    Bored on a monday. My whole day time consisted of holding a
    flashlight. So when I got home you knew I wanted to go exploring. I
    tried to get a hold of Jason from Urban Sights, but he was not
    around. I tried to get the stoot to go, No dice. Tried to get the
    mystress and the infamous to go. Nopers. So I call up Syphon Filter
    cause I know he'll go anytime , and Tia from Viseral Axis was online
    so I threw the offer up to her and crew to go.From the moment go it
    was a nightmare. I forgot to phone filter before I left my house to get
    him, so I sat outside his house 20 minutes longer than I wanted.
    Finally with him in the truck we head back to headquarters
    and wait for the rest of our posse. Im so behind on gathering my gear
    that im setting things up as im running out the door. We drive to the
    location, and get out of the car. Im starting to notice something

    My crew apparently has become too comfotable with
    this location because they're talking at a somewhat
    loud level and using very little stealth. I turn a blind
    eye and keep walking. Things quiet down for the rest
    of the walk. We do our usual split and run routine. As
    the last one is crossing the road, I see them. Those
    damn headlights. Im sure there is no way security
    did'nt see filter crossing the road.  I herd everyone in
    and proceed to a better viewing spot.  After about 40
    minutes watching security im convinced were going to
    be ok. SO time to go exploring. I made it a point to
    walk somewhat slow, but I think with all the security
    adrenaline going my companions wer'nt ready to calm
    down yet. We roam the halls, quite noisily. Much to
    my dismay. THis is a high stakes location

    Ho w could people forget that and just walk and talk like they're in
    a mall or something. I try to take them all to locations that they
    had'nt been before. Till it happened. I think in the I ward basement.
    I lost it. They were being so god damned loud. I turned around, I
    could feel the fire in my belly burning. I called a group meeting. I
    told them, yes we're are here to have fun, but this isnt disney world.
     This is a high stake location and it need to be treated as such. I
    was as nice about it as I could muster. But common sense tells you
    to keep it down , watch were your going, and listen to your guide.

    From that point on the adventure went really well. They really are
    good explorers, just new explorers and they need a good mentor. I
    just dont have the patients in a location like the one we were at.
