Pokemon Go: "Outside"
Posted: Sunday July 10th, 2016 by

I'm sure you're all fully aware of Pokemon Go by now. It's been everywhere. I've never been that into Pokemon. So, I wasn't overly interested in it myself. But, seeing the trend, I wanted to read up on it, know what it is, how it is played. Even with the amusing screencaps, articles, and personal stories, I waved it off. Just before leaving for the Renaissance Festival Saturday, knowing it was going to be a hotspot of Pokemon Go activity (the Faire even acknowledged it on their Facebook page), I decided to install it.

Taks was driving, so I was able to capture a few Pokemon on the highway. We joked that each car Waze reported along the side of the road, had pulled over to capture a Pokemon. I caught another couple after we turned into the Faire parking area itself. At the gates I was pleased to hear that my pal Chauncey had also installed the game. It would be an amusing distraction from the heat. The family walked around enjoying the park, overspending on food, drink, wooden swords, capturing Pokemon, and hitting up Pokestops.

It was way more enjoyable than I thought it would be. But what really intrigues me is the idea that people are getting out, walking, and meeting new people all because of a little game. I hope you guys are enjoying it... SAFELY! I would absolutely love to hear about where you caught your highest CP Pokemon. So, please feel free to share.

Happy 16th Anniversary GU!
