SnowMotion I just love all the comments about winter being a little closer. No matter how my day is it always makes me happier.

LuckyRVA Earlier this week was the hottest day of the year so far in NYC (about 100 F) and I happened to be planning my January trip to Jackson Hole. Can't wait.

And this year on the east coast can't possible be worse than last year. I'm keeping my fingers crossed.

I would be permanently immersed in the Colorado River not standing out on a golf course, at least not until the sun went down!!!
I was driving back from Phoenix almost exactly a year ago. It was 117F on the thermometer on my wife's van. It was hot!

But get this. I could stand that dry 117F better, than I could 90F in texas. Weird! That humidity is a killer.

poutanen Well I'm half Finnish so the summer solstice is a big celebration for us. Supposed to be having a big party in a park tomorrow but it's supposed to rain here so that sucks! The long days in Calgary are really cool though, much different from Ontario. Sun sets after 10:00 at night and there's still a trace of light in the sky around midnight, then by 4:00 am there's another trace of sun. It's weird waking up at 5:20 to full on sunshine!

Of course the winters are dark and long, but that's okay by me!

linvillegorge I generally play better when I walk, but I'll ride occasionally - especially if I get stuck playing midday and it's hot as hell.

NWBoarder Dude, don't diss the cart. Nothing wrong with rolling a course, especially if the cart comes with the green fee. Golf, skateboarding, longboarding, BMX'ing, hiking, camping, road trips, and a little summer snow if i'm lucky. Yep, summertime isn't so bad.

awww yeaaa! Just finally got the hang of the whole golf thing this summer and figured out why I couldn't hit a ball straight to save my life. Really into it now, just wish it wasn't so dam expensive

I play in style, with Vibrams and clubs that are as old as I am (NO, I don't normally use a cart, was playing with an old dude)
