Back to Where it All Began

We started our television journey on a rusty bridge outside of Sapulpa, Oklahoma. That bridge, and the bumpy stretch of concrete leading west, is part of a very old roadway that predates Route 66. That first episode, originally aired April 2010 on OETA, introduced viewers across Oklahoma to us, our show and our unique approach to documenting life off the beaten path. 

So it seemed only fitting that our first stop on a new project would begin with a little known network of trails and backroads... and that rusty bridge over Rock Creek. 

Our new project is known as Forgotten Highways and our first documentary will be about the historic Ozark Trail.

Before Route 66 became America's Main Street there were several private efforts to cobble together cross-country highways. One of these was organized by the Ozark Trail Association and stretched from St Louis, Missouri to Las Vegas, New Mexico. Much of this road would later become Route 66, which has prompted some to call the Ozark Trail the "Mother of the Mother Road."

The Trail was marked by unusual stone pyramids. Only seven of these obelisks remain. The story of this road is a uniquely American tale of ingenuity, showmanship and greed that, at times, verges on bizarre. It's a story not many know about, and one that's well worth telling!

We are using Kickstarter to fund this project. Kickstarter has been around a few years now and has helped millions of people fund creative projects, unique products and great ideas.

The best part is you don't just pledge money. You become part of the project. Normally, these are funded by large companies that hold an interest in the product. Instead, we are letting the people take responsibility for getting it made or not.

To show our appreciation we offer you special recognition. Depending the amount you pledge we offer you exclusive content, bonus DVDs or even producer credit. Take a look, share it with your friends, tell everybody you know and pledge now!

The Indian Nations Rally Returns

There's going to be a bunch of motorcyclists converging on Greenleaf State Park this June. The event is called the Indian Nations Rally and it will be held June 7-9, 2013 at the Group Camp overlooking Greenleaf Lake.

If you have seen our third show (Episode 3: OK-10) you might remember the park, and more specifically the Group Camp area and its WPA era lodge.

Redbud Valley Road

Local Ride
When you only have time for a quickie.Do you have a favorite ride you'd like to share? Contact us for details on how to share your Local Ride.

One of my favorite nearby rides is found on the northeast edge of Tulsa near Catoosa. This ride is short, it's not an endurance test or kneedragger excursion. It’s only a few miles long but it offers some great scenery to enjoy– on and off your bike.

The locals call it Redbud Valley Road and it begins as 161st East Avenue north of I-44. The fun doesn't really start until you pass Pine Street and cross what used to be a notoriously rugged railroad crossing. About three miles later you'll make a sharp right and begin meandering along Bird Creek and the farmland outside Catoosa. Eventually you’ll pop out on OK-167 (which must be one of the shortest state highways in America) just north of the Hard Rock Casino.

Motorcycle Safety Classes

The Oklahoma Highway Patrol and Department of Transportation are offering free motorcycle safe riding courses. These classes will be offered throughout the year at locations across the state- and are free! But space is limited to only 30 riders for each class.

Please note this course is not intended for learning to ride a motorcycle- in fact you must already have an "M" endorsement to participate!
