Chris Pratt

If you’re jumping around this cast of characters you might find a common thread between many… LiveJournal—the online diary for teenagers and 30-something bears.

That’s how I first crossed virtual paths with Chris Pratt (not that one) and his partner Dan.

Eventually I met them in IRL the spring of 2003 in Seattle and Chris had the idea to do a trip to Amsterdam and Germany that fall. That trip proved to be awesome and I got a taste of how meticulous he is with planning expeditions.

We’ve since been to Ukraine, Russia, Japan, Southeast Asia, wine country in California and South Africa. I flew out for their wedding in San Diego and they’ve been to Ohio more than once.

I can’t wait for Covid-19 to be a chapter in the history books so we can get the band back together and hit the road.
