    Just got back awhile ago.
    Had a pretty good time except for the part where some girl stole my phone.
    I got a new one and was able to change all my passwords so she couldn't do anything.
    But all my pics and vids are lost.
    One thing is certain......karma is on it's its way.

    Not an Okie, and where I grew up was full of decent, hardworking people rather than the shady that Heltershelton was talking about, but still I nearly died of bored. Took me till 20 to totally take leave, but did so as soon as I could.

    Lawton is just plum full of shady people.
    I think it's even worse that it used to be.
    I was going to go there when I was ready to kick the bucket but I think I've changed my mind.

    You should kick the bucket among good people, bro. But do it like, a long time from now.

    Was this a move or just a visit?

    My dad spent his later childhood there in the 1930s. WWII got him the hell out of Lawton and Oklahoma.

    I was stationed at Ft Sill (OCS) in 1967-68, before going to Vietnam. The old downtown had over 50 bars and was nicknamed "the impact area." There were more hookers than Las Vegas and it was pretty wild. Vietnam was mild, by comparison.

    I had a band when I was around 16 and we would open for them when they came up to Lawton at this place called hard roxx. We used to play the show then go somewhere and either go fishing or have firecracker wars. This was right after they came out with power metal.

    Most of my family is in OK, either Tulsa or OKC. Nothing good there for me, never has been. Last time I was there was 2011 when my oldest brother passed away.
