We formed up for the roam in Thera, where Mynxee handed out ships and skillbooks to anyone who needed them. Training a racial frigate skill takes eight minutes and our doctrine Griffin fits only require Caldari Frigate I. The fleet had a couple of slight wrinkles compared to our normal wartime Hugs fleets. First, the fleet consisted of a logistics wing of 15 ships and a 42-ship HPS (Hugs Per Second) wing consisting mainly of Griffins. Perhaps more amusingly, one of our squads consisted of Forsaken Asylum pilots led by Sahriah BloodStone. Yes, an alliance that wardec'd us not that long ago flew alongside us in a celebration fleet. Outsiders may scratch their heads, but our corp credo leads to some unusual personal interactions, at least for EVE.
Once the corp members cleaned out some goodies in containers located throughout Thera, we left the wormhole for our first destination, Titanomachy. The journey went without issues as the fleet traveled through the mostly desterted systems between our Thera exit and B-R5RB. I think 50 ship spikes in local led the few residents in space to dock up and hide.

Since we couldn't get any action in Amarr, we shifted to the next target: Apollo Tyrannos.

Once we finished hugging Apollo, we headed back to Thera where most of the fleet hung out at our home station. I didn't quite make it. I misclicked in space and didn't warp off with the others. By the time I aligned, a Muninn one-shotted me and I entered warp without a ship. Oh well. I did get to the station and safely dock. I decided to log off for the day and wait until I could clone jump again.
All in all, I had a great time yesterday. Not only that, but I now have a jump clone in Thera, along with a Cheetah, just in case I need to fleet up again. That's right, I somehow never got around to installing a jump clone in Thera before. Now I'm ready for the 500 member celebration. I wonder how we'll top this fleet, though.
