Right before the holidays, I have about a 3 day window when I can get outta town before two months of non-stop printing and stocking the store. Luckily, my good friends, Jason Pawley and Daniel McKinney coaxed me into going on a two night camping trip. We ran down to McAlester to play a few disc golf courses and sleep under the stars. Here's a few highlights from our trip!
Pawley brought along his pup, Arrow, and I brought my dog, Gracie. The courses are very dog friendly, and they did great. Camping just isn't the same if you don't have a few good dogs alongside.
In three days we played 6 full rounds of disc golf at three different courses, and probably another 18 made up holes around our campsite. On our way to and from McAlester, we pit-stopped at Mekusukey Disc Golf course. In McAlester, we played Buffalo Run and Eagle Hill twice each. All three courses were great, each offering different obstacles and atmospheres. Buffalo Run is an extremely well laid out course and wonderfully manicured. Eagle Hill and Mekusukey are much more technical and in the trees.
Each day we played 2-3 rounds of disc golf, which ends up being around a 10 mile walk each day. By the end of each day, we had hungry bellies and tired puppies. McKinney made sure we ate well, and I made sure we had plenty to drink. By the time 10pm rolled around, we were all howling at the moon.
McKinney and Pawley are both serious supporters of the store and brand. Here are a few shameless product shots to convince you to shop with us soon!
A big thanks to Daniel McKinney for snapping a majority of these pictures. He is a good friend of our store and the Plaza District. Get outside, throw some discs, hike a little, and give your dog a hug. If you're doing those things in our apparel, tag us in photos on social media or use the hashtag #TLwearitout.
Until next time, cheers chumps!
