Tonight the fort was bombarded by an intense barrage of hurricane force winds, which knocked down trees all throughout the neighborhood. Bushido came back for the first time in many years, and Bendy was back to visit for the first time this year from the faraway Portland System. Wombat finally broke Vertigo in half on the way to Davis and had to walk back to the fort to swap out for Annihilation, and Sidekick got sick and had to burn up early. We went swimming in our favorite heavy nebula, taking special care to avoid detection, as Skunk's spidey senses were tingling on high alert. Several pilots shed spacesuits and took advantage of the resurgence of warm atmospheric conditions to take a dip in the temperate nebula. On the way back, Bushido took a hard turn on Summer in the Powderhouse black hole and tweaked his knee badly enough that he had to bail when we got back to fort airspace. Cortana happened to be riding by while we were stopped for Bushido to heal, and she joined us for the remainder of the mission. As the radiation picked up again, we headed over to the Lechmere Canal Park, where Zenith was knighted by Dogi after distributing small pieces of her art via a mystery grab bag. As we headed out, Buntjigger bailed to get a head start on the long ride back to the JP System, while the remaining pilots followed a winding route back to base.
