Get outside of the big cities and people are folksy and down to earth.
No doubt about it, folks in the far North-State are down to earth and classy.

Sign in a small cafe in the middle of nowhere, that's been there for years, and has a two pump station, that does a good business:

"Eat here, and get gas".

Ukiah is beautiful, however, unless they've been hit recently with the foreclosure house value droppage, real estate is expensive. My aunt and uncle lived there for 15 years before moving to Whidbey Island, WA. They made a killing on the house they had in Ukiah.

I remember my uncle talking about crime on the reservation due to 'fighting' over the proceeds of gambling. Many of the smaller tribes in CA have built casinos so people can get their gambling fix without driving to Reno or flying to Las Vegas.

I consider the weather fine to chilly, but then I grew up in AZ :-)
