Made my reservations with Buckhorn today. We arrive Monday, Feb 11 and depart Monday, Feb 18.

For those considering this rally, please bear in mind a couple things:

1. This is an RV.net rally - not a Heartland rally, though we sponsor it and we'll have many Heartlanders there
2. Actual rally registration will not be open for many months - so don't fill out the registration form at www.rvrally.net (http://www.rvrally.net) just yet
3. If you are considering this rally, MAKE CG RESERVATIONS NOW! Be sure to tell Buckhorn that you are there for the Sweetheart rally. This means you get the rally rate and they put you on the rally list for the wagonmaster (Larry Ulmer). So you'll be on his radar screen

Looks like it is gonna be another great Sweetheart rally.

Time to sit back and enjoy everything else you have on your schedule. Larry Ulmer will open up the rally signup page later in the year, when he opens it up then you will have the option of signing up for the dinners and/or shows, shirts, hats and whatever else that is not included in the rally fee.

I heard from Larry yesterday. He is almost ready to allow people to fill out the registration form on the rally website. I will announce it here when it's time to go fill it out. If anyone has filled it out already (too early), they will have to redo it again when it's time to do so.

Remember that registering for this rally is a 2-step process.

1. Reserve a site with the campground (do this NOW)
2. Complete a rally registration form at the site in post #1 (do this when the form is ready - NOT YET)

If you can get a site (step 1), you will get into the rally as there's no real limit (other than sites available at the CG).

Hey everyone - the rally registration form is now ready for you to complete. Here's the link (http://www.rvrally.net/Reservations.htm).

If you have already reserved a site with Buckhorn Lake RV Resort, you now need to complete the registration form.

If you have yet to make your rally site reservation, please do this BEFORE completing the rally registration form.

See more information in post number 1 of this thread (link (//heartlandowners.org/showthread.php/29305-EVENT-RV-net-Rally-TX-Kerrville-2-13-2013-to-02-17-2013?p=230540&viewfull=1#post230540)).

I have tried to submit my registratio but it keeps being rejected "first dinner choice not a valid selection please choose another option"...I have tried ALL the options from no dinner to the 2 other choices without success. I have tried to email Larry but cannot for some reason...any help appreciated

Frustrated Lou

jimtoo
10-25-2012, 10:19 AM
Hi Lou, You must make a choice at every one of the questions. Each one has a drop down and you must select one of the drop down answers. From "No Thanks" or whatever is there. If your talking about the one that has 32oz steak,,, it has "No steak" or "Yes, 32oz steak"

Hope this takes care of it for you.

10-25-2012, 10:24 AM
Jim, that is my point, I have selected ALL the different combinations from the drop down boxes and NONE of them work

Lou_and_Bette
10-25-2012, 10:41 AM
OK, problem solved...it didn't have anything to do with dinner choices, it had to do with me (duh) not selecting riding the bus to the show, or not. We are registered YEAH

Hi monica-don,

We had the T-bone last year - it was great.

We'll be coming back from skiing in Breckenridge a few days before the sweetheart rally, and we're hoping for good weather as well - also leaving a couple of days of buffer in our travel plans just in case.

Larry Ulmer, the wagonmaster for this RV.net rally has just posted a discussion thread for the rally on the RV.net forum. Here's a link to it (http://www.rv.net/forum/index.cfm/fuseaction/thread/tid/26488620.cfm).

He also told me there's only 4 sites left as of today (27-Oct). If you're on the fence on this - time to get off!

Well we finally got our registration in with the Buckhorn folks and the wagon master. Since the "field is full" we are on the wait list. All of the oilfield workers down south are taking up sites the winter Texans usually get so the WT are taking up a lot of the sites typically used for the Sweetheart rally. Here's hoping for a cancellation or two.

jbeletti

Tom and Marti - happy to hear you have reservations at Buckhorn. With over 40 rally rigs - it's highly likely there will be cancellations. Hope to see you there.

Well, I just signed up on the waiting list. I was holding back because we aren't sure when I'll be healed up enough to head south. I'm sure we'll be able to head that way in Jan., but who knows. I think what did it is that Sally saw the Munzee Guru was going to be there!!! If we make the list, we'll be getting there the 11th & leaving the 17th. Now if we can just remember the ins & outs of Mexican Train!!!

Cookie, you saved the day. The pink wire changed to a red/wht wire and back to pink which led to a 30a inline fuse which was tucked in behind the battery. The funny thing is that fuse leads to the bus bar of the 50A breaker that I thought was bad. Also need to talk to you about tires which I want to put on before we go back home.Thanks.

Well we are goingto have to cancel going to this rally. My wife lost half her work schedule andwe had been getting along a little tight with the budget but in January my jobwas terminated and it just makes finances too tight so we have to cancel goingto this rally. We have really been trying to make it work out so we could go tothis rally but I haven't been able to land a job yet so it's just not in thecards this time. We are still scheduled for the Santo rally in March and hopewe will not have to cancel that one as well. We are still trying to get to ourfirst rally.

If he moved up there, within a week he'd have the area completely covered with Munzees. He's only been in Kerrville about 3 days, and has at least 500 Munzees out! :) By the time we get up there, if we want to deploy any Munzees, we'll have to put them on deer & armadillos!!!

