Fanfare For The Common Man by catch---22 Fanfare For The Common Man by catch---22
surely there are few such fanfares as grand as the time of the prairie schooners. there were no roads... no central heat and air... no running water... no internet even. hopeful souls loaded these wagons with what possessions and supplies that would fit and journeyed over this land counting on their wits to carry themselves through to a better life. this is located a few miles east of Chickasha, Oklahoma on the south side of HW-9 (35.043628,-97.839432) where the crosstimbers begin to turn to prairie. I always loved that this points west. it seems proper.
