Lost in the Desert

After a day and a half in the desert I've already lost track of time, it's going to be a long month. Add to that my general lack of direction around here, assume that if this blog doesn't get updated I'm lost crawling through the desert looking for water.

Our flight down was non-eventful. Angie was the next to last person on the flight to show at the boarding gate and she blamed her tardiness on the fifth member of our traveling group, Jaxen, apparently he was playing in the nursery. Likely excuse, but since she didn't actually hold up the plane I'll let it slide. With Jaxen there were 3 children on the plane, which is still 1 fewer than the number of dogs on the plane. One of which resided under the seat next to me, awesome.

It wasn't the greatest day to travel for me. How can you expect me to be away from internet access on NHL trade deadline day? Next to Hockey Day in Michigan it's my 2nd favorite day of the year! My number 1 priority upon arrival was to get to the condo and get internet access. But Jimmy ruined it all. Literally, less than a minute after the pilot cleared us to turn on our phones in Phoenix I got a text from Jimmy saying Todd Bertuzzi was a Red Wing. So much for the anticipation of getting to the condo. Thanks, alot!

We didn't even make it to the condo before our first trip to In 'n Out. Angie was hungry and I'm certainly not arguing with Angie let alone with child. It was the first of what I'm sure will be many trips in the next 5 weeks.

Finally got to see the Peoria Sports Complex today. After all the years of seeing the spring training video it's interesting to see how things are really laid out in person. The highlight of the day was doing my Rider impression setting up 2 editing stations, the only difference is ours work.

That's it for now, gotta run to a production meeting for the first show, good times. Hopefully I'll be update regularly and even post photos!
