|One Year Ago,
Saturday - At the beach!
- Since I had a lot of the frozen goods, and the linen, I pretty much
had to head to Cayucos. But errand after errand kept me in town, until
I finally got out about 3:30 or 4:00. No rush, after all. Traffic was
decent, not as bad as I feared. Since the I-5 was necked down to a
single lane northbound, with a one hour delay, I had to take one of the
east-west roads before CA-46. I generally take CA-166, but decided to
take CA-58 instead - it's probably been ten years or more since
traveling that highway, as it's slow, the road and turns just minor
upgrades from, probably, the 1940's.
And it was fun. Long, winding about a lot, with not a few hairpin turns
on both ends, and it still had the two right-angle doglegs in the exact
middle of the Carizzo plain. Still rural and little traveled. By 8:00 I
was arriving in Cayucos.
Thursday 28 June 2012
- Tired. I did a bit of running about, getting things done before
heading off to Cayucos tomorrow or Saturday, but it was hard to move,
let alone get things done.
Wednesday 27 June 2012
Wednesday - OTR. Actually a pretty
long day in Ventura. I wasn't on my way home until about 4:00pm, and
traffic was pretty awful :-(
As you make the transition from Hwy-125 onto the I-5 southbound there
is a largish building across the freeway, with the name "Advanced
Bionics" on it. So, it was probably where Steve Austin had his work
done, back in the day...
26 June 2012
- OTR. Finishing up the underground inspection (again). This last bit was a fairly
short piece in Ventura proper, so afterwards we went back and did some
office work. Or tried to - we were both almost incoherent from
weariness. I've got the schedules finished up for what we've seen so
far, ready to be put onto the draft of the plans, so we'll do a bit of work tomorrow on some items for the
specifications, then I'm out of Ventura, back to Lancaster - and then
off to Cayucos for the week of the Fourth.
I'm beginning to feel a bit tired of driving.
- OTR. More work in the field. Coming back to the office the draftsman had
voluntarily started putting his desk together. It's a huge 3-sided
beast, very nice looking, cherry veneer over particle board. I accused
D of trying to make the new office as dark and tunnel-like as the old
Sunday 24 June 2012
- OTR. The halyards were banging against the mast last night. Unwilling
to unwrap the tarp that I currently have tied over the sail and mast I
just stuck a couple of seat cushions between the halyards and mast. It
worked, but my boat sort of looks like the Beverly hillbillies live
I drew up a little plan of inexpensive improvements to my sister's back
yard and sent it to her the other day. It isn't a fancy layout, but
it'll be better than what's there, and can be improved by her,
bit-by-bit, as time goes by.
