I was super disappointed. Especially upon having received this encouraging text prior to going:
So today we tried again. And I certainly learned a LOT! Primarily about what not to do😳
So here it goes:- do wear appropriate foot wear. Especially when the ground looks like this
- don’t wear brightly colored clothes as you will feel super stupid and like a way-too-easy target should you go wearing bright pink or red. Ahem
- do make sure to look at the ground in front of your next hiding spot. If it’s ankle deep mud maybe you should find another spot....😬
- do not get intimidated the slightest by the local Pennsylvanian Rambo-snipers pulling up in their pick up trucks wearing full camouflage outfits with GoPro cameras and hand held nasty paintball guns that can shoot WAY better then the worn-out crap they rent out at the field😖. They are super nice and will of course refrain from shooting at women in brightly colored coats.....
- do show off your paintball bruises to each-other once you make it home. Especially if they sit in places where you have to pull your pants down to show off the really nasty ones. You don’t want to do that in public!
Needless to say - Luca and Teresa would both love to go again.
