Orange Barrels

Video James McVay

How many times have you been on a trip and there is so much construction that all you want to do is kick one of the orange barrels forcing you over to one lane?  Scott and I have been in this situation so many times and I have decided it must be Oklahoma’s state tree.  Our friend Interstate 411 sent us this video and we just had to share it with you all.  Cracked me up!  The song is Orange Barrels by Orange Barrels by Heywood Banks of the Bob & Tom Show.  Enjoy!

In 2016 Scott and I visited Waco Mammoth National Monument in Waco, Texas. This is the site where a large deposit of Mammoth fossils was discovered.  In 2015 President Obama signed this National Monument into place. but this site had been discovered in 1978. How lucky we are to have a city who believed the history was important enough to preserve this area.  Ever wonder about the Mammoth? View the video and find out more.

I hate tent camping so Scott decided we needed to try out hammock camping. Unfortunately, many state and national parks do not allow you to attach your hammock to trees. Plus there are many parks that do not have any trees to attach your hammock to. So, what are we supposed to do? Scott found hammock stands at a big box outdoor store but did not like the price so he decided to find out how to build some.

Living on Tulsa Time

Video by Ren of Stitch’n Travel.

Much like the lyrics from David Bowie’s song Changes, Scott and I are definitely getting older and finding ourselves having to make changes. But we have found that we are not the only ones, Tulsa has changed as well. No longer is it the same city we once desperately tried to escape, but it is a place where we can find culture, friendship, and a home.

And Now For Something Completely Different

Video by Ren of Stitch’n Travel.

Scott and I have taken so many videos, but not much of it gets up on our YouTube channel. We are finding out that when you take hours and hours of video, there is bound to be many outtakes. These are some of the ones we have collected over the past year. Please enjoy and have a giggle on us!

Time For Something Beautiful

Video by Angie of Lost Girl Hikes

One of the things I love about this getting out and meeting people is I meet some amazing people.  One day on the lakeshore of Meridian State Park we met Angie. She was taking photos and doing video. She does some of the most amazing drone videos and this is one of her most recent. You can find her YouTube channel here:  lost girl hikes.

Drive Oklahoma 412

Video by Interstate 411 & Stitch’n Travel

Drive America’s Highways for 34 miles east along US-412 Alternate from Locust Grove to Kansas in Oklahoma. We start the video following US-412 east just before the junction with the Cherokee Turnpike and US-412 Alternate. Turning left at the fork, we merge onto U.S. Highway 412 Alternate (formerly Scenic 412) where we pass through the community of Sams Corner before reaching Locust Grove and the intersection with OK-82.

Post Travel Depression

Video by Ren of Stitch’n Travel.

Do you find yourself sad after a vacation? Are you angry because you have to go in to an office after spending a week out among the giant Redwood? Do you feel sick as you think about the daily mind numbing chores you had to come back to after a six day visit to an exotic beach? If so, you are one of the many who suffer from Post Travel Depression. Here is how you deal with it.

Drive the Talimena Scenic Drive

Video by Interstate 411 & Stitch’n Travel

In partnership with Stich’n Travel, we start the video turning north onto Arkansas Highway 88 from U.S. Highway 71 in Mena, Arkansas. Continuing generally northwest, we enter the Ouachita National Forest as the road ascends to the top of the ridgeline and approaches Queen Wilhelmina State Park — just past Rich Mountain.
