I needed to get to Arkadia for Space Skilling Saturday, Wolta was already on the surface and Nocturaline in Ancient Greece so it was in the middle, kind of.
The journey was uneventful, I did not see another active vessel but I did stop at Zeus for a cup of tea, not a bad cafe. Leaving there I took a little damage from some Cosmic Horrors in Gordon’s Belt but just ignored them.
Once at Arkadia I positioned the ship ready for Space Skilling Saturday before logging.
From the desk of
That sounds so wrong.
Location:- Gordon’s Belt.
Time:- 1800 MA.
Present:- Wolta, Nocturaline, Phil & Myself.
We start at Calypso Space Station where I summoned Nocturaline before heading to Crystal Palace to pick-up Wolta.
Wolta takes the helm and manoeuvres us away from Crystal Palace before warping to Zeus Space Station. She emerged from warp close to the station then we headed into Gordon’s Belt.
We were kept quite busy in repair, though with 3 of us I rarely needed to use the RK-20. Hunting was easier than normal as there were fewer targets each time even though they did more damage per Horror.
I took the next stint at the helm, the skill gains were quite good but the mobs were quite sparse so I was not giving Engineering much to do at least not consistent work anyway. When the skill gains stopped I used the right top turret to total the Horrors.
Nocturaline kept me busy in Engineering and in a turret though part of that was due to Wolta having to log, living up to the Sleepyhead name there. I had to visit the turret many times during this session but for few mobs each time.
After this we headed Sub-warp to Arkadia with Nocturaline still at the helm and me sitting in the rear turret. It gave me a chance to write this log entry.
Wolta listens to Alain Souchon, Nocturaline listens to Violet Stigmata and later Vivaldi’s four seasons, for me it was podcasts again, “Inside the Huddle” and a couple of “Mike & Mikes”.
A previous client contacted me while I was hunting on Monria with Wolta and Nocturaline. A warp return journey Arkadia – Calypso – Arkadia was required later in the day. I explained the pricing including a discount for a regular client, no easy task considering I was hunting, I also informed them of my availability.
On re-log later in the day, the job was go. I headed to the ship and informed Wolta and Nocturaline who joined me shortly. We headed away from Monria and initiated Warp, arriving almost immediately z+ of Arkadia Space Station consequently docking manoeuvres were minimal. I informed our client that the ship was at there disposal and after a short wait a summons request was made and executed.
Logged off transport was required so the site address was given and once the client had left EU, we headed away from Arkadia Space Station and engaged warp arriving above Calypso Space Station with the same degree of accuracy as previous, providing a swift transport, Twitter was updated, our client reconnected and headed to the surface while we waited in readiness.
About 50 minutes later the summons request was received and once our client was aboard and logged off we returned to Arkadia, once again arriving very close to the Space Station, with Twitter updated and re-log complete I was paid and our client headed to the surface.
We then headed to Crystal Palace at Sub-warp with Wolta and then Nocturaline at the helm. A small diversion was made in Gordon’s Belt for some minimal skilling.
Space chat was very active most of the journey, most of it seemed to he insulting pirates.
I headed away from Arkadia fairly early in the morning, having slept quite poorly I was not really with it. As I did not yet know the destination I headed for Erebos just because it is central. About 10 minutes into the flight Wolta came on line and after a brief discussion we decided to head to Calypso. Realising I had a few stackables on me from yesterday’s small hunt I deviated to Crystal Palace.
We did a little skilling in Gordon’s Belt on the way. When we were about an hour out I realised I was dozing off again so Wolta took the helm to prevent me from crashing into Calypso.
Crystal Palace was reached without issue and I deposited my stackables before we headed to Calypso Space Station and docked in our customary location before we headed to the surface in my quad. I did manage to crash into the pathfinder on the way, other than that it was a quiet journey.
