Bowling Vacation

Just Got an Ebonite NVD

Do you want to be envied? (I know, a silly pun)

I just received an [bowlingball value=”6303″/] to drill up for use. I am going to test this bowling ball out on Thursday 8/21/2008. I will write up a review on this later this week.

I am looking forward to this ball that has a perfect scale of 205.7. Here is the description.

Be NVD by all of your opponents!

The NVD has a new core design, Spike Core Version 1A which provides a lower RG, high flare potential and a stronger mass bias rating. Wrapping around Spike Core Version 1A is a stronger version of our Traxion Reactive cover, Traxion Reactive 0.48. This cover has kept the oil absorption rate at 10.1 (the GB #) while increasing the Traxion Factor to 0.48. This increase in the number will allow the NVD to produce a stronger ball in higher oil volume environments. This ball will give you a stronger motion when compared to the Complete NV. Comes out of the box at 4000 Grit Abralon.


The Perfect Scale™: Helping Bowlers Make Better Decisions. Because each manufacturer uses a different method for indicating a ball’s hook potential, developed a way for the consumer to compare bowling balls across all manufacturers.

Beach Lover on Don Pedro Island

While on vacation at Don Pedro Island, we are staying in a rental unit known as Beach Lover. This is a 4 bedroom, 3 bathroom house that sits on the beach.

It was a thrill to walk in to a clean, well kept location.

The kitchen was fully equipped with all the essential tools needed to cook great meals. There was paper towels, coffee filters, and soap available. Any other consumables need to be brought. Equipment included a microwave, blender, toaster, coffee maker, and dish washer.

The living room has two couches and two chairs, a fireplace, tv with cable, DVD player, VHS player, and full surround sound.

They even leave you a bunch a DVD’s to watch, and some board games to play.

I must say that it is a very relaxing experience. It has to be, the owners have a few “relax” signs all over the place. I really felt at home in this house.


Don Pedro Island

Don Pedro Island is in a small string of islands of the south west side of Florida. It is south of Tampa and Sarasota and make a wonderful vacation destination.

It feels like your own private island. We have been here twice now and both times we have seen fewer than ten people on the beach at any one time.

There is not a bridge to the island. You have to take your car on a ferry to cross over. It really is like no other experience I have had.
