Welcome aboard Nathan and Byrd. If you need anything from the Great State of Texas, just let me know.

10-31-2010, 10:11 AM
Thanks to all of ya'll. If it wasn't for the kindness and friendliness of all of ya'll at the past rallies we had attended, we might not have even thought of doing this. We'll be picking all of ya'll minds in the future (haha).
Happy RVing everyone.

10-31-2010, 12:54 PM
That's awesome! Congratulations Nathan & Byrd.

10-31-2010, 12:57 PM
Congratulations Nathan & Byrd !

Welcome to the ever growing Heartland family tree. We look forward to attending some of the future Tenn Chapter events. Tenn is a state we always are drawn too when our thoughts turn to one day planting roots again in a permanent residence. Tennessee is a Beautiful part of the country!

10-31-2010, 03:10 PM
Congrats Nathan and Byrd;
Great to have you aboard. Wish I could give you some sage advice but I'm pretty new myself. What I can tell you is everyone is great and will help if needed. If you get winter weary there in Tennessee, Florida is a great place to visit.

Just wanted to say "hey" and let you know we will be looking forward to meeting you and
being part of any Tennessee events. Being in Roanoke, VA we are very close to your state
and have enjoyed camping there many times.

10-31-2010, 05:18 PM
Thank ya'll
Marv & Karen - I can agree - Tennessee is a pretty good place to live and a beautiful state. Would love to have you try to come down for a rally next year.
Jim & Harriet - we would love to have ya'll come down for a rally. Roanoke isn't that far away (if I remember correctly - about 5 hours from our house) so something in the eastern part should be pretty e-z for ya'll.
Mickey and Bonnie - we have traveled many times to Florida around Thanksgiving for family reunions and alway bring the rig. We are anywhere from Jacksonville down to Jupiter, depending on which family members are hosting the reunion. Good luck with the Florida chapter!

10-31-2010, 05:23 PM
Hi Nathan and Byrd....greetings from PA...Home of the Steelers, Eagles, Phillies, and Hershey Chocolate! Welcome to the club! You'll have a great time!

10-31-2010, 05:29 PM
Thanks Cheryl - yes Love Hershey but you forgot Gettysburg. Would go back there in a skinny instance.

10-31-2010, 05:29 PM
Congrats to the both of you. Look forward to seeing you at a future event.
Lee & Linda

10-31-2010, 05:42 PM
Congratulations - it's about time you signed up! Look forward to the first TN rally!

10-31-2010, 05:51 PM
Nathan and Byrd congrats and welcome aboard.........

10-31-2010, 06:44 PM
Thank you Linda and Lee - oh by the way, did ya'll decide on which coach?
Thanks Gus and Debra - can't wait to pick ya'll brain. We're looking at mid summer somewhere before or after NE rally.
Thanks Bernie and Karen

10-31-2010, 09:31 PM
Congratulations Byrd and Nathan and much luck. We know you will be a natural at this, especially with all of Byrd's BSA experience.

Welcome to the group from the left coast!

11-02-2010, 12:39 PM
Thanks for stepping up for our own chapter in TN. We've got your back on the west end. Looking forward to meeting ya'll.

11-02-2010, 02:54 PM
Hi there,
We are going back and forth between the Augusta, and the Big Horn. The Augusta has everything that we want, and to add it to the Big Horn we would be at the Augusta price. First we have to finish getting the floor back in the Sundance which we should be done in 1 more day. The floor in the Sundance rotted out in front of the couch and dining room table. It was a mess, but I have just about finished with it. Then we are going to trade it. We are going full time as soon as the house sells and need a better rig. One with a washer and dryer and 4 door fridge along with level ease and at this stage a very large bar..

11-02-2010, 06:29 PM
Thank you all, Bobby & Linda, Mark & Kristy and Ann & Mike, for the vote of confidence. Hope we can live up to it. Lee, I know it's a hard decision but good luck deciding between 2 great rigs.

11-07-2010, 06:37 AM
Congrats Nathan and Byrd. Looks like Mr. Beletti caught us on the same trot line; at least according to JimToo. As your neighboring chapter to the south (Mississippi), we look forward to sharing participation in rallies and get togethers. We love the beautiful state of Tennessee for enjoying the outdoors. I will be looking to you for input on how you organize and grow your chapter. Again congrats; any chance you will be in Tampa in January for the show and Florida chapter meet and greet?

11-07-2010, 09:47 AM
Hogan -no, probably not to Tampa but congratulation to both of you for stepping forward and being Mississippi's Chapter Leader. We are looking at doing a rally in 2012 somewhere in the middle to western part of the state but unfortunately, we are not real knowledgable with that part of the state so maybe we can pick ya'll brain for suggestions.
Not sure about Tampa RV show. With both of us still working, getting time off can be tricky but we are checking to see how we can make it work.
Anywho - congrats again.

11-07-2010, 04:56 PM
Welcome to the family!!

11-07-2010, 07:11 PM
Thanks Dave and Nona - We have our first rally planned in 2011 in Townsend, Tn. If ya'll up in the area the first week of August, come on over. The Smoky Mountains is a great place to visit and of course, we would love to have ya'll with us.

11-10-2010, 05:45 PM
Hi Nathan and Byrd, Thank You very much for Volunteering as Chapter Leaders here in Tennessee. We are a little over three years with Heartland and attended the Nashville Rally for our 1st and only rally. We had a great time and appreciate even more our having a Heartland product. We do enjoy the Smokey's and if our travels permit then we will be happy to attend. Looking forward to all the news, etc. I trust that our being at the other end of the state will not keep us from joining you when and where ever.
Thanks again,
Pat & Marcia Weaver

11-10-2010, 08:47 PM
Thanks Pat & Marcia - we are excited about developing the Chapter here in Tennessee. Knowing that you are 5-6 hours away can make a difference in whether to attend or not and we know the problem because Nathan & I still both work and trying to work around the paying hours can be hard. Since TN is such a funny shape, we are planning on moving the rallies from one end to the other. With that said, if you can't make it this time, hang tight, we should be in your neck of the woods soon. If you have any suggestions, please feel free to contact us thru the private messaging system here on the forum.

10-19-2011, 09:23 PM
Hello Tennessee Chapter - we hope to attend the next rally in Tennessee. We'll check back to see what you have planned for 2012. Enjoy the fall and beautiful camping weather.

10-20-2011, 07:22 PM
We hope to see you soon at the next TN/KY rally. Things are in the works for (hopefully) a spring rally in the western TN area. Keep watching for upcoming information.
