used a bizarre sense of intuition to make my way back into the same house I'd walked out of. Though it seemed the same, I noticed a new stairway up the right half of the house, leading to another bedroom loft. I found my real-life neighbor at the top.
neighbor: "How long have you been able to stay lucid? It seems like you're doing it for an amazing amount of time."
me: "Yes, it's been pretty good."
neighbor: "What all have you done?"
me: "I saw myself on a map on Google Earth. Do you have a computer here so we can both look at the map?"
neighbor: "No, that's not something we can both look at here."
me: "Oh. Well, the queries were working very quickly...I'd search for locations and the whole globe would light up."
A former co-worker of mine was also there, but he didn't seem to understand what I was talking about. I decided to shift my line of questioning to the house.
me: "Whose house is this, anyway?"
neighbor: "It belongs to me. It's where I lived in my previous life."
me: "Really? It's very empty...and from my point of view you live across the hall and spend most of your time there. Who is usually in this house?"
neighbor: "I don't rent it out because I don't need to. All the property here in 'Rainier' is pretty cheap. Would you like some clothes to change into?"
me: "Thanks for offering, but I'm going to wake up soon and I want to use my time to explore a little more."
Walking outside again I noticed that behind the houses was a cliff from which there was a great view of the mountains. There were many RVs parked along the cliff.

The accounts written here are as true as I can manage. While the words are my own, they are not independent creative works of fiction —in any intentional way. Thus I do not consider the material to be protected by anything, other than that you'd have to be crazy to want to try and use it for genuine purposes (much less disingenuous ones!) But who's to say?
