Also one of my favorites was the time I lost a disc, and then 3 months later found it exactly where I had left it the first time. I did not know where I left it, but when I found it, it all came together. I was so shocked that no one else had found it.

My Comet went sledding on #24 at Rodgers Lakewood

My last lost disc was interesting and stupid. Instead of picking up my Comet and placing it safely in my bag I decided to toss it towards the hanging basket to pick up when I holed out. The beautifully marbled X Comet hung in the air, started to fade left, hit the ground on the rim, flipped over on its flight path and went sledding down the hill.

I didn't think anything of it as I watched it slowly slide down the snowy, slightly sloped fairway and towards the half frozen pond. I didn't rush to stop it, I just watched as it slowly made its way to on to the icy pond and thought "I will be able to get it off the ice once it stops." HA! Nope!

The Comet reached the pond only to gain momentum and slide, slide, slide and keep sliding until it was in the middle of the water hazard (about 100' from shore at most). I contemplated walking out on the ice but made a wise decision not to risk hypothermia on a $12 disc. I said, "F it" moved on to play another round of disc golf.

Here in Jacksonville visiting my parents and got a chance to finally play Ed Austin park and I only had an hour and half so I was rushing, I blatantly left a Dx Aviar I think between 7th-9th holes and my Zline BuzzSS on the 16th or 18th hole. They were unmarked so I hope someone enjoys them I loved my Buzz, oh well though I guess this just gives me an excuse to try out the Comet.

I lost this Nuke SS almost a year ago, but think of it every time I drive by the exit for the course when going down the highway. One of my first difficult to cut dyes and favorite companies. Hopefully this will help me feel better about it. I threw it as a second throw off the tee and turned it to the right, which was the worst spot. I am very fortunate not to be allergic to poison ivy, but it went into a forest of low lying plants and poison ivy. I was also with a friend who seems to get a rash from poison ivy just by looking at it. He also had his 1 year old in a stroller. Even longer story short, 3 minutes of searching by myself and we moved on. Hopefully the person who found it appreciates the disc and time it took to hand-cut and dye.

Threw a pearly monster into The local pond a yr ago. Well Friday I pulled it out (3rd monster I've lost there)

Well today on the first throw after retrieving it I threw it back in. This hole isn't even a hazard unless you get a REALLY bad tree kick like I did. To top it off I lost Pearly monster #4 later in the day on a safari hole that will be in the upcoming tourney there. I have one last monster tucked away. Going to have to break it out.

DISC LOST IN HAWAII FOUND IN THE OCEAN!!

I was at staying at Bellows AFB (Oahu) at the end of January. They have a 9 hole course (which is actually a 5 hole since 4 holes are fenced off) so I brought a Buzz and a Cyclone so I could play it. On the first day there, my bro and I were tossing my ESP/FLX Buzz around on the beach when a toss went into the water. It sank Immediately of course. I went running in to grab it but the search mission was cancelled by a life guard on account of the beach being closed due to high bacteria levels. So one of my favorite discs was lost on the first day in Hawaii. I had my name and number on it and asked the lifeguards to keep an eye out for it. After a week of no discs washing ashore, I officially tagged it as lost.

A month and a half later, I get a call from Hawaii. A diver who went treasure diving, spotted my disc under a reef somewhere. The current had taken it out to a place the locals call “Garbage Reef”. Dude is mailing it back to me!! Still can’t believe it.

Went to the local park today by my house to practice my drives. It's not a disc golf park, just a regular old park. Wide open field, nothing around that I could reach unless I broke off a 500 foot throw (and I only throw 300-350).

I was pretty much throwing my whole bag and threw my custom dyed ESP Avenger Captain America disc. I was trying to hyzer flip it and sliced it hard and the wind pulled it way left. It landed on the hill to the left about 250 feet out. No problem.

Only when I went to get it along with 10 of my other discs I'd thrown it wasn't there. I am dumbfounded.

I have three theories.

1. I forgot where I actually threw it. I was throwing so many this is actually possible but I looked for almost an hour around the whole area I was throwing. No Cap.

2. It turned into a hard core roller and is 1000 feet from where it landed.

3. there were a lot of kids running around the park and one of the snot nosed brats saw Captain America's mighty shield flying through the air and snagged it

The Avenger is my money disc and my best driver. I've got a backup in z-line I throw a lot two but this ESP was only 2 months old and has just gotton to the sweet spot where I was throwing it over my z-line. It's got my name and number on it. Who knows.
