    It went very well. We had a pirate shoot us down to begin with thinking we might have loot from hunting horrors (more repairs for us!), but then he left us lone. After we got done he shot at us some more as we were ferrying back to the planet. He got some nova and dung, I think..

    But everyone who went had a great time, other than that. :)

    Do you have a VTOL or a Quad with a thruster?? Come join us.. Ace has parked the Gagarin at Ark for now, so we can use it when we want to.. We are a few ppl out atm, find us either at Arkadia Space Station or in Arkadia Training Grounds, and "knock the door" (request to be added to guestlist) .. Ace is aware there might be knockings on the door, and if you write here that you are coming, I can warn him.. We can sell you both RK-5 and WW at a cheap price.. join us and see your skills go up like a speeding bullet!!!

    Okay so i did a total skill count before and after last nights trip, and a skill count of the involved skills too..

    I'll try and set it up nicely:

    Used materials:
    2 full TT RK-5 @ 11 Ped each auc price = 22 Ped total
    matching number of WW = 101536 = 10.15 ped - with MU = 24.36 Ped
    total cost: 46.36 ped

    total skill points before trip: 151960
    total skill points after trip: 153056

    difference = +1096 total skill points

    Involved skills count:

    Before trip:
    Blueprint Comprehension 555
    Electronics 338
    Engineering 2229
    Intelligence 60
    Mechanics 305
    Serendipity 4367
    Vehicle Repairing 864
    Vehicle Technology 411

    After trip:
    Blueprint Comprehension 709
    Electronics 457
    Engineering 2299
    Intelligence 60
    Mechanics 436
    Serendipity. 4371
    Vehicle Repairing 1292
    Vehicle Technology 601

    Total gain each skill:
    Blueprint Comprehension 154
    Electronics 119
    Engineering 70
    Intelligence 0
    Mechanics 131
    Serendipity 4
    Vehicle Repairing 428
    Vehicle Technology 190

    Bottom line is: I got a total of 1096 skill points for an auction price of 46.36 ped .. You wont even get a fracture of that number from clicking yourself to your first 46.36 ped loss in crafting.. Even when removing the Vehicle skills we are still talking about 478 skill points.. ITS A LOT!!

    Pays off going skilling with the RK-5's.. pays off ALOT..

    Due to circumstances, we cannot continue offering this on a schedule. Someone we invited evidently proposed a new deal idea. From a business standpoint, it's a good idea. But because of that, we take a back seat now and can't guarantee when it will be available.

    If something changes and it falls through, I'll post again. But as of now, we won't be able to guarantee anything.

    Since I have the week off, I will try to make it. Hopefully I will be available. I really enjoy those kinds of trips, although I have only been on Normandie. They are fun and can be a good challenge to keep the ship alive. It takes a good pilot, gunner crew and the repair crew needs to be on their toes. Good music helps too. :)

    I have gotten word from Ace that he can sadly not be there to summon as he is on RT, and doesnt get home from work untill 19:00 MA time.. So we will have to get up there by VTOL/Quad tonight.. If anyone who is not on the guestlist want to join, please come to the Quarry before 18:45 ..

    I'll make a team with those who are "new" and wants to join, and then add Ace as soon as he gets on, so he can add you to guest list. Tonight I will be piloting, as im out of RK-5/WW/Ped..

    We need to organize the transportation up to Ark SS/Directly to the ship, therefore - those who are already on the guestlist please show up at the quarry no later than 18:30.. we would rather have plenty of time than spend our event time discussing who is flying with who.

    Due to the bugs in Space, we're probably not going to be doing the trip this week... We don't want to have to have MA unstick us from the Gagarin... We'll try after the next update. :)
