I am taking a train to Nevada City on Friday morning. I have never been there before. All I know is what people have told me, which is that it is beautiful and “the swimming is good” on account of the Yuba River. I sure am going to do that! The train ride is about three hours . . . I know because I once took the same train to Grass Valley to trim big beautiful marijuana crops in a miserable desolate rattlesnake-filled field there. (I lasted three days and never did a single day’s work for sad and boring reasons I won’t get into right now~~) And what will I do on the train? I will do what I always do, which is to go to the observation car and read. Yeah!!
ANYWAY: Yes, so, I’m going. I’ll take a bunch of pictures. Lord! Maybe it’ll be cool. I have wanted to go swimming for so long, and it will be hot enough to do that without freezing to death, so at the very least I guess there’s that. . . .
