Across the Southwest in a week

Less than a week really. Spent two days in Berkeley, the first recovering from an overnight flight and the second enjoying barbecue with my brother, his wife, their son Rohan (unreasonably cute), and a dozen or so of their friends.


Sunday took us south to Bakersfield, then across the Mojave Wasteland, and all the way to Mesquite,  NV, to stay at a sad little casino with an unreasonably good breakfast buffet.

On Monday, we took a shortcut through Zion (not really that short but oy, don't pass up a chance to visit Zion!) And on to Bryce Canyon, which was pretty good for a visit with Dad - no real hiking involved, just a lot of spectacular overlooks. More hoodoos than you can shake a stick at, and some recent fire scars. We then backtracked a little and pushed on through south Utah and down to Flagstaff late at night.

We took I-40 back from the Grand Canyon last time, so this time we cut south of that on Tuesday. We ran across (actually through) the radio telescope Very Large Array there and fetched up in Roswell for the evening, where we remained thankfully un-probed.

Wednesday took us down US 380 to Sweetwater and then along I-20 into Dallas, at times only a hair ahead of a storm with golf ball sized hail. Did Not Want!

I'm now perched downstairs at the Westin, next door to our relocated office, escaping Dad as he makes noises like a downshifting lumber mill during an earthquake. (Yes, Dad, you should use your CPAP!) We'll get him dropped off at the Greyhound terminal and then I'll work on my outstanding problem - I still don't have a home!

1 Welcome back, Av! 

You need to update your WT friends list, if you haven't already... apparently this last patch broke it.  Basically you need to delete everybody from it, then re-enter them.  Maybe we can finally squad up or something!

2 The PC is still in its shipping crates at the office - I'll get it unpacked as soon as I have a place to unpack it. Found some likely candidates today, so with luck that's this weekend.

Company putting you up in the hotel until then, or is it on your own dime?  Either way, a day or two to find a place is pretty good!

4 Compared to what I had in Hawaii, EVERY place is reasonably priced, well appointed, and cavernous in size.

5 You could say they're all Texas-sized in comparison, although you probably wouldn't.

6 Are you OK? Did the floods get to you at all?

7 Yeah, all's well, high and dry. Just been distracted/busy. I'll get a post up pretty soon.

11 In medical terms, "PO" is an abbreviation that stands for "per os," which is Latin for "by mouth." It is commonly used to indicate the route of administration for medications or treatments. When a medication or treatment is prescribed with the instruction "PO," it means that it should be taken orally, typically by swallowing it with water or another suitable liquid. This route allows the medication to be absorbed through the digestive system and enter the bloodstream. It is important to follow the specific instructions provided by healthcare professionals regarding the administration of medications, including whether they should be taken "PO" or by an alternative route. So, to answer the question, "What does PO mean in medical terms?" it refers to the administration of a medication or treatment by mouth, emphasizing the importance of following prescribed guidelines for safe and effective use.

15 Doing demo work in a flooded house is not high on my list of pleasant experiences to be recommended to friends. Live on the high ground, folks.
