So I stopped on the way to the Capricon meeting today and spent fifteen minutes or so running a simple Ingress mission in a nearby park. As it happened, when I finished, I discovered that I still had portal keys to the pool a couple of blocks away on the other side of the street from when I watched Katie and Julie at their swimming lessons there, so I tossed enough small fields to push myself over 800K, which puts me a third of the way to level 8, which is when you get the biggest and best toys to play with.
I called tollers on the way to the meeting to see if she had anything to report. (Answer: no. We're in the slow part of the filk cycle for Cap.) So we did a bit of Ingress chatting. And after the meeting, I got to talk to a couple more folks on the Cap committee who are playing Ingress and compare notes.
If the weather weren't so abominably hot, I'd take Katie out to do some hacking, but I think this will wait until it's at least a bit cooler.
