CARTHAGE, MISSOURI

By: joealaska, 2:50 AM GMT on September 30, 2014

It was a bit longer ride than usual today. We pulled out at 10:30 AM. Hey, I am in no hurry, and you get things done right by taking your time. We pulled into Carthage around 4:30.

I left Waymetta having never played FIREKEEPER GOLF COURSE right there by the casino. I went by a couple times and it was usually busy enough to scare me away. Normally in this situation I am talking with the golf shop, and they may see a spot where I can run out and be pl...

Since I have been on the road I have slowly been going to bed earlier, in general. Not sure exactly when it was last night, maybe 11 PM. But I woke up at 1:30 AM and was unable to get back to sleep. I was listening to how quiet it is here. I could hear some dog barking far off somewhere. Could have been 10 miles away. This IS a 24 hour casino, but I have had no issues with any noise.

I WAS aware The Ryder was coming on early, like 3:30 AM. Like I s...

PRAIRIE BAND CASINO

Yes, we have landed in Mayette, Kansas. I think it is a technicality, just a Post Office classification. We are way out in the suburbs of Mayette, if there is such a thing. I am at Prairie Band Casino and RV. I am on the Rez. It is a decent sized casino, with a few restaurants. The RV park looked big at first glance, then I noticed the other half is over a hill. But there is plenty of room, which Dutchie prefers.

Oh, and a surprise, a very nice g...

AMONGST THE CORNHUSKERS

By: joealaska, 8:10 PM GMT on September 20, 2014

So Wednesday night I played Prairie Club Dunes Course. I went out late to get the cheaper twilight rate, but it was still $115. I had played the course 3 or 4 years ago and thought I remembered where it was, but I was off a bit. So I thought I would be early and instead I was late. When I got there, they said I could go out right away, with 2 groups of four ready to follow me. When I got to the first tee I was breathing hard just because I rushing to get out. ...

SEVENS ARE WILD

I am just a few photos short of 7000 posted. #7000 will happen sometime today. I am also 2 courses short of playing my 700th golf course. The course I will probably play later today is one of the two courses at Prairie Club. I already have played this course, tomorrow I will try to play the other one. This club rotates the courses daily, with one open to the public, the other one open only to members. Good system.

I tee off around 4 PM to take advan...
