The city spreads out before you. Rushing from point to point, lit by the slow strobe of fluorescent buses and dark streets. Stumbling into situations for a stranger's signature. Fleeing unknown pursuers, breathing hard, admiring the landscape and the multitude of worlds hidden in it.
For one night, drop your relations, your work and leisure activities, and all your usual motives for movement and action, and let yourself be drawn by the attractions of the chase and the encounters you find there.
If you participated in Journey in any way (as a player, chaser, or volunteer), please post your proof here. The more detail you get into, the more thorough you are, the better. If you have photographs, please post them! If you don't, make a comic like Rob (our winner this year and third place last year) did. Describe your chases, the people you met, what you thought of the checkpoints, etc.
We will be posting the results later this week, once there are some completions up.
We setup not too long before dusk. We had the classic spraypaint SF0 sign front-lit by a flashlight and supported by a stick with a banana peel. We also had a boombox and an owl on a post (from an old task that will never see the praxis... sigh).
We had treats for those who came by our checkpoint: whiskey, Fernet Branca (some wierd liqueur), bananas, apple slices, bread and water. We ran out of everything by about midnight.
The first people to arrive were Robert and Edward
We were a couple hundred feet from what was apparently officer housing (Presidio used to be a military base) and we invited the locals who passed by to drink with us.
Many players and chasers came by throughout the night. I always like to meet fellow players. That was nice. Unfortunately i had some of the whiskey with many of them and I'm sure I made an ass out of myself. I know I introduced myself twice to Ariock, kight of chaos. I'm sure I got on Aaron's nerves more than once with my awful piano skills.
I got the majority of the people who came by take a picture with the owl. For what its worth, the picture collection (except the first) is in order from last to first.
