Looking at the wreckage of the garage and piles of rocks that mark the path of the slides, Murphy said, "I have to start all over again. The only difference this time is that I know more than I did ^en I was bom." One of his big yellow tow tru(5ks escaped the devastation and another that was caught has been fixed up. Slowly he's {getting ready for the summer 'when business along the coast is at its peak, when most of the annual 10 million cars fnake the run along the two-lane highway. Like some others who lost everything, the Murphy family moved Into the Big Sur Lodge where the owner offered free accommodations for as long as they need it. Neighbor George Malone, a restaurant and cabin owner, has given temporary premises for Murphy to operate his garage business.
