Tasks / Journey To The End Of The Night: Glasnost

This task is retired.

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.

That's pretty unoriginal LOL, but I had never walked up the east face of Telegraph Hill, and 36 years after arriving in SF, I found myself falling in love with her yet again. She ages well.

On the way through Chinatown, the orange bird gave me a pass, which I surrendered to Maggie after walking stupidly down Buchanan instead of cutting around by Webster. She was very cool. Asked me if she could read my map. I almost regretted handing her the Get Out Of Jail Free card.

The Morton Salt Girl was so well in character she looked entirely natural standing there in the shopping aisle with an open umbrella. The store was fun. I had forgotten how good the cruising is at that CALA.

The person on Parker had some likable Buddhist art, and I longed to play her old upright piano, but it was obviously not the right time. She gave me a huge glass of water that tasted wonderful.

Halfway through the Presidio, my mental alarm went off, saying the municipal towing pirates were eyeing my car greedily, so I dropped out of the game and took the 1 California back to the Embarcadero, where the car was waiting like a waif, fragile in an emptiness of vacated parking spaces. It was a relief to find her before the City pounced.

Then I drove out to the Wave Organ and dropped into a couple of good conversations.

Thank you for a terrific evening!

To the people who created and advertised this event, thanks!

I wasn't able to participate, but the ad for this - in the Squid list, I think - was my first hint that SF0 existed.

These things are a great way to bring in new people.

Who the fuck is this guy? -1

he's the legendary old man of the event, and he's had an sf0 profile for years, though he's never done much:

he also posted the first comment on this page, "Love SF," but it's hard to see him because the player photos are just teensy icons now.

Small icons? -1

What the fuck is up with that? It's like the three on Oak Street are trying to make up for something else.

Hey! that guy gave me a ride home!

He was awesome.

I’m going to start this one off with how much I had been looking forward to this event. S/I/S had told me about it back at Seeing Beyond Sight. Well, things don’t always work out as you expect them. So it happens that LeEvil had her first runway ...

Checkpoint 2 The Couple There was time when I thought we wouldn't be participating... My lady friend was not keen on the idea of chasing or being chased by strangers through the city (she's a level headed, reasonable type). It was a perfect compromi...

Matre K and I (Mr. and Mrs. Smith) were volunteers at the first checkpoint, at Coit Tower. Not surprisingly, it was windy and chilly and there was no parking in the lot, but we managed to offload our important site equipment specifically designed for...

Mood: Paranoid, I'll be happy if we make it to the first checkpoint without getting caught! After we were released at the ferry building, Meredith and I ran down into a BART station to look at the bus maps, because we are silly and clueless like tha...

An interpretation of the journey to the end of the night: The sun was setting on the Embarcadero as we embarked. A crew of four, initially at least, we boarded the trains to our first destination. The cars filled quickly. Shoulder to shoulder we st...

The dash when the whistle went off proved to be the first challenge: after three blocks, I realized I had dropped my cell phone and we retraced our steps to (thankfully) find it lying on the ground, unstolen. After that we began to walk toward Sanso...

Dax, Qarly and I teamed up for team Don't Lose. Qarly quickly got separated on our way to Coit Tower and unfortunately due to misunderstanding (I thought she had been tagged!) Dax and I were on our own for awhile. After quite a bit of chasing, he f...
