20 Sites have been reserved for this Rally. Please contact Coffee Creek for a reservation and post or PM me with your dates. Be sure to tell them you are with the Heartland Owners Rally.

Coffee Creek is located in the rolling wooded hills of Palo Pinto County 14 miles south of Mineral Wells. You will find everything you would expect from a premier RV Resort. Every site has full hookups including 30 or 50 amp, free Wi-Fi and level sites with patios. Designed to accommodate any size rig, the pull through sites are 92 feet long! Throughout the resort are wide lighted paved roads and easy access to all sites in the resort. The resort has the best restrooms you will find at an RV park. Coffee Creek has a playground for kids, a large fenced dog run and two catch and release fishing ponds. No need for a fishing license! Come and enjoy the game room, pool and hot tub while enjoying the serene country setting.

Coffee Creek is ideally located just 1/2 mile north of Interstate 20 at Exit 386. While you are here explore all there is to see and do in the Northern Texas Hill Country. Not far from the resort are the towns of Mineral Wells, Granbury, Weatherford, Fort Worth and Arlington, home of the Texas Rangers and Dallas Cowboys. Coffee Creek is Good Sam Rated at 10/9.5/9.5.

Didn't get site number yet but made reservations. We'll be there on the 26th thru 29th. I did make sure that these were going to be pull thru sites. We just put our unit back in storage. What a sight backing it into the stall. Hopefully Debbbie and I will be talking again by the time of the rally. Looking forward to seeing everyone there.
BTW; Not trying to look different and fit in even though we have the smallest rig at these events, we noticed everyone was flying flags. Well, the Bakers now have a flagpole. It's the short one. The long pole made the rig look smaller. We also noticed most people had name plaques outside their rigs. Well, to fit in and not stand out, we now have a name tag depicting the Bakers and the 'Lil Guy'. To make our rig look larger and take up more space, I ordered it on a ceder plank that is 4' by 10' long. This will help take up more space in our pull thru site and create an illusion of a bigger rig. I'm still trying to come up with a stand that can support it. And you think you hate us now.......

Andy, am I going to get another Donut delivered to the dump station? I didn't know whether to feel special or insulted. That name plate and stand is putting me way over on my TV payload. Don't know if it can handle that stretch of I 10 that beats the SH...out of everything. Last time I was on that stretch of I 10, the 'Lil Guy' was airborne half the time and my spare tire cover fell off and all of the beers in my cooler exploded. But yea, we'll try to make it.

Certainly you both know that this Donut business is in jest. We had a great time at your rally and enjoyed visiting with your one on one. Hope to see you both in Santos and we're going to try to make yours also. I kid alot but not about my new cedar plank name plaque. It's huge. I'm surprised more people haven't signed up for the North Texas Rally just to see this thing. It could be the 8th wonder of the world. With the little flag, it creates the illusion of a 50' rig. I'll have an open bar Friday night just for people that want to get their picture taken in front of it. After a few cocktails, the name plaque seems to get even bigger. I'll probably have to just lean it against the rear bumper of my truck since I haven't been able to fabricate a stand for it. After word gets out that this thing is for real, people will be paying my way to attend their rallys just to have it on site. It really is a marvel to behold. Maybe Andy can help Debbie and I set it up.
See you both at the rally. Later and have a great day.

I am not retired yet. I have 55 days left and the Louisiana rally will be on the list. We have been living in the rig since August and plan on a few weeks in a place with more than 450 sq ft before venturing out. After Santos we have one in Boerne and then we are planning on the National in June. For Louisiana my mouth is already tasting good seafood.:)

HI Donna1098,

Rally is listed as starting on the 27th, but a lot of folks always come in a day or two early. It's just fun to be around other Heartlanders and visit. Maybe explore the area for a day on your own.....OR,,, if your a newbie to parking..get there early so no one will be videoing your parking and spreading it around.... :) OR ,, if your not a newbie,, you may want to watch others goof off while parking... :)

We will have breakfast Saturday morning. Please let me know if you can cook and/or provide an electric griddle.

Looking forward to seeing everyone!

