Hi TXTriker and welcome! There are quite a few other Okies on ATS that I haven't mentioned and that haven't dropped by. I'm not dropping names anymore. I figure if people wanna show up they will. I've personally met with several Okies that are on ATS. Have become good friends with a few.

It's not surprising that there's so many Okies on ATS. The whole state just seems to be the type of place that would be interested in an ATS type environment. You're always welcome to pop in and tell us about your travels. Hope your family was well compensated for the lake property.

Cheers!

It's gorgeous back that way. I live on the east side of the WMWF, driven back through it and towards Tom Steed, love that country.

Compensation? - not that I recall but it was a long time ago. I remember they had to go to court to give me "age of majority" so I could sign the papers. I think I was 16. Our grandparents died without a will and then my dad did too so the estate was quite complicated. It is a beautiful place and I'm quite proud of growing up there.

I have two brothers still living in the area so we visit every so often - not nearly as much as I would like though.

I will make this thread on of my regulars to keep up with all. Will advise next time we are headed up that way to see if a meet up would be feasible.

I always loved going to the refuge. When we were little my mom would take us to various lakes in the summer and we always had to go to the top of Mount Scott.

Supposed to be hidden treasure there if you are into that sort of thing.

I hadn't mentioned it earlier but we grew up in a little town called Mountain Park (formerly Glenwood). Claim to fame was fabulous 4th of July celebrations years ago. They had a gorgeous town park and the celebration lasted 3 days.

Kind of a heavy load to put on a 16 year old.
Looking forward to a meet-up next time you get a chance to roll back through town.

I have my favorite areas of Oklahoma that I like to visit from time to time. Camping and such. I hear people from other states comment on what an "ugly" state Oklahoma is and how there's nothing to do. It's a beautiful state if you know where to look and the things that are fun to do here usually require that you turn off your cell phone. LOL.

Not really - it was just to make me legal to sign the sale papers. That was all. My sister and I were the only ones underage I think. Strictly a legal thing.

Hope to get up there soon. Things have been a little tough for my husband and I the last few years. We are both working again so hope to get back on our feet soon. Just so much backlog to take care of now. We will get it all straightened out though. We're tough.

Of course you're tough; you're an Okie.
