A journey of a thousand miles must begin with a single step

It’s been some time since my last update and here it is, already, the end of the year. Good time for a look back and see how I’ve progressed against the goal I set for myself at the start of this year. But first I wanted to highlight Project 3xplo, Into the Oblivion. Capsuleer Fonsini Santy, is about to undertake a similar journey of exploration as I have done of New Eden, putting his own spin on it, blogging and documenting about his travels along the way. If you’ve enjoyed following and reading about my journey over these last many years, why else are you here, then I’m sure you’ll enjoy following Fonsini’s progress as well.

Perhaps the new activity tracker was a motivator and if not, I’ve no doubt it is for others to try and visit every system in New Eden. Such was the case of Konii Von Marchelius of Pandemic Horde but as it turns out, he ended up missing some systems and got 99.8% of known space and had a couple of ship losses along the way as well. (Psst, I’ve still not lost one.) Fantastic attempt and huge congrats as to do most of known space in 14 days with only 2 losses is simply amazing!

For others who are interested in ticking off that activity tracker, I may have some post that are helpful if you wish to undertake this journey to explore all of New Eden for yourself, from ships I’ve flown, to going about it, and taking pictures along the way.

As for my progress, you can see my stats to the right, 100% known space, over 73% wormhole space, for a total of 88% of aaaalllllll New Eden. Unfortunately, the activity tracker isn’t retroactive… yeah, I’m not doing it all again. Which brings me to my goal of upping my game to an average of 3 systems per day for this year. How’d I do? Well, let’s just say that wasn’t my average per day this year… It is what it is, wormhole space presents its own unique challenges and one that is solely determined by the will of Bob. Bob giveth and Bob taketh away. Of course Allison and Aura auguring with each other over my ship’s status is entertaining enough to keep me at it.

Goal for next year is to just keep going, why stop now?

On to next year, fly clever!
