Hello , The Campground is very nice as some have said !! Woodall's give it a 5 / 5 and Trailer Life gives it 10 / 9.5 * / 9.5 . The sites that we have blocked out for the group are mainly pull though sites and are in the Poplar Village area , if you would like to refer back to the CG map. Greg & Beth

Unfortunately, (but good for us) that is the weekend we are headed out for our Alaska cruise for 12 days!! We're really excited about it. The sister and brother-in-law you met at our rally in Pa are also going with us...so we know we're going to have a great time! Are you going to Deb's rally in May? We will see you there, and at ours in June!

The campground will hold your information on file. If you need to cancel for any reason, you have up to 2 days before the event to do so and there will be no cost to you. If you cancel after the 2 days, they will charge a fee of 1 nights camping. We are working on having 2 Heartland Dealers w/model campers, Factory Rep , t-shirts, a pot luck supper,ect .

We are attending the first NJ Rally in May in Cape May and the PA Rally in June in New Holland. Maybe we will see you there!


We hope your winter is safe and that spring comes early !! Hope to see you in August.

Hey Greg & Beth,

Right now it is our intention to join your first ever NY Heartland Suarez. We need to tighten up a few loose ends and then I'm sure we'll be able to commit.

Being a "Born & Bred" Syracusan I feel it is my duty to attend the NY rally.

Greg & Beth,

We are planning to attend but have to wait until my boss decides on his vacation weeks. We can make it in a weekend but it would be rough without additional time off. I'm confident that we will be ok but need to wait until I know for sure. Keep your fingers crossed!

Beth, Just got back from Herkimer KOA. Found it to be a very nice campground. Since it was opening weekend, they were not quite prepared--cable was not working and bath/showers did not seem to be heated. I would just suggest not setting anything up for this campground until they have been open for awhile and get everything up and running. Other than the weather, everything went well with our new Big Country. Very glad we got the fireplace. It was pretty darned cold this weekend.

Freckles
04-22-2010, 07:42 PM
Pat and Bob ,

Thank you for the follow up regarding Herkimer KOA . We welcome any info for future sites for up coming Rally locations !! Glad to here the fireplace took the chill off in that new Big Country.

Gus, that will be a good thing, as this addiction is spreading fast (I think Deb and John Bylinski are also afflicted). The cure I believe is in going to more rally's.:confused: Could there be a diagnosis for such a thing as a "rally fulltimer"?:p

Well, guys, after going on a 'recon' mission with Greg and Beth yesterday, we've signed up for the rally. We'll be on Site # 418. This is an awesome venue. Sites are large, paved with lots of grassy, treed area between them. Public buildings are immaculate. You'll really feel pampered here. The Deans have planned a great rally so sign up, join us and enjoy the weekend. See you then. BTW, Mike and Ann --- come on up. You'll be glad you did.

Tom & Jane it was great meeting you two at the CG Thursday night. Thanks for signing up !! were glad we twisted Tom's arm a little bit but don't think we needed too . After looking at the CG we are even more excited about our event !!

For those that are Heartland owners that are on the fence talk with your better half and sign up it’s going to be a great time at one of the best CG in NY !! Watch for our updates soon.

Yee Haw!! Batten down the hatches and secure all your valuables! Looks like a Cyclone will be blowing up from South Central PA & hitting the NY Rally afterall!! She'll be leaving after work on Thursday, blow on up the I-81 corridor and is expected to roll into the Rally sometime Friday morning! (She's a considerate storm and doesn't wish to wake the neighbors so late at night.)

Nona forgot to get a site number so we'll get back to you on that one. She does want to purchase 2 XL shirts to commemorate this significant event, though!

I totally 100% agree - a vacation is SO needed on this end. Usually for our summer vacation, we'll head 12 - 20 hours away. A trip of less than 4 hours will seem like we never left home lol.

As a side note, I passed a Heartland Sundance this afternoon. So that makes two Heartland's I've EVER seen on the road besides myself lol.

