Piece of cake. I wouldn't have thought twice about it, but early in the week I had already agreed to drive down to San Diego on Saturday to do the SNG work for a sports shoot.
Hmm, shouldn't be much of a problem. I could simply stay overnight and kill both birds with one per-diem expensed hotel stay.
What? In these tough economic times? beFrank, are you crazy?
Yeah, the overnight stay didn't happen. I'd have to give up one of the shoots if I felt like driving back and forth over two days was too much to handle.
Too much to handle?
Naw. I drove down on Friday to Otay and worked to put Stacey Butler on TV. She and her photographer had the tougher job. They'd begun the day at 4:30am and were crashing two packages. One was on the Swine Flu and the other was on the Mexico Drug War.
I decided to keep both assignments (because I'm greedy) and I'd just make the drive both days.
I could see the parking structure for the Tijuana Airport from the Naval Training Facility where we'd set up for the live shots.
Inside the Facility it looked a lot like the Fantasy Factory on steroids, but without the Olly eye candy.
On the other hand, the Navy had bigger guns.
