Day three was fantastic; we got a nice taste of what San Diego has to offer. We are mostly settled into our temporary home for the ~1 week in San Diego. We also had a great pleasure today of meeting up with some old friends of mine. They had never met my wife or son, and I’d never met their 2 kids. We joined them at La Jolla, where we enjoyed checking out the tide pools and also got some “beach” time in. We had lunch at “The Taco Stand,” which was quite good to top it off. We managed to catch all 4 goals of the Germany vs. Ghana FIFA match too. Our timing was perfect. Good news for team USA! Reconnecting with old friends is also a joy. It’s neat how many memories start coming back when you spend a little time with them. We were reminiscing about trips to the desert, 90’s hairstyles, and how different things were around here back then. It’s also great to compare notes with other parents to get ideas, share, and learn.
I also finally got the satellite TV issues sorted out. After several chat sessions, changing dip switch settings on our dish, and numerous other things, I found an article that showed how to reset the satellite info, boom thanks, Dr. Google. World Cup will be watched live tomorrow. I am also gearing up for the work week, so the workspace here in the RV needs to be better optimized, and I need to prep for some face to face meetings with customers. I also fixed our Sleep Number bed; evidently, when it was installed, the hoses were routed the wrong way, and the mechanism that lowers and raises the bed crushed the tubing placing a small hole in it. Of course, that results in the air leaking out, and without air, you pretty much have a board, not a mattress.
Some key take highlights from today:
- Look up and meet old friends, you will be so glad you did it.
- When you have a lot to get done, stay calm, you can eventually get to it all.
- Carne Asada Fries are kind of like California burritos without the tortilla.
- Don’t bother calling Dish for support. Google the issues and figure it out yourself.
- Sometimes it’s easier to fix something yourself than take it to a dealership or wait for a technician to arrive, especially if it’s attached to an RV.
While reading this, I am probably buying a fishing license online or taking a small person who is angling to catch some fish. Or if you’re reading this between 3 and 5 PM Pacific Time on Sunday, June 22nd, what the heck are you doing? Watch the US v Portugal World cup match. 🙂
