Default Met my disc golfing neighbor yesterday

So a neighbor who live behind my house (other side of privacy fence) kept hearing me ring the chains on my practice basket and stopped by yesterday. Sean and his wife had a kid a few months ago so disc golf has been impossible for him lately. He said that hearing the chains made him want to get out and play again and so he had to figure out who the other neighborhood disc golfer was. He is going out with me and my regular group this weekend, weather permitting. Kinda cool to know that my practice putts are ringing out through the neighborhood, maybe sort of reminding the tired, the overworked, the ones drowning in responsibility that disc golf is important, too, and they should get back out there.

That is pretty cool, and getting out with young kids in the house is d@mn-near impossible so keep inviting him even if he has to bail on a round or two.

Yeah, it's cool for sure to meet a neighbor and bond over something I love. I will definitely keep inviting him out. I can't imagine the time/attention required for children.

You mean disc golf isn't as important as children?! Looks like I've got my priorities all wrong Luckily, I don't have kids to worry about.

This makes me hopeful. I'm moving next Friday from a more rural setting to a suburban one. I have lots of space to ring some chains without disturbing neighbors. Won't be the case in my next place. But, maybe I should send out the bat signal with a couple chains and see if anyone bites.

Either that or go door to door asking if anyone in the house plays disc golf. Ha!
