Time Event
End of the Road
On Tuesday, we managed to get away from Fernley just before 4 PM. It was so hot that I burned my hand on the door handles as we finished packing. We made a brief stop in Fallon to grab some very late lunch and decided to keep driving while we ate (Lisa drove for a while, then we traded off) primarily so we could keep the minivan relatively cool, as the blistering sunshine quickly heats it up.

As we headed south, it started to cloud up, which helped with the worst of the sun, although it didn't cool down that much even when it rained intermittently. I'm not complaining about the rain! But I guess I must have called it down on us when I said I did not expect rain on our trip after we loaded the new cart Lisa built earlier this week. We got quite a bit of rain, actually. The lightning show on the drive down was spectacular, particularly a quintuple burst over Hawthorne.

I'm glad the clouds parted long enough last night to see the Venus-Jupiter conjunction.

Current Mood: tired
To San Diego via the Monsoon
I woke up ahead of my alarm on Wednesday morning, and we would have been really out ahead of schedule if I hadn't spent more time that I should reading my e-mail and commenting on web sites. Nevertheless, we got out of the hotel, had breakfast at Jake's in downtown Bishop, and were on the road two hours ahead of my originally planned schedule.

Bishop to San DiegoCollapse )

What I hadn't expected was that it would be raining much of today. I cannot really complain about the monsoonal moisture (any rain at all is welcome), but it means that San Diego is way more humid than we expected, and we are pretty hot and sticky.

Town & Country Hotel ChallengesCollapse )

The cart Lisa built helps enormously (and seems to have held up under the rain better than we feared), but it still takes three loads of cart to move the show gear.

Current Mood: worried
