Sounds very nice actually. Winter sure can be tough in NW OK though.

I've been to Alva before and unlike towns in the southeastern part of the state, doesn't look as run down looking. Also the west end of Alva has an impressive, wide sweeping view of the horizon that you're not going to see from Oklahoma towns entrenched in a valley, such as Stillwater. But Alva is too far from the bigger, settled parts of Oklahoma for me. Enid, being considerably bigger and a considerably shorter drive to Oklahoma City would be a better place to live in northwestern Oklahoma as I see it.

Grove. Since you've already seen an old thread about it, my guess is that my answer is the same now as it was then. It really is a pretty area.

Eddie, I know what you mean about Poteau. The town itself was sort of rundown, but the scenery around there is very nice.

The far eastern border of the state, I think, is home to at least 13 Native American tribes. It is a place where it is: very hilly, very mountainous, very scenic, and very difficult to grow grass. It is filled with what nature provides, and its one of the prettiest places on earth that is unfettered by rush hour traffic and hordes of dense population.
