As I recall, one of the actors had such a great time making that movie he ended up buying and keeping the horse he rode in it.

That was a great movie. Jack Palance was spectacular.

I don't have loads of dough, but I have heard to hold some savings, as front-end expenses and early mistakes can be costly.

I hope I don't run into the crazy/know it all man from Central California. I get the sense that he is an anomoly, and a good example of what not to do. Fortuately, I have enough knowledge to know that I don't know a great deal about OK or rural life, and I have no problem asking for advice and taking things slowly. I'll let you know if I run screaming when I get there, or, more likely, if I realize that this seems like a great, albeit major life shift. brad
Just remember, OK life is laid back and alittle behind time. It's not the fast lane like CA. So you'll have plenty of time to correct mistake and the people here are happy to help.

I'm from SoCal myself, Just get on RT 66 and it takes you striaght to OKC

Man, that is true. I spent the summer in D.C. and I felt like my head was going to explode from the hustle and bustle. I'm busy when I'm working but in slow, peaceful mode when I'm not.

No culture shock since we had lived on the farm before. Actually our first "little farm of 2 acres" was even further in the sticks (in Alabama) than this one.

Do not move to washington county, oklahoma.. The sheriff's office there stinks. If you get on their radar for anything they will harrass you for life.
