Where in Oklahoma did you visit? I live in the Cherokee Outlet area. The last & greatest land run was held here. Over 100,000 settlers raced to claim their piece of 7 million acres of land here in 1893. The land run had become way too dangerous as a form of land distribution and so lotteries and auctions became the form of determining land ownership. What a sight it would have been to see.

Don't be afraid that your life will end, be afraid that it will never begin.
