Just One Last "Last Word" on Abbey

Looking again at the Edward Abbey fansite, I see that they list Abbey's residence as "Fort Llatikcuf.."  That's a joke for dyslexics, oh tee hee. It is also an echo of Dylan Thomas' setting for his imperishable "Under Milk Wood," which takes place in the village of "Llareggub," oh tee hee.  So either Abbey is riffing Thomas or Thomas, Abbey, but since the double-l joke makes a lot more sense with the Welsh connection, I'm begging that priority goes to Thomas.
