Turns out, I'm headed to California on Sunday.
Being the only remote member of the development team is not without its frustrations - not being able to go to the lead engineer and sit and talk through a problem is the main one. But it's not entirely without its perks, either.
Sunday morning, I will strap myself into a plane and head down to Mountainview, California, where the rest of my development team is. I'm kinda looking forward to it and I'm kinda not.
On the positive side, I get to meet the rest of the team and Jim Whitelaw informed me the other day that his friend has a sailboat and we're all going sailing on the Sunday.
On the negative side, I don't get to bring my family. Kim's never been alone in the house and I feel like I'm abandoning her to the not-so-tender mercies of the world.
Plus, I'm going to miss my guys.
However, it's for five days and it will be a valuable experience.
California, here I come.
