Vacation

Wow!  I know it’s been a while since I’ve posted.  I’m sorry about that.  We spent a week with some friends at their parents’ house down in San Felipe, Mexico.  It was a difficult week.  I was there to work (yes it’s true).  Our goal was to share the incoming satellite internet connection between two houses that were about 500 feet apart.

So we drove down there and had to wait a couple of days for the satellite connection to be installed.  We were actually a little south of San Felipe in a little campo.  If you’re not sure where San Felipe is, think about the east side of the Baja peninsula.  We were right up against the Sea of Cortez (that’s what it’s called in Mexico, and is much prettier than “the Gulf of California”) and were a full 100 yards from the beach.  That’s right; we had to walk all the way there if someone else was using the 4×4.  Cameron was with us, so we had to take naps when he did…  right there on the hammocks on the deck.  The waiting was tough!

The satellite was finally installed at which point my good friend Rusty took on the task of sharing the wireless network.  He’s very technically savy, so I did almost nothing while he took the reigns and ran with the project.

After he had it all set up and we tested it, then we had to wait another couple of days before we could go home.  It was really difficult…

And did I mention that Rusty’s father-in-law is a gourmet cook?  Yeah, so we were forced to taste all of his cooking too…  It’s a tough life!
