How Two Young Hippie Friends Grew Up to Live Very Different Lives

So we rolled up our bags and made our way to the top of the trail. And a young boy, about eight years old, took us to a really sweet little pension for not much money.

Beck: Hopefully they had a shower.

Kelly: Oh my gosh. We had to hang our sleeping bags to air them out for awhile.

Beck: How did your friendship evolve after that trip?

Kelly: When we came back from our many journeys in Europe, we both knew we needed to find our own way in life. Stephanie needed to get back to LA. We stayed in touch while we worked and found partners. I moved to Oregon. Stephanie’s had her own adventures; she’s traveled a lot more than I have. I’ve become very connected to our little place here in Oregon and made that my life while I raised my kids with my husband.
