20 miles of #Ingress missions in a day!!
 
Journey Again; Nourish Soul - 32 Missions the Brute way

At 9:00 am, on August 16th 2015, 10 brave resistance souls journeyed forth to attempt to complete a mosaic based around ENL Strandit’s Transamerica Pyramid Banner missions in a single day. What they accomplished was a feat that truly exemplifies the resistance spirit of relentless teamwork:
12+ hours of walking, 32 missions, 20+ miles, over 100k mAh used
      *San Francisco is only about 7 miles across
This grand adventure all started with the simple idea "Hey you guys want to do some missions?"
Volunteering for duty were agents:@velvetsiren @thecatspaws @thestudette @aNaggingDoubt @fionaghal @RainGoth @lightweaver @OninekoKin

Special thanks to:
@VelvetSiren for organizing and @strandt(enl) for the transamerica missions. 
Here is the list of missions we did:
https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1p4tuMitflrtUAOFO9eGYSIV6QNHcWf-FgDF9kGIXxwU/edit#gid=0
Points of interest along the way: 
Stunning views of San Francisco from upper terrace. 
Palace of fine arts with fountains
Yoda (statue)
Marvelous food smells and restaurants along Chestnut Street
Running into a craft beer expo
Wonderful sea food and drink on cannery row
Listening to the seals on the pier
Sunset from Coit Tower
Little Italy
Realizing "oh, I've been here for Ingress before a few years ago."
The rooftop gardens of Trans America building

My thanks to #Ingress for giving me the motivation to walk 20 miles in a day, and having crazy enough companions to do it with me for the fun of it. I couldn’t have done it without my teammates cheering me on.

Issues that were overcome:
my blisters have blisters, second hottest day of the year, phones overheating, running out of water, losing signal and having to piggy-back on teammates’ hotspots, the great 7 min. ingress outage, “What do you mean that gate is closed?!?”, suddenly finding that a mission could not be completed due to construction and substituting another mission on the fly, OMG the FIDI drift , OMG the FIDI drift (please, please, please just let me hack that portal)

Any #Ingress agents out there ever see or try one of these? Looked like something out of the future when this guy zipped up on one.

Beautiful #Ingress lens on reality.
 
Through the prism of ingress
Definition: Upon passage through the prism, the white light is separated into its component colors - red, orange, yellow, green, blue and violet. The separation of visible light into its different colors is known as dispersion.

We don't see the white light as anything special. The same as air, the white light is just everywhere around us. We don't notice it. We breath and we blink. But we are stunned by the rainbows after the rain once the white light is decomposed into its main components.

Ingress works as a prism too. It decomposes not the light but the cities and the people. It let you to see things around you you would have never seen without it. It gives you a chance to meet people you would never meet otherwise. The full spectrum.

May I introduce you my latest ingress experience - the gorgeous city of Valencia, Spain, the city of the stunning street art. Here it is, decomposed through my scanner.

Lots of good stuff!   #Ingress  
 
All of them. At a glance. #IngressWeekly Issue009  (09 Aug 2015)
TLDR;  Ingress is not only just a game. It already evolved into something bigger, something what brings people together and connects them. This is a unique language which all of us speak, regardless from which country we are. Planning huge OPs. Laughing at stupid gifs which go like a virus through all hangouts. Vouching for those crazy agents who were banned by a false positive result in the NIA bot detection algorithm. Spending nights on hangouts for ingress unrelated things. Making fields and fieldarts as a gesture of acknowledgement towards those whom we love or those whom we lost. Travelling across the countries and even continents and everywhere meeting new friends. 
Ingress is a lifestyle.

Keywords: NSFW gifs, travelling, capsules, softbans, glyphcookies,  stunning fields and field-arts and a moment of silence.

>>NSFW[18+]
Agents, did you notice when you start your scanner that California is very happy to see you? It is still not too late to open your scanner now and to have a look!

And there is that...
My humble contribution for the wonderful people playing Ingress in Romania, Enlightened Faction, especially those first time partners for whom I feel deeply connected.
On 2nd of August 2015, after a 5 hours continuous climbing from The 2 Towers Cabin (1520 m), I reached The Moldoveanu Peak (2544 m) în The Făgăraș Mountains and installed this plaque and so the names of some great players : +Ramona Ionescu​, +Alex Cruceru​, +Dan Boabes​ will always be remembered by all that reach the highest mountain in Romania.
Cheers to all!
PS : Happy Birthday, +Dan Boabes

Love this trip.   #Ingress  
 
100 agents from Beijing area, Guangzhou (South of China) and even the Netherlands met for a gargantuan crossfaction dinner buffet tonight in the Chinese Capital. The group picture below was taken at Beihang University, more photos coming soon (as soon as I will have caught up with the pics in Shanghai).
Until than, see you tomorrow for the #IngressFS at the Beijing International Sculpture Park!
