8 Feet?! Get some ups!

The only time I called it quits and it was in sight was when it was stuck in a tree about 20 ft up and the darn thing was branchless for the first 10 ft at least. If I recall the base had poison ivy too but I would have climbed if I could have reached a foothold.

I let a friend of mine who was in town on a business trip borrow some discs to play at one of the local courses. He called me a while later to let me know that he got a disc stuck about 25ft up in a tall cedar tree. I drove into town (about 15min drive) and climbed the tree to retrieve the disc. can't just leave them out there...

I threw my favorite Star Destroyer in a lake in Mission Beach, San Diego. The very next day, I took an extra hour during my lunch break from work, drove down to the lake and donned a wetsuit to go snorkeling. I could only see about 8-10ft and so I combed the lake back and forth like I was a mowing a lawn. I ended finding my disc and five others.

That afternoon after work, I went to Morley Field and aced hole 4 with the same Star Destroyer for my second ace. That's karma~!
