The Strangest Places You've Listened to RPPR?
« on: January 14, 2014, 11:25:44 AM »
I download the Actual Plays onto my iPod, which I generally take with me when I go hiking. So basically; at the top of Hay Bluff, during the hike up Snowdon, and whilst scrambling along the Clevedon coastline. Also, when I had a pretty miserable job as a marshal at a paintball centre, last Summer, RPPR kept me entertained during the tedium of kit-cleaning and gun-maintenance.

How about the rest of you?

The Venezuelan-Colombian border.

No, seriously.

We had a thread like this way back. Glad to see a new one.

My go to is that I used to listen to RPPR on my MP3 player in the back of my church and sometimes had to stifle laugher during sermons.

I also walk rather than drive most of the time so sometimes I've been outside during the dark of winter, close to midnight, crossing a bridge over a swamp with an RPPR Call of Cthulhu game to keep me company.

Now was this while on the run from the cartels?

Nah, nothing that glamorous.

 I live in Venezuela, and I went on bus to Colombia. This was quite a few years ago, maybe 2010? I remember that I listened to U-Boote Herause Parts 1 & 2 almost front to back during the trip, and that Adam Scott Glancy's dulcet tones was all that made the 9 hour bus ride close to bearable.

I actually listened to my first RPPR games while on a small bus (really a glorified van) crammed with people in Costa Rica going from the airport in San Jose down to the far south pacific coast line.

After that it has been a lot less interesting, I listen on planes while I travel for work and such but mostly I got a fitbit a year or so ago and listen to RPPR as well as other podcasts while getting my steps in.

I'm willing to bet that I'm both RPPRs most northern listener and it's most southern listener.

I have regularly listened to RPPR right up at the Arctic circle at 6541' North and also regularly (thou understandably not at the same time) at 4253' South.

I'd love to see if anyone can proof me wrong.

I usually have earphones in when I travel and often walk around the cities I am in. The strangest places might have been a medival castle, a radio station and a few occupied buildings. All of them in Germany, which probably isn't a very exotic locale.

A bit off topic, but the activities I'm involved on are usually stranger than the actual location.  That is, unless you count Eastern Kentucky as strange.  So far this past year I have listened to rppr actual play sessions while operating a chainsaw and deer hunting. Infact, I was listening to the No Evil series when I shot a buck this past November. I think it was the episode when the group apprehended Killie.

Walmart.  At 3:00 A.M. 

RPPR gave me courage.  RPPR gave me strength.

I listened to a few episodes the Eclipse Phase campaign while drinking moonshine in the Galapagos foothills. Then I went to see tortoises!

Sitting on metal stairs just above fifteen feet of water, four stories underground at a concrete plant. The sump pumps had failed and I had to repair them.

It was dark, wet, cold and I was listening to Iron Devil.

While investigating identity theft.
Literally on the beach.
While driving through hill towns with fog so thick you couldn't see five feet ahead.
