New Digs

Part of the reason for not posting as much to this blog recently is because we just moved the office.


Double Ugh!

Remind me not to do this again in the next 10 years.

On Friday the 28th of June, the movers came and did the "heavy" stuff.

We're still sorting and putting things away, but we are here now.

We are on the second floor
Just east of the main downtown area is an older warehouse district where many of the buildings have been converted to offices, restaurants, bars, condos and other uses. It's been pretty successful and this part of town has become much more dynamic than the core downtown area.

This is my first day to ride to the new location.

Jack Riepe would like it here. This shop is on the first floor of our new building.
Airbus has a rather large engineering facility in the area. Sort of remarkable because Boeing was such a fixture in this community for so many years. They are phasing out and moving people to Oklahoma City and San Antonio. Lots of people don't want to go, so some of the employees have latched on to Airbus here.

There's even some archways over some of the streets

But when it comes to parking there are some options. There's an outdoor lot dedicated for motorcycles near the front of the Airbus building. It usually has 4-5 cycles parked there. But a block away is a parking garage, also with dedicated motorcycle parking. I opted for that spot. 

Indoor motorcycle parking. Max was a little lonely first thing in the morning


There didn't seem to be many people, first thing in the morning,  parking their motorcycles indoors and then walking a way to their offices, but later that day........

But later in the day Max wasn't lonely at all.
Only problem with this spot is that there are pigeon roosts in the ceiling.
Might have to watch out for that.

 And finally a view inside.

And finally from inside my new office.


Ride On, and Carpe Diem, My Friends


  1. Jimbo/cpa3485:

    Nice office. Looks cosy. You have such a mean boss for making you do all your own moving.

    you just need a wall plaque for your parking spot

  2. I used to work in a similar part of town with great places to eat, nightlife, etc. I actually looked forward to going to work in that part of town.

  3. Robert, We've only been here about a week, but loving it already. We can walk to lunch as opposed to getting in the car and driving. The views are better, there are more people, lots to enjoy.

  4. It looks like a nice area for an office and covered parking as well. Bonus points for that!

    In my 31 years at the university, I'm on office #16 so things could be worse...

  5. Congrats on the move. Everything looks lovely, especially the indoor, dedicated parking!
