Everything sold

Everything sold. I put everything I had on sale, even the tech 1 probes and modules I had. And it all sold.

I was torn between the desire to continue onwards, or to go back to Jita to get more stuff to sell here.

Greed eventually won. I decided to make a beeline back to Jita. To trust the speed of my ship.

And I nearly made it. I was in Tribute with a couple of jumps to low sec. Thinking of the gate camp I had met on my way in. I knew they were after me, but I was fast. And stupid. They had signalled ahead, and wham! I was in a bubble, and though I tried everything that had saved me earlier, nothing seemed to work this time.

I sulked at Jita for a while. My pride hurt. My pocket felt pretty good, though. 500 million. Not bad for an exciting journey to the edge of the the galaxy. But I had lost my ship. Carelessness. Beelining.

I bought a Helios a few days ago. Am fitting it slowly. Lovingly. Trying not to get too attached to it, though.

Wondering how much of the ISK to risk. Want to invest it all, and possibly triple it. The wise thing would be to invest 250 million. Possibly make 2 trips. Good chances of one of them being successful. But knowing myself, I am likely to put it all in the hold. I hate myself.

Cloning Stations in Deklein

I made my way through Tribute uneventfully. Most of the systems were not well populated. I settled into a routine of bouncing off planets and warping straight to gates in minimally populated systems.

The Sisters probes were selling at nearly twice the cost, but I felt this was too early to sell (Trade at III now).

Active system in Tribute

None of the locals tried to contact me, though many chased me briefly. I came across a station by mistake when I warped to a planet in a densely populated system, but no great excitement.

I moved briefly through Venal and was in Deklein soon enough. I would have patted myself on the back, but I knew this would invite disaster.

I had travelled a fair bit and wanted to dock. Move clone. Fit overdrive. Sell probes.

The map showed a number of stations in Deklein with cloning facilities and I decided to try these.

Caught!

The gate camp was at the first jump into null. At the Lonetrek-Tribute crossing.

I was caught in a bubble and there were more than 10 ships all around me. I tried to warp but it would not work. I knew this was the end, and felt sad that my cargo would not make it even one jump into null.

Lonetrek-Tribute Jump

Fortunately I had managed to turn on the cloaking device. Heart thumping, I frantically tried to manoeuvre downwards while ships moved around me.

After an eternity, I felt the atmosphere clear, and I warped out of disaster.

Took a while to regain composure. Sitting in a safe spot, I tinkered with my overview for a while to get it to actually show some useful information.

Time to head onwards.
