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!
