    SLYAIKS JG-N C23-1 (Circumnavigational ELW hunt)

    CMDR Iain666 has let us know for awhile now of an unclaimed ELW at SLYAIKS JG-N C23-1. It gave me a good reason to head out that way...so off I went. After finding 8 additional untagged ELWs on my own, I finally reached the system. I left the world undisturbed, and just lingered in orbit for a moment. Seemed the classy thing to do. I shall begin my circumnavigation this evening...

    After 2 days of wading through mostly red and brown dwarfs, I finally made it to the end of the outer arm, and was greeted by 2 ELW back to back...

    Another day, another ELW. This one was found using what I like to call the "blind squirrel and acorn method" F & G star density is still too low to do any kind of real search...

    Excellent finds!

    When I went to the Outer Arm I had a move a bit farther downstream before finding a spot to cross over from Perseus. I probably should have looked harder.

    You should add them into list of ELW thread
    People assume that time is a strict progression from cause to effect. But actually it is more like a big ball of wibbly-wobbly... timey-wimey... stuff

    3 more ELWs. Star density is slowing improving, and I can almost travel solely on F & G's again. With 1355 jumps and 18 found, I'm still averaging 1 in every 75 jumps.

    Ran into a permit required sector (BOVOMIT) and found 6 more ELWs.

    With these last few ELWs, I have found more on this first leg of my trip, than I did on my entire first crossing to the far rim and back.

    Ran into another permit required sector (SIDGOIR) and 4 more ELWs.

    Seems like you've hit a gold mine of ELWs...

    It's all in how you go about looking for them Frawd. I'm constantly refining my method. Just blindly travelling, taking whatever the nav plot decides, I averaged about 1 ELW for every 230 jumps. Manually plotting each and every jump (which I have to do anyway with a 3 jump 16t tank) I can passively search as I travel and my average drops to 1 in 80 jumps or so. I have several "active search" modes, depending on star density, which lowers that to 1 in 60 or so....but even with that, you have to have volume. I have found 34 so far on this expedition, and have made 2530 jumps, in 11 days.

    I swear if I see your name attached to another rare... I will do nothing but yell at the screen again... lmao. If we divide up the galaxy into quadrants, you are a beta quadrant hero.
