I'm not cut out for long distance driving. I'll quicksave every 5km and get cocky and the one time I don't save is the time I crash after 50km of effort.

How can you live with yourself ? ;)

I took a sort of in between route:

Buggy 2, you mean Val ?

She is on her way back to the KFC   KSC, sort of....

I knew we didn't had enough fuel . . .

So now she's stuck in the middle of nowhere.

But no worries, I'll arrange a tanker plane to bring some juice...

Coming up: Day 5.

I numbered them in the order they were deployed.  Jeb took out Buggy 1, which didn't have enough...solar panels?  So Val brought out Buggy 2 and they swapped.  And I see that you've renamed Buggy 2 as "Samurai" because of how its extra solar panels look.

Anyhoo, looking forward to what happens next. :)

Refueling time.

I don't mind having to do this, I'm glad I can do something else then driving all day. :lol:

No time is lost cause Jeb is still on the dark side of Kerbin waiting for sunrise.

Next up will be flying these 2 planes home.

Our tanker was not so lucky, lost her engine on a bump while taking off... :unsure:

The tanker is lost, but now we have to pick up Tangard . . . <_<

Jeb is still in the dark, so we have lots of time.

We are sending Val, she knows the way... :lol:

You sir, are giving me nightmares . . . :o

It would not be the end if Jeb would survive a crash.

I allowed myself in the rules to fly in a new buggy if that would happen.

But I hope that doesn't happen, it would be so cool if I can take this piece of crap to the Southpole, I'm kinda attached to it . . .

So is Jeb, he's been in his cockpit for 5 days now :confused:

I bet his socks will smell . . .

Anyway, we are drivin 'n charging now as we speak.

I'm still waiting for a like resupply....

This is so cool.  Now I'm wondering if it can be done faster....  Rocket buggy with in-motion refueling?  Nuclear buggy?

Please wait, I will turn this into a challenge as soon™ as I finish.

Yes it can be done faster, I'm driving an electric brick. ^_^

Keep in mind that a challenge like this needs a lot of dedication.

The only reason I'm still driving is the support I get on this thread.

Without it I would have stopped hours ago, you have to be mad to do this. :confused:

We are sending Jeb to the beach, he needs to wash up after 5 days in the cockpit.

We need a next waypoint anyway.

Is it just me or does Kerbin looks like a giant golf course ? :sticktongue:

I still have one solar panel left, I've decided to continue without asking for a replacement . . . I'm to attached to the Samurai, I'll drag this baby to the Southpole if I have to...
