    Default Jenks OK?

    Anyone from the area of Jenks OK? We may have a chance to move-DH may get a job transfer-there and I would appreciate any info you may have BEFORE we make the decision. Thanks for any and all input, both positive and negative.

    Not contributing anything useful - I just wanted to pop in and say when I read the thread title I wondered who Jenks was and why it was we were wondering if he was ok.

    It made me laugh.

    I don't live there, but in it's favor I would say - it is truly warmer than Wisconsin. There are cowboys nearby. Oklahoma City isn't that far away. There are many wonderful activities around, and I personally love Oklahoma. You are currently about 600 miles from Hamilton, and Jenks is only about 315 miles away. Win-win, I'd say. Plus you'd only be a couple hundred miles from Branson, MO and there's lots of entertainment there.
    Sometimes, when there's a raging fire,
    it's best not to try to put it out with gasoline.

    My husband and I both grew up in the Oklahoma City area but moved away in 1974. It would be my first choice for where to move when he retires but not his. I think it's a great place.

    I used to live in Bartlesville about 4 years ago. Jenks is a nice town. They have a really nice aquarium. It's got both big town and country areas close to the grocery etc

    My husband was born in Oklahoma but his family is mostly in KS. The only thing I see and think about OK are the tornadoes we see on the Canadian weather channel. Not certain where in OK Jenks is, but if I moved to KS or wind tunnel, I would build a shelter.

    Enjoy life and do what makes you happy. Everything else will follow.

    Every day I try to do one thing that challenges my comfort zone.

    It's a suburb of Tulsa, so it's not terribly remote. I have a friend that lives in Ponca City and loves it. Good weather.
