    Comforting that Aerosmith and Run DMC rocked the place. Scary - Gwen Stefani and No Doubt were 25 years ago. Ditto with Wu Tang Clan.

    That is a sweet SG, you don't see that finish very often. Make sure your wear the Taylormade RAW hat when you play it.

    If you're ever interested in a Big Baby Taylor, shoot me a message. I haven't played my guitars in more than a few years and sold my Strat last year to someone who actually wanted to play.

    I'm done playing acoustic. We're an electric family only.


    Wife is playing the rhythm guitar parts on Rocksmith and I'm playing lead. We were practicing Pumped Up Kicks last night. We both wear crocs when playing guitar. They are called Rock Crocs.

    The most amazing thing to me about watching some of the surfing on the North Shore of Maui - aside from the size of the waves - was how on some of the breaks, there was no beach. In other words if you rode it all the way in, it was just rocks. It was bizarro. But the day we were there there was a windsurfing competition and that was very cool.

    When we went a few years ago, we took an intro surf lesson at a tiny spot not far from Waikiki. Small gentle waves, but it was on reef that was only a few feet down. You could stand on it. It was shallow enough that if it was a pool you'd have lifeguards yelling at you for diving headfirst. So even for small gentle waves you still had to watch how you fell. That's a big nope from me. The reef at Pipeline looks nuts.

    Watching surfing at the North Shore was probably my favorite thing about my trip. It's mesmerizing.

    Most of the big breaks on North Shore Oahu have at least a sandy strip for beach, but I've seen places on Big Island where there's no beach to speak of. . .just breaking on reefs/rocks.

    In about year 2002(?) we went to Big Island with in laws and stayed at a resort. There was a break right there, and wife and I were like, "derp, we'll just go boogie boarding". it didn't take long to figure out how dumb this idea was. The waves just crashed right on crazy coral/rocks/whatever.

    We when got out of the water that day, she stepped on a sea urchin. . .full weight, right on the heel. It basically ruined the rest of the trip for her. It made her sick to her stomach. She couldn't put weight on it. Her heel was filled with broken spines and I was tweezing them out of her foot months later.

    It's no joke there. And very few beaches are guarded. The only place that was guarded was one day we went to a beach where you had to be (or be with) a service member. On the south east coast of Oahu, there were a lot of sandy, calm beaches with clear water.

    This isn't her, but I just google "stepped on sea urchin". My recollection was that hers looked even worse than this. . .

    Poor Domes- no one has informed him of the drawbacks of wearing Crocs to the beach.


    I mean, for jamming guitar tunes with your wife to songs about school shootings, they're great though.

    It is tough to rhyme things with "Manor". I'll keep racking my brain to come up with something.

    It's also amazing that we have by my count- 5 new guys coming. A reminder to the newbs to pack baby oil, your favorite leather outfit, and manscape a little.

    Good move. After we played that much in the rain, there was a lil' chafing going on downstairs. When we went to Pinehurst Brewery we were all squirming a little in our seats.

    Only thing that came to my mind was a song from The Muppets. Sometimes I play like a muppet - all arms and no legs. My proposal then being #ManorMuppets2020

    Have you guys done any weekend-long games on these trips?

    On the betting side, we attempted to last year, but it was quickly abandoned given the weather conditions and number of different courses we played (ie, some guys played #2, skipped Mid Pines, etc.)


    On the after hours adult side, well, you'll just have to wait and see for yourself.

    I wish the grint were better at games. The leaderboard feature is cool, but its pretty limited in what it can handle.

    File this under things I'd never thought I'd see in my lifetime: Rage Against the Machine coming to Dover, Delaware at Firefly.

    We could probably do a nice $5 or $10 a man game on The Cradle and see how that works out- Skins game with 15 of us? Also we should try to get a hole in one- Tex is the only one I know with the special medal.

    Now I'm not sure if your suggesting that we try to get holes in one is about golf or the "after hours adult side."

    Definitely should have made an "In Memoriam" Oscars-style vid for the 2019 Pinehurst Five. Will be pouring out some of my Mad Dog 20/20 in your honors.


    Funniest thing that Google suggests when you search for Mad Dog is the Urban Dictionary definition. "As magestic as the cascading waters of a drain pipe..."


    Sounds like it was written by OCGolfricky himself. Mayhap it was.

    Very cool idea, Rick. Simple, and lucrative.

    On a semi-related note, I caught the first episode of Tourist Sauce: Carolinas last night. I'm already liking it better than the Ireland season. They're not hitting you over the head with mind-numbing commentary on golf course architecture from Tron. They really kept a pretty good focus on the game they've got going for this season, which is pretty amusing. They all start the trip with 100 singles, and bet them as they please, until there's one man standing with all the cash at the end. I'm not sure how they're going to enforce that (i.e., somebody holds a bunch until the end, are they stuck betting it all at a certain point?), but I'm going to enjoy watching it play out.

    Tron is continuing his ascent in my eyes. Aside from his course architecture talks, I actually quite enjoy him in the video content. I like his scrappy game, self-admitted chipping vulnerability, and even his role as the villain at times. His degenerate gambling tendencies are also great to watch. He and Neil essentially out-gambled DJ and Soly in the first episode, which was pretty funny.
