I'm also trying to play as hard as I can despite some financial woes. A few months ago I started dating one of my old friends from Camp McDowell, Mark Drake. He got me started on my new addiction of playing disc golf (Check out http://www.pdga.com/ for more information). I joined the league here in Birmingham and have already played several courses in Alabama. It's relatively inexpensive to begin playing with most discs costing under $10 plus there are no course fees. Mark and I also share a love of camping and have gone to Sipsey Wilderness several times. As if I was having enough fun, I've been going to nearly every concert or festival that I can. That list includes: Umphrey's McGee, Yonder Mountain String Band, RJD2, Trey Anastasio Band, Wanee Festival (with Widespread Panic, The Allman Brothers Band, Derek Trucks, and tons more). Tonight I am going to see Lotus play at WorkPlay and already have plans to see three nights of Phish in July with Mark.
I may be in a funk right now and possibly having one of the worst weeks of my life but the only things I can say is that I'll keep on truckin. It's all I can do. :)
