I had to run Chella to Rens the other day. I was building things and Rens happened to have a particular piece at a very good price. When she got there, to my astonishment, there was an Orca sitting in my hangar. And, I found myself staring at this Orca. This Orca in my hangar. It was a while until my lips moved and I asked myself, "Where did this come from?"
It turns out that I purchased that Orca in December. I did it as a favor to someone who needed ISK. I wanted another Orca for a project I was going to do over the winter. Instead, I ran for CSM and that project fell to the wayside and the Orca sat in its hangar under a dust cover until I stumbled upon it again.
My asset list needs cleaning. I used to clean it regularly. But, sometime over the last year or so I've fallen out of the habit. I got more and more into PvP and I just dumped things in stations as I went. That stuff has accumulated and it is not as bad as many others, it is still much, much messier than I'd like.
I don't have hidden billions tucked away in these stations. Mostly, its loot dropped and the occasional ship I've left after a roam. I never roamed back home, alone so I have many abandoned ships. The abandoned ships I don't mind. They become useful when the fleet loses a ship and you can just hand someone a fit out ship to keep the fleet moving. The cluttered stuff bugs me.
Right now I am torn between sending Chella to do pickups and writing cheap courier contracts to see if people pick them up. I would just dump stuff in the nearest high sec station....
Aside: In the middle of writing this I heard Exile curse on coms. It turns out that they had taken a wormhole chain (how we love these new wormholes) and wound up at the other end of an unbookmarked nullsec hole with no prober. I went out to do a rescue, backtracked their path and had the fleet warp to me to bookmark their exit. I then headed home. I love rescue missions.
...or write the contract to the nearest high sec system. Then I could putter about and collect it all. It may be a good project for these exhausted days when I'm slumped in my chair to tired to participate in much. I don't trust myself to stock the store at those times. After winding up with five thousand small scorch crystals I've become more careful.
