Finally got a job through a family connection at Verizon. Workin as an outside plant inspector. 6 months off was nice but it's gonna take twice that long to pay off the debt I racked up but, it sure feels good to have work to do again.

I'm a youth sports coach, and in these tough times recreational activities are the first to go. The club lost numbers, and I lost my job.

I spent all of February working close to 40 hours. Now, my hours have been cut to 24 one week and 16 next. More time to practice but how do you pay the bills with those hours?

Thanks for the support all ! Found part-time work @ 20 hours/week. Kinda sad but taking everything I can to keep the house. Grats DG rocks my socks on the job, and I'm sure the Mrs. won't be thrilled with increased DG and decreased work so I feel for ya Drx49er. If only I had a nest egg to sit on I would do another cross country trip. Detroit to L.A. was a blast!

I tried to play more when I was out of work, but the Mrs. wasn't really cooperating. Oh well. I'd love to get some road trips in someday.

my boyfriend and I have been laid off for 8 months now, thats when we started playing disc golf (july). We went on a few road trips. We went to minnesota to stay with my relatives and we hit a few courses, we really like the one in duluth it has a great view and some nice shots it was cold at the time and it started to rain ,but it was alot of fun. We went to nashville tn and we hit 4 courses, the courses were alot of fun and had some difficult shots. we are getting antsy to get back to work but theres really no jobs were I'm at as it seems like everyone is laid off .
