Living Legends 7 photos, by DAB Photo

May is always a great month to experience every year here in the Midwest. The sun decides to come out and play after the harsh winters and the weather for the most part is very tolerable as we reach temperatures in the 70s (farenheit for my non-American readers). May also brings one of the finest scenario paintball games in existence, Living Legends which is held annually at CPX Sports in Joliet, IL. For three days people from all across the nation flock to Illinois to play paintball, win prizes, make friends and create memories that will last a lifetime. This particular weekend in May brought a beautiful mixture of paint and mud as it had rained relentlessly in the area before the sun broke free.

Living Legends was always an event I had heard about and one I’ve wanted to attend, I just didn’t have the ability to as far as cost goes. Since I’m living in Minnesota now, the trek to Sweet Home Chicago was a little more manageable for me so after some coercing from my friend Calvin, I was on my way Friday morning. For the most part, the drive was uneventful. Wisconsin doesn’t really offer much for scenery, just a lot of woods. When I arrived to CPX, it was dark, chilly and muddy which ended up being a ton of fun! I had such a good time this weekend I'm already looking forward to LL8 for next year, so I hope to see you all out there again!

All of my photos can be found on flickr. If you'd like, I also wrote a blog post about the weekend on my website.

This was honestly one of the best weekends I've had in paintball. LL is definitely something I'm going to try to make every year because it's that awesome.

This just reminds me how much I want to go to another big game scenario! Also a Autococker with a sheath! Love it. I was sad that everyone always threw those aside. But then again people want to show off the upgrades they made to their pneumatics.

I would love to head over to Living Legends, but IL is an awfully long trip from NH.

Excuses. I drove from NC so I could play LL3. Would I drive again? Hell no but the experience was awesome.

Not to go on too much of a tangent, but I did do it once, but I went to D-Day at Skirmish USA years ago and it was an amazing experience. But that was just to PA and it took bloody forever.

One of these times, if I can get more friends into the sport, I may make the pilgrimage. It's a matter of going with friends though. The guys I went to PA with I don't talk to anymore.
