Roadtrippin 8/20

Postby uNicedmeMan » Tue Jul 31, 2007 11:13 am

me and some buddies are heading north for a road trip august 20th

we were plainning to go south to S.C but we've had to change our plans

now we are heading north (from the baltimore area).
courses were planning to hit:

Tyler
Warwick
Marshall Street

Does anyone have a suggested route filled with badass dg spots? Or maybe just a few more courses that must be played along the way.

we will eventually end up in clearfield PA to camp at my buddies cabin for the the weekend. a weekend full of all sorts of over indulgence, makeshift holes with portable baskets, campfires, girlies and LID KAMAKASI!!!

As far as MA and CT a couple more must plays are Wickham park in Manchester CT, Heroes in Granby CT, and Buffumville in Charlton MA. The first two really are MUST PLAY courses with the third being a good option near Marshall St.

Taking 95 north from Baltimore, or 83? Looks like 95 if you are stopping at Tyler...

If you take 83 you can go to either the Boulder Woods course at Gifford Pinchot State park, or the newly installed, freshly finished, 95% playable, yet to be named, championship course on the other side of the lake (in the same park).

There is also another course in Harrisburg that is not too far from 83.

If you take 95, there is always Sedgley - they have 9 "new" holes that are open.

You should definetly hit Warwick, Wickham, Hero's, and Marshall Street. Just get to I-84 in CT and your set. pm me if you need some better directions around ct.

4 amazing courses, actually 5 if you include the two on MS. Well worth the stops. 84 is a nice dg corridor in CT. How far north are you planning on going?

Borderlands is a really amazing course too, tight and technical and long.


Sounds like a really fun trip.
Throw discs, and forget about life for awhile...

Not sure how far north were going.

we really need to sit down and plan out the routes and a time table.

its pretty sweet that after the dg trip ends we will allready be north to meet our friends at the cabin in clearfield PA. There are some logging trails that make really nasty holes.

And
Straub (one of my favorite beers) is readily available for purchase in the area

P.S
the coolness of our trip is dwarfed by the nastiness of the trip for my one buddy.
Not only is he joining us for the dg trip and camping but afterwards traveling directly to NY to pick up some friends then headed to CO. He is going to be living in Vail for at least a few months and also working at vail. I told him to post up on here so he could meet up with some CO homies on the bored. I told him that TDK could probably teach him how to throw over the rockies :shock:

Check out the "directions" post that I added to today. It shows how you can get permission to play at Heros (it is needed for all every time they go out there). Also you can get directions from Hero when you pm him.
