Don’t worry, this doesn’t involve playing golf while unicycling in any way…
I was at my favorite park today (Fountainhead Park, outside of Occoquan, Virginia). They have a great bike trail - a little too technical for me, but I still love it.
After my ride, I went over to the coke machine to replenish my water supply. You see the coke machine is right by the miniature golf course - and I had an epiphany.
This is no ordinary mini-golf course. It’s not like putt-putt with fiberglass obstacles and big windmills. It’s in a public park, so it’s all concrete - pretty utilitarian. It’s like somebody took those pre-fabricated pieces of concrete that they use to lay sidewalks and curbs and built a mini-golf course out of it. So its just a willy-nilly, wacky arrangement of curbs, steps, and cheap astroturf.
Being that it’s monday and there are no kiddies around to play mini-golf, I decided to try some trials on it. It’s awesome. It’s like a really great trials course mixed with the riding between the lines game we had at moab. It would probably be too easy for most of you guys, but it’s a great challenge for me and I think it will help me learn a lot. I love it. Munitrial Golf - wave of the future.
I’m going back tomorrow and I’ll post some pictures and video tomorrow.
