'ello matey! When are you going to continue your story out in space?
I miss the story telling part of the Shed. I keep telling myself to start another adventure, but then I get distracted or I am not inspired enough.
All is well. I think I posted this pic before, Wal's effort to help us move on.
It's a matter learning to pilot the thing and Wal said something about inputting 'coordinates?'. Which is a 4 syllable word. (bit beyond me)
Clifford is not to keen to go soon, wants to wait to harvest the next crop of mushrooms and the flamin faerie just sits about whining about getting
back to where ever he came from.
I'd made myself quite comfortable here with my own little room and cot however Wal insists going Earth bound and I'm with him on that. Checked the
interior of his 'effort' Quite cozy. Plenty of room. It's bigger than the pic depicts. (Pic depicts?)
The 'drive' (workings) is good and Wal has just installed the control column (without a Chevy gear shift). This troubled him for a while. I asked
him where the 'dunny' (toilet) was and he showed me an alcove up at the rear of the effort. I was just making sure because on all science fiction
movies and shows you never see a dunny depicted or anyone excusing themselves to go. Like, "Yeah, sorry Darth, just gotta go to the dunny. Back
soon. Hold off destroying the planet. Can I borrow your light sabre catalog for a bit of reading?".
The crew quarters are small but come with a smokers dome next to the bar. Least ways the bar impressed Clifford and he's already stocked it with
remnants of the grog shop sent through the portal.
Now I know why Wal sat outside for lengthy times looking in awe at Jupiter. In his head he has worked out that the alcohol, mushy fuel mixture will
get us aloft and direct us to Jupiter where upon we'll pass close by and this will initiate a gravity slingshot back towards the sun where he hopes to
pick up Earth. "Bit of a ride" he reckons. To speed up the process for the return journey he salvaged what he has described as a 'gravity resonator'
from some junked craft. "Yeah, roight, what does that do Wal?" Apparently you point it to the point of where you want to travel, in this case the
sun, then switch it off when you reach an optimum speed. Turn the 'effort' (ship) into reverse, switch it back on aiming at another source of gravity
to slow down. I trust him, but the sun? The flamin sun??? He reckons "all's cool". Noice reply.
So, at this point there we are. Wal says we''ll be ready to leave after the next orbit when we'll be closest to Jupiter. That's not too far away.
Sorry about the lengthy reply but that's where we're at. Personally, I'd like to see that mirror appear here to step through and go back to the old
My kind regards,
