Yeah, I've seen those, but it doesn't really help if you can't see the disc because of depth or murkiness.

I have been all through the "water" at #3 Hornets Nest to find lost disc. Anyone that plays the course will understand the degree of nasty that this is

I've gone neck deep at the lake in Codorus on Red #4 or 5 I think to get my ESP Pulse. It was really hot and felt so good, but I had to finish the round commando and a bit wet. Theres no swimming allowed either but nobody yelled at me.
I've also climbed a tree up 40' at Codorus on Blue #5 to get my Star Firebird.

I'm too large to actually climb a tree, but I threw a baseball up in a tree for 45 minutes until I finally hit my disc and knocked it down. I'm sure I'm not the only person who carries a baseball in his truck in case of such an event.

Great story (well maybe not so great for you). I hate when that happens!

I had to get out every 5 minutes or so to regain the feeling in my legs. After stubbed toes and lots of cursing I finally found a disc after about 30 minutes. I lept for joy and ran out of the pond only to discover I'd found someone's piece of **** 150g DX Valk. Oh man I was pissed.

The moral of the story: Don't throw your disc as far as you can when there's a freaking pond 15 feet behind the basket. I've lost two discs on that hole now... if it happens again I'm going to come back with a bulldozer and dump truck and fill the pond in. I'll do it... I'm crazy.
Put the dozer down & step back sir!
