Elite Journal: The Long Ride Home (April Exploration Day 15)

After a short stay in the ALS 299 System, I left Thor’s Helmet behind me and set off back home…

This was a VERY long journey, but I managed to complete the journey within day 15! Quite an epic bit of travelling really…

Arriving home in LTT 4961 was such a welcome end to my journey, but I am oh-so-ready to head back out again! I never thought exploration would take hold of me in the way it has…

The journey had very few actual dangers except those I caused for myself; Almost getting stuck in the rift of stars far past the Crab Nebula, or even tackling some of the planets I did with the Scarab SRV… It was a lot of fun for me.

I think I made about 15 million credits all-in-all, pretty happy with that considering profit isn’t the motivation!

Space Gaming Category Information

My first space game addiction was with David Braben's 'Frontier - Elite II' released in 1993 on the Commodore Amiga. This game actually gave me so much of what I wanted in a game that I continued to play it until the 'Elite - Dangerous' release in 2014.

I also played through the 'Wing Commander' series from Chris Roberts, enjoying them immensely. This led directly to my support of his 2012 crowdfunding campaign for the Star Citizen and Squadron 42 games that are still in development.

These days I use gaming to try to escape from the pressures of real life. I also occasionally upload or stream gameplay to YouTube and Twitch, and rather than doing this to instruct others of the best way to play, I do it because of the social interaction with viewers and other gamers.
