I made some rather rash decisions this week with regard to visiting the PoIs. I was going to use Neutron Star boosts and I learnt a few things about how I explore. Firstly it really does significantly cut down on jumps, secondly I’m easily distracted after about 10 jumps and lose concentration and finally don’t lose concentration and smack into a Neutron Star. I was lucky this time and safe in the knowledge that we have one last station to visit once we have built it of course for a repair before we turn away from the core to head to Beagle Point but it has been a solid reminder that each jump comes with a risk which though apathy or carelessness could end this journey in seconds.
Lessons aside I have however visited some lovely places starting with Jade Ghost Stella Remnant.
From there and moving up above the galactic plane to a new Poi discovered during DW2. Ebony and Ivory was a treat and all credit goes to CMDR Chalfantkr.
A few jumps away was the first major stop which was really the point I decided to start neutron jumping which took me quickly toward Ocularis Coelum.
I just loved this system and the views were spectacular.
Next stop was the Gardens of Shangri-La. This was my first experience with lightening clouds and they didn’t disappoint, I spent a significant time taking photos for the album but when I started to lose shields it was time to leave and move on towards WP6.
Much of the rest of the journey was full of beautiful Nebula of all different colours, sizes and formation.
The journey was fairly uneventful other than my neutron crash but it was nice to arrive in the Dryau Awsomes. This is a crazy system and after a brief attempt to land on the planet I decided it was rather to risky so I’m now hanging about the system. Having reach WP 6 so soon it will be nice to just spend a more leisurely look around the nearby stars, chat to some cmdrs and to take in the atmosphere.
Before I sign off this post I thought I would share a few snaps which mainly go to twitter which I have taken along the way as it seems a shame not too.
