Karl Samson, who now lives in Oregon, first started backpacking at age 12, canoeing at 14, surfing at 15, sailboarding at 24, and snowboarding at age 34 (you can teach an old dog new tricks). He got his start in travel-book writing more than a decade ago when he wrote about Nepal for a guidebook to India and Nepal. Since then he has authored Frommer's Nepal and numerous other guidebooks and travel articles that have taken him all over the world. Being chased by a sea snake in the Andaman Sea, struck at by a fer-de-lance in Costa Rica, stalking stinking corpse lilies in Sumatra, riding a camel across India's Thar Desert, and being eyeballed by sharks in Belize are past adventures that sometimes make Northwest outings seem tame by comparison. However, it is still the Northwest, his own backyard, that he finds offers the greatest variety of adventures in the smallest space.
