Its always shorter then what you think it is. Dont know why, just seems to be how men are, we always figure its longer then it really is.
I've found this to bee so very true. So I generally start where I think it went and then work back in the direction the tee

Threw my FB on a blind shot that had a target on a hill. The disc hit and rolled down a hill, across two more fairways and ended up in a thicket by the creek at te bottom of the hill. Took me 30mi a to find that thing.

Exactly this. Really a bad habit, that cost me a Truth the other day in fact.

I'd love to put a tiny camera on a disc, like the movie Winged Migration, so I could see what it does when I'm not looking.

^This is also my general rule of thumb. The one shot that drives me nuts is the worm burner that gets just over the hill and out of sight before it touches down. Did it cut roll, cut roll and stand up, stand up quickly and turn hard to the right, flex enough to glide out........? You have no idea where to begin your search.

I do this also, after all these years you would think I would learn.
I have learned that it is most likely not as far as I think.

I do watch other peoples bad throws.

It must've been at least 50 feet. Tell me!
Too many times to remember. They've all blended into one big pointless timesuck.

I do this too. Especially when I'm playing by myself and decide to throw another one for practice, I look down to grab another quickly.
