On this flight, I made Prescott and Chino Valley but my wife and aunt were ready to go home so I flew back toward Mingus.

Moon, good luck making this disc. I really hope you are able to do it.

p.s. The guy holding my nose wire is dead, he died just a short ways away from where he is standing. I no longer hang glide, too many fatalities, I lost too many friends to it, great sport, don't have the time or dedication.

Ok, Ok, I understand that you don’t want to have to bid on something that you feel part of. I get that . was just trying to get you a good deal and maybe stir up moor interest in this thread. I’ve never sold one at auction for moor then $25.
We could still move forward in the traditional way if your up to it. I think I’m just going to end up sending you back what-ever you spend on a new disc though.
Also thanks for interest and help in my economic scenario , but this is a hobby the 15 hours that I put in on the saw blade dye at what you paid me means I made $1.56 an hour. Already have a full time job bro it pays better. Thanks if there anything I can help with let me know, peace. MOON.

Lived in Chino valley from 92 to 96 worked at Buckies. Like the idea that you flew over my house.

I'm working on something like this right now. Dyeing discs isn't bringing in enough money to eat everyday, so it's gradually getting pushed aside for more graphic/web design projects, but I'm trying to keep disc golf my main focus.

Yes, I'm still up for it. Don't buy a disc, I just bought one, a white star, silver stamped Roadrunner, it is f uckin b itchin.

I make bamboo fly rods. I split the bamboo, plane it down, bind it up. This one is rather special, I didn't use cork, I used purple heart in between the six pieces of bamboo. It took about 70 hours to make this rod, if I went to sell it, I would get about a $1,000 for it BUTT, $300 in materials, cost of the tools, my cost blah blah blah, people don't get it. They don't.

I do.

You do it because it is a kick in the pants.

I'm glad you didn't go negative, that would have taken the mojo out of that disc. I birdied my first roller hole using that saw disc. The guy who is teaching me, threw it first, awesome.

Stoked to be getting the cool dye, again.

And by the way, when I overflew your house, I was scared sh!tless. You know those dust devils that were so big and strong that came ripping through your place? Imagine riding one of those things in a freakin hang glider. I was getting my ass kicked pretty hard, way up there.

You have no idea, very few do.



Hows that huh?

Let's do this.

I wish you well.

Forum based web sites are a pain in the butt.

First one I made was 1996, threaded discussion about fly fishing small streams.

This site is pretty cool. For the most part, I dig the moderation, that is way important. The egos here are huge, giant so the guys who are in charge, they have to have teflon skin and well, nevermind, they are doing a pretty good job. There is one guy...

I am really enjoying this site.

I'm even thinking of paying for the premium stuff.


When you go to make your site, make sure that the user has a place where he can blog, post pictures and integrate that into posts into the forum. Have a front page where you can pull good posts and make them stories.

CMS = Content Management System

I highly recommend the forum software used here.

Tim could actually do it with this site, that would be kick ass.

Nice work on the custom bamboo fly rods looks like the type of thing I could get involved in, so little time so many hobbies. Well if you want to give it a try send that bad boy my way with another money order. Same deal. Sound good?

Sounds good.

You will do well, I know it.

I have the disc in hand, I am going to mail it out in a couple of weeks, not in a hurry. I didn't expect to find this one so quickly.

I'll let you know when I send.

(image not showing up, I'de like to see it, I love trout streams)

Take care and stoked!
