I am not sure what piqued my curiosity first the name HugaBug or the beautiful ads of her awesome grid Barefoot Dreamers, I love this name! Surfer at heart that I am, I immediately felt at home at Huga’s grid. I wanted to learn more about what it took to create her grid and what all it has to offer.
Huga, please tell us about your grid. “Where do I begin, Some friends had an idea of starting a grid, along with a name they had chosen, and approached me to be part of it ,..... Though they are no longer with us for varying reasons... I just couldn't see letting an opportunity pass. I tossed the thought of owning a grid around for days, talking with my partner in both RL & virtual Gabe Collingwood ( whom I met in Virtual Highway 8 yrs. ago & are a RL Couple for 6 yrs.)
Through lots of encouragement and support , from Gabe and Luna Rayn (who is part owner also)...I took the ball & ran with an idea , (totally redesigning the whole thing,) talking and working closely with my close friend Joe Builder the grid became a reality. Making it a beach themed welcome area to reflect on the name Barefoot Dreamers.
Barefoot Dreamers Welcome Area is a Unique fun exciting region to begin your visit on the grid. Where you can grab a jet ski race along the coast, swim with the dolphins, dance to the tunes, shop in the mini mall to entice you to explore the big mall, ride a roller coaster or just kick back and relax to work on that tan or socialize in a game of Greedy.
My inspiration for the grid comes from the name it came with, along with growing up on the coast. I wanted to give others the opportunity to experience the coastal side of life for those who are unable to experience it in RL .

Our first region that came together was the mall area......A full array of Avatar accessories from bodies, heads , skins, hair shoes and clothing etc., a variety of other items such as houses, furniture & games definitely a must visit.
2nd) The Public Beach I created with an outdoor theater, stage, along with games to play or just soak up the sun.
Next we added the Deep Forest I thought some exploring and adventure was a good add for us. A very picturesque region that is also calming with areas to relax in.
I had always had this dream of an amusement park from my childhood which is no longer but I loved as a child and wanted to somehow bring it to life inworld. I had the vision but no idea how to pull it together until....Joe Builder heard me speak of it many times in conversations then, Paragon Park became a reality, lots of hours were put into Paragon and is quite the vision I had dreamed.
Hugabug, Gabe Collingwood & Luna Rayn pulled together and made Barefoot what it is today. You can usually find the 3 of them enjoying a game of greedy or dancing at the welcome area you may even see DJ Flash doing his sets there so stop on by say hello !
Barefoot-Dreamers wouldn't be possible without the guidance & support from Fred Beckhusen & Joe Builder We cannot thank them enough for all they do!
