Gene, we do have the 911 numbers, but the mail still uses the RR addresses
in some of the very small towns.

What's wrong with OK. Even MS has 911 statewide and they are last in most
everything.
But it hasn't been that long. I still have an old mailing list that has RR
numbers on it. It's been more than a year since they changed over so they
won't forward the mail.
My little old home town of Rush Springs changed in the last year or so. OK
can easily set up 911 addresses everywhere. The roads already have numbers
assigned by the USGS many years ago. That is what Rush Springs used mostly.
They've been used in Tulsa for years. I wish they were used statewide. My
mapping program shows the numbers the USGS gave the roads.
