Additional Info:

This is an informal get together of HL friends some of whom are attending the South Carolina Rally in Charleston. Everyone is welcome! Some of us are traveling North after the rally and will most likely have to winterize upon our return home. This means the end of the camping season for us so we are trying to squeeze in a few extra moments with friends!

We will be departing Charleston on Monday following the rally and heading to Willow Tree Resort where we will stay until it's time to head North on Saturday (11/12).


SunCruz Casino Cruise will sail at 11:00am and return to dock 4:15pm. Click HERE (http://www.suncruzcasino.com/myrtlebeach/) to see their web page.The dock is a 15 mile drive from Willow Tree. We are waiting to decide on the day to sail until we can look for the best weather and sailing condition possible. Kevin Wolbeck has stepped up to handle the cruise coordinating.

Willowtree after the SC rally sounds like a great idea for those that can make it. We don't know at this time if we can make the SC rally, so we have not yet registered for the Oak Plantation event. Here's hoping we can end up doing both of these!Happy camping!Jim

Sorry we can't make the camp-out but here's another great place to eat. We love eating in Calabash, NC (just right up the road from Longs) at Dockside Seafood. It's right on the intercoastal waterway. There's another restuarant next door called Capt. Dick's which is an older established eating joint but we don't think the foods as good. Ya'll have fun.

Nathan & Byrd we are sorry that you can't be with us but you know you are welcome if your plans change! Thanks for the restaurant tips. We had a lengthy discussion about Dick's while at the DC Rally. The place sounds very interesting and entertaining from what I hear!

We ate at Capt. Dicks in 2005. It was decent but would love to try an even better place. Thanks for the referral :) We "hope" to make it to this rally.

Here is an online description of Dick's in Barefoot Landing.

Dicks Last ResortAmerican Restaurant in Barefoot Landing
Unique restaurant at Barefoot Landing in North Myrtle Beach with a unusual theme: The wait staff insults the guests, makes custom "hats" for each patron to wear, and generally keeps its diners laughing throughout their meal. Not suited for people without a healthy sense of humor.

Sounds like a fun place and Mark & Lucia have been there and they said it was soooooo funny!

As a side note 2 of us are registered on premium "Hot Tub" sites so I can see our days lasting late into the evening! November, RVing, Friends, Hot Tubs and Cold Ones!!!! Now that's what I'm talkin' about!!

Just a thought. I was wondering if anyone would be interested in going on a casino boat cruise. It is about 10 miles from the campground. The fee is $10 and the buffet is $10. If we get enough we will qualify for a group discount. Here is a link (http://www.suncruzcasino.com/) to their website.

Leslie and I are set up to join the group in Willow Tree! We are arriving on sunday, 6 Nov, and departing on Saturday, 12 Nov. We have a hot tub site, and the rest of the amenities sound great!

Jim and I are planning to be there. Just made the reservation with Willow Tree. The projection on finishing our house is now mid to end-Nov.

dbylinski
09-13-2011, 01:36 PM
Wow, very cool Nancy & Jim. I am going to try to call Willow Tree today and see if we can get a group discount or how many rigs are necessary for a discount. We may just qualify or close to it!

dbylinski
09-13-2011, 01:55 PM
Just spoke to Willow Tree and a group is ten rigs or more so I think we'll qualify for a 10% discount on the site rates. Anyone calling please mention Heartland Owners Club so they can log you in with the group. We have no actual group section so site assignments may be spead out some. I am also trying to get their hall for our Thanksgiving Dinner one evening but I have to call back for that. I'll keep you posted!

We, unfortunately, are probably not going to be able to be there now. I had to use over 80 hours of vacation/sick leave due to my recent hospitilization and just don't have any vacation time left now. I still have the reservation in case we can work something out, but it doesn't look good.

We are going to set sail on Wednesday 11/9 on the SunCruz Casino Cruise. Dock is 15 miles from Willow Tree. Cost is $20.00 per person for boarding and buffet!

Here is a link to the SunCruz Site (http://www.suncruzcasino.com/myrtlebeach/).

