I was lucky enough to take a week or so off from school to help my friend out in Taos, NM build and demo some stuff for his two cabins at 10000 ft elevation. we got a chance to play a bit of disc at a course I love, twogreyhares, owned by bill and his wife.. and a new course in Picarus pueblo that has a few interesting shots, but otherwise as Ben has described it.
I lost my favorite driver, a 12x Wraith on a huge shot over a canyon the first day we played it.
the next hole my friend found $10.
I was kinda bummed.
we got a chance to go back a few days later before I came home to texas and we looked for my disc and I found an unmarked disc, but not my baby. I called out to my friend to stop looking as it had been about 20 minutes and the sun was setting.
he walked up to me at the next hole and handed me my disc. what a sneaky bastard!!hehe.
anyways. made my day to have my disc back.
so I won a disc in the Quest monthly giveaway and the Jumbo toss here.
when I got back from NM they were both waiting for me. a new Quest crossfire putter and a discraft eliteZexpress.
I quickly went out the other day and threw both of them at my local course,,the Vet in Arlington,TX. and on day 1 I threw some awesome putts with the crossfire, but I also met some guy and somehow talking to him as we played a round, I lost my favorite and only Destroyer.
then the next day..today, I did something I normally don't do. On a short hole I threw my buzzz and then decided to throw my new crossfire putter. and I lost my new putter!!!!
I spent 20 minutes or so looking for it, but it was gone. I had even taken a few pictures of it for the Quest club page.
as I was walking back to hole 1 to make a few angry distance drives before I left I saw a group of kids looking at hole 18 basket and wondering what it was.
I walked by and explained a bit and pulled the disc I found in New Mexico out of my bag and gave it to them and felt the Karma return to me.
I'd lost a disc I paid for, one I won, and gave away one I found. But I still had something you cant take away..
the joy of sharing disc golf with a youngster or a new friend, and that made me happy.
