I've got about 4-5 jumps left, so I'll be there in a couple of hours, and I'll invite @TheLaw through multi-crew, so he can at least still see the centre in some capacity. I'll hang around out there until @MiniSanders gets a chance to see the centre & anything else around there.

 

Once he's good to go, I'll be heading back to Colonia to mine the Tritium to refuel the carrier, make sure Law is docked on the carrier when that's done (this is important), then we'll head back to the bubble from there. I'll be coming back from the galactic core with less in the hold, so the fuel usage per jump will be lower.

Welp, despite everything, the carrier has made it.

 

And finally, after all this time... what a sight!

I present to you, the butthole of the universe! Sagittarius A! 

Predz ended up inviting me via the ingame "multi" crew function, jumped into one of the fighters docked in the ship and flew around for a bit.

Finally got around to logging on and checking out Sag-A... 

Almost forgot what system I started into get back to the carrier, but managed to work it out and I am re-docked on the Phoenix. 

Thanks for giving me a lift out to see that Predz

No problemo Mini. And don't worry, I got lost heading back to the carrier the other night, with that many systems around the core, I jumped to a different system before finding the right one.

 

So with that, I'll probably start the jumps back to Colonia either tomorrow or Monday.

I got the carrier back to Colonia last night. TheLaw has docked on the carrier once again. I might try to do some Tritium mining this week, though I'll keep an eye out for any carriers selling the stuff & buy it from them if I can afford it (provided it's not some ridiculous amount). I'm doing some combat missions as well to get the money for that, if the opportunity arises.

Instead of fixing hotspots to make Tritium easier to mine, they changed how much is used per FC jump. With those changes, turns out I have enough to head back to the bubble now.

 

With both @MiniSanders & @TheLaw docked now, I'll be starting the jumps shortly. We'll probably be back at LHS 215 either tomorrow or the day after.

On the 4th of July, @TheLaw, @MiniSanders & I started the trip to Colonia & Sagittarius A*

Now, on the 17th of August (just over 6 weeks later), we're back in the bubble!

 

Last jump for the carrier was only 24LY, so I got in the 'Vette, went to LHS 215 & docked with Spring Gateway. The carrier arrived soon after.

 

After all the ups & downs, all I can say is... 

 

It's good to be home!

About a week ago, Frontier brought GalNet (the in-game news) back to life, with a new storyline involving... how should I put it... "Fucking Terrorists!" - Roman Bellic, GTA IV

 

Stations being attacked with Thargoid-based weapons (been doing some search & rescue runs at one of the damaged stations myself for the last week), Imperial royalty being assassinated, Empire in flames (meanwhile, Federation & Alliance be all like "WTF mate!")... There's actually stuff going on again... Where was this game hiding!?

 

In other news, there's 2 community goals happening atm (https://inara.cz/galaxy-communitygoals/), both having to do with upgrading some refinery outposts to full sized starports, so Tritium can be bought using large ships to speed up refuelling carriers. Each goal is for building a certain type of starport, with one being for the Orbis type (https://elite-dangerous.fandom.com/wiki/Orbis), while the other is for the Coriolis type (https://elite-dangerous.fandom.com/wiki/Coriolis).
