Month of disc golf madness

Whew! During July, I have visited 21 totally new ranges for me all the way from Naantali to Joutseno. Some of these were really great and I do want to go there back again. Some were just insults towards all sport-related things and should be avoided like a plague.

And while I was touring new ranges, I also visited old familiar ones too. That makes 26 different ranges total. I probably will never, ever again be able to top this record of mine.

Good ranges:
Söderkulla, short but excellent forest surroundings.
Myllymäki, probably best range I've ever visited?
Veikkola, good one with lots of different courses.
Mukkula, especially those courses in woods...
Mäntsälä, decent range with sand and woods.
Orimattila, pretty good range with height differences.
Ruissalo, nice courses in forest areas, fields bit boring.

Not so good ranges:
Jaala, short and crappy range, avoid at all costs!
Luumäki, short and simple range, but some weird courses.
Pajulahti, 18 holes averaging 40 meters. No challenge.

My step counter has been going insane as I've walked roughly 3x as much as in normal month. And I've enjoyed every one of those steps.

Brexit

I've been following discussion and reactions after the (in)famous vote and I'm more certain that everyone should follow "Be careful what you wish for cause you just might get it" -principle.

Disc dye

Couple free minutes and I managed to do this... While red ink accidentally made one more splash using the old stamp grooves on disc, it suits actually quite well in the image. I'm satisfied despite the error.

+Gilberto Leon I might do that for few first shots... ;)

+Mikko Suikkanen Hmmm, currently I don't have any suitable discs for that, but logo is pretty cool. I might do it for some disc in future.

Watched Gravity last night.

During simple maintenance flight of Hubble Space Telescope, astronauts end up in debris cloud that breaks their flight back home. Soon they find out that they're adrift in space and must find they way back home...

Great effects, nothing more. Story doesn't hold (if you don't know physics then this doesn't matter) and acting is mediocre. This might be entertaining for sake of space effects and some thrilling moments. Only for people who want to see mainstream sci-fi.

Latest disc dyes

Some of the latest dye works I've done... Two Westside Warships, One Latitude64 Fuse, Ruby and Pearl.

Those Latitude64 stamps are really challenging as they either won't come off or then they're so deep stamped that new image spreads into unwanted direction.

Illusion

Pretty cool illusion. Here is fine example how circle turns into rectangular and back...
 
A great finalist for the "best optical illusion of the year" contest.

Rainy day discs...

Did some quick dye jobs to couple discs during yesterday's rain. Pretty pleased to both of them.

Another dyed disc

This one is one that I've thought very long time. I finally broke out blue dye and wiped white disc clean. MVP Switch got my favorite brewery logo on it. Too bad that there were some leakage.

Orange Monster

Found out bargain watch that pleases my eyes quite much... Feels really robust and well-made. And the lume on dial is something really unbelievable. I'm pretty pleased about finding this.

I have the "sister" model; the "solar titanium divers 200m". I was making calf eyes at the Monster for a long time before I decided which one to buy - that orange is very cool, but ultimately I wanted solar charging, and a rubber wristband (can be changed of course).

Either way, they're really solid watches. I use mine almost every single day, in all kinds of weather, and I wear it when snorkelling and free-diving too.

Watched Django Unchained last night.

German bounty hunter buys slave's freedom to help him to find out few wanted men. Soon Django finds out that he has pretty good bounty hunting skills and together they plan to get Django's wife free.

Story flows nicely and acting is decent. Good soundtrack! Modern western with some nods towards old classics. Recommended for Tarantino/western fans.
