I get by with a little help from my... Family.

I'm in the midst of a journey.  A golf journey.  So far, in the last 7 days, I've played Inverness Club in Toledo, OH, Oakland Hills Country Club in Bloomfield Hills, MI, Bethpage Black in Farmingdale, NY, Philadelphia Cricket Club in Flourtown, PA, and Huntingdon Valley Country Club in Huntingdon Valley, PA.

...And I'm not done. 

I still have Holston Hills Country Club tomorrow (Knoxville, TN), and East Lake Country Club on Tuesday (Atlanta, GA).  I might throw in another round or two inbetween.  We'll see. 

Right now I'm in Asheville, NC, spending the night with my aunt and uncle, getting some rest and gearing up for Holston Hills tomorrow.  I've put over 2000 miles on my car since leaving Chicago, and full-on rocked out to more than a few songs on my iPod in the comfort of my motorized soundbooth.  Honestly, I can't wait to get down to Florida for the winter (should be arriving Nov. 2), but the freedom of driving and the joy of playing golf have got me in a state of wonder right now, and I hope it doesn't let up anytime soon. 

It's funny, though.  I am from a family that has been very lucky and very tight knit my whole life.  Most of us live in or around Chicago.  I have grown accustomed to dinners with my extended family on a relatively frequent basis and have never lived more than a 30 minute drive from at least one member of my immediate family. 

But here I am, moving to Florida for at least the next 7 months, and for the first time in my life I'm nowhere near family.  Neither is Jason, really.  So I suppose we'll have to see what happens there... 

So here is my last hoorah with family.  Played Inverness and Oakland Hills with my dad.  My dad's cousin joined us for Oakland Hills.  Played Bethpage and Phila Cricket with my cousin.  Stayed with him in Jersey.  Visited another cousin who lives in Washington, DC yesterday, and here I am in Asheville with my aunt and uncle.  This is the last line of family til Florida.  Until Christmas, maybe?  Until the Spring? 

Ok, golf.  You've got big shoes to fill...  Better live up to it.
