We’re gearing up at okc.net to head down to South By Southwest this year, a crazy adventure that’s sure to be a blast. We’re pretty busy getting things ready for the big trek, but we have great reads in store for you!
In the meantime, how’s abouts we take a trip back to the early days of our favorite column to syndicate, Oklahoma Dispatch? Austin Tackett, Lacey Dillard, and Lindsay Vidrine started up their blog last year around the same time as okc.net, a serendipitous turn of events for all of us interested in writing about and photographing life around Oklahoma. This isn’t the usual day we post their work, but I thought it would be a good way to inspire some other travelers this week to get out and about around the state. It’s spring break, y’all! Even if it’s just for the day, why not take a trip?
Stay tuned this coming week as we report to you from the road about our experiences down in Texas. Along with our OKC-based content, we’ll also have SXSW interviews, stories, a steady microblog feed through our twitter account, and other zany extras we hope you’ll enjoy. Keep in touch with us on our facebook page, or drop us a line through the emailz! And check out the post just below this one to see one of Oklahoma Dispatch’s very first recorded trips – Okmulgee and Dripping Springs State Park. Enjoy, folks! I hope you can make it out to your favorite place this week, or somewhere entirely new.
