Ingressing

Yesterday, I picked up my Onyx Sojourner badge, having hacked a portal daily for 360 consecutive days. The biggest challenge there was at FilkONtario when I was at a hotel with no portal and had a phone with no data access. Fortunately, the Montana restaurant across the parking lot had both free Wi-fi and a portal, which meant they got a lot of my business. :)

Today, I added a Silver Explorer badge, which is not nearly so impressive, but which indicates that I've hacked 1000 different portals. This was most recently on the back of our trip to Balticon, which managed to add about 70 or 80 portals to my previous total and put me close enough that I was able to make it with the three new portals I hacked tonight while Gretchen drove us to dinner after Katie's softball game.

Which Katie's team won, 3-0, with Katie scoring two out of the three runs. Run, Katie, run!
