      If my method of travel doesn't matter (I drove there) then I completed the Angel Falls task. This will be my first TOTY ever. I'm pretty happy.

      Also, if you're looking for ideas for the next task of the month or year (I know its a long time away), I was browsing reddit and found this: http://imgur.com/LYAokfg
      Could do some pretty cool things with this

      I had a failure for South America, but at least I caught sight of the mesa where Angel Falls is located. At least this is proof that I am in there trying like crazy, in spite of my embarrassing lack of success.

      As I shoot past the roof of the building, I see a broad bay dotted with distant boats. And looking out further over the bay, I see a mesa covered with greenery... one that looks just like the mesa that Angel Falls originates from! (I looked it up and this mesa is called Auyan-tepui.)

      I decide to sing to keep myself focused on the task, and I come up with the following: "I'm going to Aaaaaaangel Falls!! Hell yeah Aaaaangel Falls!" I'm oblivious to how horrible my lyrics are (and my voice sounds totally rockstar) so this all seems awesome to me. After a while I think about the "Halls" brand cough drops I'd had during WBTB and come up with some second "verse" that rhymes "Falls" with "Halls". I'm sure it sucked as bad as the others but I wish I could remember it.

      I'm making good progress in my flight over the bay, and I cut past a boat that looks like it's loaded with tourists (most of whom are in bucket hats for some reason.) I'm excited, happy, and confident, but for some reason
      I lose the dream and wake up.

      I tried and failed at Europe (the Colosseum fight), but I did manage to make it to an awesome version of the Colosseum! This was a huge boost to my teleportation confidence, which I hope will help me with all of these. Considering that it's almost April and I have yet to complete one, I need all the confidence-boosting I can get.

      I crouch down in the dark and move my right hand in a rubbing motion, imagining that I'm moving my palm over sand. Soon I feel something like a thin layer of sand. As I keep rubbing, the layer seems to grow thicker and thicker. Now I can actually see the motion of my hand and I can vaguely make out sand shifting around. I think specifically of the sand in the Colosseum, then dig my fingers deep into the sand. I feel them scrape what feels like a wooden board.

      The sand comes fully into view, sharp and detailed. I keep staring at it, imagining that I'm surrounded on all sides by the Colosseum. I hear the crowd now, and after a few more seconds, I have imagined right where I'm standing in the Coloseum (close to one wall), what kind of day it is (sunny), and what I'll be trying to do (kill orcs.)

      I stand up, raise my eyes, and I am there in the great arena. Every detail looks perfect. I sweep my gaze from side to side, grinning at the thought that I'm actually here. I think that it looks just like stepping into a scene from "Gladiator".

      I failed Australia and China tasks in one dream this morning. It was actually kind of funny.

      ...I open the back door and see its raining so hard the back yard is flooded. I can play in the rain! Suddenly, the thought of playing in the rain became the best idea ever. I excitedly step outside but as soon as I do the rain stops. I thought, Ah you've go to be freaking kidding me! I see the huge puddle that is my yard and get an idea. I think that if I dive into head first it will become deep enough to transition into an ocean and I'll be able to do the Australia TOTY.

      I jump off the back deck and dive head first only to get my head stuck in mud and darkness. Stubbornly, I make swimming motions and try to picture the coral life. Nothing happens and I am forced to give up. I pull my head back and find myself still in the same dream. I see some movement on the other side of the privacy fence and vault over to see who's there...
      ...I make a hand motion to create a wormhole. Nothing. I try again. This time I see a white ball of energy suspended in front me but it refuses to form. I let it dissolve and reach behind me to summon the "timer". I point and shoot, see the beam, but nothing happens. I give up and decide to try flying there.

      I look around and see the terrain has become slightly mountainous and some very modern Chinese buildings are on the hills to the North East. I begin to fly in that direction. I jump and land hard. hmmmm. I decide to "focus fly" by picking a spot on a building and focus on going there. I feel myself levitate but I never move. Damn, why is my dream control failing now? I run to one of the buildings and begin to manually climb up it. The effort is labored and I feel tired when I reach the top. I look down the other side and notice its a REALLY long way down. I see something down there. It looks like the Great Wall! The shadow of the building covers part of it and the darkness worries some but I try not to let it manifest. This is it. I just need to jump down there. For some reason the height make me a little apprehensive and I hesitate. After a moment, I get over it and jump. The dream time lerches and there is no falling. I simply find myself on the ground next to the thing I saw. I stand up and look it over. It's just some stupid fence made of sticks and river rocks! I feel horribly cheated as I wake up.
      Full dream here

      Hey DV! I haven't been around in a while but yesterday I had a surgery to extract my wisdom teeth. It was the first surgery I was to experience and I was incredibly curious as to what would happen to my mind under anesthesia. I thought it was be incredible to have a lucid dream during this time and made it my goal! I came onto DV to see if anybody else had a lucid dream while on anesthesia and eventually got side tracked into finding my favorite topics: task of the month and task of the year. I clicked the task of the year and read through them. I decided to pick the Angel Falls dream. Here is my experience.

      As I was lying in the surgical chair, I told my nurses that I was going to try to have a lucid dream. I asked them if it was possible, and they said most people forget their dreams while on anesthesia. They gave me some N20 (laughing gas) and I was feeling pretty ridiculous. I tried to focus my mind on a picture of Angel Falls I looked up before my surgery. My mind started to escape me when they injected the anesthesia, but I was able to hold the picture in my mind. When I fell asleep, I was flying towards Angel Falls. I was well below the clouds and decided that it was time for me to raise my altitude. As I flew through the clouds, I could see and hear the rushing water falling what looked like 1,000 meters down. As I flew closer to the falls, I could see nothing but clouds below me. When I reached the tip, I stood on top of a rock that looked like a book and decided to rest my legs before jumping off this magical spot. When I felt ready, I took a deep breath, and with a flying start, jumped off of the waterfall. The rush was ridiculous. I could feel the mist of water brushing against my face, I could see the waterfall almost perfectly still as we fell the same speed down this enormous cliff. The fall lasted for about 10 seconds in my perspective, but I could feel my brain slowing down certain parts of it so I could enjoy the full experience. When I slammed into the water below, I awoke gently in a recovery room, with my mouth numbed and my wisdom teeth gone. It was truly an incredible dream. Although it was short, it was probably my favorite task that I've ever completed.

      Awesome dream Ollie. Nice to see someone come back even if I don't know them.

      You have quite a few LDs. Did you start in June of last year or just find DV at that point?

      What a great post, Ollie! I thoroughly enjoyed reading about your trip over Angel Falls! Sounds like an amazing dream. Makes me want to get my own dive over Angel Falls accomplished!

      You know, the question of whether it was possible to lucid dream while under anesthesia has been a question that comes up periodically on the forums and there's never been any settled answer. Very cool to hear a personal account, especially such a striking one.

      Nice job. Hopefully you'll get to do the rest of these without anesthesia!

      Dream under anesthesia, time dilation...quite an experience Ollie! You're the first person going through a LD under surgery that I've read about, quite impressive
