    I'd consider that if I wasn't here. Life in the panhandle sounds unique.

    Either Guymon or McAllen, Texas, is the opening posted on here the most, it seems.

    If you draw a map of nowhere, and put a pin in the middle, that's the Oklahoma panhandle.

    Yep, as my daddy used to say, there ain't nuthin' out there, and there's a whole lot of it.

    You've never been to Wyoming, have you? It makes Guymon seem like a metropolis by comparison.

    I've driven through Wyoming and was praying hard that my car didn't break down (it didn't) because no one was around for miles and miles.

    Actually, I've been to Wyoming. Some beautiful country up there. I wouldn't want to live there, though.

    I'd swear this is about the 10th time Guymon's been looking for an SE in the past five or six years. There has to be a lot more wrong there than just the isolation.

    Well, it's a CNHI property in a small town. Plenty of red flags.

    Not currently. Horizon Publications bought it years ago.

    Yeah well it's what, about 50 miles across? You can be in Nowhere, Texas, Colo., or Kan., in little time.

    Which panhandle has more going on, Texas or Okie?

    Definitely Texas, if only because of Amarillo.
