Fatique is playing a part after hours of driving,

After leaving Cp 13 I actually went the opposite way...

Luckily I set up checkpoints, Cp 12 showed up on the screen waking me up.

One of the reasons I like replacing the navball texture with one with more detail.  Of course, even stock there's that red line on the N heading line. :)

@Triop, living on the edge, risking Jeb and his sole remaining extra solar panel.  What if Val doesn't want to bring out a 3rd rover....

He's aware.  He wants to finish his own personal drive-about before putting up a challenge.

But it did make me look up the original Elcano and discover this tidbit from @Fengist:

Advice to explorers

I'm still testing a theory but, I highly suspect that issues I've had with ground based vehicles while doing extended, multi-save and restore missions are caused by quicksaving while the vehicle is in motion. On two missions I've had hugely misaligned parts. Gravitational and motion stresses on ground-based vehicles are a LOT more than spacecraft. If you quicksave while a part is misaligned due to these stresses and then reload, you just doomed your vessel to a corrupt save. Again, it's a theory I'm testing but it sure sounds plausible.

That makes sense. Something is weird, though in my case it had the opposite effect. In the Dessert Derby I had a crash.  You can see my wrecked and bent rover. When I reloaded the quicksave this morning (I was going to let the crew out for a walk and pick them up later) my Rover was no longer bent. The engine was still gone rendering it unusable, but the suspension had repaired itself.

I thought Elcano means full circumnavigation.

Pole2Pole is only 1/2 around the planet.

The journey continues:

While Jeb is sleeping we have some time to go and check out that river:

There is a small passage, but I'm going to avoid that... :unsure:

And we are back home.

How do you draw nice the path on the map view? ingame feature or image editing?

Open screenshot with MS Paint :lol:

Did I say boring ? ? ?

I went by a crater that sucked me in like a whirlpool.

The car was going faster and faster...

I can't steer at that speed, the buggy can roll over, and I'm not taking that risk.

New route, funny you can't see the crater on the map.

It's been a while since I played KSP (currently going through my mods and shifting as many as possible to CKAN from JSGME), but AFAIK in stock joints will stretch but completely elastically.  They don't have a plastic phase where some deformation becomes permanent.  Unless you installed a deformation mod like Kerbal Krash System.  It's not yet had a 1.4.x release.  If you have KKS, then it could be interacting in weird ways.  If you don't, I'm stumped.

It almost looks like on crashing the part was still attached but shifted to a different angle WRT the centre body, then on reload it's back to its original position.

Killer Klowns ?!?  Quick, ready the Anti Killer-Klown Kannon !!!

Or worse, it could a hole in the ground leading to those other Clowns.

It was hard to see in just one screenshot in the dark, but I imagine the Bridge route was too perilous, even without  a Bridgekeeper.

Looks like a good and shorter route.  ONWARD

...and that shorter route looks rather...challenging.  I'm predicting more air time in Jeb's near future. :)

Your prediction came true, I wish I choose the bridge option...

Up close terrain keeps changing, I'm mountain climbing now ! :confused:
