What are your travel dreams?
Ever since my "mean teacher" went to the Bahamas when I was in the 7th grade or so, I've always been interested in travel since. This interest also sparked the birth of my mind game. Since probably around 2000 or so have I had the most travel-related dreams. These dreams, in general, have a lot to do with travel and vacations with little in the way of exploration.
Noteworthy dreams in this category:
5-6: Ideas from this dream were used in my story "The Legend of the 10 Elemental Masters".
5-11: I wished that this dream would recur as I liked it a lot.
5-19: This dream hinted at an event to occur just 5 days later. By then, one of my previous neighbor's dogs (the hunter) jumped the fence and killed one of my dogs.
5-20: This dream was featured in one of my stories.
5-26: A "teacher" I had in elementary school is mentioned here.
5-28: I've called my home town's planners and things to offer a suggestion involving this dream (except a much cheaper version than what my dream mentions).
5-30: This dream may go in the exploration category. It's also one of many dreams in a burst that featured my first ever trip into Canada (on Jun 20, 2005).
5-32: This dream likely occurred due to watching too much of a particular TV show.
5-37: This dream features a software crash with a cell phone, something I've never heard of happening at the time the dream occurred.
5-38: The dream features some getting stuck in a blizzard. Just a few days later, a major blizzard struck my area causing one of my family members to not be able to return home for a day.
5-48: A rather unusual way of obtaining small cash quickly was mentioned here.
5-49: I wished that this dream would recur as I liked it a lot.
5-52: The dream is very well-recalled in terms of the scenery, but almost no story is recalled, a rare combination.
5-58: This dream still bothers me (as of Apr 10, 2007) whenever I go shopping.
5-61: This dream is liked a lot and I wished it would occur again.
5-71: This dream may belong in the "weird" category.
5-79: I found the last part of this dream quite bizarre and wished it would recur.
5-82: This strongly mimics something I do in my mind game a lot and wished more of such dreams would occur.
5-88: This dream features an inventor with a strange way of gaining lift.
5-93: I wished this dream would recur and be extended.
5-103: Despite being vaguely recalled, this dream is an oddball in that the feelings are well-recalled compared to anything else bumping the dream's in-tact rating above the scenery and story in-tact ratings, well above.
5-118: This dream has an unusually high nature rating compared to the rest - it stuck in my mind for a few days.
5-128: This dream has a great story and is probably the first that uses event undoing directly.
5-141: This dream is a high favorite with a compatibity of 200. It was stuck in my head for about a week afterwards.
5-144: This dream predicted numerous events fairly well (though indirectly as usual) in the Sep 13, 2008 vacation I had.
Dream 5-151: Family mansion visit, fan troubles, and an odd jump ramp
Occurred on Jan 15, 2009; general - 1.5??; nature - 1.8??; story - 1.5???; scenery - 3?; fun - 1.8???; scary - 2??; weird - 1.8??; scenery - 25% in tact; story - 10% in tact; dream - 18% in tact
I recall 3 parts. The first is vaguely recalled. I'm visiting family in a large house, almost mansion-sized. It has 15,000 square feet of floor space. It was summer and day. I recall being outside in the 5-acre lot.
Part 2 is where I'm inside. F fan hangs from the ceiling by a rope. I recall my parents asking me to increase the speed. Beforehand, they were worried about its design. I pushed the button and the fan sped up. After a few seconds, the rope began unwinding. The fan rotated and swung wildly, spinning faster. I ran and hid by a wall to protect myself. I watched as the fan went from rotating horizontally (on the pan axis) to vertically (the tilt axis - I was viewing it edge-on almost). When it hits the ground, it shattered and send wood chunks and chips flying. There was a dark green sofa on the left side of my recalled scene (where I'm by the wall), a love seat straight ahead in the center but distant, and another sofa, but smaller, on the right. The other two's color is unknown. In the center, forming a T-shape, is a small table 2 feet above the ground, sort of like a coffee table. It was brown in color. The fan broke apart just to the right of the coffee table and it didn't hit anyone that I'm aware of.
Part 3 is an outdoor scene. I was told a flood was coming. A ramp was visible that seemed like something a vehicle would use to jump over something. In this case, it's a large, deep valley about 4000 feet across and 800 feet deep. Trees line the top rim of the valley where the house is. The valley had yellowish-brown rocks and had a few trees, sort of like a desert area. I don't recall anything else.
Dream 5-152: Glider crashes in snow near school, and an old, new laptop with DOS
Occurred on Feb 27, 2009; general - 2?; nature - 3?; story - 5?; scenery - 2??; fun - 2??; scary - 1.5?; weird - 2?; scenery - 18% in tact; story - 30% in tact; dream - 25% in tact
This dream has 4 parts. The first is that I'm riding on a bus, supposedly to return home or something. It's more of a city bus, one with about 30 rows of seats for up to 120 passengers. I don't recall the first part very well but all I recall is this camera/phone-like device. It was day and the empty farm (maybe prairie, but uncertain) fields are covered with lots of snow.
