I just got a call from Jay, one of my clients, that we built a rapid deployable emercency communications system for. It looks like there is a 90% probability of being called out to deployment within the next few days. If we are deployed, it means I get to pack my bags and head to Wyoming. So right now I’m scrambling to make sure everything is all set with the system so we can get out there and it works.
I’m excited about this, I had a blast last summer when we deployed the system at the Alpine Lake fire, so I’m looking forward to this now. The only downfall is that my friend Will is getting married the 24th of June, and I wanted to go to his wedding. It also means that I’ll be away from Melanie and my son for a while.
On my to-do list.
- Complete the startup page for the system’s intranet
- Make sure all components in the system are functional
- Do laundry, pack a suitcase
- Reconcile my bank statements and get as caught up in my billing as possible
- Quick test my remote access capabilities to the office, so I can still get work done on the road. (Remote desktop is going to be a pain through the satellite)
- Pick up another TV series on DVD to watch
Well, back to work!
