New location. Good. Hopefully, we'll make this one. We're sorry that we won't make Boerne or Canton because of my Austrian daughter's visit. Have a great time at both rallies. Mike and Peg

FYI - The park is a beautiful park all concrete, right on Hwy 105 just west of Conroe and east of Montgomery (h ome of the Texas flag). The park used to be called Haven's Landing and has great facilities including an indoor pool. There is great shopping and antiquing in Montgomery. We would love to be there but will be working but everyone should have a great time.

We wish you and Shiela could be there Jim but we understand. You information/words about the park and surronding area were so eloquent I borrowed them for the description. Thanks

Travel safe and stay healthy.

Count us in!!! Wouldn't miss this one!

PS - the Montgomery County Fair is going on that weekend at the county fairgrounds about 15 minutes from the KOA. Our son Kyle will have a hog at the fair that weekend. If anyone (especially those with little ones) would like to come out and see the livestock exhibits, or just enjoy the fair in general, we'd be happy to have you :)

Great idea on the Montgomery County Fair, Spencer.

I have you and the family on the list, so you need to give the park a call and register with them also.

See y'all there:cool:

Hi Aletha,

I think it's left to the discretion of the Chapter Leader. Hopefully Tom and Marti will see your post shortly and let you know.

Aletha - Absolutely you are welcome to our rally. The rally charge is $20 for non Heartland brands but it will be worth it. We Heartlanders are a friendly bunch and when you get your own Heartland rig you can go to all the rallys. Please call the park at the number shown on post #1 and advise them you are coming in for the Heartland rally.

Trave safe, we'll see you there

Travel Safe and we'll see you then.:)

We will be arriving Friday around 3 or 4 pm. Had to stop in San Marcos to get the Truck checked out, so we decided to stay at this campground until Friday.

Looking forward to meeting everyone. Anyone going to be there over the weekend??

Well all I can say about the rally is WOW!!! The pot luck is over, prizes handed out and we had an hour of entertainment. MTpockets put on an impromtu guitar performance that was equal to a professional. He and his DW closed with a duet that was perfect. You folks that were not able to make this rally really missed something. :rolleyes: :)

Another fine South Texas Rally with thanks to Tom and Heartland support. As Tom mentioned we were very fortunate to have had MTpockets attending and sharing his talent after a fine potluck. Great job on the vocal and guitar... plus romantic selections for those leaning in that directon ;-) Must thank Ron Hoover for their support, and Diane and I especially thank them for the door prize of the nice lawn chair.

We are staying for another niight to finish off the ice cream!


Be safe

Great to hear about your new BC. Louisiana does not have a free standing chapter so for now the Louisiana bunch typically fall under the South Texas chapter. Obviously you can go to any of them but I will be a direct contact if needed. That being said, we are now planning on setting the Fall Rally either in Beaumont or somewhere in south Louisiana. I'll keep you informed. When you get your VIN number I would suggest you explore joining the Heartland Owners Club.
If you have any questions you can PM me

Again welcome to the Heartland family

I sure will Tom thanks! As far as the fall goes, that is football season and unless you would like to come tailgate with us my fall weekends are booked...lol. Even our open date is already booked with my 20 year reunion. You are invited to come tailgate with us though. Lol. I will be in touch once we get our vin. Thanks again!!

I understand the Louisiana and Football connection. I lived in Slidell for 4-1/2 years. There are lots of rallies, keep an eye on the forum for Mississippi or even North Texas. Most of us do 2 a year and you will be welcomed at all of them.:rolleyes::cool:

Enjoyed entertaining and Thanks to everyone for the kind words and hope to see you again sometime down the road. .... or, maybe at next year's National... It was great getting to know you all.

Honestly give a shout out the next time you see a bunch of us. Many of our folks have been owners of a wide variety of manufacturers so discussions are always "interesting"

I do believe we all had a good time. I have to thank all of you for your help in putting it together and the participation after arriving at the site. Someone at the dinner described the dinner as a "potluck because you never know what you are going to get". To me a relaxed rally with a "potluck of people" and it creates an incredible time with friends, old and new.

Thanks to all of you it was fun. We hope to see you (and others) in the fall.
