Chisholm Trail Heritage Center

Part of our reason for wandering around the country is that we are trying to figure out where we want to live. We have been staying in Oklahoma near Chickasha for the last few weeks and today we visited the Chisholm Trail Heritage Center. I enjoy spending several weeks in one area because it gives me a more complete view of the area than just spending a day or two.

Every area we have visited has had its own unique culture…and of course we always find horses everywhere we go. All of this travel was supposed to make this decision easier but I’m afraid its making it harder.

    Stacy, Consider beautiful North Alabama for your home. It has a 4 seasons climate, Good interstate (I-20, I-85 & I-65) for travel to Atlanta, Charlotte, Nashville, Memphis, Birmingham, Montgomery, the Gulf Coast and westward to Texas and Oklahoma. There are plenty of horse people and good vets and a great vet school (Auburn)  Taxes are low and  property is reasonably priced. For higher education there are many good Universities and Colleges (UA, Auburn, Troy, UAB). I your motorhome needs attention you can take it to TIFFIN in Red Bay Ala. They also build some of the most beautiful and reliable motorhomes on the road (ref Motorhome Comparison Guide by Randall Eaton). I hope you will consider Alabama. South Alabama ain’t bad either. I live near Montgomery and am a transplant from N.C. I flew airplanes for the USAF and retired here.

    Hi Stacy, I think you need to consider if you like mountains, flat lands, economy, weather, and crime rate. Me I like the mountains. Good luck.

    Hmmm, Stacy, have you been to Spokane, Washington yet? I’m a former Californian and I will tell you hands down that Spokane is the best place to live! In my family’s eyes, of course. 🙂 Warm/hot summers but not unbearable, cold and snowy winters, wonderful springs, U-pick farms, hundreds of miles of equine trails and a great agricultural feel/background. I never want to leave here. 🙂

      We have heard wonderful things about Washington and Idaho and have plans to visit in the future. Being from Maine is seems a bit far away, but I’m still willing to look!
