Having had to rush the last few weeks given IRL and the required distance it’s been really nice to have a more casual approach this week. As we have cruised through the Izanami region there have been many discoveries given the shear weight of commanders flying through the area. It is however noticeable now that many have decided to turn around or are starting to lag behind. A cursory look at EDSM shows that by Sunday morning those syncing their data only 15.84% had made it of the original starting volumes.
Not having joined the DW1 expedition I told this was similar then and maybe only 10% made it to Beagle Point, I’m not going to lie the endless jumping takes its toll and thoughts of retirement when I was near the core were never too far but like any challenge there has to be an element of true grit and determination to get over the finish line.
With that in mind this week’s leg I believe is going to be the longest to date and around 14klys between way points. We have been asked by the GMP (Galactic Mapping Project) to survey the area which may turn up some new interesting discoveries and with this legs time frame set at 2 weeks gives a less rushed feel.
I’ll let this weeks pictures and descriptions speak for themselves but we’re not far now and you can almost feel the collective tension of commanders readying themselves for Beagle Point
