Ritchey: In 2016, I went to Botswana for work. I work for Safari Line in Sugar Grove. It was the best adventure, the adventure of a lifetime. I came that close to a lion, that close to an elephant. I touched an elephant’s tusk. I was on 13 planes in 11 days – puddle jumpers. I came across a turn in a boat, and there was an elephant’s behind right there. It was crazy.
