Hello again, California

It probably comes as no surprise that I’m back in California again… this time to close down Tempo Storm’s Redondo Beach team house. That house is the one for the PUBG team that I set up last year, and now that the National PUBG League is dissolving, we no longer have a need for that house.

Ever since Tempo’s recent staffing changes and undertaking of new projects, I’ve been pretty overwhelmed with work, so I contracted one of my friends to help me out with some of the tougher labor. If you’re a long-time follower of my blog, you may recognize him—it’s Ed Lam, known online as Grainyrice.

We both flew into Los Angeles because my truck is in the shop for, yet again, another transmission repair. Ed’s flight was scheduled to land at about 2:30 PM PST, while mine was scheduled to land at 2:51 PM PST. I told Ed to deplane and wait for me so we could take a shuttle together to Enterprise Rent-a-Car. Naturally, I beat him to Los Angeles, and I was the one who ended up having to wait for him.

Thus ensued the immediate difficult work of trying to clear out the disastrous mess that was what the players left behind in the Redondo Beach team house, as well as driving all over Southern California from Beach Cities to Beverly Hills to Hollywood to transport valuables from the team house to our other properties.

On our way back from Los Angeles to Beach Cities, Ed and I stopped by the Santa Monica Pier. I had visited the Santa Monica Pier once before during the night with Jordan Kelly and Jordan King, but this was my first time seeing it during the day.

The deadline for complete shut-down completion is January 28, 2020, and we’re just now starting.

… It’s going to be a long two weeks.
