At 04:12 Eve standard the war between the Goonswarm Federation and Mabrick Mining and Manufacturing began. A few minutes later I undocked from my current location in PT-1098 for a reconnoiter. There was no sign of the Goons in system. Local was quite with no red squares anywhere.
I expect this will be the best day of the war. I am prepared. I spent the time up to the start of hostilities purchasing replacement implants. I will make further reports as events unfold.
