That "isolation" is what makes it so attractive! You're only 40 minutes from Joplin, 40 minutes away from all the growth going on in the Springdale/Rogers/Bentonville area, then just over an hour away from Tulsa! You'd be surprised how much of a music scene there is around the lake.

I actually like Wagoner, but I would say Grove over all others. But of course the all others that I have been to is only Muskogee. Don't move there unless you move out of town to Ft. Gibson or Wagoner.

If you are with the company I suspect, they also have a plant near Ardmore but don't know the exact location. Construction is booming in and around Ardmore keeping the cement business very busy from what I can see. I came from Dallas (still my primary residence) and bought a place with a few acres, horse barns and pasture in the city limits. It is a great place and there are bargains on houses although the economy is so good there housing costs are going up from what it was in 2005. We are about a mile from Lake Murray where you can fish or ski, and not far from Lake Texoma. I highly recommend it.

Just saw your message Seebeebolt. I checked out Salisaw. Not a pretty town what there is of it. You would be driving to Ft. Smith to shop all the time. Or coming to Tahlequah. Now I did like Vian, which is much smaller, but still you would be driving far to shop, but if you don't mind that then I like it better than Salisaw. It is a very small old town, maybe one block long, but the area is really pretty. It was the first town we saw when we drove here off I-40, and as soon as we got off 40 I said, "I love it here."

Tahlequah has a lot of musicans. I think they are kind of bluegrass. I don't know for sure.

We get our concrete from the Mannford plant. Two of their employees who I know live in Terlton, about 15 miles from Mannford. Nice area, properties are still very reasonable here, compared to north, east and south of Tulsa.

Good luck!!

Mid-Continent Concrete Co. is the name of the company.(I hope that's not considered advertising) Seems like they're pretty big in that area. Anything anyone might know about the company, like what some of the employees working there think of it, might help me too.

It's a big decision to pack up and move 650 miles from home. ANY info I can get would be a big help in making a decision. Thanx.

Mid-Continent is extremely solid. My understanding is that all but one concrete company in Oklahoma is owned by one guy, and he allows that one competitor to remain so he cannot be accused of being a monopoly. Mid-Continent is a part of that group of companies that Roger owns. As a driver, you would have a long term, secure job with them. They pay well, they offer lots of overtime, and decent benefits.

Sounds good. Thanx. I have an interview with them tommorrow afternoon, that is if I'm not stranded in the ice storm on the way.

Leaving Kankakee, IL. at 4:30pm hoping to get west of St. Louis tonight and finish the trip in the AM. Looks like it's gonna be pretty treacherous!
