Hmmm, Our itinerary for the winter has us leaving Victoria, TX on 4/21 and heading back to OH. If everything works out OK we can leave a day early and stop by. The wheels are spinning as we are spending this winter and early spring traveling Southern TX. We'll keep you advise.
Do you need a positive commitment date. ?
If so what date ?
As long as the Old Ford and Bighorn hold up we should be able to make it.

Jim and wilma

Wilma and Jim, I must release any unused sites a month before the rally, so March 20th would be the latest that you could be assurred of getting a site.

Lindsay and myself will be there!

Jay,

Put Maureen and I down. Not sure if we will leave Saturday or stay a little later this time.

jayc
10-11-2011, 08:53 PM
Buddy, you and Maureen are down. I hope that you can stay all weekend. We had a little "after rally-rally" that was fun. We got rained out of sitting outside but still had a good time.

hcriddle
10-11-2011, 08:55 PM
Thanks Jay I am working on scheduling now so that we can slip down to the valley also. I will keep you posted.

jayc
10-11-2011, 08:58 PM
That would be great Buddy. We have a great time in the valley and of course, meeting all the Heartlanders there.

Count us in. Question though . . . since this is our first Rally, do we call the park to make a reservation or is it covered with your 30 reserved sites? We're excited about being there and meeting everybody.

jayc
10-12-2011, 09:05 AM
Glen and Sue, contact the park to make your reservation. They will place you in one of the assigned sites for the rally.

Thats a long haul...............but count us in. I'll get Marti to contact Rayford.

Hastey
10-12-2011, 04:05 PM
Stacy and I will need to wait until after the first of the year to make the decision. Have to see how her contracts pan out for the year. If it were up to me I'd say yes and hole up for the winter down there and stop by on our way home in the spring.

jayc
10-12-2011, 07:23 PM
Tom, I know that its a long way for you, what is it, 20 miles or so? Don't know how you can afford the fuel to get all the way here.

Rex, we will be looking forward to you and Stacey, hope you can make it.

That sounds like a great time, we will put it on the calender. Maybe we can get a good Oklahoma delagation to come down. We hope to have our chapter started by then...
Larry and Donna Keever
Oklahoma City, Ok.

jayc
10-12-2011, 09:19 PM
Sounds good Larry, hope y'all can make it.

pegmikef
10-13-2011, 07:00 PM
Hey Jay, Pencil us in. I figure if Tom and Marti can drive the 20 or so miles from Tom Ball or whereever, the least we can do is drive the 300 plus from west Texas (with a couple of stops on the way) to make it. My only stopper might be my Austrian daughter who may be arriving here about that time, but we will work around it. BTW, we're kind of looking at the BH3070 now. It is a little heavier than the Silverado, but according to the specs, my little truck should handle it ok . . . plus it has more perks.

hcriddle
10-13-2011, 09:15 PM
You can make it Mike. Shoot I am driving almost 10 miles further than Tom. :D

jayc
10-14-2011, 07:56 AM
Mike, I'll add you and Peg to the list. Glad to hear that the 3070 will work for you. Looking forward to seeing it.

Jay, it was wonderful seeing you and Stella as well, we finally picked it up this past Friday morning and have been moving everthing from the Cyclone to the Landmark (you know the drill all to well), but we did really enjoy the king bed Friday night, looking forward to seeing all at the Rally in April, safe travels.

Rex, sorry you and Stacy won't be able to make it. This is a beautiful park and you'll be missing a good time with the other Heartlanders.

We want to come but I can't pull that much time away from the business and the farm that early in the year and still make Gillette.

Rex, I understand. We'll catch you another time.

Jay, Diane and I have just returned from our trip to Williamsburg/Jamestowm and points in between. Had a good time and gained an increased appreciation of the historical events and locales of our country. We have registered at Rayford Crossing and need to let you know that we will be there for the April rally. Will miss you and Stella at Kerrville... just have to wait a little longer to see the new Landmark.


ps; The slow leak we had when departing Canton turned out to be a cracked rim. Second one we have experienced.


Jerry and Diane

Here is some more good news, especially if you are already a full timer or are thinking about it. Have you ever heard of Sky Med (http://www.skymed.com/)? They are providers of medical evacuation transportation for you and your loved ones in case of illness or injury.

Stan and Catherine Griffith are going to be in the area and will come down on Saturday, April 21st to speak with anyone that has an interest in this service. He will have a door prize to award to someone and will stay for our potluck supper for any further questions.

I will have some handout material for you to review and ask questions of us as full timers and any other full timers that are willing to answer questions about our life as full time RV'ers.

Things have changed a bit for us. The Spring Break seems to have used up most of the campgrounds, so we will be at Rayford Crossing a week early. We will be in site# 108 from the 9th to the 15th then move to #77 on the 16th and leave on the 23rd. If your around bring your "Red Solo Cup and Lets have a party"..... LOL....BC

Good News Gang

I talked to Joe French, General Manager of Ron Hoover RV in Katy today. They are sponsoring our rally and will furnish us with a breakfast on Saturday morning at 9 AM.

He is also planning to bring a technician to the park to do minor repairs and adjustments for us. The tech will be onsite on Friday and Saturday, so if there is some little something that needs to be repaired, it will be done at NO CHARGE to us by Ron Hoover RV.

Time is getting short but we still have a few sites left if you want to come with us!