Tried to post something this a.m. to let you know we will be there, but the wifi gizmo didn't get it out for some reason. So, to restate, we'll be checking in on the 7th and leaving on the 12th. Our site is #26. And, I'm sure Flash will want to do the gambling cruz thingee. I'll just wander around the boat looking for a cold beer? Imagine that? :eek:

Dick

We are very happy to have you and "Flash" with us on the cruise! I'll be seated at a slot machine next to her and you and John seated at the bar! It will be fun I'm sure.

We can qualify for a group rate on the cruise with 10 or more passengers so we'll give that a go! I am waiting for a return call from the group reservations department. I also noticed that Wednesday is 55+ Day on their web page. If we go on Wednesday all passengers 55 and over board and eat "FREE"! If this promotion continues into November we will plan for Wednesday so all y'all can watch me pay!!!

Please add Nancy and I to the cruise list. Can't eat free, so Nancy will have to get lucky at the slots to pay for my meal :)

I have obtained and posted the information for the SunCruz Casion excursion. Click HERE (//heartlandowners.org/showthread.php/26153-EVENT-Heartland-Owners-Camp-Out-SC-Longs-11-7-2011-to-11-12-2011?p=194530&viewfull=1#post194530) to go to the first post in this thread to view these flyers. The price for groups per person is $25.00 p/p. In addition we are trying to work out shuttle transportation to and from the ship so no one has to drive. I'll keep you posted as I gain more info from the group sales department. It is difficult working through email and we are now assigned a group representative so I'll be able to talk and get our questions answered. If you have any questions or concerns about the cruise please post them so I can pass them on to the SunCruz staff.

Well, well, well. Wouldn't make sense to drive back to Va Beach from Charleston without stopping at Willow Tree. Our reservations are made for site 40, plan to roll up with the group on the 7th and stay for a week. And as far as gambling on a cruise boat, such things should be outlawed. Thats only because I, we, spend to darn much money in casinos, so "sign us up"!!! We've wasted more in casinos than some people make in a year so we'll have to try making some back, I hope that's a good way to think.

One can't have too much fun can one?

Kevin,

I was reading through the post of those planning to stop at Willow Tree. I noticed that you destination after Willow Tree was in the Chesapeake / VA Beach area. If I might ask a question or two. Right now we are planning on pulling to the Chesapeake area after leaving Willow Tree most likely with an intermediate stop in NC. In the Chesapeake area, are there RV parks you'd recommend we shy away from or any you would highly recommend? I have family in the area, but we have never had our RV with us when visiting. Do you have any impression of the campgrounds in the Williamsburg area? Thanks.

Tom & Millie, We were at Williamsburg for the Virginia Spring Rally and the CG was right outside of Williamsburg and in the middle of everything there is to do there. We stayed at American Heritage RV Park and here is a link to their website. www.americanheritagervpark.com (http://www.americanheritagervpark.com/)

I am sure some of our VA members can also weigh in on where you can set up camp all along the VA I-95 corridor!

Casino Cruise????

Just got off the phone with Phillip a group coordinator for SunCruz. The group flyer on page one shows and approximate $60.00 savings for going as a group! There is currently no "Senior Day" on the sailing schedule for November. The $25.00 per person Boarding/Buffet/2 Free Drinks/ $5 match Play & $5 Free Play at tables is included in the package as explained in the flyer.

Here's the hitch! We would have to book a specific date and sail on that day! Although the Farmers Alminac says it should be "pleasantly mild" for the week......it can be a questionable time of year to lock ourselves in to a specific day. Additionally, a 50% deposit would have to be forwarded to hold our group reservation. How would y'all like me to proceed here? I am willing to go either direction but I also like the idea of being able to change our sailing date in a moments notice if the weather is bad! Everyone who has an opinion and intended to go on the cruise please post it so I know which way to go here!

ncc1701e
09-26-2011, 05:41 PM
Debbie,

If you have to take pot luck and hope for the best on a date, I'm fine with that and please include us in the head count. Just let us know if you need a check for the money ahead of time to confirm the date.

I am creating a map locating everyone's campsite at Willow Tree. Some of you have not posted your site numbers and this makes it difficult to put your name on the map. I would appreciate if everyone would post their site number so I can complete the map and make a confirmation with Willow Tree! Thanks. An email will be going out soon to all those planning to attend!

