Thanks everyone. I had actually forgotten that it was my 1500th review until Wolfhaley brought it to my attention. But I’m really a little more excited to have bagged my 30th and final major league ballpark here in Milwaukee.

How can you tell that I’m getting old? A couple of years ago, I would have let my wife fly home today by herself and I would have stayed here in Milwaukee with it’s multitude of courses. But instead, I played just two Milwaukee courses and I will fly home today with the wife. It seems like such a waste to be here and not spend a week or more bagging all these great courses!

Slacker!

In May-June 2021 I spent about 6 weeks near San Diego and played every CA course south of an east-west line through Oceanside, as well as a few scattered courses in other areas to the north. Almost every course that I went to had been reviewed by TVK. And back when I was completing playing Virginia (2018-2020) the same thing happened at tons of little remote dinkers in the boonies of southwest VA. TVK has been everywhere! I want to get some signs or stickers printed that say "The Valkyrie Kid" was here. That would actually be really cool to see on a course bulletin board or on the pole of the 1st tee. (The same goes for Derek Tonn, Deke Guff or any of the other Top 10 course collectors.)

^I like that idea. I can also imagine the conversation between our super baggers and local authorities:

Officer: Get back over here! You're defacing public property!

TVK: But officer, these guys on a website told me to do it. Don't you know I'm (internet) famous?

Officer: So, you're one of them influencers?

TVK: Yeah, yeah, DGCR influencer!!

Officer #2: I think it's like tik-toc or something.

TVK: Yeah, just like tik-toc, but for old guys.

Officer: I'm going to let you off with a warning, but don't let me catch you back here...

TVK: Thanks officer, don't worry, I've already bagged all the courses in the area. You won't see me 'round here again. *hustles to his car*

Officer #2: Bagged?

Officer: Beats me. Let's go get a coffee.

Can anybody on here make those little oval stickers with the black line border? If I can get some that say "TVK" I will put them up at courses he's reviewed ahead of me.

That was bad. It was supposed to have read;

Gees, that might motivate me to go for another 1500 reviews.

God, Mike, I really wish I would have had the time to hook up with you and Wolfhaley, too. Since this wasn’t just a bagging trip and being with the wife, I had to keep her happy. In retrospect, I probably should have let her fly home and then stayed and bagged for a week or so.

And I would ‘ve liked to see the Harley Museum too.

Sorry I missed you pal.

I'd be ecstatic to play with either of you legends of course bagging. I'm a nobody in that regard. TVK, I have my eye on Portland soon hopefully, and Washington is right there...😁

Mike, I'm just up the road a little. It'd be amazing to play a round or two and pick your brain a little bit. Let's make this happen. 👍

Congrats to Pizza God for FINALLY getting 2,000 positive votes. It only took him 433 reviews and 13 years to get there. Here's hoping the next 2K votes are earned more easily.
