It was a really really nice place to unwind, but I think they would have objected if I'd just stayed there and hooked up my computer!
Sound to me it would be the best place to live, no phones, no electric, no TV, just yourself and Mom Nature .

It wasn't quite that primitive, there was electricity and running water - but it was also in a cell dead zone. I'm not a TV person, but I do like my phone and internet! And there were coyotes, lots of them, singing every night.

I think the OKC crowd might know the answer Cindy, we are about 90 minutes east of OKC, so we don't keep track of new businesses.

Around here if you get a clear view of a coyote, you shoot'm, quick it open season on them year around.
But it still sounds like my kinda place, small and out of the way .

I like hearing the coyotes sing.

But I doubt if the average person would know a coyote if they saw it, they'd be more likely to think it was a german shepherd cross. The easiest way to tell is if they want to make friends with your little dog or would rather eat it, unless it happens to be a female in heat. And there are coy-dog crosses everywhere in this country, even in NYC. It's an excellent reason to have one's own dogs spayed or neutered - if it's a male dog, it won't be tempted to follow a female coyote in heat and find itself turned into lunch. Same goes for some wolves, though they are a lot more shy of where people live.

Coyotes are not nearly as large as wolves, so most good sized dogs would have nothing to worry about right? I think the largest ones (in Oklahoma) would weigh in at 35 pounds or so. I do know in the Northern states they get up to nearly 80 pounds, which is HUGE, but in Oklahoma are they that big of a concern for your average Lab or other large dog?
