Operation: Adventure Skytime (Unclassified SitRep for public distribution)

This is an unclassified SitRep on "Operation: Adventure Skytime"  to resolve any question as to the legitimacy of the strike on the snowed in Yosemite portals. A classified AAR will be released to the BAF communities, and a video SitRep should be released soon.

The targets were determined to be a potential threat because of their winter durability since the access roads had been closed during the previous storm. Because even the hiking trail to Glacier Pass had been closed off, the only solution was to strike them from the air. After contacting several charter companies, it was determined that SkyTime Helicopter Air Tours (www.skytime.com - (321) 247-8687) was the most capable, suitable, and accommodating for our special needs. The pilot, Ed, is a military veteran with 37 years of flight experience, and quickly understood the necessity of our mission. Because of his experience and special accommodations, we chose to make the longer drive to Mammoth Yosemite Airport (MMH).

Our departure from the rally point was later than initially planned due to one of the operation agents being needed in the field for shard defense. Upon arrival we had a quick equipment check and packed the transport vehicle to leave. The drive was relatively uneventful, and the operation agents were constantly kept updated about the ongoing shard situation. Initially we had planned to arrive and launch around 1030 but our arrival was behind schedule because of the late start and how slow we were required to drive up some of the windy mountain roads.

Upon arrival at Mammoth Yosemite Airport, we took "proof of location" photos (and relieved ourselves), then quickly made our way to the security gate where we finally met our pilot in person. He escorted us into the secure area to the hangar next to the helipad where we parked and prepped all of our gear. Once geared up, we went through the safety training and learned that it is actually possible to survive if the helicopter caught on fire at 12,000 feet, that the tail rotor is bad news, and many other things that you'd likely never need to know unless you were about to fly in a helicopter. Safety training out of the way, we climbed into the chopper and "Adventure Skytime" was underway.

(Operational Details Omitted) Once our targets had been captured, we toasted our completed mission with bacon at 12,800 feet before returning to the airport. "Adventure Skytime" had been a success. 

Since all agents involved in this were also involved in one manner or another with "Operation: Point Break" for the #13MAGNUS anomaly in San Francisco, we quickly stowed our gear and began the long drive back to headquarters.

TIMELINE:
0730 - Breaking of fast with Bacon (as all good Ops should begin with) 
0815 - Last team member arrives at "Operation: Adventure Skytime" headquarters 
0845 - Off like a herd of turtles 
1310 - Arrival at Mammoth Yosemite Airport (MMH)
1311 - Frantic rush to use MMH bathrooms 
1320 - Meet with pilot, go through safety training, and sign waivers 
1335 - Liftoff - "Operation: Adventure Skytime" underway
1434 - Target Captured (Tioga Pass Road)
1459 - Target Captured (Glacier Point)
1501 - Target Captured (Yosemite NP, Glacier Point 200)
1503 - Link Thrown (Yosemite NP, Glacier Point 200 to Eldorado National Forest Post Office)
1509 - Target Captured (Halfdome, Nevada and Vernal F)
1511 - Partaking of Bacon at 12,800 feet (except Mrowwy)
1538 - Land - "Operation: Adventure Skytime" successful

I just placed an order for some green glow sticks that were on lightning sale on Amazon this morning:

http://www.amazon.com/dp/B004NBZLJ2?smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER

In addition to the green sticks, I picked up a full set of by getting the blue and red versions also.  Thought it might be put to use in order to create long exposure light painting photos around some portals in the Livermore/Pleasanton/Dublin Tri-Valley area.  Let me know if there are any volunteers that would like to meet up to help me out on getting some photos on the next couple weekends.

I'm new to light painting photography, so there will be a fair amount of trial and error.  But I'm sure we'll find a way to come up with some pretty interesting Ingress inspired shots.

You can see my photography on Flicker here (I dabble in a lot of all types of photography):

They do make them in the blue color.  See above where indicated that I had ended up buying green, blue and red versions of the light sticks.

I also picked up some yellow sticks from the same vendor a couple weeks ago too, where I am going to try and see if I can get a good orange light by putting a red and yellow stick together.  I'll use that combo to see if I can replicate the look of firing an XMP burst from a agent and his scanner while standing near a portal.

There is a portal that seems to be a focal point for the enemy's field that's covering most of Oakland. If we were able to take out this one portal it will disrupt 10 of their fields. What do you think?
