VIA Contributors

Behind every VIA article there's an intrepid reporter risking sunburn on an exotic Tahitian cruise, indigestion on San Francisco's best food tours, and over-exfoliation in the West Coast's most relaxing spas. These are the men and women who lived to tell the tale.

Sheila De La Rosa

Sheila De La Rosa is a writer, editor, and weird-ologist who has lived in Portland, Ore., for the last 10 years. She is the editor of Oregon Home magazine, the writer behind the "Weird Yet True" column in Disney Adventures magazine, and the author of three books for kids (Ghost Files: Creepy But True?, The Encyclopedia of Weird, and Disney Adventures Weird Yet True World Records). She'd love to write a book that would combine her interests in all things domestic and the offbeat, but doesn't know if a market exists for Weird Yet True Remodeling Tales. Sheila did the flying part of the story, Should I Fly or Should I Drive to Vancouver, B.C.?
