See Fewer People. Take Fewer Showers

Florence, Oregon. We went there yesterday. About 75 minutes away, much of it a lovely drive over the coastal range. Lotsa old people, refugees from urban areas. The thrift stores have an immense assortment of canes, wheelchairs, walkers… The real estate is surprisingly affordable. …No trash, no homeless observed. …No, we’re not moving there.
