Travels With Zelda is not so much a travelogue as it is an adventurelogue.

Oh, sure, Zelda and I are in Mexico, traveling, but as an informative source, it severely lacks. There is little historical information. There is no information on train schedules, car rental rates, best places to eat for under $50, which restaurantes take American Express.

There is no Kohlsaat four-stars hotel rating system. Any information is apt to be grossly practical: how to catch your supper, what dirt roads to avoid, desert survival tips, how to avoid getting thrown in jail, how to get out of jail, techniques of evading moray eels, best ways to exit the water without being turned into hamburger. Readers will meet characters, oddballs, goofs, and people with stories to tell. If I am successful in my writings, the reader will hopefully feel a sense of freedom, share the intrigue of what lies around the corner, and perhaps see how one can flee the demands the Modern World would like to place upon us all.

I would like to thank: Rob Levine of Grip Software, whom without, none of this would be remotely possible, Reid Johnson, Jody Cox, Dave Ayers, Fredrick Hartray, Gary and Dianna Busk, Sally Daniels, Jim Wolcott, Jerry Hale, Dale Kovar, Denny Newman, Emery Jeffreys, Duane Madison, and Colleen Clark.

Travels with Zelda, OutWest '97
Kent is about fame, one of the most obvious goals society celebrates. Kent has achieved this benchmark by being the lead character in a marginally successful cartoon strip. This has allowed him an amount of marginal fame, just enough to be silly, like so many others.

If you want to find some snow...
Macho, macho man

Nothing fancy
Just boppin' around the Baja

On the road to Cabo: Bahia Concepcion
Hanging out at the Iguana
The cow on the road - was it an omen?
Love too much, care too much, hurt too deep
As you can see, any guy can get a girl if he's got a Harley
There are those who fish...and then there are guys who FISH. Paco is one of the latter.
Prez Ja - the sweetest 14-foot aluminum boat that has ever been dragged across the sand
Even though Terry caught the fish, I was proud to be photographed with it.  With another two months having Prez Ja, I hope the next photo of me with a marlin is a marlin I caught.
My new office
Old timers: They sure do know how to fish! The van in typical camping mode, this time at the beach at Los Frailes

What was once a very utilitarian nine-foot shore casting rod was now a pathetic, unaesthetic stick
Howie and Zelda on the briny for a day of not catching fish
The Baja is a mecca for all cow-obsessed dogs
Unnatural elements were still coursing through his system. Rocks, he told me, were all looking like shark teeth
It was Marcos' fish, to bring in or lose.  I would content myself to sitting in the bow, smoking a cigar, a witness to the theater
For four years Bobby has been trying to get me to rent one of his pangas, telling me, You will catch fish