Part 2 involves a defective seat belt. Someone was wondering why something wasn't right. I tried it and found the seat belt was defective. It was loose, having a weak latching mechanism (a little force could unhook it).
Part 3, the weirdest one, is where I'm watching around and 20 seconds later, I spot a wide glider in a slight spin that crashes 2 seconds later. I mention of calling 911 and that I would investigate. The area was all fenced but there was a small school I could check out to hopefully get there. I enter the rather small 80x50-foot school building and report the crash, mainly asking how I get over there. I get led into the cafeteria into an employees-only area (which bothered me). In the kitchen was a door to the area. They advised that the ND snow was rather deep. I went out anyway and found the pilot okay.
Part 4 is where I fiddle with an old-style, cheap new laptop. It had DOS and some version of Windows on it. I recall just having got it out of the box and I set it up. Someone watched. I recall going into some configuration menu to raise a number, but didn't know the limits. 10,000 was set but 700,000 was the maximum. Before that, I recall typing "CR" to validate my Windows license - it was valid. I don't recall anything else.
Dream 5-153: Easy coins in doctor's room, a gift for sister, an odd, cold shower, and an escape
Occurred on Mar 1, 2009; general - 2?; nature - 2; story - 3?; scenery - 1.8; fun - 2; scary - 1.2?; weird - 1.8?; scenery - 35% in tact; story - 25% in tact; dream - 30% in tact
This somewhat well-recalled dream has 6 known parts, 4 well-recalled. The first is that I was in a building with mom, for her doctor appointment. I found a few pennies on the rather old-looking, messy carpet. I looked around and found more and more coins, usually pennies, but occasionally dimes. I once, early on, find a coin resembling a penny, only as a regular dodecagon (12-sided). It had a "125" marked on it and it was from a foreign country. I saw the country but don't recall it, not even the continent it would be on. I soon had more than a dollar in coins as I went into an adjacent room. Someone didn't want me to take the coins. I continued for a bit more but that one got to the point where I cast stop on him, freezing him in time. I think I found dimes and nickles as well, probably a quarter or two.
Part 2 involves my sister leaving to go to a distance place in the US. All I recall is getting her something as she was gone.
Part 3 involves an odd shower. The usual cold water usage was present but another difference is that the tub is practically in the middle of a 16x16-foot room that seemed to be under construction (given the uncovered floor, and major lack of decorations and furniture - the tub and shower curtains were the only thing really present). I was also sleepy, very sleepy. I thought I'd turn on the cold water to wake up which helped.
Part 4 is where my sister came back. Though a bit sleepy, I gave her what I was after. It was a small, multi-colored poster (with about 12 random colors). I have no idea what was on it.
Part 5 is basically equal to part 1, only it's outside. Bullies or something were trying to catch me, but I was too slick. My gliding made them have a hard time catching me - I was too fast. They tried a truck but I caught up to it. There were 5 or 6 such events, most of which I don't recall. The last one was where I went into this bin of rather chilly (40°) water and stayed at the bottom. The bin was 12 feet high and 4 feet on an edge. The water was 8 feet deep. I was under the water but I could breathe. I remained here for a minute. This event occurred just 1/4 mile east of my house and the tub of water was actually being hauled in the back of a truck.
Part 6 is where it's night and I'm walking toward the highway with mom. I recall running across but the dream ended by then.
Dream 5-154: Wal-mart shopping - couldn't reenter with stuff already purchased
Occurred on Mar 5, 2009; general - -2.5???; nature - -3???; story - -4???; scenery - 1.5???; fun - -2.5???; scary - 1.2???; weird - 3.5???; scenery - 12% in tact; story - 8% in tact!; dream - 10% in tact
This is a strange, but disliked dream. I shop at Wal-mart at night, mostly for food. I was to also get stuff for the others. I got their stuff and went for the checkouts. I recall a scene where I'm looking at bread in a corner shelf. I have no scenes of the checkouts but I do recall being back outside waiting for the others to arrive.
It's then that I notice I forgot to get my stuff entirely. I had to get back in, but I couldn't bring the card and stuff in without paying for it again so I was in a bad situation. I saw a staff member and I repeatedly asked how I could get back in but got nowhere. I recall him stating that the staff can go anywhere in the building. Near the end, sister came and I told her of my problem. The dream ended 20 seconds later.
