“Having no driver’s license, Pynchon traveled from Mexico (with a stop of unknown duration in Los Angeles or thereabouts) by bus.  He arrived at the Western Greyhound Station in Pacific Grove, a few miles outside of Carmel, in the third week of August [1963].  Mimi and Richard had arranged for him to stay in a guest cottage that one of their friends, Colleen Creedon, had behind her house in the Carmel Highlands.  Pynchon and Fariña spent a couple of afternoons catching up, drinking, trading thoughts on books they had read (both liked Oakley Hall’s literary Western Warlock), and discussing Farina’s novel.”  (pages 178-179)
