Mike was working at Myers-Duren Harley-Davidson, so our next stop after Waco was Tulsa. We chose Warrior RV Park because it was fairly close to the dealership, had good reviews, and was reasonably priced. $28 a day included a pull-through site with full hook-ups and a grassy strip with a picnic table.
Warrior RV Park has 38 pull-throughs with 30- or 50-amp service and concrete pads that are 8 feet by 15 feet. There are also 17 back-in spots with 30-amp service. There’s a dumpster on the back side for trash along with a larger grassy area for walking the dogs. The highway runs next to the park, so it can be loud. Our rig’s insulation kept the road noise to minimum when we were inside. A bathroom/laundry building is roughly in the center of the park. The park has decent free Wi-Fi and a ridiculously large selection of free cable channels. We especially appreciated the propane tank on property because we wanted to have plenty of propane as we headed out to Milwaukee.
My memories of our stay in Tulsa will always be bittersweet. We had to say goodbye to our Charlie kitty while we were there. He developed a saddle thrombus in the afternoon on January 14th that cut off the blood supply to his legs. Mike was able to leave work early, bringing the Jeep with him, and we took Charlie to a vet Mike’s students had recommended. The vet and his assistant were very kind, but there was nothing they could do to save our boy. Since Charlie was 23 years old, we knew his time was going to come soon. It still broke our hearts, though, to have to let him go. He was with me for half my life, and he’s irreplaceable.
When I learned that the wife of the couple that owns the park rescues cats, I gave her Charlie’s leftover food and made sure to buy a chocolate bar that she sells for fundraising. I rescued Charlie all those years ago, and it made me feel good to help someone else trying to do the same.
