Hey Larry, we are both disappointed that you and Sam can't make this camp-out, but we fully understand and know that we will have many more opportunities to camp together. I must confess however that I am relieved that you will not be with us, because I am scared to wits end that your presence would also bring forth that character by the name of Lance. I would be a nervous wreck all weekend continually looking over my shoulder for that confounded missile or boulder to come crashing down on us. He does seem to find you. Just saying ...;)

Nancy & I will be there 18 Oct thru 22 Oct. on site 51..

Eric.. Nancy & I were thinking.. we want to have Breakfast @ our site Friday morning .. French Toast & Sausage .:p Everyone else can bring what they want to add to the meal If they like.. We did this in Maryland and it went off well. I also brought a "new electric griddle", so we shall make things go much more quickly. Anyone for Breakfast??:confused:

Hey now, what folks need to understand is that the missiles and boulders are "heat seekers".......they go where the "hot air" is......:rolleyes:

Soooooo, MOST folks are safe!

Hey Roger and Janet, that is great joining us. That makes 7 rigs, we are going to have FUN.
@camperjohn08: Great idea for the breakfast, I am sure it will be enjoyed by all. Dorothy said she would bring fruit so that will round out the food. We have that large coffee percolator so we will crank that up. John, you make the best coffee, right?
@lduguay and SoutherNights, no hot air at this camp-out!! Plan on running all the AC's on high!!:p

Hmmmmmm, after review of the attendee list, you might have a "perfect storm" brewing that could produce a lot of hot air!!! Not naming names, just saying........:rolleyes:

Lance, a personal invitation for you and Kem to join us in Williamsburg.:angel: I figure that having you with us may control the amount of "hot air" and thereby providing us all with a high level of protection. So PLEASE come!:cool:

An extra electric griddle to cook the sausage would help.. If ya want to bring anything else by all means bring them.. Looks like we are gonna have a bigger crowd of Heartland Friends and Family @ this camp-out..
Thanks Again for the offer.. We "All" will appreciate a "Good Breakfast" to start another Great Heartland Camp-Out Rally..:p

Hi Richard156, we would love to have you enjoy the camp-out with us. You will meet some of the most gracious friendly camping family ever. We are planning on having a non structured agenda (total relaxation) camp-out with the Williamsburg area providing all of the activities you could want. As you have read in these posts there will be opportunity to have meals together as well as opportunity to socialize. Give the campground a call to reserve a site and check back here to let us know if you are attending. Hope to meet you soon.

Did someone say wine tasting? I'm game!

By the way John, I can bring a griddle (just like the one you had in MD) if you would like to use it for the breakfast.

All kidding aside though.. wine & Cheese & Crackers one day.. Breakfast another.. it's gonna be a Party..:p

Wow, for a non-structured lay back camp-out, things are shaping up. A wine tasting will be fun, so let's plan that for a late afternoon event. Best morning for John's breakfast is probably Saturday so all attendees can participate. (John, we will bring 2 dozen farm fresh eggs for the breakfast)I would also suggest having a pizza night (or day) at Sal's. We really like Sal's pizza and I think you will too. We are presently at the NC/SC rally in Waynesville and will travel directly to American Heritage RV Park to arrive Thursday. Safe travels and we will see you there.

Since we haven't used our trailer in almost two months, we're pulling it onto the local National Park CG tonight to hook up, load supplies and get the reefer going. Plan on arriving around 3:00 Thursday. We are SOOOO looking forward to this trip. Can't wait to see everyone.

We have attracted another wonderful Heartland couple to our little camp-out, Barb and Ed Rauch will be joining us. It will be great seeing them again. Everyone travel safe, and we will see you soon.

What great weather we have had for this campout. Again today the sun is shining and the leaves are falling. Some of our fellow campers have gone for home, but many still remain. We will have a leftover, pot luck get together again tonight (an maybe another campfire & movie ???) and will pack up and return home tomorrow. Really enjoying this beautiful Fall weather and spending quality time with Heartland friends.

For a laid back camp-out, all of the elements resulted in a home run. The Williamsburg location allowed for a large variety of activities and events, and not surprisingly a "shop 'till you drop" experience for some of us. The weather was "picture" perfect, with warm sunny days and cool evenings to enjoy the nightly camp fire (thanks Don and John). And the food, abundant and scrumptious, exactly what HOC gatherings have built a reputation for. I hear through the grape vine that Heartland is designing a new line of campers, all of which offer a 48 inch wide entry door:rolleyes:. But the absolute best part of this event was being with the greatest bunch of Heartlander's (and some of their SOB friends) for a memorable time of being together:). Hope to see you all and many more at our next event, ... so Rally-On!

Wonder if I can retrofit that 48" door? Definitely a Grand Slam Homerun this weekend.
