Ronnie Oldham
Living at the Painted Desert, Arizona

My college roommate, Kenny Odell, was living at the Painted Desert Oasis when I left Denton.  The PDO consisted of a restaurant, gift shop, gas station, and ranger station.  Kenny had worked there when he was younger and after he left OBU, he went to work there again.  With Kenny's help, I was able to get a job there too.  I worked as a cook and pumping gas.  Trailer houses were provided for the workers, but we had to go into Holbrook for groceries and supplies.  I spent quite a lot of time out in the desert and did a few road trips to the Navaho reservation.  Met some great folks and had a good time, but after a couple of months I decided to return to Shawnee and go to work in the oil field with another longtime friend, Chris Hilditch.  A few years later, I helped my brother get a job at PDO.