Dream 5-155: Mega speeding in Wisconsin and combo store troubles
Occurred on Mar 9, 2009; general - -1.2; nature - 1.5; story - -2?; scenery - 2.5; fun - 1.2; scary - 3; weird - 2.5; scenery - 45% in tact; story - 25% in tact; dream - 35% in tact
This dream is a bit weird. I'm in western Wisconsin with mom. I don't have my drinks or any snacks with me in the van. The highway's speed limit was 65 though mom often went 70. Strangely, the speed limit didn't change as we entered a town resembling my home town in looks and size. Even with traffic lights, 65 mph was the speed limit. Mom, here, went to 80 mph, truly speeding. I told her to slow down. Green lights on traffic lights were ahead. Mom continued to speed up, but slowly. I was hungry and thought of that as a way to slow her down. By then, she was going 95 mph and holding. I checked the speedometer to validate this. A curve was ahead and she began slowing down at last. She couldn't make the turn, but she entered the rather empty parking lot at 55 mph and stopped in front of the building, which I found amazing.
We parked and entered. Inside, there was a bakery, convenience store, and mall all in one. If the car was to the south, the entrance was to the south. A drink shop, with Icee, was north of me. Further north was the entrance to the mall area, which only had 6 to 8 shops. There were bins filled with somewhat random items in the 15-foot-wide hallway with white tiles. The mall ran west to east. The convenience store used stone tiles of a medium grayish-brown color. Before the entrance to the mall, a guard was to the east making me afraid to enter the mall.
West of the building entrance was the deli. There was a freezer about 6 feet wide and 7 feet tall that was 5 feet east of the deli counter that stored pizzas and a few other frozen things. East was the checkout area and was the convenience store aspect. These two areas aren't recalled as well. The building was well-lit (about 400 to 500 lux) as a whole is about 70 feet from west to east and about 50 feet from south to the furthest seen north.
When I entered, I asked the drink shop what they had that wasn't a soda. I found Icee the most attractive and got one, a 32-ounce size. I almost entered the mall, going 4 feet past the guard but abruptly stop and go back. I asked the guard if I could go in and was told I could. I went to one of the bins straight ahead, which had a bunch of activity books, but all kids stuff. I was a bit worried while doing so and this got to me too much that I just returned to the rest of the area without anything.
I went to the deli. The deli's freezer had premade pizzas on various types of bread: French bread, submarine buns (long, wide hot dog buns), donut and bagle halves each 8 inches in diameter, even the traditional flat circle. I looked but didn't find any of those of interest. I ordered one using a submarine bun with cheese and extra cheese as my toppings.
The next thing I recall is that I'm back in mom's van out of the city. I don't recall the city's name at all. But, as I'm about to get a drink or eat, I find that I don't have them. The dream ends 10 seconds later without the food and drink.
Dream 5-156: Surprise MN trip without my video games and a giant mosquito
Occurred on Mar 9, 2009; general - 2.5??; nature - 2.5??; story - 5?; scenery - 2???; fun - 4??; scary - 1.8??; weird - 2??; scenery - 10% in tact; story - 25% in tact; dream - 18% in tact
This dream has 3 parts. I first recall mom going somewhere taking me with. I don't recall where I went or what really happened.
Part 2 is where I begin recalling well. It's the end of part 1. Mom is done doing what she wanted but surprises me with going to see family in Minnesota. I asked if I could get my games but she rejected. I asked twice more but got nowhere. I even mentioned that I only wanted one instead of 2. It was still a n-go. I just followed her outside the van.
A mosquito-like insect was present and encountered. It was giant-sized and really wanted to get me. I used the float run to follow mom and occasionally stopped to play in small ponds on the side of the road. I recall almost getting ambushed by that giant mosquito and I cast ice on it which essentially froze it. I no longer had to worry about it. I then just followed the highway.
Part 3 is where it's dark and I'm still going, following mom. I don't recall anything else. When there, I bought an SNES and a few games for it.
Dream 5-157: Odd building repair work and the unsanitary doctor
Occurred on Mar 22, 2009; general - 1.8; nature - 2; story - 2; scenery - 1.8?; fun - 1.8; scary - 1.5; weird - 3; scenery - 30% in tact; story - 60% in tact; dream - 50% in tact
This dream has 6 parts. I recall mom stopping by a 60-something-story building in New York City. Mom had a doctor appointment for her pain. I was with mom. We went to floor 46 using a fast elevator - a floor every 1.1 seconds (roughly 17 mph). We had to wait. The light-gray-walled building was well-lit using only natural light - it was about 500 to 600 lux in brightness.
Some repair work was being done. I recall 2 workers having to change carpets or sheets. They had to tilt the building 35° to do this. I held onto a support beam. They took longer than expected so I tried to do it myself. I got a twin-sized sheet or carpet and tried installing it. That's when the workers returned. I had the wrong size. They soon fixed it and the building was back to normal.
Part 3 is the doctor visit itself. The doctor just examined mom and that's all I recall about the visit's main intent. After this, the doctor offered a drink but hwas unsanitary - the doctor was quite unclean.
