Where do I live?

As a longtime resident of the ‘lost’ end of Nevada County with the 639 prefix, there is a constant problem with deliveries and mail, as well as toll charges for me to call my friends and places I do business with in my own county. Am I in Penn Valley, a village five miles away? Or Smartville, a town in another county? I choose to live in the boonies, will do what I can to improve things, but will cherish the days when we could just tell people to turn off 20 at ‘the cow house.’ It took a few years, but we got UPS and FedEx trained.

Now it’s time to work on Pac Bell.