Due to circumstances beyone our control, John and I will not be traveling to Willow Tree. We are Heartbroken that we will not be able to spend the end of the season with y'all.

I have been extremely busy this afternoon trying to regroup and I have a few people to thank for stepping up to help.

Kevin Wolbeck will be handling the Casino Cruz. A decision on the sailing date will be made as the event gets closer so that you will sail on a nice day with calm seas.
Maryann & John Proto have stepped up to organize the Thanksgiving Pot Luck Feast. John will be frying the turkey and Maryann will work with y'all to organize the side dishes.

Please, have fun and know that we are so sorry for this turn of events.

jbeletti
10-27-2011, 07:23 PM
Just a note for those joining in on the holiday feast, we will likely need more than one of most food items (salads, sides, desserts etc.). That I am bringing dressing means that it will be the largest pan I can get in my RV convection oven - so we'll need more :) Same for other things like potatoes, green bean casseroles, pies, salads etc.

So don't feel like someone took yours - we're RVers, we live large :)

Wish we could be there to see you guys before you head off for the winter. Enjoy!

As far as the pot luck, food would be good! Sorry I had to do it!

Well we arrived earlier this afternoon at Willow Tree Campground outside North Myrtle Beach SC and all I can say is this place is everthing we heard about it and more. This is our last camp out for the season before we service and then winterize until next spring. This is the way I want to end our first season with our new Big Horn. Can't wait for the remainder of the group to arrive for our end of year mini rally. Missing those who could not make it but you are in our thoughts as we raise our cups to a good time with good people.:)

Hey WillowTree campers!,

For those not yet here or had not gotten the word, the Thanksgiving Feast will be at 3 PM on Wednesday. The location will most likely be between sites 17 and 18 (Burtons and Protos). This is an outdoor event. We're trying to get WillowTree to bring 6 picnic tables by for our use. We will need regular tables for food. If you travel with a folding or other outdoor suitable camping table, we can use it.

Deb - who is "snookums"? :)

Well, Proto's put on a nie breakfast for anyone who wandered over. Pancakes and sausages. Then Johnnie Turner brought over some bacon. Yummy.

Nancy and I are heading into Myrtle Beach to see what there is to see.

Got all my bread cubed for the dressing for tomorrow's feast. Waiting for the giblets to walk over from Proto's birds :)

"Snookums" aka Jim Marigliano!

Proto's are the best and they would rather visit the 2-2-2 so you really got a good deal! Every Rally needs a "Baconator" so way to go Johnny!

There is a lot to do and see in Myrtle Beach and I hope you and Nancy enjoy! Stop by the "Gay Dolphin Gift Shop" on the Ocean Drive. It's like no other gift shop you've ever seen! You can pick up that camel there for sure!

I miss all y'all!!!!! Reality stinks!!!!!

Quite honestly, it's hard sitting with the cheerleaders - when you want to be out on the field playing the game!!

Deb - thanks for decoding "Snookums" :)

Nancy and I went to Myrtle Beach Boardwalk yesterday with Ed and Barb R. We met up with Kevin and Nelly W along the way for lunch at the Carolina Roadhouse. Kevin and Nelly had stopped at the casino cruise place to get the details for our cruise, now happening on Friday (11 am sail).

The weather and the boardwalk were fantastic. And yes, Nancy found the Gay Dolphin Gift Shop, though she abstained from purchasing. I think Barb found a few gifts though.

I know we found some great ice cream in the area!

Last night, we cooked dinner on the grill and had a few guest drop by to join us (Eric and Dorothy Vo, Kevin and Nelly W, Ed and Barb R). We had a campfire going during dinner and had a bunch more people pop by. Really great day.

Today at 3pm is THE FEAST! I got 3 HUGE bowls of cubed bread drying out. The whole RV smells like bread :) Waiting for the giblet delivery so I can start cooking the broth that will hydrate the dressing. Gonna be a nice feast.

