Fieldtrip

I've never been good at forcing myself to do things that are not fun in Eve. In truth, I tend to become bitchy when I force myself into situations I don't want to be in. It is not a mood I enjoy being in. A cranky adult is an unpleasant experience. I should probably bve writing about the industry changes and some other stuff. I expect I'll work my way around to it.

Right now, I'm distracted. You see, for reasons I cannot fathom Siuil and Vov decided to do a bunch of 4/10 and 5/10 DED sites that Siuil found pooled in a back system. On most days it would be an amazing situation with five sites piled one on top of another in one place. This time it was far from that because earlier in the afternoon an incursion had hit the system.

Incursions are more than annoyances in low sec. People often move out of the area all together. Some groups do run these incursions to great results. But, when it comes to the day to day movement and activity they are, in my opinion, a nightmare.

Not that kind.

Every time someone in low sec complains about how horrible incursions are people tell us to suck it up and that they are not that bad. I can only roll my eyes. I have abandoned two ships two systems away and I will go and get them later. Dealing with the gatecamping blapablaping rats is not worth losing my ISK making boats. Getting into Isto is a trial and when the idea came up to go on a field trip we said, "Okay!"

So off we go to somewhere far away. I did a jump planner and saw that it would be several midpoints. I covered my eyes but I will survive. I've done this before and I've gotten damn good at it. Time is ticking down. I came home from work and started to get my things shifted. I'm just buying new boats instead of trying to make multiple trips out of Istodard. Maybe I will lose them all and shit up my ISK efficiency some.

The biggest part is balancing both my logistics and the sudden influx of corp logistics on each other while figuring out where my staging systems for things are going to be. I think I have it all figured out. This is why I love my personal chat channel. I will set the MOTD with all of the pertinent information. It takes me forever to learn new systems. Everyone else is rattling off names and I'm squinting at Dotlan in frustration.

Such is life. It will be interesting to see if the POCO war with Kelts will continue as well as other fires the boys have stirred up. My POCOpire may be in for a shaky time (as in my losing it all). We shall see. I think I have enough Data for an overall monthly look at my POCOs. I'll get that written up and it will help me see if I will rebuild my empire should it fall (I probably will because I am stupidly stubborn sometimes and I am very focused on these urban renewal projects of mine).

And if it all burns down?  Well, it can rise from the ashes. Someone has to have a Phoenix somewhere.
