Coast of Gualala, California — about three hours north of San Francisco, an hour south of Medicoino. Thanksgiving is happening at a home in Sea Ranch, just south of here.

San Francisco’s Boyd Hotel is basically a flophouse for bums.

I can’t remember the last time I saw a red sign that said “5 & 10.”

The AT&T air in Gualala/Sea Ranch doesn’t exist.

Trinks Cafe, one of the only friendly places in Gualala that offers wifi to average Joes.
