Heading out



Jojoba....Bye Bye for Awhile

7am - Later this morning, Little Honda will hook-up to Scampy. And, The Team will head out and search for adventure along the roads of California.

Man-O-Man! It is the greatest thing to be an RVer. No sitting around for us. We are out there!

Guess what?
A couple of days ago when we checked into Jojoba, they told us that we moved up one place on the wait list. We are now #15! 😍

1pm - Borrego Springs incident
We were planning to Nite Camp around the Borrego Springs area. However, something happened to our iPhone when it was unplugged from power!

Our iPhone screen went black. We could NOT restart it!

I figured that our iPhone was a goner. And began to shop at a Best Buy in Santee, CA. But Best Buy did not have the one we wanted in stock anywhere in San Diego County.

So, I decided to go to a nearby Cricket store. But when I parked near the Cricket store, I found a iPhone repair shop, and on a whim, went inside.

The guy who waited on me pressed on the restart button and the home button at the same time [Soft restart]. And lo and behold, my iPhone came to life!!

Can you imagine that?


3pm - Our adventure!
We had not planned on our adventure to be an iPhone adventure. But, we will take any adventure that comes our way!

Thinking seriously about being without our iPhone, we are amazed how dependent we have become! Without our iPhone, for directions we were reduced to:

  • Paper map
  • Street signs
  • Shadow of the Sun in lieu of a compass
It's like being pretty much blind!

  1. HEY!!! Where'd you go? Never even got to say so long... (Perhaps because we played for 2 1/2 hours straight without a break...?)

    Anyway, George - great seeing you and safe and fun travels. Thanks for coming and for the video. Thanks for accompanying me on my errands in Temecula...that was a fun day. See you next time!

    1. Hi Pete,

      I was caving in to sleepiness when 8pm rolled around. So, I took off. I guess that your Rock N Roll band was having too much fun to stop playing?

      I have a great time when I visit Jojoba!

      Your friend,
      George

  3. Rebooting your phone like that is a good thing to do, just as it is with other devices. I reboot my 6s a couple times a month.

    1. Hi Bill,

      A soft boot is required when an iPhone CANNOT be started by simply holding down the off/on switch.

      A softboot is done by simultaneously holding down the off/on switch AND the home button until the Apple shows on the screen.

    2. I know. That's what I was talking about.

    3. Hi Bill,

      When I replied to your comment, I did not understand the difference between:
      * Powering iPhone off and restarting
      * Soft restart
      * Hard restart

      I just researched all of that, and now I believe that I got it straight!

      Thank you,
      George
