    Hello Everyone…

    Last year someone posted here what to pack and bring to Myrtle Beach.

    I thought that post was very informative as I usually forget something(s).

    If whoever posted that could they repost it? Me, being me, I didn’t save it. That was so helpful, Thanks!

    Things to do:
    1. Ensure golf bag and case weigh less than 50 pounds.
    2. Have someone pick up your mail while you’re gone.
    3. Have someone water your plants and feed the pets.
    4. Put a note in mailbox to ask mailman to hold your mail until the day after your return.
    5. Tell a trusted neighbor/family member when you are going to be gone, so they will
    watch the house. Give them key to the house.
    6. Fill out your work timesheet for vacation.
    7. Pre-pack some items the weekend before you fly (saves you from the mad rush; think
    Christmas last-minute shopping.)
    8. Pick up or make some trail mix (or your favorite snack) for the airplane trip or hotel
    9. Get Travelers Checks or use credit card. (no need to carry a lot of cash)
    10. Call Credit card company before you leave, so they know you are out of town.
    11. Call in your prescriptions a week before you leave.

    That’s it Mike, Thanks and a Thanks to Ken for putting it together!

    Tony Robison

    Nice list…..I just throw crap in the bag right before I leave. If I need something I buy it. Not stressing for days if I’ve got everything to go on vacation. I come for Golf, Alcohol, Food, Alcohol, as long as I have my clubs, I’m good 😉

    It is a little late for this but good to remember for next year and years afterward.
    Around mid-March or early April, start practicing and then practice, practice, practice your drinking and if you get a chance, practice a little golf too.
    If you know you are coming and you are in a group like ours or you plan to hang out with a group like ours you have to have your alcohol game in good shape.

    William Zeoli

    Great job , Mike. I’m pretty thorough, but this is more than helpful.

    Ken Weatherford

    You are welcome, guys! Always willing to help. You might also add bug spray and suntan lotion to that list.

    Ken Weatherford

    Oh yeah! If you have time, get some Gorilla Grip towels. They also come in very handy if it rains or on very humid days. You can put it on gloves, grips, etc. and doesn’t leave any residue.
