How far do you go to bowl league?
« on: February 04, 2018, 08:24:01 AM »
 My job/working hours don’t allow me to bowl at the “local” center anymore, and I ended up finding a league at a center 75 miles away that bowls at a time that I can bowl, so I drive 75 miles, one way, and 75 miles home every week to bowl.

 I used to bowl much closer, but they are a small, “rural” place, and don’t offer leagues at times I’m off work. I work Sunday thru Thursday, from 10:00p.m. to 7:00a.m.

 I drive 150 miles a week, 32 weeks a year, to bowl one league.


 How about you guys?

5 miles now, but in the mid 70"s it was 145 miles round trip from work in Campti, LA to Bossier City, LA back to Natchitoches, LA where I lived.  I made the trip once a week and bowled in the early and late leagues for about 3 years before a new center was built in Natchitoches.  --  JohnP

 Yea, that’s a pretty good drive. Back when I was still delivering groceries, Monday was my Louisiana day. Coming from east Texas on I-20, I went through Shreveport and Bossier City to get to my first delivery in Doyline. Then went to Hall Summit, Campti, and then to Natchitoches. Did the Wardworth grocery and the French Market there before going on to Winfield, Ruston, and spent the night in West Monroe.

When were you running that route?  I worked at the Western Kraft (later Willamette Industries, even later Weyerhaeuser) paper mill in Campti 1974 - 1980.  --  JohnP
