110% agree with that.
I'm big into sports and I assume if i go to local bars and watch games or any sporting event is it easy to get a conversation going with people? I love sports so that's probably the people I'd like to associate with. Going to the lakes near by and such too.

By having the kind, good personality, out going etc makes it feel like the Tulsa area for the most part is quite safe minus the low income areas.

Reason for the move is a friend wants to as well and by moving with a friend it would make the move easier imo. Also we want to experience something different and see what kind of opportunities we can find. Tulsa with all of it's sports close by and a few hours away makes that area sound like a good spot for us. Lakes close by and the ozarks as well. Yeah I know there's winter there but nothing like here...hell at 20-30 degrees here I'm still wearing shorts. The only thing that will take some getting use to is the heat, is it really humid there or more of a dry heat? The apartments we've looked at all have pools so that would help with the heat.

It's humid in the spring but as the real heat comes in it dries out. This summer was very atypical with the months of 100 degree weather.

Having been to ND one thing that you will have be prepared for is that for good or bad Tulsa is a much larger city than anything in the Dakotas.

If you like hot weather you'll like it here. I hate this damned climate. But yes, if you're into sports you'll be coming to the right place. I'm in a bummer mood, and am reminded of the things that get on my nerves about this place. Not trying to be pessimistic.

Sports and hot weather? you'll love it. Mountains, snow, mild summers and clear streams? Nope, best not come to OK. We have squat little post oaks and rolling hills out the wazoo.........or the plains, the flat, flat plains, LOL. All beautiful in its own way.

ND_Sav,

If you are outgoing, love sports (especially college football), and enjoy lakes....well, you might just find your paradise when you come to Oklahoma.

Welcome and we look forward to having you in the Sooner State.

Eastern OK has pretty forested hills, clear streams, and lakes. And the climate has 4 seasons, it is not always hot like this crazy summer.

Still staying way off subject here but I have been working and living just south of Wheeling WV. And that area is a lot like Oklahoma where regions come together and there is not really a distinctive identity. I read somewhere just the other day and it may have been on Wikipedia where Pittsburgh has an identity complex. Because of its Appalachian connection some say it has a kind of Southern feel, but its also a huge manufacturing city some what like a you would see in the Midwest but yet its just 90 miles South of the Canadian border so it has a North east feel too.

Back on subject Tulsa is a great place to live. With my job I can live where ever I want and I love living in Tulsa and NE Oklahoma. I get real home sick for Tulsa when I am away from home months at a time. To me Tulsa is a Goldielocks town just right.
