Biography: Loren Upton

Loren is without the slightest doubt the most determined, positive thinking, obstinate person I've ever met. Born in Southern California 62 years ago, he looks like a member of the famed Royal Canadian Mounted Police or a bulldog tough British grenadier. Maybe that comes from Loren's service in the United States Marine Corps? Loren is a bridge builder by profession, but a true romantic adventurer at heart. His unwavering optimism and desire for high adventure has thus far taken him around the world - Roads End to Roads End Expedition. Not only in height does Loren stand out, he's six feet four inches tall, but also in the depth of his determination. If told something is difficult or impossible, he presses even harder to succeed. Loren's philosophy is: "If it does not work, damn it, make it work!"

Since early childhood Loren has dreamt of being an explorer - reminiscent of the great Victorian Era - to do something different; to venture into the unknown; to overcome; to be first; to reach that unreachable star!


Biography: Patricia Upton

Now this is going to be difficult for me to write. What can I say about me? I'll do my best to give you some idea of who this strange woman is that will literally follow Loren to the ends of the earth. 

I've been traveling since before I was born. In fact, in mid - 1953 I traveled from California to New Jersey just so I could enter this wonderful world with my maternal grandparents at my mother's side. My dad was in the Marine Corps (once a Marine ALWAYS a Marine) and every three years we had our bags packed anxiously awaiting "orders." We had a world globe when I was young and I was constantly fascinated with places like Karnak, Cairo, Timbuktu, Kashmir, Jerusalem, Machupicchu, and countless more.

After spending only a few years in any one place, I found myself in the former Canal Zone in the Republic of Panama. I graduated from Balboa High School in 1971 and attended the Canal Zone College for two years. I began working as a secretary / receptionist at the Canal Zone Girl Scout Council, I felt right at home. I'd been a member of the Girl Scouts since the age of seven and had achieved the rank of First Class, at that time the highest award a girl member could receive. I am now a Life Time Member of the Girl Scouts of the USA. As time went by I became involved in training new leaders and in directing the summer resident camp and day camp activities. Later I was to become Office Manager, Field Advisor, and Camp Director, depending on the day of the week or month of the year! Eventually my position at the Girl Scout Office was phased out due to the United States / Panama Treaties. It was at this same time that the opportunity to join Loren full-time on his Jeep expedition, Roads End to Roads End, presented itself and I jumped at the chance.
