A Brief History of Oklahoma
- The area that ultimately became Oklahoma was first formed into Unorganized Territory (somewhat ironically) and was pretty much ignored by the United States until 1889 (Oklahoma was where many of the displaced Native Americans from the southern U.S., particularly Florida, were relocated to). In 1889 the U.S. passed the Indian Appropriations Act which opened up settlement of the territory of Oklahoma, and believe it or not there was actually a race for the best lots – people from across the country lined up along the border and waited for the official announcement that they could begin to settle the area, and then rushed into the state. Many cities in Oklahoma today were born on April 22, 1889, and the state’s nickname – the Sooner State – comes from this period (people who entered the border before the official time were called sooners, as they entered the new territory too soon).

What to Expect when Shipping to or from Oklahoma
- The state of Oklahoma is not terribly popular when it comes to transporting vehicles in or out of it, but several major interstates run do run through the state which makes it a bit easier and cheaper to ship to or from major metro areas of Oklahoma. Perhaps the easiest city to transport a vehicle to or from in Oklahoma is Oklahoma City, due to the fact that it is the largest city in the state with a decent-sized metropolitan area and no less than three interstates run through it. I-40 is easily the most popular of them, as it runs east-west across almost the entire United States, and it connects with both I-35 (a major north-south interstate that services the interior of the Midwest north of Texas) and I-44 (a smaller interstate that runs from northern Texas through Oklahoma City and Tulsa up to Saint Louis, Missouri). Carrier availability will usually be a bit lower than if you were shipping from a more populated state, though the interstates bring carriers into and around various cities in Oklahoma all the time, so the wait should not be extensive.
