I was in Tulsa through the weekend and yesterday for meetings. I work in a business that requires travel all over the nation, and I was blown away at the kindness of people in Tulsa. I've never seen anything like it. It was start to finish: airport, hotel, restaurants, business interaction, running interaction, and even just getting gasoline ($2.40 a gallon?!?!). Really cool out and back trail on a river for my long run yesterday- really enjoyable place. I'm an East Coast native, and regret all the times that I made fun of Oklahoma. I suppose I had to experience it to appreciate it. Hats off, Okies.
Anyone else with similar experiences in underhyped areas in the nation?
