Just go to a good liquor store such as Midtown Liquor in Tulsa for a huge variety of real beer. It's not inconvenient. Convenience store beer tastes like brewed cardboard water anyway, 5.0 or 3.2.

You won't find much a difference in rural Oklahoma vs. rural Alabama aside from the scenery. You might have a tough time finding work in rural Oklahoma right now though as many of the small communities rely on the energy business in one way or another. Tulsa and OKC are both nice cities and you can typically find work if you look hard enough. Just depends on what you are looking for.

Check out Durant in Southern and slightly Eastern Oklahoma. It is not energy dependent for jobs as Tulsa and OKC are as well as a number of smaller towns in that part of Oklahoma. Durant is more like Dallas economically as it has manufacturing operations who transport products through the Dallas area logistics system. It also has a casino which is advertised as the closest to Dallas. A new steel recycling operation to convert scrap into rebar is being built to open mid 2017. Durant has enough trade with Dallas it is part of the extended Dallas Fort Worth Standard metropolitan statistics area.


Its slightly warmer than the northern parts of the state and close to the more scenic SE area of the state wih **** older ranges of mountains or what one might call major hills. There is plenty of water in that part of the state as well. Lake Texoma is 10 miles from Durant, it is a large recreational lake with 1100 miles of shore line.

Durant is not a bad option either and is often forgotten. As long as my Choctaws are in that area the economy should be fine and Durant has cleaned up many of the "eye sores" of run down buildings over the years.

I wouldn't move to DooRant for Lake Texoma, however. There's just too many Texans on that lake. I've always preferred Lake Murray to Lake Texoma.

Because this is a conversation among adults, not a lesson plan in grade school. Real conversations work that way ....

Well, thank you Annemieke for explaining it to me. All these years I've thought it was for the reason I stated! Didn't realize I was following the pattern of an elementary lesson plan, since I've never seen one. I will try to improve myself so as to live up to your higher standards! Apologies for my ignorance! I know I need help, so keep your eye out for any more of my mistakes.

Poor OP wondering why all they talk about is beer in Oklahoma. There will be some differences between Alabama and Oklahoma, notably the football rivalry, but it shouldn't be too different. You might not think OK is very southern though even though it kind of is. Definetly has the western/Midwest/southern mix heavily toward the southern in the eastern half, and western in the western half. Hope you enjoy Oklahoma!
