Beaver State Fling
The Beaver State Fling is a tournament held annually at Milo McIver State Park in the forest near Estacada, Oregon. They take a 27 hole course, add a few more baskets and make two complete championship level 18 hole courses.
Pros, Ams, men, women, old, and young use up all the available daylight hours to get their round(s) played. The first day the pros play two shotgun start rounds which is a format I had not witnessed yet. It forced me to get out to see some players I wouldn't normally choose to watch during a round.
I made it through about a week and a half before the rain found me in Oregon. It just so happened to find me when I was prepared with my slick new "awning" setup. A cheap $5 tarp and some free camping rope from dad's closet made for the perfect cover to make food between round of the Beaver State Fling disc golf tournament. Rain makes me scared of getting out all of my expensive camera equipment so I wasn't able to capture many action photos from the tournament but I throughly enjoyed spectating as usual.
Living in the van when it is raining is probably the worst scenario there could be. With such a small space it is very difficult to keep things dry when you have muddy shoes and all of your clothing is soaked. This time around I had the tree (aka porta potty) and the tarp to block out rain and give me a place where I could hang up wet clothes.
Typically I find a Walmart or Planet Fitness to go use some wifi and hunker down while I dry out when I am on the road, if I am lucky there might be a disc golf shop around to go socialize a bit.
Take note: that oil drain pan (my sink) near the rear tire is like 2/3 full from one night of rain. I was able to reclaim rain water to do my dishes all week.
