I have played on and off for a decade and somehow never lost a disc until this week. I lost two discs at Mackenzie park in Lubbock Tx.
#1 My favorite disc, a Red MVP Neutron Volt on hole 14. Threw out over the hill and swear I saw where it came down, but when I went over there it was nowhere to be found. I searched for well over an hour. There's all kinds of cactuses, yucca, and mesquite. I think it got sucked into a portal to another dimension.
#2 I lost this morning on hole 3. My oldest disc, a white Innova Birdie putter. On a medium approach shot, it floated over the top of the basket and down the bank of the river behind it. I thought for sure it was just right there on the edge but I couldn't find it. The river was pretty dried up today, and I got down there and looked around for about 30 minutes before giving up. That was my first putter and it was beat to hell, but I loved it for that deep rim. It would stop on a dime when it hit the ground on dangerous approach shots. This time I over threw it.
I wish there was some kind of GPS locator sticker that we could put on them. My contact info is on both, but I doubt I will ever see them again.
