Hooker, Oklahoma

Here’s a video we shot while driving through Hooker, Oklahoma.  I blogged about Hooker before, but I wanted to include this video because it gives a sense of a small, dusty town on the plains.  This is shortly before we went to the Hooker Chamber of Commerce of buy naughty Hooker-themed t-shirts, which we were happy to do because they made nice souvenirs and also helped support the local economy.  It certainly had a different feel than the previous video of Peabody, Kansas.  On the way back we had several conversations where we talked about our regret about not driving off of bigger roads like 50 and 142 and trying to see communities that existed off the beaten path; unfortunately, I’m afraid that some of them only exist on the map or in the memories of their former inhabitants.  Still, the people were so incredibly kind and friendly.
