Starting work on the first place of many to be built on my section of the track. Since this place is most of the way along the track I figure a good cheap motel is in order.
Ok… getting TO the asteroid and doing a rendezvous with it was fairly routine stuff. The same goes for docking with it. It turns out however that maneuvering it is another matter entirely. The hard part is keeping it aligned in the correct direction for the duration of the burn. oh, and using full thrust is out of the question, that causes it to spin out of control.
Seriously, thunderstorms are awesome. That’s why my favorite time of year is spring when the thunderstorms start to roll big time.
The horse track that Xisuma built recently goes past my multi-farm so I’m considering what kind of things I could build there.
Every once in a while somebody notices how my left arm looks just a bit odd.

The ARM-1 ship finally arrives at it’s rendezvous with the as yet unnamed class E Asteroid. In maneuvering to grab hold of it with the new advanced grabber unit (a.k.a “The Claw”) I found the experience to be very much like trying to dock with a large chunk of flying mountain.
