Lost cat in the Mission (SF) -- passing it on.

"Our cat Daisy has been missing since Tuesday 8/25/15. She is a very FRIENDLY 6 year old 10 lbs small-medium cat, black and white pattern. She has a quick release collar that is white with colored lines on it with a bell and a pawscout badge, however this may be lost as she loses her collar often. She is microchipped. We have already alerted the microchip company, SF ACC, and nearby neighbors.
She was last seen around Treat avenue between 24th/25th street in the Mission district SF on 8/25/15. If you live in this area, please check your garage and any enclosed compartments.
If you see her, please contact us. Will offer reward.

Can I transition Friction into Everybody Dance? Yeah, I think I can. Who's gonna stop me?

Highlighting the key quote from Max Gladstone's AMA:

"What else am I working on: a LOT!

2. The Highway Kind, a novel about road-tripping through alternate Americas for great justice. Take the Amber Chronicles and centrifuge with the Indigo Girls cover of Tangled Up in Blue"

Yeah! And if you haven't read Max's other books, they're superb.

Mission Series: Blue Montreal
Location: Montreal
Author: afaren
Time: 3 hours 
Start portal: https://www.ingress.com/intel?ll=45.524244,-73.581282&z=18&pll=45.524544,-73.58181

Montreal has a lot of great mission series. I only did two of them but next time I'm there I'm gonna get a pay as you go MiFi and dig into the other six ones. 

This mission series gives you a tour of the Plateau Mont-Royal. It was cool getting out of downtown and seeing more of the city.

Awesome mission series in San Francisco that takes you on a hike through the Presidio. Lots of gorgeous views, lots of history. Strongly recommended way to spend a day.

+Michael Nguyen I did this series a while back. No parking fee at Baker Beach where it starts. The one that looks like it's on water is on a public pier.

I spent a really pleasant day on the Presidio today hiking from Baker Beach up past the Golden Gate toll plaza, down Crissy Field, back to the Main Post, and finally to Lombard Gate.

I did complete it. 5 1/2 hours, around 9 miles. The only really strenuous bit is the Battery to Bluffs trail, since you have to go down the sand ladder to Baker Beach, then back up, then down to Marshall Beach. The views are worth it, though.

Have a real ghost ship!
It reads like something you might see in an episode of the Twilight Zone. In 2013, the Lyubov Orlova, a Russian Cruise ship weighing over 4,251 tons broke free from its towing line as it was being delivered from Canada to a scrapyard in the Dominican Republic. From there it drifted into international waters, where …

If you're into genre flicks (horror, SF, thrillers, crime, etc.), I'm microblogging reviews from Fantasia over on Letterboxd. Pretty good stuff so far with a couple of standouts and one dud.

Title: Explore DTLA
Location: Los Angeles
Author: CaptainFailboat
Length: 60 missions
Duration: 10-12 hours

The picture is rotated 90 degrees but it's pretty nice nonetheless. The mission covers all of downtown Los Angeles, including some sketchy sections. 

Credit for the map and the spreadsheet go to +Hazel Butler, who ran a really cool event this weekend for people who wanted to do the mission series.

Name: San Francisco's Pyramid
Location: San Francisco, CA

This is a 12 mission vertical mission art series; when completed, you get a black and white picture of the Transamerica Pyramid. There are four optional missions along the way, allowing you to display your faction symbol and/or a SF badge in the completed art. Since you need to do a number of filler missions along the way, this is likely to be a multi-day project.

There's a complete guide to the series here, including maps: https://docs.google.com/document/d/17Ao2eD0wM96eZVJkc9u3DTmaOkldcSI7fvPFN1tXTnY/pub

Thanks to +Brett Allen for providing the picture with the Enlightened badge for the sake of comparison and for being the best mission author in San Francisco.

+Katharine Magary: thank you! I'll take a look. I like the Wave Organ mission as filler; that's a nice bit of SF weirdness.
