Heading Up-Country

We're off to visit my grandfather and mother up in Sutter today, spending the night in Yuba City and returning tomorrow. And the fact that I needed to stay in a Holiday Inn-chain hotel once more before the end of April in order to collect 4000 bonus Priority Club points might just have influenced our choice of where to stay, just a little bit.

We had a little change of plans this morning after my last post that makes the icon on this message even more appropriate. My mother called just as we were getting ready to leave Fremont to tell me that she was so tired that she could not make the trip down from the hills to meet me at my grandfather's house, and would I mind coming up to her place in Dobbins instead? That was fine with us, so she let my grandfather know that we'd go see him on Sunday on the way back, and we set a course for the Yuba County foothills northeast of Marysville.

Then it was back on the road and down to Yuba City and into the hotel, where we were able to get the computers both hooked up with a minimum of fuss, thanks to the fact that a while back we bought a small five-port hub specifically for use in hotels with single-wired connections like this. It means we can both use the internet without interfering with each other.