Part 4 is the RPG version of this. I was working with the lowest 10 floors. The basement was filled with enemies but the upper floors had no enemies. They all had treasures. In the center was a hole - walk over the edge and you go down a floor. The game was 2D and closely resembles Final Fantasy Mystic Quest's ice pyramid for floor textures.
Part 5 is a repeat visit to the doctor, showing how unclean and unsanitary he is. He offers a half eaten sandwich or piece of cake, another drink using a straw he used a while ago, and a few others. We just left.
Part 6 is a class of some sort. We were given a newspaper and we were to write a report or something on it. For the last 5 minutes, lots of shouting for questions was done. One was done at a time instead of it being all together. I didn't take any part in it. We used tables in this dark (20 lux) room that were 4 feet wide by 12 feet long. They were connected with each other and the room had seating for 500, though 600 were here.
Dream 5-158: Huge cash from story shirt sales and being arrested at school
Occurred on Mar 29, 2009; general - -1.2??; nature - 1??; story - -2.5??; scenery - 1.5???; fun - 1.2??; scary - 1.8??; weird - 1.2??; scenery - 7% in tact!; story - 20% in tact; dream - 15% in tact
I mostly recall fragments of scenes in this dream. The first known event is where I find jumbo-sized, wide pushpins for me in the bathroom. I don't recall what they were for.
In another event, I recalling having earned $130,000 from selling T-shirts with my story's front cover on it. A $100 bonus was involved, but I have no idea what reason it was for.
In the best-recalled event, part 3, I recall that I had to go to school. I put these items (the pushpins and the money) in my right pocket. At school, I recall police going around. I recall one of them speaking to me. They were investigating a robbery in Alaska. They soon, after a minute, put me under arrest, handcuffing me. I recall stating that I've never been further north than the 50°N latitude line whereas Alaska is in the 60's. I didn't resist the arrest. This is as far as I recall.
Dream 5-159: Returning a combo system and limiting casino visit
Occurred on Apr 11, 2009; general - -1.2???; nature - -1.2???; story - 1???; scenery - 1.5???; fun - -1.2???; scary - 1.2???; weird - 1.5???; scenery - 10% in tact; story - 6% in tact!; dream - 7% in tact!
This dream has 2 parts. The first is that I'm at a store selling old video games and systems. I was returning the combo system - I brought Bubsy with and showed them, playing level 10. I don't recall anything else here.
Part 2 is where I go into a casino-like place. I saw a few games and thought I'd try them. I went to get chips, getting $20 in the smallest possible chips (chips with the lowest value). I got them then looked around. I saw a room that said "18+ only" which bothered me. I didn't enter. I didn't find much of interest though. There were 10 or so games - a brown carpet and medium-low lighting (100 lux).
At the time this dream occurred, I had this combo video game system (Yobo) that, for the Genesis had distorted colors and I was after returning it. That's probably where part 1 originated.
Dream 5-160: A friendly ghost, truck splashes in river twice, and figuring out house values
Occurred on May 4, 2009; general - 1.8?; nature - 3?; story - 2?; scenery - 3??; fun - 2.5?; scary - 2.5?; weird - 3.5??; scenery - 20% in tact; story - 30% in tact; dream - 25% in tact
There are 5 known parts to this dream. The first involves a small (one foot tall), friendly, cartoon-style, 1/4 opaque ghost. I don't know what happened other than having to protect it.
Part 2 is where I'm riding in dad's truck. At first, all is okay. Probably from loss of concentration, I recalling "watch out!". The brakes slammed but not soon enough. The truck goes over the 4-foot edge of a T-shape intersection and splashes into a small river. There were green plant-like things floating on the otherwise still water. Strangely, by quickly shifting into reverse and flooring it, the truck safely got out. I thought I was going to have to swim through that plant stuff. We continue on. I don't recall how it happed, but the truck, again, went into the river in a different spot. This time, we couldn't get out so we had to walk through the water, this time with only 2-foot-tall grass as the plants. The bottom was mud about 4 inches deep. I recall after walking a foot higher, taking my shoes off - this is how I felt the soft mud. I walked back through the initially 4-foot-deep-water.
Part 3 is of scenes I don't recall but I know it exists. Part 4 is where I return to the river site, only on foot. I recall going down a 3:1 hill and reaching 25 mph in small steps. I stopped and recall of an 8-year-old girl (by size) telling me of a world record for this kind of thing, only the record didn't exist.
Part 5 is where I met up with friends where house values were explained. I was to get the value of someone's house, but, short of the internet, I didn't have a way or knew how this is done. I recall speaking with an off-duty news cameraman - he stated of all his adventures. I also recall reading a sign for a beer place, from the back side where things are flipped (like looking at it in a mirror).
