He put out the four days on the calendar and I signed up with no idea where we were going. In the end it was just two retired big guys going where ever the car was pointed. People would ask us where we were going and we would have to tell them "disc golfing". Most times they would need an explanation of that sport.
Road tripping is an art form of tolerance for your fellow passengers, the weather, the car, roads, diners, etc... Done correctly, none of those items are a hardship, in fact they all enhance the experience. There is a caveat called the "7 Ps" which came to me through a friend in his first year of engineering school at the UW. Prior Proper Planning Prevents Piss Poor Performance.
The Rear Admiral had done some research on disc courses and coupled with the concept of finding the sun and my thought of going east of the Cascades ASAP he had both Count Ferrari and the Rear Admiral rolling along at mid day on a Monday heading over Highway 90 to points East!
|Our route in broad strokes|
Dawson Park in Suncadia: Cle Elum, 9 holes, gated entrance no worries, gorgeous, we played it on the way over and then again on the way back.
Downriver: Spokane, 18 holes, along river with hills and pines, gorgeous
Sunset Park: Lewiston, 9 holes, park setting with hills and nice lawn, view was amazing
Hell's Gate State Park: Lewiston, 9 holes, no map of course, #5 target is out of sight behind trees to right, along river
Fort Walla Walla: Walla Walla, 18 holes, map on line, long
Wide Hollow: Yakima, 9 holes (going to 18 soon), in a park setting with lawn and grooming.
