Boss Man Hanks showed up in my forest (Rubi) just after I finished this post. No lie. He was riding a horse apparently, and is hidden in the photo by the interface. He’s very old! (2003)

I was there attempting to figure out if I wanted to sell a 4096 parcel next to the forest. An avatar offered me $5000 lindens for it today (*not* Boss Man Hanks). What does his appearance mean — one way or the other? He decided not to enter my land (green) and rode north instead, following the east border of the forest. He stayed in the woods.
