BLOG: 6's & 7'S
For those of you who have been following my journey from Las Vegas to Oklahoma, I know you have heard the saga of 'looking for a place to live, but no-one wants my dog'. Well, not everyone in Oklahoma is a dogist. In fact, at Salt Creek Lodge, DeeDee is not only welcome, but she now thinks she owns the place. Look at that smile. My dog is happy.
And I think, instead of this being a short term place to stay while we try to find a house, we may just stay here for awhile. I know we'll be here at least until May.
What's it like staying at a lodge? A little slice of heaven...
I have a huge covered front porch with a handmade porch swing and rockers so I can watch the goings on of the ATV riders and hunters. And it is perfect for sitting in and watching the storms roll in. Or, I have a huge wraparound back porch that overlooks 1800 acres of ….acres. LOL. And Bigfoot lives out there.
The lodge itself has eight rooms, half are bedrooms with full baths, half are more bunkhouse style rooms with large sleeping quarters and kitchens. Each is themed and you can tell the room by the little decorations in the hallway. There’s a cowboy room, a Duck Dynasty room, etc. I live in the Birds Nest. The lodge sleeps about 30 total when full.
There is an amazing event barn on the property that is ideal for weddings, family reunions and any sort of gathering you can imagine. I imagine a writers’ conference with book readings (30 writers, so we can fill the lodge, too!) But there are so many different things that the barn is rented out for.
So I made a little slide show below so you could see what I'm talking about. So check it out, and then come visit! DeeDee can show you around.
For those of you that have been following my most recent journey, I am now in Idabel, Oklahoma, Dogwood capitol of the world (or something like that), living at a hunting lodge because I can't find a rental house that will take my dog. Too bad for them, great for me, because the lodge I am staying at is amazing. In fact, I intend to do several videos over the next few months to show everyone how fantastic this place is, and to encourage you to visit.
BUT FIRST! I have to tell you about my first big adventure here, BIGFOOT hunting. And I made a video.
So watch the video for NEVER BEFORE SEEN FOOTAGE! and then visit the website at Salt Creek Lodge. Give Jana Jeffcoat a call and come visit the lodge. We'll go hunt Bigfoot.