Momma always told me to be careful what you wish for. Cancelling the cruise cause I just couldn't miss Greg and Beth's first rally. Nah, not true... haven't officially cancelled but it's going to happen. I am gimpy these days and will be really gimpy after knee surgery on Thursday. When Greg mentioned that I won't lose my deposit if I cancel the campground within 48 hours I thought I'd just go ahead and reserve and then if I'm really not up to the trip I will know that within the time for cancelling.

I hate weekends when I am recovering...they go on forever...so I am hoping a trip to NY will be do-able. No weight bearing on my left leg....gonna be in a big knee immobilizer (butt to ankle)...so that doesn't make for some easy traveling...but we shall see...

We'll bring a dessert to the rally (we had to do that in Nashville) because I am not really up to cooking...that way you won't miss it if we aren't able to come!

Funny you mention that - we were at the Pigeon Forge, TN KOA (nice place btw) and met fellow campers at the pool. We talked to them for over an hour and had a great time. The next day they walked past our site and saw our license plates and gasped: "OH MY GAWD - you're from NEW YORK!!". I said: "yesssss, why?" and they replied "but you're so NICE and you're from NY". I asked them what they pictured NY like and they said crime and skyscrapers. So trucknutt I totally agree with you, there's NYC and then there's NY STATE... 2 totally different worlds.

Hey Greg - tried sending you this message but your mailbox is full.

I was really hoping to make the NY gig as well as going right to Kingston. Just wasn't in the cards - a week later and we could do it.

I really tried to take advantage of the Trail Air Level Up during our Nashville trip but the stars just would not line up. I have an appointment next Tuesday in Goshen and won't be back in time to make your rally. - Next year though - as long as you pick the weekend soon enough.

Some of these things are tough for me. I have great vacation and some flexibility with work, but I have to pick my vacation the 1st week of December for the following year. Makes it tough top plan sometimes.

I'm sure it will be great and sorry we will miss it.

I used the NYS Thruway Toll Calculator (http://www.thruway.ny.gov/tolls/calc/index.html)and came up with $4.25 cash/$4.04 EZ Pass. Take I-81 North to I-481 East (Exit 16A). At exit 6 Take the Thruway to Exit 33 (Verona,Rome, Oneida).

I entered a 4 axle vehicle over 7 feet 6 inches tall.

When I use the toll roads in New York with ezpass, I always go thru the toll booth with a person inside. New York automatic booths will charge you the 18 wheeler rate due to the height. Go thru the booth with a person and stop and say "RV" and they will type into the system the correct charge.

Glad to hear that everyone is having a good time and we were really disappointed that we could not make it but we figured that if we were to cancel our next 3 trips we will have the $$$ to put new Michelin's on the Horn. Today I had an estimate on the repair of the trailer , $1258. So now we have to wait to see if the tire manufacture is going to pay for the repair and if not then we will turn it over to our insurance co .

We have arrived home safe but we hit tons of traffic on the thruway headed into the city.

We had another great time and want to thank Greg and Beth for the awesome job they did. We are hoping to see some of you again in the coming weeks in VA, PA or NC. Thanks again and well see ya soon.

We arrived home also around noon-ish, unloaded & put away most. Cannot wait for another rally we're able to go to. Had such a great time at our first, plus being the first for NY. Great bunch of folks, almost like family!-) Special thanks again to Beth & Greg and all the cooks, and anyone else involved in the organization of this rally--super job done. Hope to see y'all next year or maybe before. Haven't got much more vacation time, except what I put in for already. Enjoy the rest of the year everyone!

We arrived home safe and sound around 4:30, lots of traffic at the 81/80 interchange and got caught in a "volume slow down to a crawl" thingy that took about a hour to creep through. A Big Horn and Cyclone caught up to us on 81 and we had a nice caravan going on until they took off and left me in the dust :) :) hey guys I can't drive that fast in the rain!!

Anyway again it was a super time and Greg and Beth did just a great job and boy can the Heartland Owners cook!!!

Thanks again to the hosts and look forward to seeing everyone soon at the next gathering.

Greg & Beth...

Where to start... This was our 1st Rally... and we really enjoyed ourselves... You did an awesome job... We had no idea what to expect, but we are sold... and looking forward to attending more rallies in the future. Everyone really made us feel so welcome...

