So... Mission Day number 20.. Initially Barcelona was announced. Fuck yes, Barcelona sounds awesome, need to go there. Not much later Mission Day Deventer is announced, 1 day after Barcelona. Fuck that, too easy. How about I do both? Not much later I booked the flights needed, around 1pm on Sunday I would land in Amsterdam, Deventer is 'only' 1:30 hours away from Schiphol so that would land me in Deventer around 3pm, after quickly talking with Deventer orga I knew this would be enough time to do the missions before 5pm at least.
Friday morning, off to Barcelona. From there on it was, banners, banners, banners.. In between the mission day missions were live, which was a complete joke.. Minimum of 6 while there were 8 almost on top of each other at one location. At Saturday evening we quickly did the 3 missions of the special Barcaventer banner (3 missions in Barcelona, 3 in Deventer) and I met up with the others who had the same 'stupid' idea to do both. Then Sunday arrived aka Deventer day. First a 2:30 flight back to the Netherlands, then some trains. Due to a 30 minute delay in my flight I ended up in Deventer around 15:30, later than planned. Therefore I decided to go into full asshole mode, I knew I would run into wayyyy too many people I knew.. So music on, and just essentially run for it, ignoring virtually everybody (so please don't be offended if I didn't say hi). After a little over 1 hour I was done, off to the registration.. Where some of the orga were like "Oh damn you made it, did you do the missions?".. Quickly registered for MD 21 and went for beers and finally saying hi to people.
This surely was an exhausting weekend, but plenty of uniques. With both cities being unique for me I ended up getting 933 upv and 549 upc.

Release The Beast
Not too long ago after resisting for a very long time our all time favorite froggie decided to change to resistance after all. Her being one of the most experience enl players of our city essentially meant one thing to us, we didn't have to explain the game to her. Within seconds we were clear about one thing, power leveling is going to happen no matter what. Within no time we got an awesome team ready to help. Then when the change got through we had to decide for a date. Just a few dates where the now ex-froggie was available, first one was too last minute. The other one was in fact on her birthday, meaning she wouldn't be able to drink any alcohol on her birthday, as speed leveling while somewhat drunk didn't seem like the best idea. After some complaints we decided to go for this date anyway (personally actually proud she kept her promise of not drinking during the day).
7pm, I start flipping some things to prepare. Not much later I got a message "Are you going to level staverbeest tonight?". Oh great, am I already spotted? Nope, turns out she was added to the ladies chat already, where she said she was going to be leveled that evening, pfew.
8:30pm, we started gathering at our main anchor.. To which I had to great excuse that it was at McDonald's and I didn't have dinner yet. After some exchanging keys and explaining some more details we finally could start our plan.
In the next 1 hour, 14 minutes and 49 seconds nearly 900 fields were created with about 450 links. Resulting in a level 8, after which many beers were had. After this there was the question, shall we quickly P8 roll something (it was 11pm by then)? Nah.. Beer time! Around this time some others had arrived just to have beers, so off to the pub to have some more fun there!

This was all made possible by +Jip Leijdekkers +Shadowdancer Wereldvreemd +Stephan Welles +Eunice Valdez +Merijn 88CCFF +Adriaan Koster +mark gibson +Toon Schoenmakers +Kira Kage and of course +Maria Mezereum.

tl;dr, no record but who cares we have fun and we got another L8 agent!
tl;dr, staverbeest no longer exists, it's now MMezereum. But feel free to refer to her as "Lekker ding".

Let's do that one last banner within cycling range of my home I thought... (https://ingressmosaik.com/mosaic/18633) I knew it wasn't 24/7, even though I love doing missions in the middle of the night.. After a quick glance at the route I knew the big issues with that would only start at like mission 7 or so... Nope, last portal of mission 1 pitch black forest at 3am... Nope, back home. To come back at 5am (dear sun, you're not supposed to be up at 5am). Only to be stuck at a small children farm that only opens at 10am at mission 4... Well fine, going home again to continue sometime later during the day.. At this point people started to wake up and I strongly discouraged our xfaction missions chat to do this one, to which most people replied "Well it was made by +Guido Klaaysen, what did you expect."... Right fuck, great point.. Oh well, I continued.. A lot of U-turns, parks that I could only walk in that I had to go back to twice.. Waypoints at 1km distance.. And then, oh the joy.. 3 portals behind a fence, of which I need to hack one... Missing 20 meter when next to the fence.. Fuck...

Really +Guido Klaaysen, if you're going to make banners in areas you know NOTHING about. Can you at least do the effort to test it yourself and work out these kinds of things. Yes the idea of this banner is wonderful, the execution however is terrible. For all future agents, here's a list of all banners in Netherlands you should avoid doing https://ingressmosaik.com/profil/Guype007

Very funny +Android Police.. Too bad this apparently common issue did actually happend to my Nexus 5X yesterday...

Back to Nexus 5 for a few days just to do sojourner and be reachable I guess... OnePlus 3T should arrive on Wednesday (a phone I don't even really want, but it's probably the thing I'll hate the least)
