Maybe he best loves the wide open countryside horizons not hemmed in by trees and hills.

I'm thinking if you want all that he wants in the OKC area.....

The area around Meeker......probably 15 miles in each direction would work. Surprisingly the exurb areas of eastern OKC get 35-40 inches of rain. Western exurbs get low 30ish.


Also those eastern areas around Meeker seem to have less restrictions on what you do with your property. The bottom land around Jones on the north Canadian would be another place to look.

Fly over the outlying areas of OKC and you will see what I am talking about.

Yes, it is generally not as hot as on the other side of the Arbuckle mountains and this year is almost too cool. At least for my hot peppers! Gun laws are not as unrestricted as you seem to think and building codes exist and are being enforced. Groceries are not cheap. Medical care depends on your insurance. Everything you are looking for is on the other side of town.

It works for us and we have been all over the US, Europe and Sand Box.
It's better than where we are now in practically every way.

We're looking in the Tulsa area now, especially after hearing that Muskogee has gigabit internet access.

We probably want something partially wooded. But it's not a requirement.

You can get that pretty much anywhere in east of OKC in the whole state without difficulty. You can get really thick woods if you want. But our trees are kinda short.

I love my ranch and I have grandkids in the State but given all the heat and I mean HOT and lack of snow, I'd move back to the North. Than again I have always love snow and surely miss it. The truth is you can have a lot for you money. Property taxes are the lowest we've ever paid and we have lived in many States. I do think EASTERN OKLAHOMA is prettier and my ranch is very hilly which is great for looks and hiking or hunting but does lack some in how many cows one can have.
