Ken Kesey, the author of One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest (pages of which were written all over the restroom wall of his La Honda residence) and other books, owned a home in La Honda, which served as the base of operations for The Merry Pranksters where they used LSD and other drugs.[4] The escapades of Kesey and the Merry Pranksters are documented in Tom Wolfe’s The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test, which describes the wildly painted school bus, ‘Further’[5], driven by Neal Cassady, who had been the hyperkinetic driver in Jack Kerouac‘s On the Road.
