I Return to Thailand to Pursue a Lifelong Dream

November 19th, 2022 by admin No comments »

Well, the trip is turning out to be quite the adventure.

I just sat down in my hotel after having traveled to Thailand and despite the fact that I have not slept in 3 days I cannot go to sleep.

I could not possibly have had a more miserable trip. I spent 14 hours on a plane with a mother with a 3 year old and a 5 year old. The three year old cried the entire time, and the 5 year old kicked my seat intentionally every 15 seconds. By the time we landed, I was ready to scream.

We made an unexpected stop in some Chinese city I had never heard of so they could do a spot security check on our plane. I had never heard of that before. We herded off the plane onto a bus that took us to a screening area, then back on a bus to the same airplane we had just gotten off of with the same screaming children behind me, and the plane won’t start back up. I spent hours on a tarmac, barely able to keep my eyes open, getting kicked by a kid, and listening to another kid scream his lungs out.

When I say ‘herded’, I mean, literally herded. I don’t want to sound racist, because this is not a ‘racist’ comment. It is more of an observation of cultural differences. Chinese people don’t have a bubble. They get in your space, and if you leave an inch in front of you, they will push into it. Old ladies throw forearms that would make any World Wrestling Federation wrestler proud. Any time you turn around, there is literally someone right there. Getting on and off the plane, it was everyone for themselves. I don’t think they realize… we were going to the same place, and getting on the same plane that was going to take off at the same time, regardless of when you got on it.

We ultimately got going (On the same plane that wouldn’t start), and finally made it to the city we were supposed to have landed at in China, only to learn the delay made me miss my connecting flight.

Golf St George Utah

To golf St. George Utah means to enjoy breathtaking scenery… year-round sunshine… within a few hours of a couple major U.S. cities… and within driving distance of some of the country’s most spectacular national parks.

St. George is an oasis in the southern Utah desert. And offers fantastic golf at 12 diverse golf courses… St. George’s Red Rock Golf Trail… within a 15-minute drive of one another.

Whether you drive or fly into St. George, the first time you take in the surrounding scenery, you see an area probably unlike anything you’ve seen before. Red rock… along with black lava rock… astounding cloudless blue sky… broken up by white-walled gorges.

The first time I saw the area was many years ago. I was a freshman on the University of Utah JV football team. We left chilly Salt Lake City on a bus and headed south.

I can’t remember the month. Maybe October or November. It was a long trip at a time the speed limit was capped at 55 mph. An ill-fated and senseless government mandate of that era.

As we headed down the hill from Cedar City on into St. George, we could see the scenery changing dramatically. And when we got off the bus, pleasantly warm temperatures greeted us.

We played a game against Dixie JC on a “field” in the middle of the town’s rodeo grounds. I remember looking down as I got into my stance and seeing… between several sparse patches of grass… dried manure. Left over from the previous summer’s rodeo. Great for a garden but not a football field. Oh my how the area has changed.

My lovely bride and I even spent a few days there on our honeymoon. Before continuing on to Las Vegas of course. But over the last decade, the St. George area has been one of the fastest-growing metropolitan areas in the country.

It’s a great place to spend a vacation as you can play four or five very diverse golf courses without draining your bank account.

The St. George area golf courses are:

Bloomington Country Club

Coral Canyon

Entrada at Snow Canyon

Dixie Red Hills

Green Spring

Sand Hollow

Sky Mountain

Southgate Golf Club

St. George Golf Club

Sunbrook Golf Club

SunRiver Golf Club

The Ledges of Utah
