On the 6th Dec (Tuesday night at around 10:45pm) I started the long journey to Colonia. Just after an hour I reached the first check-point - Hillary Depot (which is around 2,200ly from the home-bubble). So the next day Wednesday I carried on my journey.

The next place to reach was Amundsen Terminal (in Lagoon Sector NI-S b4-10). This took around an hour and 10 minutes. I must admit my landing wasnt the best because there are some very large mountains which surround the base - making it tricky to land.

After which it was time to travel to the next location - Eagle's Landing (Eagle Sector IR-W d1-117). This took another hour and 20 minutes. I did suffer some minor damage through this trip because I think I went too near a star. Nothing else bad happened and I reached the base.

So the final part of the journey on Wednesday was to reach Gagarin Gate (Gru Hypue KS-T d3-31 system). I did seriously consider going to Sacaqawea Space Port first but when looking at the map it seemed a little off-course, so I opted for Gagarin Gate instead. This was by far the worst part of my journey, as it lasted just under 4 hours alone!

So yesterday I put in 6 hours, and managed to reach Gagarin Gate from Hillary Depot. The whole trip has been around 7 hours so far. I do hope to reach Colonia today.
