September 21st Day 729: Virginia and Maryland, had a hitch installed on the car and replaced the tires TIres Plus (been using them for years) Still a lot of driving to do for the year. Got a 10.93 km run in last night and it felt good to be back in the running shoes. My apps screwed up my data so I lost some personal best but no worries I will try again.

September 20th Day 729: Maryland Elk Head state park and finished the drive into town. Got a round of disc golf in at Turkey Hill Disc Golf course and got a personal best of +5 for this course.

September 19th Day 729: Left Maple Grove Raceway Pennsylvania went to Delaware because I have never been there and for a disc golf course yet to be played. Delaware two games at Iron Hill disc course.

Iron Hill Disc Golf Course (2 games both +20) This course itself is not tough WITH THAT said if your game is off it will beat your ass. I could not get my crap together to save my life. The course did not make my score suck My lack of focus and attitude made my games suck, this is a great course and I would play this often if I was a local. 

Amateurs may want to avoid this at first but I would suggest playing it often to make you control your game.  Audio for the podcast was also done: 2022 @jtnortoncom @platinumgeneralservices

Pinchot State Forest #pennsylvania 18 holes Quakers Challange a great course 1st time ever playing and did not have time to play a 2nd round but would love to go back. 

Got +11 first round and even managed a birdie. Numerous times I was throwing to the wrong basket and was also rushing it a bit. Had to make sure I got to my event on time. 

If I can swing by Monday on my way back I would love to play it again. A really nice course I do not believe it is as hard as some of the reviews claim online but it will test your control. A great course!!! Several holes have ace potential once a player settles into the course.

SEPTEMBER 15th Day 727: heading to assist Dave Vantine NHRA Maple Grove I have never been to this track should be fun.

SEPTEMBER 14th Day 726: went for a ride for some disc golf  before I get driving again tomorrow for an event. Also had a great dinner with the Hollins last night. Was a great day with fiends. * got a check engine light but we cleared the code cyclnder misfire, if it pops up again I will notify dealer. I have a feeling it will but the car is running fine. Going to run some high test through her for a bit.

SEPTEMBER 12th Day 724: Got the new car back to where I’m staying and got settled back in.  We went and seen Top Gun Maverick today a fantastic movie

A great movie just a soild fun action flick

SEPTEMBER 11th Day 723: Team Chevrolet of Goldsboro  North Carolina.

My new car was made possible by the support of the Drag racing community that  I have been serving for 10+ years. My old car had a castraosphic engine failure while on the road and they came to my rescue without me asking for the help. #racefamily

SEPTEMBER 10th Day 722: Salam, Virginia and Goldsburge North Carolina. we resolve ,my trabnsportaio  problem,.

SEPTEMBER 9th Day 721: Salam, Virginia: We got the old car cleaned out and got the final word on the solution. We get it resolved Saturday morning.

SEPTEMBER 8th Day 720: Salam, Virginia: MAde a lot of progress today waiting for the new solution to finalize.  Got some disco golf in but did not finish my game got a call and had to leave.

SEPTEMBER 7th Day 719: Salam, Virginia: returned the rental working on vehicle solution. We have located a vehicle but trying to work it out. I’m not due back in Florida for a while so it is a slight problem but we will figure something out.

SEPTEMBER 6th Day 718: Kentucky, West Virginia, and Virginia: (driving) laundry stop and made it to my friend’s place. The car still on the trailer is a good car sad the prices to fix will be so high.

SEPTEMBER 5th Day 717: Indiana, and Ohio heading back from NHRA INDY. Getting some errands done along the way. Will be staying with some friends in Virginia to resolve my car issue. I will also speak to someone tomorrow about another vehicle, he owns some dealerships and offered to help me find something.

   The HHR needs a new motor but if I do fix it the transmission will. Eed to be addressed because of the mileage on it. The repair cost will exceed the value of the vehicle by a substantial amount. I understand it’s a repair shop and the prices are high but it’s an old car and to sink that much into it is a hard pill to swallow. I have put enough into this car over the years to buy three of these, at the book value so not looking forward to doing it again.

A lot of people came to my aid so I owe to them to try and make sure the resolution is the right choice and I can keep being there for them. This support has shown me a great deal about myself and the people I have been around all these years.

“MOM you were right.” – JT