We really look forward to camping with this crew again (if you will have us...)

Thanks to Greg and Beth for all their hard work... and thanks to everyone else for making us part of the group.

Just in case any of you are wondering - we DID NOT find our owner's plaque on the way home :( ---- Guess I'd better get in touch with Heartland and find out how to get another. Bummer ---

Kathy if ya wanna run with the big boys... LOL Well we actually detoured off 81 onto 309 South because the GPS and truckers were telling us to due to "severe traffic ahead". We lost about 45 minutes and ended up going through Hazelton... next time we travel together we'll need to make sure we plan it ahead of time... you'll need a CB or walkie talkie at the least.

TXBob, great meeting you and I'll take a print of the bench for framing. Too bad we didn't see any butt cracks though...that would've REALLY said it all! Great meeting you and Pat...and Trevor is a great pup!

Beth and Greg, again, thanks. That was a very high bar you set. We had a great time and if I couldn't go on the cruise, I'm glad I could make it to your rally!!! Now get busy planning next years!! HAHA

Hi, Everyone!

I had such a great time at the rally I had to come home & get my own forum ID! Thanks to everyone for making us so welcome. We had a great time & met so many new friends. That was our first rally, but definitely not our last!

Beth & Greg, thanks so much for all the work you did for this rally! You pulled off a great one!

Thanks again, everyone. We are looking forward to seeing you again!

Hey all!

Thanks to all for making these past few days full of fun and relaxation... A special thanks to Greg & Beth for a job well done! I would also like to thank everyone for treating my family very well, at first I was worried being the only one with a baby at the rally, but I am glad she could make people smile...

WOW...What a great weekend we had. We could'nt ask for better weather or better friends to hang out with!! It was great to see old freinds again and make new ones. A Big THANK YOU to everyone who attended. Lots of helping hands definately made hosting our first rally easy.

Three new members were added to our growing Heartland Family during our rally. Don & Karen, Loren & Joanne and John & Gayle. Welcome, get ready for a whole lot of fun and lifetime freindships!!

We had so much fun we are already planning next years rally. Save the dates October 7-9, 2011 (Columbus Day weekend). Look for our new event posting very soon. We can't wait to do it all over again. (We miss everyone already)

Also, don't forget about the mini-rally this October 8-10 (Columbus day weekend) at Twin Grove Park KOA, Pine Grove PA. We signed up today...see you there.

Sure enough--I'd recognize Don who's in the middle with the belt & white socks & Merrill's--toooooo funny!! Great pic! To all the guys that talked about the U-Bolts being loose--we checked & ours needed tightening a little also--thanks for the great info all weekend! Not sure yet if we can make the mini rally in October, but would like to. Will let know later.

Hey all!

Well TXBobcat pulled out this morning around 9:30 so now we're the only Ralliers left... The place was empty for a while but it amazes me how quickly the sites are re-filled. An ElkRidge 5er is now across the street from us, I wonder if they have any idea of all the Heartland fun they just missed by a couple days lol...

Well Greg I told you it would be a good rally. Patti and I had a great time with a great group of Heartlanders. Beth and Greg you did a fantastic job on your first rally and next year will be even better and only about 3 hours from me. WE are now at Wellsley Island State Park in the Thousand Islands. We will be going to The Ontario rally in Kingston on thursday. I just seen that we are the only rig repersenting the U.S.A. Some of you New Yorkers should take a drive this week end its close by.

Nice chatting with you this morning Cheryl, using Comet Chat (bottom of each forum page). I have the 2011 NY rally dates on my 2011 calendar. No promises though as this is very near when I expect that we will be closing on our TN home. But if I do make it, I am putting in my request for chocolate birthday cake :)

Boy, that sure is one NICE North Country in that last pic LOL!!

When the balloon passed overhead we were in the camper trying to get the baby to take a nap. Then we heard the several loud WHOOOOOSHES and headed outside to investigate, since nap time was now a no-go lol. I managed to get a quick pic with my cell but yours came out much nicer.
