Badges! Gives me the BADGES! :: shakes, tremors ::
Okay, so I’m not really a Foursquare addict…well maybe a little. I’ll blame the shakes on the coffee.
This weekend me and @McGeffers are planning a one-day trip through Chicago to obtain all THREE Chicago Foursquare badges. For a rundown of the three badges and what they all entail, visit Explore Chicago.
I’ve only been on Foursquare for about a month now, but I’m completely fascinated with the concept, per my previous post. My friend @McGeffers gave me a call and said, “Hey, I have an idea…do you want to take a day to get all three Chicago Foursquare badges?” I was ecstatic, yelling YES!!! We both agreed it would be indefensible and a completely new level of nerd if we went on this adventure solo. Isn’t that obvious?
So we’re plotting out a map, prepping our muscles by doing stretches and conditioning workouts, and packing a hearty lunch (j/k on that one…we have to eat a Chicago hot dog to earn the Celery Salt badge!). This Saturday, rain or shine, we’ll be tweeting our adventure, bringing along a FlipCam, and welcoming anyone who wants to join us on our journey to Mordor, er, the John Hancock!
While it may sound easy to simply bounce from location to location, checking-in, and earning the badges, it’s much more than that. We don’t take this journey lightly. There are many who have come before us, blazed the trail, and probably several who stubbed a toe or shattered their iPhone. Mental and physical preparation is a must.
If you can’t join us, feel free to suggest a theme song we should use for our journey or simply follow us on Twitter on Saturday!
– God’s speed
