Gerald M. Chicalo


Seeking adventure that no established trail could provide, Gerald turned to off-trail hiking as the means to go where no one has gone before. A veteran of many gruelling and punishing treks, including a risky solo passage of the fabled "Fool's Gold Route", an unmarked wilderness journey that is said to be attempted by few and successfully completed by even fewer, he is no stranger to the virtually impenetrable underbrush of the Pacific Northwest. Ten years spent working in the helicopter timber salvage industry gives Gerald a unique insight that can bring you into the stark reality of the rainforest using words alone. He now lives in the forest on Lasqueti Island, BC, Canada.
