Day 17 – Company

It is safe to say I am still stinging a lot from yesterday’s loss. I was really excited to get going, but it was not meant to be.

This morning there were a lot of signatures in my system. 5 wormholes and a new Frontier Barracks.

I got my PI done and even a little bit of huffing at the Sizeable Perimeter Reservoir that showed up yesterday.

It didn’t last long though because my D-Scan filled up very quickly and I put myself on lockdown.

With all those entry and exit holes I knew it would be a day full of tourists.

I poked my nose into one of the neighbouring holes and fell in love. It is a C2, loads of sites, a highsec connection and, best of all, no one lives there! I’ve parked an alt there to keep an eye on things. Maybe when I have enough funds to get a new Athanor I can put it in there if no one else has moved in.

I think there is a lot of competition in C2s though.

Huffing

I started huffing in the gas site that arrived yesterday but it just got too dangerous. I huffed 6,510,000 isk in gas.

Now, I’m a bit torn. If I stockpile gas I wont get isk quick enough to get a new refinery anytime soon. While gas hasn’t been the most reliable source of income, it has been my biggest earner. So I think what I’m going to do is continue to sell the gas until I’m able to get another Athanor then start again with stockpiling.

I considered only selling half my gas, but have decided against that. I’ll sell it all and start again when I need to.

A Busy System

I sat on my static once D-Scan filled up and was sure I was being invaded and evicted. I don’t know how they found the hole because it was a new static and I hadn’t been through it. Warping to it should keep the K162 closed on the other side as long as I don’t go through the hole. At least, that’s what I thought the case was.

Well, BNB3 and BNB5 had found my system and were using it as a highway to/from their home. I first noticed them earlier when they had a guard on a hole one system over. I didn’t think anything of it at the time until I saw their pack in my home system. Either they were roaming (which puts my home system in jeopardy) or they were going to kick some specific a$$ (which is fine as long as it’s not me).

A few days ago when I was used as a thoroughfare for a shopping trip I was curious, but not nervous. After yesterday’s events though, I was nervous. And seeing the sheer numbers, I was very nervous.

They went about their business without giving my humble home a second look and I was happy to log off knowing I should still have a home tomorrow morning. At least, it shouldn’t be this corp kicking me out.

Parting Thoughts

Financially I’m slowly clawing my way back from the black hole that is the debt I’ve created for myself. I need to put some effort into running sites and find a good gas cloud or two. Otherwise it will take me forever to make up my losses.

I am going on holiday next week which means I have a busy week ahead but need to make time to earn some isk. While I’m away things will come to a grinding halt and I don’t know if I’ll be able to connect and keep an eye on things. That makes losing my home a very real possibility.

If I do get evicted during that time, I will take it as a sign to move holes. If I don’t, I’ll take it as a sign that I’m really lucky!
