We drove up to Santa Barbara for a long weekend not quite knowing what to expect. Santa Barbara turned out to be the California that I was expecting to find in Orange Country. Laid back and easy going.
We set off without any idea what we were going to do and had a very nice trip. Santa Barbara had lots of nice restaurants, a pretty decent mission and a beatiful courthouse.
This was a business trip right before a long weekend. Cassandra came along. The business trip was horrible. The customer decided to return our equipment after using it to bridge a gap in coverage at their site. I stuck around for a while to try to save the deal, but it was pretty obvious the customer had no intention of keeping the equipment. The sales contract was full of holes and was obviously made at a time when sales numbers today mattered more than anything.
