A few years ago My family went to Oklahoma for a Family Reunion. we stayed in a small town Called Gans, Most of my Granny and Grandad's family was or is from that area,
They lived in the towns of Redland, Muldro, Gans, and a few others in the south east corner of the state, My cousin April, and her husband Bryant is were Our family stayed at there home right along the Arkansas river, from there back yard you can see the Kerr resivor Dam, Just beautiful at night. There were almost 100 Family members that attended from the area. I got to see cousin's and Aunt's, Uncles, and all the New family that I had never met I got to meet Bryant's Family and Friends, It was a great time We played some Basketball in there new Gym, We fished at Danny Wayne's cow ponds. They are stocked with Bass and are easy to catch. We all flew in and out of Sallisaw in my aunt Panola's Private plane, When we were landing on that Tiny air strip It was Sooo Cool, Cause I was sitting in the copilot seat. I cant wait till the next time we go to OKlahoma, It will be a Great time And hopefully this time I will get to meet the Big Guy!
If you're in Tulsa try Woolaroc near Bartlesville. BillW--if you were near Sallisaw and Kerr Reservoir, you were in some of the prettiest areas in the US. I also think everyone should see the Talimena Skyline Drive. Here is a link, with a few pictures.
Thats a beautiful place Hooksetter, thanks! We are planning another trip May of 09
Hopfully this time we can make it to Tenkiller lake and over to the Fort Smith area There is Family there also. I miss the Fireflys they are so cool!
