So, maybe my personal goal is to experience One Million Unique Life Experiences that have enough stick-um to complete my final portrait once my human container is reduced to dust. Long time fan of Jon Krakauer's writings, I had a man-crush on him when he first published his teaser story of Into The Wild in Outside Magazine (is that rag still around?) and ultimately published it in a book. I was so bummed when I missed his book signing in Salt Lake City in the mid-1990's. THEN, when the movie came out and Eddie Vedder dropped the soundtrack, the scene that revealed the magic of Slab City blew my mind. Hollywood at it's best, I knew I would have to visit someday.
Christmas Eve, I tried, and got rained out and it was the roadtrip from hell. But, like dog with a chew toy, I rarely give up. On this additional new experience of doing dental work in Mexico, the time was right to make my trip Slab City from Yuma, Arizona as I wait for my final crowns to be ready.
