There's No Place Like Home

I'm back. Bet you thought I had disappeared from the universe, huh? Anyhow, I just moved my computer to my new home base in San Diego, so I'm starting my posts from here. Just when I started to get used to cube land, I've discovered that it's time for me to get back onto the playing field with a vengeance. Next week, it's onward to Little Rock. In the mean time, I've got to finish my move. All I've got in my house is a bed and computer. Well, I guess those are the essential things of life.

Return To Active Duty

I spent the last couple of days on the road, and it was good. Although I really don't quite know what I'm doing yet, it was a nice feeling to be a moving target once again. Now, I'm not planning on riding out into the day with guns blazing on some wild adventure. After all, I left that world behind a few weeks ago. I was in Palm Springs a couple of days ago. Well, to be more accurate, I was in La Quinta, CA, at a nice resort. I was working a modified trade show assignment for company management. That was a nice change. Then, I traveled onward to Portland for a quick site visit. It was supposed to last two days, but it turned out to last only a couple of hours. So, I caught an early flight back, and drove down to San Diego to check on the new home, and returned to Los Angeles, where I actually do have a bed to sleep in. Yep, it's been a really busy couple of days for me, and I'm feeling uncustomarily tired. I'll be glad when this move is finally over.

Back In The Saddle Again

I'm back, and there's no stopping me now. I've been learning some new stuff at my new job, and I'm going to be out in the field once again. I'm starting with a quick trip into Portland later next week. Anyhow, I'm going to be flying out of Orange County, since I'm still in the middle of my move. It's weird, but I'm actually looking forward to getting back into the field for a couple of days. The nice part is that, since I have my meetings and office time, I'll not be traveling at an absurd pace again.

I'm hoping to be moved into my new place in San Diego next week some time. Well, at least, I hope to take possession of my new place next week, even though I'll be in Portland. I've got a busy week ahead, just like this one that just ended. I've been in meetings all week, and after that, I've been stuck in traffic for the last few hours. I just got back into Los Angeles after a long journey home. I haven't been this happy in quite a while. I should have done this a long time ago.

Boycott Continental! Really! No joke! I'm serious.

The Road Home

It's been a great first week at the new job, and I'm adjusting to life on the ground -- temporarily. One of the other people in the office is going to do some field stuff for me, while I do a couple of office projects to get oriented to the company. I'll be back in the saddle again in a couple of weeks, and likely very busy in the field from that point. I'm moving in a couple of weeks, also. The timing coincides perfectly -- I'll get a new home, and that's when I start the endless journey, once again. Until then, I'm doing the prairie dog imitation in cubeland in the office. I got a cool new laptop, and some other neat stuff, so life is good. You know, it's been a week, and I somehow don't seem to miss the cavity searches. Maybe I am normal, after all. Well, that may be taking it a bit too far. Travel safe, everyone, and I'll see you at 39,000 feet really soon.
