It is Thursday and we just got out of the potluck dinner. The dinner was great and the entertainment was very funny.. Glad I was not up there....

I am sitting Sweede & Vonnie. We are practicing how to post and make threads on the forum. During the Forum class by our monitors we discussed many topics and I am here trying to explain some of the simple procedures...

Those of you that did not make this rally are missing a great opportunity.

We had a great time. There was a ton of food, too much to sample everything. The entertainment was totally funny too. Great time. Right now we are gathered around the fire and some folks are drinking Henny's "apple pie", including our illustrious leader, Mr Beletti.

I like me some "apple pie". Got some "cherries" in the fridge right now.

My only comment on the dinner is "BURP!" Trying not to loose dinner while laughing during the entertainment was a challenge.

Having a great time. Seminars very informative. Much better setting for the market place but we missed the jelly beans and they are gluten free.:(

Most of all have to mention how wonderful the Heartland service team has been. Great attitude while very willing to help. Also team was very organized. We want to give a shout out to Tim from service, Greg from the office, Dan and Jeremy from production and Jeremy's helper today. They all provided excellent service!!!!!

Take the 20 minute ride to Wakarusa to the Dime Store. You'll be glad you did :)

I really enjoy tooling around in my golf cart visiting anyone who is outside. Really enjoyed your campfires and thanks Henny and Kevin for the Apple Pie :)

We also want to give a shout out to the service team...each time we are here in Goshen they do a fantastic job of meeting everyone's needs. Our pop up counter on the side of the sink broke last fall and I was without that little piece and really missed it. The guys came in to fix it, and they don't make those braces anymore due to safety issues (maybe getting fingers pinched?) and they had to reconfigure and think how to fix it. Came back with new set of braces, drilled a couple extra holes, and voila', have my little piece of countertop back!! They also repaired a strip across the ceiling that had come off. I hope the rest of you are getting the same satisfaction out of the team. Bravo!

We are having a blast! Bigger and better than Gillette, our first NA Rally. Great job from the service team! Replaced our fridge drain hose in about 20 min, far faster than we could have ever done it. Also took care of some slide issues.

Awesome! I rode my bike past all the areas where rigs are set up, and they are everywhere! Hope all are enjoying this little slice of heaven.

I too am very impressed with the Rally. Very informative seminars and great food. Loved those Nelly Muffins Friday morning. Great entertainment Thursday night also. Heartland is bending over backwards to fix problem anyone has with their rig.

This is our first national rally and we are having so much fun! We have met many new friends and met up with old ones.

The seminars are very informative.

Thank you Heartland for the service guys!! They fixed our issues very quickly and professionally.

Thanks to all who have made this a great rally!

Yes they did. Tim and Gregg fixed the slide. And Dan, the production assistant superintendent fixed the vinyl where it was damaged by the slide.

Having a great time at our first national rally! Have enjoyed meeting so many different people from all over the US and Canada. We were missed on the repair list, :( but our two repairs were minor issues (no big deal). All in all, we are having a blast and so is our son who is traveling with us on this trip.

To follow up on my wife's post - she cornered someone after lunch today at the Q&A session at the RV/MH Museum tour who is going to look into why our service request got missed and will get us the parts we need to fix our coach.

And I'm having a great time, as well. The seminars, alone, are often worth the "price of admission". Firsthand information from manufacturers of products is always valuable.

This has got to be our last Goshen rally. I've got the Goshen Curse on my truck. Last time, i found I had a flat inner dually tire on Saturday afternoon just before dinner. Today, after getting back from the tour, I found one the outer tires lost air due to a flaky valve stem. Changed that bad boy myself. Still crossing my fingers that the brake controller won't act up again on the way north.

We are very thankful for the service team. We had not pre-registered for any work because we did not think they could fix it but decided to ask for advice as to what to do. They told us they had everything they needed to fix the trim along one side and we now have new trim with no cracks, they fixed some trim on the inside, and sent us in the right direction for wet bolt repair. They do a fantastic job and so quickly. I can not imagine how long it would have taken us to finish the trim repair on our own. We can check a couple problems off the little bucket list thanks to the service team.

We got a screw in our tire at the factory today perhaps.

As this awesome event winds down I want to first thank Heartland RV's for their support of our Owners Club and Jim Beletti for his dedication to the owners and Heartland and everything he does for the organization. I can't say enough about Jim's team that made this event run exceptionally smooth. Great job guys and girls!!!

If I have any regrets, it's that Lin & I didn't find the time to do more meet & greet with other owners. So many new faces too. We wish for everyone to have safe travels to their next destination. We're ready for a quick departure tomorrow after a little breakfast. G'nite everyone!

Couldn't have said it any better Ray. What a great, fun time. Met a lot of new friends and rekindled a lot of current friendships. Can't begin to thank Heartland management, the Heartland Service Team members and Jim Beletti for all of the support and hard work that when into the rally. Thanks to all for such a wonderful week. Can't wait till next year.
Hope all of you have a safe and uneventful trip home.

Another successful Goshen event in the history books. Big thanks go out to all the support staff that made this a seemingly effortless event. Mark Comer's crew and 3-table concept knocked it out of the park; Kudos. Hats off to the charity coordinators this year. The service support teams were outstanding and very accommodating as usual. Hope to see everyone in Virginia next year. Safe travels to all.

We will join in with all the other voices expressing our thanks and appreciation to Heartland for their recognition of us as owners as well as their support for Jim and his team. Without that we would not get to experience rallies like the one we just ended. We had the best time ever and cannot wait for 2015! In the meantime happy trails to everyone.

Thank you many times over, Jim B., Heartland, and all of the many volunteers for orchestrating such a memorable, fun experience. AWESOME, AWESOME, AWESOME pre-rally and rally!! Food, entertainment, seminars and LTAs were OUTSTANDING. Friendships renewed and new friends found - PRICELESS!

Looking forward to the 2014 National Rally in Virginia. Safe travels and we'll see y'all down the road - RALLY ON!

Looks like we all agree- kudos to Heartland , Jim and all his rally team and especially the service teams. They went way above and beyond to get all the problems solved for everyone. So sad we will not make it to VA in 2014 due to family commitments but we will definitely be back to Goshen in 2015. We loved our infield site. Heartland is certainly where the heart is.

Also, I want to thank our exercise class leader! I came home and downloaded the ABBA Cd and have been continuing what you taught us!
