Day 8 - Saturday(7/8) - La Jolla, San Diego to Riverside, CA

Update: I am alive and well and resting peacefully in Riverside, CA.

Starting Odometer: 42,245
Ending Odometer: 42,424
Miles driven today: 179 miles

So, I woke up this morning and drove around a bit. The first thing I wanted to find was where we used to watch the seals or sea lions or whatever they are at La Jolla, so I drove down and found the cliffs about them and got some photos with the 400 mm lens.

Then, I decided I wanted to find where I used to work, at PetCo's corporate headquarters. It's moved, of course. So, it took me a while to chase it down, mainly because I was looking for it east of the I-5, when actually, it's east of the 805. I was kind of curious why I couldn't find Miramar Air Force base. Finally, I realized it was east of the 805, and I drove right to it. Basically, the whole place is shuttered and closed.

But this is kind of cathartic for me...to go back and find where I used to work, used to live, used to play, etc.

Then, I decided to bolt for Riverside, and figure out where I'm supposed to be in the morning. I found the location, and I rented a room about 5 miles away. So, worst case scenario, I'll have to lane-split for 5 miles tomorrow. Pray for me.
