Golfing with the Cartwrights and dining with the Donner Party!
This was definitely a strange pairing. We played two courses that have a connection to the TV show Bonanza and the Ponderosa Ranch. That explains the Cartwright family connection. But dining with the Donner Party? One of our Always Time for 9 staff members has the last name Donner. He is a big man with a hearty appetite. As we traveled over Donner Pass from Nevada to California and eventually to Oregon, we made sure to stop at every rest area and restaurant to make sure his stomach was full. You just never know…
