Back in the day, before Harley-Davidson improved the quality of their motorcycles, my buddies and I used to refer to those riders as choosing ‘form over function,’ or choosing style over reliability just because they like the look and sound of their ride.
I love road trips. So when cabin fever set in for me just after the first of the year, I threw the clubs in the car and set out for sunny southern California to visit our friends Ruth and Randy Lowe in Encinitas.
For my day job, I work with groups and organizations helping to develop strategic plans for the short-term and long-term. During this process, we flesh out things like mission and vision statements, key strategic objectives and detailed action plans to move the needle toward success. Sounds fun, right? Right? (OK, thanks.)

Several years ago somewhere in the Midwest, four guys played three golf courses in three states in one day. My friend (and golf buddy) Bruce Robinson told me about this while playing a round of golf two years ago at Highlander Golf Club. He said, “I think we can play four courses in four states in one day.”
