Update 10 - Driving Down D31 to Hohler

The next three updates will follow D31 south through Hohler, Hawthorne, and St. Paul.  This update we will pick up from where we left off at the intersection of D240 and D31.  This is a night update since the sun had gone down by the end of the last drive, so we will drive a few miles to the Village of Hohler and then rest until morning.

I hope you like the lighting effect I add using GIMP to simulate headlights, since if we were driving at night we wouldn't really be able to see the signs without our headlights on.

I suggest opening in another tab/window the region map of the District of Wenzel, so you can see where exactly we are travelling.

Wenzel District uses various signs to warn drivers that they are driving past farms (Cows, Tractors, Bales of Hay), as if the drivers couldn't recognize the fact.

A couple of attempts at signs from a different perspective.

My personal favorite as lighting effects go in this update.  I first added the headlights and then the amber glow of a street light at the main intersection in Hohler.  We will turn left on D140 to get to my friend's house to spend the night.

We turn left again on Elder Ave.

My friend's house is circled in red at the end of the block on the corner of Elder Ave and Locust Pl.

I hope you enjoyed that little drive through, not much too see besides farms, but I think the farms with the fences around Hohler are the best farms I laid in the entire region.  Future updates will look at these really good farms more in-depth...maybe driving on D140.

The next update, we will get up in the morning and continue driving south on D31 through Hawthorne until the limits of St. Mark.
