A journey of a thousand miles must begin with a single step

” Do the difficult things while they are easy and do the great things while they are small. A journey of a thousand miles must begin with a single step.” – Lao Tzu, Philosopher/Writer

It’s been some time since my last update and here it is, already, the end of the year. Good time for a look back and see how I’ve progressed against the goal I set for myself at the start of this year. But first I wanted to highlight Project 3xplo, Into the Oblivion. Capsuleer Fonsini Santy, is about to undertake a similar journey of exploration as I have done of New Eden, putting his own spin on it, blogging and documenting about his travels along the way. If you’ve enjoyed following and reading about my journey over these last many years, why else are you here, then I’m sure you’ll enjoy following Fonsini’s progress as well.

Perhaps the new activity tracker was a motivator and if not, I’ve no doubt it is for others to try and visit every system in New Eden. Such was the case of Konii Von Marchelius of Pandemic Horde but as it turns out, he ended up missing some systems and got 99.8% of known space and had a couple of ship losses along the way as well. (Psst, I’ve still not lost one.) Fantastic attempt and huge congrats as to do most of known space in 14 days with only 2 losses is simply amazing!

For others who are interested in ticking off that activity tracker, I may have some post that are helpful if you wish to undertake this journey to explore all of New Eden for yourself, from ships I’ve flown, to going about it, and taking pictures along the way.

As for my progress, you can see my stats to the right, 100% known space, over 73% wormhole space, for a total of 88% of aaaalllllll New Eden. Unfortunately, the activity tracker isn’t retroactive… yeah, I’m not doing it all again. Which brings me to my goal of upping my game to an average of 3 systems per day for this year. How’d I do? Well, let’s just say that wasn’t my average per day this year… It is what it is, wormhole space presents its own unique challenges and one that is solely determined by the will of Bob. Bob giveth and Bob taketh away. Of course Allison and Aura auguring with each other over my ship’s status is entertaining enough to keep me at it.

Goal for next year is to just keep going, why stop now?

On to next year, fly clever!

  1. Awesome achievements until now Katie. It’s a petty I haven’t found your blog before. 🙂
    ill read things in retrospective and learn how you have managed not to lose a single ship. Amazing. All the best for the rest of your journey and may we meet in space.

    Fly safe,

    • Thanks for stopping by and taking a look. I hope some of the information is useful to you and I certainly wish you the best in your journey. I’ll be honest, it’s like being in the military, long periods of boredom with moments of intense excitement. 🙂

  2. Hi, I stumbled on your blog a few weeks ago. And now up to date with it. I did a short spell in signal myself and must agree on your comments, a good bunch of guys and gals! Any would be peaceful explorer would be well advised to look them up.
    Unfortunately my exploration persona is now co-owner of a farm for skills to help fund my other projects so station bound in Jita. But she is getting the travel itch again after reading your blog. I am looking forward to your next instalment. Oh as a side note, I donated a few skins to the corp which was all part of the forum thread a while back including astero ones. So if you got one of them, we’ll, that made me smile to think they have gone to good homes. Keep up the exploration not far to go now.

  3. I finally finished reading your blog to date. Amazing achievement. I spent a short time in Signal Cartel and donated several skins including astero skins to people while there. Don’t know if one of them found it’s way to you but it made me smile that those skins people donated have gone to good homes. Looking forward to the next installment so you now have to write it as people are waiting 🙂
    Good luck with your mission o7

    • Thanks for stopping by! And Wow! Reading as much as you have, truly humbled and so glad you took the time to comment. Very kind of you to have donated the skins and I’ve no doubt they were given great homes. 🙂 I should write more, you’re right. My bad and I can’t promise, but hope to do more, at least once a month if nothing else to keep everyone up on my status. Trying to be creative and figure out different ways to tackle this mess, I mean endeavor. 😉 Fly clever!