If Dave gets a tee time for Friday, I'd like to play. Will be getting in late Thursday. I have the Road Trip LXE with the full size griddle if you need some help frying bacon or whatever. As of now we're about 99% sure we can make it. Looking for dog sitters now. Looking forward to seeing some friends and meeting some new ones. Bernie, the bar will be open at the 'Lil Guy' Thursday evening. Gotta see my Yankee buddy before he heads north and crosses the Masie Dixie Line.lol Take it easy on the 'LG'. You gave him a complex in La. I'll take down the name plaque so you can see the little 5er this time.
Later and have a great day.

Got the dog sitter lined up so we are 100% now. Nancy, tell me a little about this breakfast. Is it potluck? Will there be biscuits and gravy? Can't let that La. bunch outdo the N Texas Chapter. If you would like, I'll do the thick bacon if you tell me how many people you're feeding. Maybe 9 or 10 lbs? More? Dave isn't going to be there so I guess I'll have to do my own potatoes.
We made reservations way back when. Did you tell the park to put me out in right field like the La. chapter did because the 'Lil Guy' wasn't as big and nice as everybody else? Will I be in shouting distance of the group of big 5ers this time.
Seriously, what is the format for the breakfast? At a site or at the Lodge?
Thanks in advance and have a great day.

Frank, we are providing the breakfast...sausage, bacon, eggs, biscuits, gravy, coffee, juice. If you want to cook potatoes, that would be great. I got some bacon at Costco. Not as good as yours though! We have about 50 people signed up for the rally. We will use the rally room.

The potluck will be that evening. Exploreusa is providing the meat for the potluck. Bring a side, salad or dessert.

Dave has a tee time Friday at 8:50am.

Thanks Nancy. Bacon is pig fat. It's all good. You're definitely going to need some help cooking for that group. Looking forward to seeing you and everyone again. Got a couple of more questions but I'll talk to you at the rally. Have a great day.

Are we going to do any rig touring? I know with all the hype, I need to see the 'Lil Guy', just to see how 'lil' it is. Still, a sista' ElkRidge, so I am not bashing!

When we pull into our site there is enough room left for our truck and a full size tennis court. They only charge us 1/2 price for the site.
I'm not going to count on Bernie to bring the Fireball so I'm going to get my own.
Your welcome to look at the 'Lil Guy' but don't heckle and give him a complex. Really, you've seen one you've seen them all. Just whack about 15' off of one of our rigs and drop the top about 2 feet so you have to bend over to walk thru it and there you have it. Anyway, the 'Lil Guy' will be in demand for HL rallys in the future. People will be lining up to get a glimpse of him. Just look hard. He'll be somewhere behind the name plaque.

He actually does have a Fireball bottle that tall. Goshen 2013! Maybe he'll bring it for Goshen 2015 and reprise his 2013 role with it :)

Hi Hallie and Jay,

Welcome to the Heartland Owners Forum and to the family. We have a great bunch of folks here with lots of information and all willing to share their knowledge when needed.

While at the rally just ask for a little help and I'm sure someone will help you get use to the forum.

Enjoy the forum and your new unit.

Dave and Nancy. Thanks for a great rally. We had a great time seeing a lot of old friends and making new ones. The food was great and we really liked the breakfast! Nice idea. I am sorry we missed the games, but frankly I forgot all about it and was probably busy trying to ward off our uninvited and unwanted guests (the little black ones). Thanks again. I know it is a lot of work and we appreciate it.

Congrats to Dave and Nance for putting on another excellent rally. Great people, great turnout and great weather. Friday evening meet and greet over ice cream followed by a great breakfast Saturday morning and great Bar B Que Saturday evening. Thanks Dave for the Butt whipping at golf Saturday. I really enjoyed getting back out on the course. A special shout out to my man Bernie for finding the problem with my stove vent fan. Thanks to Pat for showing me how to turn on my landing light. (just throw the switch.lol) Debbie and I really enjoyed meeting some old friends and making some new ones. Hope to see everyone again down the road.

Trying to crowd that many people together started to get a little difficult. If you're not in it it's your own fault. Just look at some of the heads across the back row peeking over. Should have given them little red and whitre hats so we could play find Waldo. If you notice, I'm not in any of them either. Being in the witness protection program, I try to keep a low profile and not draw any attention to the 'Lil Guy'.

BTW, Debbie edited out some good pics because they weren't flattering of her. For instance, the one in the parking lot holding the broom before the group pic was taken. That's the 1st one I posted with the caption of "She just flew in from the East".
She made me take it out.
