I need to keep going north on 97.  The problem with most roads around skiatook lake is they're gravel.

What I have done in the past is use Google Maps (or MapQuest) to find the "squiggly line" road candidates, then plot a possible route and preview drive it in my daily driver to see what condition the roads are in.

I usually have a main plan and a couple alternates in case the main route turns out to have gravel/dirt roads or too rough of pavement.

The truck has been all over the area searching squiggly line roads.  So far have 3 decent spots, though fairly short sections.

Count us (2) in on the BBQ wrenching/drives. I hope to bring our 73 saloon and the 63 pup. The 73 needs at least a new floor but rather have you look at it for the rest. The pup at least a respray. Do you have room to park the Beast (F250 and a long trailer? What direction from Tulsa is your shop? I will get in touch with Midtown Minis to see where some of their drives are in or around Tulsa.

Very good! North of Tulsa 30 minutes in Ramona.  There should be room for a truck and trailer.
