Jim, I don't know when the last time you were at Coffee Creek, but they have really fixed the place up. It is well maintained and it now has full cable for those that don't have satellite. We stop there several times a year and have watched the progress.

I have never been there. I do look forward to going to this rally though. I have registered on the rally website but need to contact the CG on Monday.

Our Prowler will probably be in the shop then getting the axles fixed, so we won't be on the road until after we get that done.

Perhaps next year?

Jack it up and bend the axle back....:)... Next year may just have used paper.,,, but OK.. your choice.

Hi,
Can non-Heartland owners attend this Rally ? Looks to be pretty close to us. We have a Columbus 5th Wheel. Also do you have to sign up for all the dates or could we attend just the weekend? Sorry for all the questions, we have never attended a rally before .
Thanks!

Hi jlsr,

This rally is sponsored by RV.Net and is open to everyone. If you visit the linked website, you'll find there are a number of non-Heartland RVs registered already along with the agenda so you can plan your stay.

Hi Dan and jslr,

Dan, the Texas Sweetheart RV (http://rvrally.net/) rally is not sponsored by rv.net. RV.net is given recognition as sponsor for use of the rv.net forum where it was first started about 16 years ago. Our main sponsors are Heartland RVS (https://www.heartlandrvs.com/) and our Heartland Owners Forum (https://heartlandowners.org/content.php) and ExploreUSA (http://www.exploreusa.com/). We also have quite a few other sponsors that donate items and gifts. We list all sponsors on the Texas Sweetheart RV Rally web site with links to their site for a year also.

The Texas Sweetheart RV rally is open to all brands and types of RV's. And jslr, if you only want to come for a couple of days, just let it be known when you register and make your reservations with the park. Come and join us and meet lots of great folks.

Hey Heartlanders attending the Texas Sweetheart Rally...

Do you have a non-Heartland RVing friend that might want to join you for some rally fun? Invite them to join the Texas Sweetheart rally. There are still plenty of sites left.

Hi Jack and Lynette - happy to hear you registered for this rally. Please note - it is NOT a Heartland rally - through there are a LOT of Heartlanders who go to it. It's an all-brands rally. I/we are not the organizers, so I'm not taking names.

There is a small group of founders of this rally that are the organizers. The ring leader is Larry Ulmer. Great guy.

By the way, if you have only reserved a campsite with the campground, you now need to register for the rally on the rally website. Here's a link to it: http://rvrally.net/Reservations.htm Only takes a few minutes to register.

See you there!

Cleared the snow out of the driveway around the Sundance today and as soon as it warms up enough to move in the slides tomorrow we're on our way. We hope to pull into Coffee Creek on Monday. Looking forward to seeing all of you. Jim P.

Jim, pack some winter jackets and shorts. Weather has been wacky! Today in the 90s, Tuesday will be in the 40s, then Friday back to 70s.

We go here about 6, but took longer to set up due to E-6 on the EMS -- low power on L-2. It read 1 volt! Park sent a guy right away and he fixed it. Good power both legs. :)

Having a great time at the Sweetheart Rally!

Special thanks to Heartlanders Jason and Roy, with an aluminum scrap from Ed, for replacing (new one from Heartland under warranty) and strengthening our "floppy fender" that had cracked and broken... they did this while Tony was at work today.

Glad you guys made it safely! It was good to see y'all again, that's the problem with traveling with an RV, you don't get to see friends very often. Thank goodness for social media, at least we can keep track of each other!!!

Yep, home for a few hours then had to evacuate due to a tornado warning. Should have stayed in Santo! Waiting it out at the rest area near Ranger that has a tornado shelter.

We are back home after a great rally in spite of a little nasty weather. As always great food and it is always nice seeing all our RV friends and meeting new ones. Peggy and I want to thank all the folks who made this possible with a special thanks to Larry, Jim M., Jim B., Kevin and Nelly and all the others who helped them! The down side is now we have to wait a whole year to do it again.
