UM Boys Ranch
We left the COE park across Tenkiller Lake yesterday. The Ranger came around on Tuesday and said we had to clear out by 4 pm on Wednesday as the gate would be closed due to the shutdown of Federal Parks. No problem we would travel the TEN MILES to our next destination one day early.
We arrived here around 9:00 am
This facility sits right on Tenkiller Lake.
It is about 6 miles north of the town of Gore up a winding narrow road.
After getting settled we met the Director Larry and another group of NOMADS who are currently volunteering at another Circle of Care facility on Tahlaguah, OK. He was taking them on a tour of this facility. But before that we were all treated to lunch. Two of the couples will also be working this project starting Monday.
Today we rode into town just to look around and post some mail. That winding narrow road from Gore to the Ranch is going through a change. All the way down the mountain they are widening the road. It will greatly improve the trip.
This sign was put out while we were gone.
Three couples arrive with their rigs tomorrow, another couple on Saturday. As Team Leaders we meet with the Director tomorrow morning to get our walking orders! We are ready for a great three weeks.
I love this area and would gladly live in this area if not for the tornadoes. That is a big deal breaker!
