Right guys.. reality check here.. we’ve got 3 more days worth of fuel in the POS, thank you very much!
Now that’s a fun way to start your day in Planet Risk, having a quote like that from Quivering, on a Friday before the second leg of the Alliance Tourney, which we will be covering the following days.
Captain’s Log, stardate H2IK,
Since operations during the tourney are going to be really tough, we had to find a way to perform the refueling operation tonight. As soon as we got a new C5, we jumped in and started scanning for a high-sec exit. Took 3 scanners and 3 hours but eventually we found a connecting Class 3, which in turn connected to a secondary Class 3, which led to a tertiary Class 3, and through which we finally found an exit to high-sec… 21 jumps away from Jita.
Earlier on though, we went ahead and bought 2 months worth of fuel for both our POS’s as this time around we want to have a relatively safe margin for future refueling ops, an amount that weighed in excess of 300.000m³. An amount that had to be hauled back in Planet Risk.
From this point on, I’m going to fast forward a very.. VERY.. VERY boring time period of 5,5 hours and 150 jumps for each one of the haulers which ended up at 8am local time (yay for sleep deprivation) when we managed to bring most of the fuel in.
So yes.. I know this is one hell of a boring story but there are two important lessons to be learned here…
a) never leave the refueling business when the POS is critically low on fuel, as it leads to burning seriously the midnight oil and..
b) use a damn freighter!
PS: We welcome Estar Tarns inside Planet Risk.. finally!
