About Paul Gerald
Paul Gerald's writing career began in the sports department of the much-missed
Dallas Times Herald
. He later worked for the
Memphis Commercial Appeal
before setting out as a freelancer. Since then, he has written some 300 travel articles for the
, and along the way his work has also appeared in Northwest Airlines'
, Nike. com,
Weissmann Travel Reports
, and numerous newspapers around the country. He's also worked in and around landscaping, restaurants, public relations, social work, an amusement park, Alaskan fishing boats, the YMCA, corporate marketing, and most recently as a package handler for FedEx. Such is the life of a writer who really, really wants to avoid having a regular job. His hiking life started at age 12, when he went to a summer camp in the Absoraka Mountains of Wyoming. He became a trail and road hound at that point, and his hometown of Memphis never looked the same. He's hiked extensively in the Rocky Mountains from New Mexico to Montana, as well as Appalachia, Alaska, Nepal, and Argentina. In 1996 he moved to Portland to be close to the ocean, the mountains, and the big trees. He has greatly enjoyed meeting people using his books out on the trails; he's also grateful that none of them appeared to be lost or angry. He does hope, however, that any feedback will be directed to him, care of the publisher, or at www.paulgerald.com. And he hopes people will continue to enjoy and benefit from the fruits of his labor.
