Welcome To oobgolf Retro Week
By Kickntrue on 8/15/10
I'm on vacation* this week, but I'd never just leave you hanging. Nathan Trifone, who has contributed to oob in the past, will be posting a blog or so daily, but that's not good enough, is it?! No way! That's why I've decided to have "Retro-Week" where we'll share posts from oob's past. I don't mean to get too nostalgic (we've only been around 4 years...) but there is a lot we did in the early days of oob that we're pretty proud of that not too many people have ever seen.

So, whether you're new or old to oob- I hope you'll enjoy some posts from our past! Some of them are still relevant today, others, will sound ridiculous (you'll know when you get there). At any rate- they are what they are. Thanks and I'll be back for all of oob's ridiculousness next Monday!

* I haven't taking a vacation like this maybe ever. A couple years ago I visited Nepal and India for 2 weeks but was still connected to oob. I'm staying in the states this time- but for a week of absolute peace. A ranch in Montana** beckons me. Huge amounts of acreage, four-wheelers, motorcycles, white water rafting, guns and family. No cell reception. No internet. No tv channels. Not even a land line. I'm so ridiculously pumped!

/please don't burn oob down without me!

** From John Steinbeck:

"For other states I have admiration, respect, recognition, even some affection, but with Montana it is love. . . It seems to me that Montana is a great splash of grandeur. The scale is huge but not overpowering. The land is rich with grass and color, and the mountains are the kind I would create if mountains were ever put on my agenda. Montana seems to me to be what a small boy would think Texas is like from hearing Texans."

If that doesn't get you pumped for a vacation... I don't know what could!

Don't forget to bring your flyrod and some bright salmon fly patterns. Have fun. The beartooths are spectacular. They don't call it big sky country for nothing.

I'd avoid that "brokeback" region.
Place is gettin to be like the Castro gone flannel plaid.

Not that there's anything WRONG with that.
I mean, some of my best friends are cattle ranchers
