Of course, this wouldn't be a quest-a-thon without the quests, and this one took place in the ghost town of Miranda, following with a stop in Motherlode Mine. That's right, Pirates - I'm off to Mooshu! With thanks once again to Jack Teach (now featuring his screenshot-taking skills, or perhaps his more receptive computer), I've conquered Cool Ranch!
The day started the day before. I was questing at top-speed due to no ship or collecting quests. In a flash, I was running alongside El Toro and Mustang Sally towards the last NPC, who suggested that I take a stop in Miranda. The next morning, knowing that Miranda was a long dungeon, I stocked up on supplies so I could be ready for several things, when in truth, I didn't even use a Yum bottle!
At that point, while I was promoting companions, Jack Teach got online, and I asked if he was up for a Miranda and Motherlode run that night. He accepted and I got offline shortly after for lunch and tennis matches. (I'll let you know that I lost, but every point went into tiebreaker, or deuce.) When I was fresh for the evening with a can of sweet tea
I must both congratulate KI and send a wand strike at them for Miranda's atmosphere. It scared me, which was probably intended, but with giant snakes and drowned zombies. I mean, I could write up an entire post asking for the darned zombies to be recalled and replaced. However, the battles were relatively quick for the number of enemies. I did a lot of running for items and NPCs and Jack battled around until a fight came up. I ended up finding routes around the main group of enemies, and they worked sufficiently even though they annoyed me with their dead ends.

When I touched down in SI, I leveled Sarah Steele and started her last promotion quest. I'm getting close to finished with it after a few wharf rat battles. Where I left off was the quest to go to Mooshu for both the storyline and for Sarah. I'd call it an evening well-spent. Thanks, Jack!