Not good! I don't know if it would work or not, but if you have any Rescue Tape, you can wrap it around your finger (or whatever) then roll it off, & make an "O" ring. I couldn't stop a leak at the hot water heater down here last year when I de-winterized & a valve came apart in my hand. I replaced the valve at the hot water heater (along with the broken one) & it was still leaking. Tried everything I could think of (which wasn't much) & nothing worked...until I made the "O" ring. It's still there, & still not leaking!

Jim, not yet. He looked at it and knows just what he needs to do. Pat wanted to stay and fix it, but I asked him to come back in the morning so he and Lori could enjoy their evening.

Ouch!! You wanted him, a PLUMBER, to come back on a SUNDAY??? You think Saturday service calls are expensive... Sunday service calls are,,, Oh well ,, it's to late now... You will now be searching the cache's for any coins or something to sell. :)

This is starting to be an expensive trip. New tires, a bottle jack, Campfire in a Can, Food for the plumber to bribe the plumber for a lower rate. Maybe you all can take up a collection for me when you all get here. After all I do need a few bucks to get back to that miserable weather in St. Louis.

All you have to do is medicate Judy so she doesn't know or care where she is, and you can stay down here! Bad thing is that we've hardly ate at home. Seems like we are always going out to eat with the group, or at least heading out for ice cream!!! BTW, watch out for the plumber's crack tomorrow!!!!!!

Roy, I know what you mean about eating out and the group is not even here yet. I'm trying to keep my weight down to take it a little easier on my ticker. I wont have to medicate Judi, at the rate I'm going I'll be broke soon and we'll have to go home. I won't even touch the crack comment.

We are here! And so are a lot of others. Heartlanders or SOBs.

Tonight (Monday, Feb 11), a group of us are heading to town to get a bite to eat at Billy Gene's. We're leaving the park in a convoy around 5pm. If you're interested, c'mon down. Look for the loud crowd at the restaurant


Billy Gene's Restaurant

Tomorrow (Tuesday, Feb 12), another early arrivals outing in the making for those interested. Not much of a coordinated thing - just more of my itinerary. Feel free to join in


Breakfast at the RV
Fredericksburg to walk around for a an hour or two
Driftwood for a meal at Salt Lick BBQ - saw this on the Food Channel and have not been able to shake it


My guess is that I'll head out around 10 am or so.
Maybe leave Fredericksburg around Noon/1pm or so.
Head over to Driftwood to Salt Lick - about an hour from Fredericksburg

Ready to head over from Portland, TX on Wednesday.
Last time we travelled TX in February was 2011 we went from Houston to Ft. Stockton for an overnight, then on to Tucson in 2011.
Lows in the 20's. Windy. Cold. Freezing. Awful. Maybe the worst run we've ever had. Promised then and there, no more traveling in January/February.
And so here we go, breaking that promise for our first rally.
See y'all on Wednesday.

The Salt Lick is excellent! Bit of a drive.

Wish we could join in, but we don't get in until tomorrow afternoon.

A lot of rigs are here now. A large number rolled in today. Temps remain cool.


18 of us went to Billy and Gene's. Pretty good food and not expensive. Dessert was yummy too.

Easy for me to say, but leave earlier, then meet us in Fredericksburg before we roll to Salt Lick. Terry H is thinking about doing that.

Hope you guys have a great time this year, we won't be able to make it this time around so hopefully next year. It was fun last year and Buckhorn RV is a nice place.
I need a job like JB so I can travel the country having fun all over the place, his facebook posts give me a bit of jealousy :) hehe

Thank you Plumerdude. Turned out we were dealing with multiple problems. Pat went out of his way to help me out. A hacksaw put the finishing touches on the job. And Jim, he's labor rate was great.

Thanks Bernie. Yes, we had a great time at the Beletti homestead last night. 40 to 50 people here for hot dogs. Thanks for cooking, Cookie! Nelly cakes, yummy!

Had a great time in the rally hall playing dominoes afterwards.

Are you interested in Flea Markets? Check this out http://www.fbgtradedays.com/ . Some of us will go up there, most likely early Sat morning. Six big barns just full of fleas and outside vendors. And, yes Heartlanders they do serve food.

All good things must come to an end. Judi and I are pulling out about 7:30 to head into town for a new set of Michelins, on to Northern Tools(if there is room to park) to pick up a bottle jack and then on to Aransass Pass. We had a great time meeting new friends and visting with old fiends again. The food was excellent and we enjoyed Buckhorn. See you's in Goshen.

Well, I guess we'll add our goodbyes to this thread too. We had a blast this past week here in Kerrville. Weather during the day has been really nice. The company here (both Heartlanders and others) has been top notch.

Between hanging out with friends, eating out with friends, Munzee hunting, sight seeing, show going, shopping, domino playing and more - whew, time for a break!

Thanks to all the Heartlanders for helping to make the RV.net rally a fun time for all and for doing a supper job of leaving all non-Heartlanders at this rally feeling like it truly was a rally of all brands.

See a bunch of you in the Aransas Pass area later today for the next week for us.

Jim, Nancy and Emme

Sally & I want to add that we also had a blast at the rally! We made new friends, & reconnected with old friends. As always rv.net has put on a super rally, thanks to all those involved for all the hard work you have done! This is one of the best rallys we've attended! Also just wanted to add that Kevin, Nelly & us are sitting at a lot Karnes City, TX waiting for gates to open. There are 3 rigs here besides us. One of them is a Sundance, we've told him about HOC & the forum, so maybe a new member!
