My first trip to California while working for Northrop Grumman Electronic Systems.

I joined the company on a Monday and was in California on Wednesday.  Before I
joined the company, I spoke with Fred over the phone and told him I was considering
taking the job, but would have to travel quite a bit to California.  Fred asked me where
I would be located and I told him that the job was in Redondo Beach, which is essentially South West Los Angeles.  He then explained that it was where he lived.  The coincidence is what made the job a lot of fun.
