I can't begin to imagine how bad Sunday is going to be at the park. Plus the temperature is supposed to be 100. A good day to be somewhere else. I sound really grumpy. Sorry!

I have been playing Ingress at BGW for 2-3 years now. Ran into other players there, too. It's kind of a shame that (1) it's impossible to play Ingress on the down-low anymore due to the volume of people wandering around staring at their phones, and (2) everyone now assumes I'm playing Pokemon, which I most certainly am not.

Just googled what Ingress is and it looks much cooler than Pokémon. Granted, not as adorable, but then there you are.

Someone at BGT saw me taking a photo of a water fountain and asked "Are you playing Pokémon Go?". I felt like I was caught using a selfie stick.

I have played it twice so far; for about five minutes outside my house and five minutes at BGW. I always stop for some reason. Maybe I just feel like "What am I doing?". I still have a strange feeling that I might need to "chaperon" any of my friends in the near future while at BGW. It's what friends are for?

This is just a new reason for people to run into people while looking at their phones. I don't play (because I'm an old fart) and never got into Pokemon as it was after my time. I never really got it personally. But having to watch restricted areas more closely is beyond crazy. People are really just stupid anymore it seems and have no common sense and aren't taught right from wrong it seems. Maybe I'm just getting old..

And turn that music down! (lol)

One of the characters, or whatever you search for, are in the Dinosaur section at Carowinds. So, you have to pay up (for non-pass holders) if you want to get to it.

KD has one of the gyms where you meet and battle in Dinosaurs Alive but the actual Pokemon appear more or less at random based on the amount of cell phone usage in an area.

So... Anyone still playing? (I know at least a handful of you are.)

Now that the game is becoming a lot more social, I figured I should revive this thread so people who frequent BGW can friend one another for trading, PvP, etc.

Also, people (read: me) need friends for their Celebi Field Research so... Share your friend codes. Mine: 2057 - 9787 - 8571

I'm still playing Ingress, despite Niantic's ongoing efforts to drive everyone away through bad decision making.

The new Ingress app is a slipshod mess.

I am still playing. As a side note there is a decent sized and fairly organized Williamsburg Pokemon Go Group on FB. We even have a BG sub forum on our chat app.

Also remember that the coaster tree gym is x pass elligiable. If you want to add my code is 5257-5352-8761
