Hello, I am a new Elkridge owner and would like to come to rally. We live in Conroe, just up the road, and have been to Rayford Resort. It's an awesome park. What do I need to do?

Hi Bill,

Welcome to the Heartland Owners Forum and Family. We have a great bunch of people here with lots of information and all willing to share their knowledge if needed.

Jay will add you to the list, but you need to call the park to make your reservations. Be sure and tell them you are with the Heartland Owners Group.

Enjoy the forum and your new Elkridge.

If we make it, I'll probably have to go to work one of the days. What is the cost to stay there? I went to the website, but the account is temporarily suspended for some reason.

If we can't stay, can we come and meet everyone? We wouldn't have to being the new trailer unless anyone wanted to check out the new cyclone

Brett

jayc
02-05-2011, 06:48 PM
Brett,
I believe the rally rate is $33 per night. We would love to see the new Cyclone but if you've got to work we'll take good care of it for you. You can just drop in if that is all you can do because of work. Just let us know what you can do.

rustyshakelford
02-05-2011, 07:10 PM
I work for 24 hrs on the 15th. Ill talk to my wife and see if she would want to come and stay the 16/17. should be fun. This might be our first real time taking it out somewhere other than the drive home from Indiana. Hopefully we can get all the bugs worked out prior to coming so we dont look like the rookies of the group!

Ill talk to her sometime tonight and will call to make tenative reservations on sunday or monday. worse case would be us swinging by in the truck to meet and greet

Thanks

This may be a dumb question, but what is the deal on this (or any other Heartland) rally? I am not a member of any owners club, but have been a Heartland owner for almost a year and have enjoyed and learned from this forum for a while now. Does one need to be a member to attend this or any other rally. I'm in San Angelo and might be able to attend. Thanks for any info. Mike Finnegan

jayc
02-06-2011, 04:48 PM
Hi Mike,
First of all, there are no dumb questions, but to explain about the rallies, you don't need to be a member to attend a rally, although there are other values with joining the club. Click HERE (//heartlandowners.org/showthread.php/7705-BENEFITS-Click-here-for-a-list-of-club-benefits) for more info. If you can come, call the park and make a reservation at 281 298-8008 and I will sign you up here. We will be having a potluck dinner on Saturday evening. It's a chance to meet with other Heartland owners and have a great time.

Hope you can make it.

Thanks for the info. We are looking forward to it, so sign me up (Mike and Peg Finnegan, San Angelo, TX). We are not full timers, but will be coming in from Bastrop State Park Friday (15th) morning or early afternoon. I'll make my reservations in the morning (right now it is Super Bowl time).

Jim and Ginger got in touch with me and they will be attending the rally with us.

I also got some good news today that our friend Joe French is now working at the Ron Hoover RV dealership in Katy. He will be attending the rally and will be bringing a new Landmark and either a Cyclone or Road Warrior to show us. He is also planning to bring one of his techs to do minor repairs here in the park.

Ok, Jay I talked to the DW and we may be bringing that new KeyLargo for you to check out, hehe. I'll know more soon but I'd say go ahead and put us down for showing up. I'll have to call this week and set it in stone. Glenda's checking out the resort website and is sitting over there ooooh'ing and ahhh'ing so I'm thinking done deal.

jbeletti
03-13-2011, 05:03 AM
JD and Glenda,

You'll love Rayford Crossing. One of the best campgrounds I've been too. Nice place, friendly people. Of course, the rally is the big star here though. Jay and Stella are pros at putting them on. Treat yourself to a nice weekend and show off that new Key Largo!

Jim

Hi Jay,,, Please put us down for the rally. I thought I had told you already,,, but either my great mind is slipping :) or yours is, one or the other.:).. We will be arriving on Thursday, 14th and leaving on Sunday, 17th. Park did not give us a site number.

Jim,
I remember that we talked about it in Kerrville. Probably what happened is that you sent me a message and somehow Linuxkid let it get lost, so I never got it. Thats gotta be it, it certainly couldn't be one of our great minds. Yeah, thats it, we blame it on the computer guy.

Hey Jay. Dennis and Joyce Young here. Not sure if we can make the rally....our truck was stolen on Mar 7th and recovered on the 11th and is now in the body shop. Talked to them yesterday and they said 2-3 weeks to finish. Right down to the wire. I noticed you still have several spots open so last minute trip should be possible??? We will keep you posted. Dennis

jayc
03-22-2011, 09:52 AM
Dennis, we still have plenty of spaces left. I'll have to release what is left on the 1st of April but you can call the park to make late reservations. Here's hoping that you will get your truck back in time to come.

plumberdude
03-27-2011, 07:15 PM

We will actually, be at Rayford on April the 7th and staying till after the rally. Believe it or Not!