As those who are at the campout get ready to sit down to the Thanksgiving Feast, I wanted to take the opportunity (with all kidding aside) to let everyone know that John and I have a great deal to be thankful for! Although we couldn't find a way to get out of work this week, we have had calls, comments on the forum and Facebook and emails from those who did make it to Willow Tree. We are blessed with your company so often that you feel like family! We send our thanks for our Heartland Family and pray for your safe return home. Thank you for taking us into your hearts and allowing us to bring you into ours. Until the next time we meet, know that we love you one and all!

Harvey,

Too bad we had to cancel because we do have another piece of furniture for sale. :eek: I'm gonna build a sofa across the back of our coach and our Flair "jewel" will be excess to our needs. Where will we cross paths so you can take ownership? :D

We are currently back in our Lady Lake, FL nest and every where I look there is something to do. This "Hill" one site campground is nowhere near as nice as Oak Plantation or Willow Tree. :rolleyes:

Our best to all at Willow Tree and safe trippin' to your next port of call!!!

Deb,

You did good in setting up this end of season campout. Lots of rigs, lots of great people and a whole lot of fun. Wish you guys could have made it, but it was not meant to be this time.

Thanks for doing all the leg work for us. With Protos, Wolbecks and others, the show goes on!

Sadly, many of this camp-out's attendees had to head out this morning. We had fun you guys!

I guess the die hards are still here! :)

This afternoon, a bunch of us went back into Myrtle Beach. Beautiful day. Walked the boardwalk, ate lunch, rode the Ferris wheel, had ice cream and some of us even frolicked on the beach and in the ocean.

Fun stuff.

Excuse me....there was no frolicking on the aganda! If I knew that I would have called out sick for a month or so.... :cool:

Glad you guys are having a good time and enjoy the Casino Cruise today.

Frolick is such a flexible word.

The sand felt great until we got to the wet sand. The water was BRRR cold. But we went out up to our calfs or so. Lot's of dead jellyfish to dodge on the beach and washing up. And of course, some fun with the shore showers to clean the sand off. Sorry Kevin :)

To all of you at Willow Tree - thanks for the wonderful rally "extension." Had a great time (as always.)
Our drive home was uneventful, as we hope yours will be.
Stay safe, see ya'll in 2012!

9 of us heading out to sea on the SunCruz Casino ship. We have all filled our bellies on the buffet line and just heard the word that the casino will open in five minutes. Hoping the slots are liking me today.

Some winners - some losers on the casino cruise yesterday (Friday) - but a fun time was had by all.

After we got back to the CG around 5pm, 15 of us headed out for dinner together at Carraba's in North Myrtle Beach. GREAT time!

I guess no one really wants this "Camp-out" to end :)

Sadly, today it ends for us :( Got all the outdoor stuff put away yesterday, flushed the black tank yesterday too. Having some breakfast now, a little TV and we'll be gone by 9 am - I hope. Pushing to Asheville, NC tonight. May stay there for 2 nights.

Good bye Heartland friends - we had a BLAST here at WillowTree with all of you. Have a safe and comfortable winter season and hope to see many of you in the Spring. Unless some of you visit us in Crossville over the winter :)

Arrived home tonight Sunday at about 7:15PM. I hate the NJ thruway. Took us over 5 hrs to drive 110 miles. So sad the last trip of the season. We had a great time at Charleston and Willow Tree. Can't wait for next year.

Hey Maryann,

Glad you guys made it home safe. It took us almost 5 hours too. We made it home by 7:00pm. We hit a lot of traffic on the Garden State too. Too many people live in Jersey LOL! I too am sad but I am looking so forward to 2012 rallies they seem awesome. Jim and I had a really great time @ Willow Tree and are so glad we decided to go. Talk to you soon it was great traveling with you guys!

Well our first HOG season has come to sad but good end. Dropped our BH off at Crossroads RV for some service and repairs and then continued home to Putnam County NY. Long day of travel but no problems. I want to say thanks to all the new camping friends we made this year and can't wait to get started again in 2012. I am so full from eatting so much I am considering hibernating like a bear all winter so the down time will pass quick and I can wake up and start again. Happy Holidays to all and looking forward to talking to all on the forum when I am not hibernating.
