I was instantly at peace as soon as I stepped out of the truck. I've been telling everyone that I found my heaven on earth and never wanted to leave! Thank you for keeping the ranch open to the public! I enjoyed my quick trip and look forward to hosting our Christmas Event there, I can't wait to see it all done up in Holiday splendor!


From david kendall on 08/17/2012

enjoyed ur wonderful flyin last Sunday. That and PBS documentary on Will Rogers caused me to dream I wuz at the ranch and WR himself appeared asking visitors to create a special Oologah chorus for tune to America. Came up ...Oologah fair Oologah, God shed His Grace on thee, and guard our land and Indian band from a fate like Wounded Knee! My family, who took me wheelchair and all to the flyin as a surprise tho't this wuz absolutely hilarious. Maybe you'll get a chuckle too. Thx for all you, David
