If your goal is to avoid high wind, usually evening or morning time the wind will be lighter. When I plan my trips, I will take the forecasted wind speed/direction into consideration and then plan accordingly.

"Oklahoma, - where the wind comes sweeping down the plains" Even R & H knew about it!!!

We lived near Tulsa 2 times and the roads were bad back then and they are no better now. It is mind boggling that roads can be built and maintained so poorly.

We are near Tulsa for the summer. All I can recommend is slow down and protect your RV.

As for the wind, it is Oklahoma and the wind blows. If it is very windy, we just stay off the road for a day or two. Driving in the wind is tiring and dangerous with any high profile vehicle.

Tulsa streets and the surrounding highways and Interstates have been under construction for at least 30 years and show no sign of completion. And whatever ain't under construction/destruction, should be. :cool:

Just came thru OK from KS to TX. As we came across the state line I did not have to see the state sign telling we were entering or leaving OK. It was obvious. Rt 69 from TX to I-44 is worse yet. Over 50 stoplights too.

We expect winds in WY.

Just sayin', the anvil blew off into Nebraska...

But there was a day in 1957 when the wind stopped blowing for a couple minutes and every one in the state fell over while leaning to the west.
