A Gang Of Monkey Wrenches

One small corner of the amazingly huge assortment of neat stuff at The Antique Powerland Museums in Brooks, Oregon. This is just one of many lifetime collections of hardware-related stuff to be found in the sprawling 42 acre site.

Fantastic Falls

video
Today's outing was a visit to Silver Falls State Park which is rightly touted as the "Crown Jewel of Oregon State Parks". The "Trail of Ten Falls" is a classic example of Civilian Conservation Corps trail building.
 (note: not all 10 falls seen here due to general laziness)

Tree Stump w/Imbedded Bottle Caps

"Stump seats" are featured at many tee-off spots at the Tom Pearce Disc Golf Course in Grant's Pass, Oregon. Needless to day, the locals like to enjoy a brew or two while making the rounds.

Greetings From The SRRVRDGC*



*aka Sacramento River RV Resort Disc Golf Course

The first day of our road trip ended up with a late afternoon round of disc golf along the banks of the Sacramento River.  The only other players on the course were just finishing up when we arrived  so we had the whole place to ourselves. How exclusive!

As usual, TSG can't putt worth shit on pole holes, but since we don't keep score it's all good.  Playing Frisbee Golf on the road can be a mixed bag--some courses are poorly marked and have a lot of disc-concealing shrubbery which makes for a lot of time spent looking for wayward throws or the next tee.  The folks who run the SRRVRDGC have done an exceptional job in course layout for ease of play. We feel kind of guilty that the office was closed when we arrived because playing there was certainly worth the five spot green fee.
