This was the summer Corey and Henna started to call me Old Man Noel. As in “Old Man Noel doesn’t like it when people travel without maps.” And of couse they say this in an exagerated grumpy old man voice. Boy do I love that.
Truth is that Corey and I have spent 21 years summer road tripping (16 for Henna). Some things have changed for the better (I do not miss calling cards) but other things have just changed. But enough stays the same (like the crazy fact that in every trip there comes the point where the laundry bag is actually greater than the sum of all the clothes actually brought on the trip) to know we are pretty darn lucky to be able to criss-cross over this continent year after year. And there are no two other people I would ever want to travel with (although maybe I wish they had a better nickname for me).

Hi Corey, Noel and Henna from Vancouver Island. Today is my mom’s birthday, and she has been in my thoughts today too. Strong Bogren women. We are all in this together and self isolating. Stay safe, and I look forward to your next adventures blog when all this craziness is in our past. Love Pam
Sorry for not replying sooner. Have often thought how much nicer it would be to quarantine on Vancouver Island! Hope everyone is well.
