Keith, I wish that I had more for you but I live 325 to 350 miles south. My 2003 MTFCI membership directory doesn't list any T club owners in Wichita Falls, but that was 14 years ago. There are probably members by now.

City website lists museums and auto racing as area attractions, but that is all the help that I can give. Plenty of oil wells, tumbleweeds, and rattlesnakes, though.

Yep I was born in Wichita Falls, raised in Burkburnett. Oil wells, tumbleweeds, and rattlesnakes.....one thing he missed- it's DEAD CENTER of TORNADO ALLEY!

You're right about the tornadoes, Gary. Anything east of the Texas-New Mexico border in North Texas, Oklahoma, and other central plains states are in the bulls eye. In recent years, the Southeast US has become included in the alley.

Yesterday and the day before we had serious thunder, lightning, torrential downpours, and tornado warnings. Today it is sunny and clear.

Tomorrow we go to Dallas. Before we go home we'll see Dealey plaza, and the book depository...

Besides the Wichita Mountains 40 miles north at Lawton, Oklahoma and the barbed wire fences there's NOTHING between Burkburnett, Texas and CANADA. When a Blue Norther rolls in the word COLD cannot describe it. During the summer I've seen 107 at 6am and 111 at 11pm. But as a native-born son of the Republic of Texas I can testify to you all IT IS GOD'S COUNTRY!!!
