Agreed Randompkguy. That would make more sense... (sticking closer to the city)

And Leon- No worries. I look forward to hearing of YOUR adventure.

So I woke up at 8:55 to a txt from happydud "Where are you?"

'WHAT JAM STARTED AT 9 NOT 10? AND I SAID 9?!' I felt so stupid. Anyways, I got up, got dressed quickly and went out to my ca....wait, dude, wheres my car?

Apparently my dad took my car so I was left without a ride to the metro. Bummer. I waited about an hour for him to get back and he didn't and I Was getting impatient so I decided to walk. The nearest metro is about 30-45 min walk from my house so I figured no big deal, it was worth it, and it was only around 11am.

Walk and walk and walk, I finally get near the metro and decide to call happy to check where I was headed. I reach for my phone in my bag and WHOOPS - flashback to me cradling my new phone at home to charge - damnit. I felt sooooooo f#cking retarded that I almost decided to lay on the ground right there and die. So I walked all the way back to my house to get my phone and saw lots of missed calls and txts. By then I was too demoralized to go anywhere.

To add insult to injury, my dad took my car to the shop for the crappy brakes and left a note for me to pick it up since its within 5 min walking distance, a note I missed on the fridge.


sooooo... I did find some PK spots on my small expedition. I also had bonding time with my inner crazy self. (Think Jack Sparrow on speed x3)


Did you guys get any photos of sweet amazing DC spots?

Adventure Jam: Official Report

It was:

happydud
m1xor
our friend JM
randompkguy
randompkguy's brother
a guy named Nick and I can't remember his handle

We started at Chinatown, and headed towards Glenmont/Silver Spring.

The first stop (Justice something) was kind of cool. There were some neat spots for some interesting cats, and good progression for precisions. Also a cool horizontal wallrun where you're running ON THE NAMES OF THE DEAD.

Then there was pretty much nothing else of note. We stopped at Silver Spring to hit up the spot behind the metro station and Zen park, and then we got lunch at Noodles Co. (omg so good)

Then we were hitting up the stations closer to Glenmont, and we were analyzing them for possible zombie infestation points, because some of those trains take RIDICULOUSLY long to arrive.

And that was pretty much that. Randompkguy suggested next time hit up a line that stays in the city more, and I agree. Redline wasn't the greatest idea.

But that was that.

Nick is ruskiman.

And I haven't eaten at Noodle Co. yet.  It didn't exist here when I left for Canada the last time.  I'm told the Asian noodles aren't up to par with... real Asian noodles.
