Sorry Storm it had to be done  :D

LOL!

I wondered where my NPC character would end up, and what "profession" he would be.

First quarter of the journey complete, just arrived at Jaques Station with a nice 26.5 Million Credits in exploration data.

Next stop Beagle Point.

It's a very long trip.

Picture attached is the route someone else took so they bookmarked the route that they were taking which is the blue squares.

The route I am taking is the red line to there and then the green line back, total round trip 130,000Ly in a straight line but mine will be close to 160,000Ly or more at 55Ly per jump at the max but as I get closer the jump range will drop to around 35Ly.

The main area where people play (the bubble) is on one side of the galaxy and Beagle point in a straight line is 65,000Ly on the other side of the galaxy.

The last time I went out there, I was tempted about 2 or 3 times to just blow my ship up on the way back for a fast trip back to the bubble but I flew all the way back, took about a week or two with 12 hours a day pretty much but I wasn't doing it as fast as I could, but again this time I am going to take my time to try and add, some more Earth Like worlds to my bookmarks with my name on them, as currently I have 22 since they introduced bookmarks, but I know I have about 20 more that are not bookmarked and the chances of finding them are practically 0.

Either way it's fun but can get boring at times when you are doing it on your own, but I have youtube to watch videos on whilst flying or music to listen to.

Well thanks to a mishap with a neutron star I am back in the bubble.

Went to get a FSD Boost to take me up to 250Ly jump range for a single jump, and I went in to the jet cone to fast and couldn't fight my way out 20 seconds later I was looking at a rebuy screen.
