I’m six courses behind with the postings on my website, but I’m so excited to get my thoughts down about Sand Hills that I’m putting all the others on ice for now. I’m not exactly sure what happened to me out there in the middle of Nebraska but there’s something there in those gigantic hills of sand that captivated me and gave me a peaceful sense of euphoria that I’ve never… More >