TravelTiger
03-18-2012, 09:28 PM
Jay,

This is great! What is considered a minor adjustment/repair? When retracting the LR slide, it likes to stick for a split sec. and then go, only on one side... I think it needs an adjustment. Would this be fair to ask about? Also, we noticed this weekend we lost our radio antenna somewhere. :(

Erika

jayc
03-18-2012, 09:35 PM
The repairs would be mainly things that can be done in the field without a shop. You can call Joe French at Ron Hoov er RV (281 829-1560) and he can tell you what they can do. If you buy an antenna, they should be able to install it for you. As far as adjustments to the slides, I believe they can do that, but ask Joe.

jayc
03-22-2012, 12:10 PM
Jerry and Diane Talley won't be able to come this year due to some health issues. I hope everyone will join me with adding Diane to a prayer list.

TXBobcat
03-22-2012, 06:24 PM
I am very sorry to hear this. We will add them to our prayers..

Thank you for the information.

Thanks Bob, we can never have too many prayers!

jayc
03-25-2012, 05:11 PM
Okay, today I released the remaining sites but there is still time to sign up and come withus. I have asked the park to assign anyone else that wants to come to a site near the group.

rustyshakelford
03-25-2012, 08:15 PM
I hope we're going to be able to make it! The trailers been at Ron hoovers for about a month now and they are still sounding like its going to be a few more weeks. Having to get another FW tank. Hopefully I'll know more tomorrow.

Brett

jayc

This is great news Jay. Luther seems thrilled with the unit. I'd love to see a group of Heartlanders come along side him and his wife to really help them feel comfortable as new owners and maybe even answer a few questions about his coach.

Hey everybody.... What is the plan for Friday? DH is off and I was thinking of coming for the day. Also thought about bringing a friend and coming for the pot luck.

jayc
04-11-2012, 09:14 PM
Michelle, Friday is arrival day for several of the people that will be at the rally, so we don't plan too much for Friday night. We'll probably meet at my site and use the gas grill to fix an assortment of grilled foods or if anyone wishes to, go out to one of the local restaurants to eat.

Saturday we'll have a breakfast furnished by Ron Hoover RV, nothing planned for lunch and a guest speaker in the afternoon. The potluck dinner will be on Saturday evening but you're welcome to come.

mmomega
04-12-2012, 01:05 PM
We aren't going to make it Jay, had some things come up so we have to head out of town that and the trailer is in getting one of the living room windows completely replaced. Dealer had the window out ready for the new to go in and the wrong window shows up. Things may change but don't count on it at this point. Did you end up with the same spot as last year?

JD, bummer that you can't make it. We'll think of you when we're at the potluck! I am in the same site as last year.

Bob, Ron Hoover will be out on Friday and Saturday and should be able to help you with your light.

BC

Bob,

Not sure about your fixture, but most of the flush models use a spring clip on 2 sides to hold the fixture into the ceiling hole. For these, I grasp the lens on 2 sides and pull down until the fixture comes away from the ceiling a half inch to an inch. Then I work one side, at the clip, down until the clip comes out of the hole and into the open. Then the other side drops down easily.

Good luck,

Jim

Well the rally is officially underway! A good group of us went to the Casa Imperial restaurant for some good Mexican food last night and then, as you can see by The Bobcat's pictures, came back to the park and had a great time sitting around admiring Jim's new hair.

Follow-up to a previous post about the display units. Ron Hoover will have a Road Warrior toy hauler and a new floorplan Big Country to show us.

Much more fun today as the rest of the crowd arrives...!

I just called rayford and cancelled our reservations. We are instead heading up north of Sam Rayburn lake tomorrow for a funeral. We had the camper ready to roll and everything. Y'all have a great time and we might try to stop in and say hi.

Also a BIG THANKS to Joe French of Ron Hoover RV's for the service tech, Miguel, and the minor repairs and also for the great door prizes.

Thanks again to Jay and Stella for the planning.

Looks like another awesome Heartland Owners Rally in Texas!

One really has to appreciate dealers like Ron Hoover on this rally and Dick Gore on the Myrtle Beach, SC rally. Few dealers really get it or have an interest in coming along side a club. I know first hand that support from dealers like this that really get it, not only pays dividends for rally attendees immediately (door prizes, meals, seminars, light maintenance work, show coaches etc), but it nearly always pays dividends for the dealer with increased coach and service sales. To me - it's a win-win.

Thanks Jay and Stella and all who helped you put this one one. Thanks to all the club members that came out to support this chapter! Heartlanders are the best!

Big thanks to ron hoover rv for the great door prizes!!!! They had 2 rv's on site that were open to the public to check out. We showed ours to a couple next to us. They were sold on the bighorn & heartland quality. They want one!
#1 door prize $699.00 tailgate sat. Dish
bbq pit, outdoor rug, ice chest, & many, many others. Everybody there got a door prize of some kind. We did not win the grand prize, but did win it from bob & pat curry who put it up for auction after winning it. Thanks to all who helped put the rally on. Too many to name.

And a big belated thanks to Jay, Stella, Jimtoo and all the others that put this rally on. It was great (and I got a free shower and rv wash job setting up on Friday afternoon). I too want to give a special thanks to Joe French and the Ron Hoover RV bunch especially since we were the lucky recipient of one of those great door prizes. We especially enjoyed meeting all the people. Sorry this is so late, but we were at Cedar Breaks COE park the last couple of days and there is no wifi access there (remembering that we're the ones with one of the no frills TTs). Thanks again all.

Double kudos to Jay and Stella for another great rally. Joe French also put the big spotlight on the Ron Hoover quality work with his service technician taking care of several rigs problems, no charge. Joe then supplied several really premium door prizes. Well done ! ! ! !
