Hutton Orbital Radio presents '2HOT2MESSY' THIS WEEK | August 4th!

The Hutton Orbital Truckers are finding themselves, yet again, in a 'Hot Mess' following a huge celebration of efforts in their previous endeavors, whereby there was one mission set to rule all missions - Deliver one Hutton Mug to every single station.

The original MESS took 90 days to deliver mugs to 50,000 stations. Now there are over 130,000 commodity markets. The Galaxy's biggest Trucking effort needs YOU and your squadrons. Can this feat be achieved in time for Christmas?

For your efforts, Hutton Orbital Radio will be giving away one official, literal Hutton Mug a week from August the 4th until this mission is complete.
For all information on how to get involved, head to this post on the official Elite Dangerous Forums.


Once again, Commanders, thank you so much for sharing such wonderful memories with us over the past week and we're really looking forward to the week ahead with you all.

Fly safe.

See you in the black o7
