Me = Idiot

A quiet day at work so I thought I would log on and work on my level three missions.

I completed one and thought I would do a second. Yeah, yeah, click accept, yeah, yeah Passari system, got it, let's go, let's go.

I warp to the gate and the system name sounded familiar. Check out the mission details after hitting jump and as the system changes I see this "WARNING Auto pilot route will take you through low sec!"

Right. Passari. The low sec system next door to Lituria. Ah crap.

As the grid loads I see a gate camp and I know my mission running Cerberus is dead meat even ignoring the fact that two Heavy Interdictors are in the camp along with a Rokh and a Megathron. And they are all flashy red.

It took a little while as my tank held up nicely, but the outcome was never in doubt, especially as the Phobos bumped my webbed ship away from the gate just to make sure I wasn't going anywhere. Estimated total loss of 94 million plus the cost of replacing my +4 implants which will cost another 50-70 million. Fortunately, the implants can wait as they are only needed to calculate training time when you start training, and I have another 20 days of Large Hybrid V to go.

As a side note, when I got podded I appeared deep in 0.0 space at a station that is the base for Sylph Alliance because I never changed my medical station. I had to pod-jump back to Nonni.
