Ya but that highway is pretty dangerous. Tahlequah is a college town. so It gets pretty trecherous during the school year. You know how us kids drive. I get my permit in 9 days so watch out...im on the road
I travel that road occationally in a semi. There is only a couple places that you can pass safely. When I exit off 412 onto 82 so. I just try to realize it is going to take a while to get on down to Tahliqua. I usually just go with the flow and enjoy the scenery. Sorry about the loss of your friend.
I've driven that road at least a million times (family lives in that area). That specific part of the highway was A LOT worse before they put in those two new bridges & straightened the road in that area. Definitely agree with going with the flow & enjoying the scenery.
