Went on a joy ride with Neal Cassady driving Ann Murphy’s 52 Pontiac across Golden Gate Bridge to Sausalito, pedal-to-metal, broadsliding into the gravel lot in front of The Ark, right up to the door, where Neal leaps out, enters the Ark, leaving me stranded without even $1.50 admission in my pocket. Eventually hitched a ride back to Haight and Stanyan. One of the last times I saw Cassady but not the first time he ditched his less interesting amigos. 50th anniversary memoir continues.
