We missed going to Alaska this year, so it looks like we will try it again in 2012. We plan to make Gillette the start point.

Include us to attend the Gillette rally.

It would be fun to have a convoy from Texas. We will probably be in South Texas (maybe Mission or Rockport) after the Sweetheart Rally in Feburary. We are slow travelers tho.

See you all there.

BTW.. JimB Couldn't find this rally on the Portal List. Had to search for this thread....

Bob, you're welcome to convoy with us but you'll have to keep up! LOL

I don't think this rally has been posted on the portal yet.

If you are planning or considering a CONVOY with other Heartlanders on the way to the 2012 North American Heartland Owners Rally in Gillette, WY in June of 2012, use this thread to discuss your thoughts.

Jay,
We are in. My only problem is I am planning on spending most of our trip on the back side of the rally going up to Glacier, Yellowstone, Grand Canyon and other sights along the way. This means I won't be leaving until after church on Sunday the 10th. I already have much of my trip planned out. When I get to the office tomorrow I will try to remember to send you what I have so far.

We're from near Los Angeles area. No traveling plans yet, but we're thinking we would go straight to Gillette first (with stopovers) and then do some sightseeing after. We just got back from five weeks in Black Hills of S.D., Yellowstone, Grand Tetons, Moab, etc., so we're thinking maybe go north this time after Gillette. Like maybe Glacier.

Jay... whatever is put together as a Texas Convoy to Gillette Diane and I would love to take a sot. Any schedule is OK with us. We will stay in touch and perhaps discuss at Canton in October.


Thanks, Jerry

Amy and I started a poll thread for people interested in attending a Wyoming chapter rally either before or after Gillette. Please use the link below if your interested. Also, I understand from one of the posts in that thread that arriving early will not be an option at the Cam-plex so we are putting together a list of some parks within a couple hundred miles of Gillette for people to stage at. We are going over to the Black Hills next week and plan on visiting with some parks to see if we can get a group rate for early arrivals. I'll post the info with distances when I have it done. If any body has questions about travel in Wyoming please feel free to PM and we will do our best to help out.

Thanks so much for going to the extra trouble for all of us that wish to come early or stay late.

Thanks for looking into campgrounds for us! That will be a big help in planning our trip. We still don't know if we are going to take a northern route through Spokane area, or the southern route through Salt Lake City. Now it looks like we can take more time getting to the rally so we have time to spend more than one night in a place or two.

Okay, whose is coming from Southern California? We are near Los Angeles. Is this group meeting on the east side of Nevada then? We haven't planned our trip yet?

FYI, Reno is 400 miles further going to Gillette, rather than going through Las Vegas for Southern California.
IMHO, Salt Lake City makes more sense for folks coming from most points west, except maybe Washington.

John and all Pacific Region people, can we move our conversation to the Pacific Region discussion thread (//heartlandowners.org/showthread.php/26163-Pacific-Region-Travel-Discussion-to-Gillette-WY-National-Rally) so Texas and company can have their discussion back without us breaking it up for them?

I just think it would make it easier for them to keep track of who is doing what from their area and I know it would make it easier for us since we have so many states and chapters wanting to join together from the Pacific. Just click on the link i put in the section above to get to the right thread.

We are planning a couple of days in Zion before the rally (out of So. Calif.), then after the rally six nights at Colter Bay (Grand Tetons) then up to Glacier for a week. Anyone else going those ways?
