Very interesting idea. Would this be a race, or a leisurely drive around at our own pace? I’d definitely consider an SRV expedition like this, could be a lot of fun!OK folks - it looks like there is definitely interest in doing a mass planetary circumnavigation expedition! I can't think about it right now 'cos I'm off on holiday in a couple of days but when I get back I'll put some thought into planning this (probably need a dedicated forum thread, a discord channel, a planet and, most importantly, a name). If people want to start scouting for planets then go for it. They need to be smallish (less than 400km radius?), low gravity (less than 0.1g would be my preference), have materials for refuel and repair synthesis, and be utterly awe inspiring to drive across (beautiful lighting, amazing canyons, etc).
As for location, I’d vote for somewhere in or close to a nebula. Also possibly a planet orbiting closely to another planet or gas giant. It’s always inspiring to see scenery like that hanging off the horizon while in the SRV, plus it would improve all of our pictures!
As for the name of the expedition, how about Distant Skylines? We’d constantly be driving towards the skyline on the edge of the world…
I'm out flying around gawking at planets now, I'll keep my eye out for a good little candidate.
