With comfortable urban lives in Houston, Texas, and career and life goals mostly accomplished, Gail D. Storey and her
husband were in their fifties when they decided it was time to test themselves on a new path a 2,663-mile path known as
the Pacific Crest Trail, which stretches from Mexico to Canada.
"I Promise Not to Suffer" is Gail's light-hearted yet heart-felt memoir about her and her husband's adventures and
misadventures, deepening marriage, and reflections on being irrevocably changed by life on the trail. She was a novice
hiker, while he was an experienced outdoorsman. Humorous yet honest, this journey of harrowing hilarity and reluctant revelations will be loved by active hikers (appendices
include details of their unique ultralight gear and other essential how-to information), fans of female adventure stories,
and armchair travelers alike.
