SCOTOMAVILLE 02.05 Irvine Preparation

Welcome back to SCOTOMAVILLE

What do you see? Look hard. Let me zoom in a little. Look hard. What do you see? Look even harder. I don't think this was here yesterday. Oh, the quarter yeah okay that's cool. No, this stuff - the green. Hmmm. PREPARATION

That might have been there for a long time. But that green stuff? That green that just showed up since the rain. Again what do you see?

Days and days and days of planning - preparing and hoping and working hard. You see me packing despite an Airstream. You see RV parts that were ordered in advance of something showing up.
