Pretty much wherever I am living right now.

Having traveled around a bit and lived a while now I notice that it is easy to get caught up in either looking in the mirror at where I've been or looking way ahead to where I might be going. That makes it hard to enjoy where I am so I've been practicing that skill.

But I think I know what you're asking because I sometimes think about moving somewhere else or maybe building a cabin. I have a friend who has some land down near Duncan and he takes 4 day weekends down there from his Oklahoma City place. He talks about his friends down there and how he likes to visit them in a coffee shop and all the things he's doing on his place. So sometimes I think about that because I know exactly what it is like.

But then I sometimes think it would be fund to live in a loft space and be more urban. Except that I don't think I could stand not getting out in a pasture really.

I think there are lots of places in Oklahoma that you could find to make a home. The whole idea of "best places" really depends so much on you and what you like and the period of your life.

When my children were young I would have answered that question an entirely different way for instance. And I'm pretty sure in a few years I'll be thinking about it differently still.

Good luck hunting though because I think that is part of the fun.

Probably has the same population for the lat 100 years too. Of course they count Big Mac! Ilove my ranch about 16 miles out of McAlester, but McAlester doesn't have much to offer. Crowder has the lake and that is about it too. Not too mention if youlive in Crowder you have to go to McAlester to do your shopping and when I say shopping all you got is Walmart!

Sorry but yes I do hit Atwoods. There moving to a different area though so it will be harder to hit for me. I generally do all my farm supplies out in Stuart area where I live close to.

Guthrie. There, I said it. And anywhere within walking distance of the Wichita Wildlife Refuge.
So, where are those longhorn and what is the closest town?
AND I can still name the five nations.
So there.

I lived in Grove in NE Oklahoma for a number of years. The demograpjocs are about 100.000 and that coveres a large area. It is in the foothills of the Ozark Mountains on Grand Lake. It has a hospital, doctors, good city services, several national stores and restaurants. It isn't too far from attractions like Eureka Springs, Pea Ridge Civil War Battlefield, and War Eagle near the AR/MO border, the Honor Park Azalea Festival at Muskogee, the million light Christmas display, Precious Moments, an 18-hole course and a ton of Civil War history. Closer to home you find a larger than life antique museum and Japapnese gardens at Grove. If youw ant to go a 100 miles you'll find Branson, Jopin and Tulsa. In between there is natural beauty, awesome parks and many secrets to discover. Grove is also consistently ranked as one of the top 5 retirement areas.

I can't think of anything I really didn't like. The people are friendly, the food is pretty good and there is plenty of it. .
