Planetside 2 Playstation 4 flying night mooon
Fi

The Galaxy S3 finally died after it took a tumble off of my soccer bag not long ago. I was way out of contract so it was a good time to evaluate the options:

Yup. Went with Fi, been decent so far. The only notable exception was having H(SPA?) in rural Maine but no packet service.
Maine

Bar Harbor Maine cottage travel

A week after a lovely Encinitas beachside wedding, I hopped a flight up to Bar Harbor, Maine for more nuptials. Portland (ME) was great and the beach towns are pleasant, cottage-filled affairs. Acadia was lovely for jogging and the island has two breweries. I wouldn't say it's too much different from other parts of New England, other than being more remote.

DC

Dog couch pillow

It'd be a shame to go all the way out to the east coast and not stop into DC for a sweet gaming session. Planetside was the game of the day, as you might guess from recent posting.

I also took J's college-era surfboard out there for Lil'J's big boy room. Flying to Maine and then Baltimore with a surfboard prompts all manner of random commentation.

Bullet Proof surf fins carbon fiber quad

The board transfer meant I had to procure new fins, since my only other FCS set were for a thruster. But it's all good, having a carbon board with plastic fins is tragic.
Frolf

Sunday started with the Merseyside Derby at 05:30, then the League of Sport Frolf event at Morley Field. Early morning drizzle kept the crowds away, but it stayed dry the entire time we were out. 19 holes later Cooley and Chelsea tied Courtney and myself at 75, but they won on the tiebreak hole. Not sure about the Jamie/Brian v. Heather/Erik matchup. Afterwards we headed over to South Park Abbey for wings and football and crowds.

My instructional video on how to fly in PS2.



A rather unlikely thing happened when I bailed out of a doomed Liberator. Spoiler: those little glowing pads are elevators that turn fall damage off momentarily.



A couple more vids that just show pretty sights and a little bit of action.


Flying around at night.



Some turret action at Eisa Tech Plant.



A rather inelegant linear battle.
