Kobae to San Diego

I took Kobae back to San Diego Saturday. I didn't want to. The weather is still nice every day and the forecast for the next two weeks is 60 plus. Rachel watched the place for me and her window for me to get there and back was limited so I had to go when I could.
I took Jax with me, forgot to take a collar and leash because out here he never wears one. So bought one there, hooked him up and on our Sunday hike it was much easier to control Kobae. Every time he'd start some trouble I would just run Jax in front of him and he'd take off after Jax. Eventually I took Jax off leash and collar as he was pretty responsive to my call and cooperative in controlling Kobae. On our Monday hike it backfired. Kobae lost interest in Jax and Jax was way more independent so I had twice the trouble I would have normally had. I didn't take any pictures (almost) because I was so busy trying to keep them both under control. The picture I wish I would have gotten though was a house was being torn inside out because of mold. There were about ten guys around with those space suits on and when they all came out of the house to see Kobae it looked just like the scene in ET where all the space people are trying to keep ET alive. Man it was funny and Kobae does look a little like ET.

Kobae was good on the way to San Diego. Had to have a guest help me put him in the truck but when I got to San Diego I put some suitcases down and made him a step ladder from the truck and he got out on his own at midnight and went into the garage. Fourteen hours in the truck and he didn't leave me any presents in the back seat but man he unloaded when he got in the garage. Jax spent almost 30 hours out of 80 in the truck and he was a great travel companion.

When I listed Last Hurrah and Base Camp on the booking sites three months or so ago Home Away changed my narrative about the properties. I called them to give them grief and they said they didn't have any choice. They have to translate my narrative into 55 languages for all their web sites and some of the words I use don't exist in most of those languages. I said "Give me an example." They said "Critter". So the one picture I did take while I was out hiking Kobae and Jax, well how do they explain this then?

On Sunday night I went to the Socker's game and they won, as they usually do but it was a very close game. Saw a lot of old friends.

On Tuesday I drove straight through to get back. There were quite a few people staying here and I felt bad leaving Rachel alone for all of them. On Wednesday she headed home and I got unpacked and a bunch of stuff done in time to see this Wednesday evening.