See you all soon

Jay,

I will not be attending the Rally, I had to cancel my reservation because of another project I committed to assist has been postponed and conflicts with the Rally. I hope Carol and I will be able to attend the Rally in Canton. See you in June at the North American Rally.

Did I read somewhere that there would be technicians there to work on our units? I have a few very slight warranty issues that need to be addressed. I have an appointment the following week at Lone Star RV Sales where I bought my unit, but if I can get it fixed at the rally that would be great.
Thanks, Bill

jayc
04-01-2011, 09:57 AM
Hey Bill,
Yes, Ron Hoover RV is sending a technician to the park to minor repairs and adjustments. Please call Joe French at the dealership-281-829-1560 and he will let you know what they can handlde. Also, if you will need a part they can have it on hand.

WILBOLT
04-01-2011, 11:41 AM
Thanks for the info Jay. Will they do warranty work? It is all minor. My rig is less than 1 year old.
Bill

jayc
04-01-2011, 11:57 AM
Yes Bill, they do warranty work-within reason-in the field and will do small repairs and adjustments whether in warranty or not. It is best to call first and furnish your VIN so the warranty claim can be made and parts ordered if necessary.

jayc
04-01-2011, 09:02 PM
Well, I've got good news and bad. The good news is that Petty Detailing has agreed to do washes of our rigs for $79 if we get 8 or more rigs.

The bad news is that I must cut the registration off and return the remaining sites to the park. This does not mean that you cannot sign up, it only means that if you need to make your registration with the park and tell them you're with the Heartland group to be put with the rest of the group.

We still have plenty of sites left, so come on down!

TXBobcat
04-05-2011, 12:27 AM
Well it is one week until the Gathering... We have been stuck in Melissa, TX since November. We are ready to Roll.

We plan to be there on Monday 11th in the afternoon. Jay get the coffee pot started. We are looking forward to getting started.

BTW I will take a wash job when we get there. That is a good price.

See ya there.

I spoke with Joe French at Ron Hoover RV this afternoon. He will be bringing a Landmark San Antonio if he has one in stock by rally time and another model that is to be determined. They don't carry the Bighorn line so we won't have one on display.

Joe also agreed to pick up the tab for a barbecue dinner and I am working on getting that done with our local restaurant with the "best barbecue in the Woodlands).

Yeh Bob, we've had a couple of potluck breakfasts. Everyone loves them. Just bring a dish to share. Coffee and juice will be furnished.

I'm with Bob in being new to potluck breakfasts and am trying to figure out what kinds of dishes one might bring to a breakfast since a lot of that stuff is usually prepared a little at a time. I imagine something like sos and bisquits might fill the bill . . . or maybe a pan full of sausage. Any suggestions would be helpful. Thanks, Mike

jayc
04-06-2011, 02:03 PM
All that sounds good Mike. I'll start a list here and anyone else that wants to sign up to bring a dish will be added.

1. Jay & Stella-scrambled eggs & sausage
2. Mike & Peg-SOS & biscuits
3. Jaime-breakfast tacos

04-06-2011, 05:55 PM
If the repairs aren't too extensive, we hope they'll have it ready for you.

They shouldn't be. I filled our freshwater tank before going to hunstville two weeks ago and when we hit the road we were sloshing water all over the place. I called Joe French to see if his tech could fix some other little things and when I brought this up he said I should get it in asap in case the water is damaging components. My money is on a fill hose that came loose but who knows!

Brett

jayc
04-06-2011, 06:04 PM
Thats good news. I'm sure that Joe will get if fixed if he can.

I heard from Bill Sims today and sadly, he and Ornell and Peanut the "Devil Dog" won't be able to make it. It will be the first rally they have missed. We'll have to eat some barbecue for them.

Hey Bill,
We are planning for a fun rally Since everyone that will be arriving on Friday will be there at different times, everyone is on their own for Friday night supper. We are having a potluck breakfast on Saturday morning at 9AM. Just bring a breakfast dish (serving for 4-6 people) of your choice to share with others. Saturday lunch is on your own, and Saturday night's supper will be a barbecue dinner furnished by Ron Hoover RV of Katy, who is sponsoring our rally. They will have a couple of trailers for us to look at on Friday and Saturday. There will be door prizes after the dinner.

Our rallies are a great chance to meet other Heartland owners and visit. Normally we would have a campfire at night but because of the drought and very dry conditions, we are under a burn ban. We will have access to the rally halls, so we can meet there and play games or just hang out.

We will bring, asparagus & prosciutto casserole for the breakfast.

Help!!! Coming from Baton Rouge Google Maps say take Hardy Toll Rd. How much is Toll? Or Should i go a little farer in take I-45 North ? Leaving Friday A.M. Oh Yeah put Connie n I in Sat. breakfast.. Pontratoula Strawberries!! Hmmmm Thanks....

I never take the toll rd with the rv. It is only a short hop over to the interstate. Get in the right lane and stay there as it is only a few miles to the rayford exit.

