After over five years on OK small town with a view of two huge churches and one smaller on from the back porch - still waiting for someone to knock on the door. Looking at your other posts ...

From my understanding you live in Mustang.

My favorite joke about small town rural Oklahoma goes something like this.

Threestep2 moves from Mustang to small town Oklahoma and lives there for 70 years. Threestep2's name comes up among the local boys who have lived there all their lives down at the coffee shop...

One of them says..."Oh, Threestep2...she's the lady who moved here from Mustang".

You mean get out more from my house in a Tulsa suburb so that I can have someone from Tennessee explain to me what the area where I live is like? Or did you not know that Jenks is a major Tulsa suburb?

This board is so stupid sometimes.

The OP said he was wanted to live "off grid living type of home outside a small town away from any big cities"

Counties in the Tulsa MSA: Tulsa, Osage, Rogers, Wagoner, Creek, Okmulgee and Pawnee. Tulsa's CSA adds Washington and Muskogee counties, which are each dominated by largish towns.

Counties not in the greater Tulsa area in northeastern Oklahoma but part of other metros: Ottawa (Joplin metro area), Sequoyah (Ft Smith Metro)


Truly rural counties in Northeastern Oklahoma away from cities: Mayes, Nowata, Craig, Cherokee, Delaware, Adair, Macintosh.

And the OP should toss out Cherokee because it's dominated by Tahlequah which is a college town and the Cherokee capital. With the growth of Google and other companies in Pryor I wouldn't be surprised to see Mayes county added to the Tulsa metro soon, it's pretty close to Claremore and Owasso and lots of people commute back and forth.

But I wouldn't know anything about any of that. You know, knowing people that live in all those places and having lived here more than 30 years.

I'd think to really go "off the grid" in NE Oklahoma to any great degree you are looking at Adair county. Maybe that ranchland area between Bartlesville and Vinita. But if you aren't in the Tulsa area up there you are getting close to the NW Arkansas metro area. I suppose there are some off the beaten path areas in Osage Co still.

There are probably some other isolated spots but they aren't terribly remote.

I suppose it depends on ones definition of "metro area". If you were to go by this map that is indeed a pretty good chunk of NE OK, although there's still plenty of space left between the Tulsa metro and NW Arkansas. As someone who's driven through there more times than I can count I must say I never imagined the Tulsa metro was as big as this map portrays.

Much of those counties to the east of the Tulsa metro are within 30-60 miles of Fayetteville and the Fayetteville MSA covers all the way to the Oklahoma border. That is kind of a weird area because it seems remote but it really isn't far from same decent sized areas.
