Well, we are all up in arms out in Cimarron about the new trails the mule deer are taking as a by-pass from Philmont to Ted Turner's ranch.  They transit my land all the time and aren't even paying toll.

It's scandalous I tell you!


Sounds like a cook out event is imminent... some good eating there.


We have a herd of about 15 to 20 deer that run across our place out north.  And a couple of very good sized Hackberry trees perfect for a tree stand...er, uh,...playhouse for the grandkids...!  When I get the new freezer, it's gonna be put to good use.  And reduce the protein costs dramatically.

I don’t share my thoughts because I think it will change the minds of people who think differently.  I share my thoughts to show the people who already think like me that they are not alone.

Quote
The Oklahoma Supreme Court on Wednesday approved the issuance of up to $125 million in revenue bonds to help fund construction of the Gilcrease Expressway turnpike in the Tulsa area.

No legal protests were filed with the court, justices noted.

The five-mile, four-lane road construction project will link Interstate 44 with U.S. 412 and complete the western loop around the Tulsa metro area.

God I hate the Tulsa World.

So I have to go to Newsok.com to finishing reading an article at the Tulsa World site about a new Turnpike IN TULSA, but I can't finish the article because I subscribe to the World and not to the Oklahoman.  So what is the point of the Tulsa World even existing, much less me paying for it?

I was always waiting for them to turn Highway 75 between Tulsa and B'ville into a turnpike. Talk about a missed opportunity for a cash cow.

While I hate the practice of turnpikes and agree that this is overall a waste, I am selfishly a little excited because it potentially opens up new real estate/development opportunities on this side of town closer to me. West Tulsa has struggled for a long time to attract any kind of decent development action. Most of the good real estate off of I244 is awkward or taken up by railroads and industry. I think the area where this will go over 41st could become a new retail corridor of some kind, which will in turn boost the area around it, and perhaps help out Red Fork a bit.

So is this just this leg and doesn’t include connecting it to the existing highway north of 412?