Kenny, that sounds good. Gonna be hard to wait until Saturday morning.

Bill, they're already starting to show up, so the fun is just beginning.

Bikerbob, you can do either one. I think that there are two and not more than three toll booths on the Hardy, so I would think the cost would be around $10. I have an EZ tag and don't really pay attention to the toll costs. Sometimes they charge for the trailer, sometimes not. If you go through the booth, they will charge. Kenny is right, its not much further to I-45.

We almost weren't going to make it, I had to take the truck in last Fri. to the Ford dealership and it wasn't going to be done in time. I got a call tonight at 4:30 saying their lead tech was staying late and it will be ready at 8am tomorrow morning, talk about cutting it close.
Gotta run to the RV dealer and pick up the trailer as well, rush back here load it up and get on the road. It's been a crazy week.

04-14-2011, 10:19 PM
Just so everyone knows, Jimtoo bought the mexican food tonight. I guess it's all the money that those moderators make.

JD & Glenda, we'll be looking for you tomorrow. Hope the rest of the trip goes better, or with less stress.

They just delivered two Heartland Landmarks to the rally by Ron Hoover RV, parked and opened up for tours and inspections. Two really nice looking units. I think they both will sell before the rally is over.

Well,,, what a great time we had at the rally and I'm sure by everyone. Jay and Stella did an outstanding job putting it all together. Thanks to Ron Hoover RV and Joe French for the dinner and door prizes, also to their tech that did a lot of work on the units. Thanks also for providing 2 new Landmarks for everyone to visit and look at.,,,, hope they sold a couple.

We met and made new friends,, got to see old friends and just visit. Visited other folks units and saw their mods and just compared upgrades, mods and units.

All in all,,, a great RALLY. Looking forward to the next one. Hope to see a lot of the folks in Goshen.

Also,, Thanks for all the Birthday wishes..

tillie, Lin & I usually are able to make that rally but we had to miss it this year. We wish we could have met all the newcomers. We've always had a great time in the past. Jay & Stella and crew do a heck of a job. Glad you had a good time.

Thanks everyone for the kind words. We had a great time and are glad that everyone else did too. We enjoyed meeting the new folks and of course, seeing our old friends too. We missed Ray and Lin and several other "regulars" and hope to see everyone in Canton TX in October. We will see many in Goshen and can't wait to go there. Got the trailer serviced yesterday, and it will only be about three weeks 'til we leave here.

We just would like to add our thanks to everybody responsible for setting up and orchestrating the rally with a special thanks to Jay and Stella. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves (even though it is probably going to cost me some big bucks for an upgraded rig) and enjoyed the activities and conversations with everyone. Pleasant and safe journeys to all and we may see you in Canton. Mike and Peg Finnegan

Oh Jimtoo did bring some gruel - in the form of Blue Aguave Tequelia. To say it was smooth was an understatement. The only thing that surpassed the Blue Aguave was Jay and Stella's management of this rally - FANTASTIC !

Those that did not show up really missed something.....................

For those at the rally, "did you hear my uncle zeke died?"
for those not at the rally, you should have been here, it was really funny. We did a skit about, uncle zeke, it was awesome. Thanks to terry & sylvia hix for putting it together.
Uncle zeke died with his mouth awry, with one eye shut, with his left leg held high, waving good bye! So long uncle zeke, till next time.

We had a great time thanks to Jay and Stella! For those of you who don't know we were the family that never left! We got to spend a few extra day's with Jay and Stella and had a blast!!!

See you all in Oct!

We're glad that everyone had a good time and made it home safely. Pat and Lori, we're especially glad that you made it home through all the fires in Texas and the high winds.

Just for information, Jaime and his family left the park today. His dad is recovering well and may be released either late this afternoon or tomorrow.

Hi All,,,, Jay I was just going to ask about Jamie's Dad,,, Thanks for the update.

Now...I guess I really need to talk to Terry and Sylvia,,, may need to get them down to our George West Storyfest (http://www.georgeweststoryfest.org/) the first Saturday in November which is November 5.

Yep,, I heard he had a wife,,, but she left him at the RV park when his mouth went awry and his eye started closing...she knew something was happening... So everyone be on the lookout for Zeke's wife. :)

Yes,,, Thanks Bob for the great pictures...but I did not see any of Uncle Zeke. Oh well.. maybe next year another Uncle will be there... you never know.

Kenny...I don't see the extra 20...just looks like you. :) Or maybe Bob has a magnifying camera lens instead of telephoto...That's what it is... I'll bet on it..just makes things look bigger....:)

Hey Jay............
Guess what - we got a new member to our family- pictures below..........................
That Key Largo is something else. About two weeks of repacking all the "stuff" we took out of the BigHorn and things might get back to normal. Safe travels to you.
