Thumbs up Another complain about losing a disc thread

Exciting, isn't it?

I was playing Wildwood, doing another triple putter round. I throw an Organic Wizard, Ion and Ridge at every tee and play each lie individually, and keep score for every disc. Quicker than playing 3 one disc rounds, and I get to play with some cool putters I don't normally throw.

Got to hole 7, shanked the drive with my Ridge. Got a lucky kick out of the brush, but still didn't have a good line to the basket. Threw an OH over the tree in front of the basket, heard it hit some leaves on a branch, then nothing. Didn't hear a landing. Proceeded to look for it from about 4pm to sunset. Was pretty fun. Even got a mosquito bite on my lip of all places.

I tried re-throwing the same shot with my Evo Wizard a good 20 times trying to estimate where it would of landed. Climbed multiple trees. Walked through a few spiderwebs, got slashed by some thorns, had mosquitos swarm my sweaty ass...man I love disc golf.

Whatever. I'm going out before sunrise tomorrow armed with a shaving sharp machete and hatchet, with my boots, jumpsuit, work gloves and a few changes of clothes just in case. I mean business.

Oh, in the process of looking for my putter, I found two discs. Champ spider and Star Wraith. Both were buried in the ground with about 1 sq. inch visible after I kicked some undergrowth around. I can find that **** but not my disc, which should be out in the open somewhere? Pfft. Oh well, I've been wanting to try a Wraith again, and I know who's it is and he told me to keep it since he's all Discraft these days so that's cool.
