My upcoming roadtrip WI, IL, MO, AR, TX, OK, KS, IA

I have a tentative trip setup right now 17 days long (Starting about January 6th) including overnights in these cities or surrounding areas:

Day 1: Milwaukee to Springfield, MO (Get as much driving in the snow out of the way, but we will play along the way if weather permits)

Day 2: Springfield, MO to Fayetteville, AR for a family visit if the family will be around or Tulsa, OK

Day 3: Tulsa or Fayetteville to Dallas (on the east side somewhere).

Day 4: Dallas to Houston (Through Tyler Nacogdoches Lufkin and Huntsville)

Day 5: Houston to Galveston

Day 6: Galveston to Corpus Christi

Day 7, 8: Corpus Christi to San Antonio

Day 9, 10: San Antonio to Austin

Day 11: Austin to Ft. Worth

Day 12: Ft. Worth to Oklahoma City

Day 13: Oklahoma City to Kansas City

Day 14, 15: Kansas City to Norway, IA (to visit Grandma)

Day 16: Norway, IA to Belvidere, IL (to visit a college buddy)

Day 17: Belvidere, IL to Milwaukee

Allright everyone . . . who is on these routes and wants to get together for a round. I would prefer it be in any of the cities I am staying overnight as meeting up during midday travel will be a hassle for all involved because we will never know how travel is going, or how our stops will alter our timelines. I just know I will be playing every morning I wake up early, then back to the hotel to pick up my wife and head out to adventure a bit, play some courses in that city we stayed, and then head to the next destination. I look to play a minimum of 2-3 courses per day, I would prefer the best in the area, but would play anywhere really!

Who wants in?

This is the roadtrip with my wife and I very well may take a 7 day trip myself to play a bunch too. I havent decided where that will be though and it will depend ont he weather of course. I could definitely seeing my hitting up houston or austin or dallas for an entire week and just playing every course in the city.

I have some work to do to catch up to mashnut, but I have all but given up hope to keep pace with him!!!

Hey, a couple good trips and you're not too far off. I have one trip planned for next week but otherwise I won't hit too many new ones until things thaw out a little. I never thought I'd catch you at the beginning of the year, but I manged it. Your turn

I really need to get out to some new courses, I might just travel to Fayetteville to play with ya.

Any chance of bringing the clubs too? I always love a round of disc golf followed by a round of ball golf

Harr, I know you're from a cold weather state, but you're hardcore taking a road trip this time of year. Thankfully this area is forecast to have a dry winter.

You'll pass within an hour of me on this day. I can potentially make the trip down to Wichita, but it will depend on the day of the week and time you'd be coming in. A Tuesday will work best, but so can a Monday afternoon or Wednesday morning. I can give you a tour of Herman Hill or Oak.

From Oklahoma City to Norway, IA, these would be my recommendations that are sort of close to the interstate. Obviously you're not going to have time for all of them.

Norman, OK (just south of OKC) - Griffin Park
Oklahoma City, OK - Dolese Youth Park
Wichita, KS - Herman Hill Park
Emporia, KS - Jones Youth Park (2 courses)
Kansas City, KS - Rosedale Park (2 courses)
Kansas City, MO - Water Works Park, Cliff Drive
Lamoni, IA - Graceland University, J & B Rolling Hills
Indianola, IA (just south of Des Moines)- Pickard Park
Des Moines, IA - Ewing Park, Grandview Park
Colfax, IA - Lewis Club Park
Urbana, IA - Wildcat Bluff
