Didn't take the RV, but I did trace the route as close as possible on my motorcycle and camping along the way from what is now Jackboro, Tx to Colony, Ok.. My 2 great grandfather had moved his family to this area back when it was still mostly Indian territory. They were one of three families that basically settled this area before the Civil War and are mentioned often in a book about the early beginnings titled "They Came To Stay". When my grandfather was 3, his father (my great grandfather) moved his family to the Indian territory which became the State of Oklahoma before the "Great Runs" in a covered wagon sometime around 1890. He was a founding member of the Seger group that established one of the first Native American Agricultural and Technical Education schools in the Oklahoma territory. What original was called Seger Colony, became Colony, Ok.. The family homestead is still in the family. I actually camped one night in the vicinity where they crossed the Red River. It was a strange feeling. because when they got to the Red River, my great grandfather and his eldest son crossed the river with the livestock, leaving my great grandmother and the younger children on the Texas side. A nor'wester moved in before they could cross back over and it rained for 3 days flooding the Red River. My great grandmother and the 3 youngest children were trapped on the Texas side for a week before the waters receded enough for my great grandfather and his son to get back across to get them. The really amazing thing is my grandfather moved to Oklahoma in a covered wagon, grew up there, worked and fought in WWI with many of the Native Americans from the School, and raised a family.......my father was a Director in the Space Program and my grandfather lived long enough to see all of the Apollo Program flights and the first Shuttle launch and landing in person. Now that is an amazing life line if you ask me.
