Well consider us in if we ever get our rig back from Clovis RV. Hope to see lots more people from anywhere in CA to support the local socal chapter. Apr 24-26 sounds perfect as we leave for Cancun on our annual timeshare visit on May 1st.

Well, so far we have some interest in the rally. We have about 6-7 weeks to put this together. So where are all the Socal Heartland owners?? Click on the 5th line (April 24th-26th) down on the portal page under rallies. It will take you to the next page and click on the link there for the discussions page. Bob:D

Hi everyone,
We are in Las Vegas for a couple of days to help my DW's dad, and had the pleasure to have dinner with lamontagne's last nite. Art and Cindy have indicated they will be coming to the rally in Anaheim if they can, as they are planning a CA trip for Apr and/or May. Let's get some more folks interested. Bob, why don't you PM them to give them details. It's very difficult to find this discussion page.

Bob&Patty
03-04-2009, 01:02 PM
Thanks Lar for the info. Not sure why it is hard to find? 2 clicks and you are on the dicussion page. Just the way J.B. wants it. Bob:confused:

Hopefully this isn't a triple post-I'm having a bit of trouble navigating around here-my fault not yours!

Anyway, we would like to make this rally if possible and if we have purchased our Big Country by then. It's local for us-good thing since we are brand new to RVing and have no experience driving one around. Would this be a "kid friendly" place? We need them to stay busy so we can have fun too. Ages 17, 14, 12, and 8. Might also bring along a couple of dogs.

Cris

The place is very kid friendly, and there is plenty of lawn area for the dogs. As long as the dogs don't fit into one of the agressive breeds, they are welcome at the park. This is one of my favorite 'in close' parks.

Dennis

Bob&Patty
03-10-2009, 10:19 PM
Cris, yes it is as Dennis stated. Coach or not your welcome to come and join us. This seems to be the place get the newbies started. We had 3, I believe that started here last year. They are all doing just fine. Remember that if you dont know, just ask. Bring a note pad if you come and take notes. We are here to help. Bob:D

Bob,
Are you reserving the sites or should we call to make our own reservations? We will be there Apr 24-26, leaving on the 26th or 27th. Debbi has to make that call as we are out of the country on May 1st. Got the strong impression from her we will be leaving on Sunday. LOL She needs to prepare to go to Cancun! Whadya got to do to prepare for that? And I was one of those newbies, rookies, whatever! 10,000 miles later, I still don't know what I am doing, but it sure is fun!

dtvista and I just camped together at San Clemente State Park, 3 exits from our home. It had all full hookups, and close to the ocean with big firepits, if anyone wants to visit in this direction, give us a lookup.

Bob&Patty
03-19-2009, 10:17 AM
Thanks for for the up date Lar. I have been wondering where everybody is. I will call the CG today and find out what spots are available and post it here. So far we have only 3 interested in coming. Bob
:D

Bob&Patty
03-23-2009, 06:25 PM
Well folks, as of today I only know of 3 people that are ready to commit to a rally in April on the 24th-26th. Our normal spots are already taken. Suzi told me they have a few left together down by the river. So if anyone else is planning to come, I need to know really soon. If this time of year is not working for people, just let me know and we can make it at a later date. Bob:D

Cmon socalers, lets sign up for this rally on apr 24-26. We need all the support we can get. It's only for a weekend and I promise Bob will tell you all old time cowboy stories, about when he was young in the 1940's and a hot stud muffin.

Bob&Patty
03-24-2009, 11:24 PM
I am calling tomorrow to reserve my spot. Will post later what it is then. Sandman is also going to call tomorrow also. It may just be the 3 or 4 of us. Bob

To the Socal Heartland gang. I called this morning and reserved the camp sites. They are 106 to 110 and 107 to 113. 6 sites total. They are across from each other. I have site #107. So I need to know how many are coming within a week or we will loose some of the sites. The Phone # is posted on the 1st page. Tell them you are with the Heartland group. Here is a link to the park. http://canyonrvpark.com Bob:D

03-25-2009, 09:57 PM
FYI, today I begged and pleaded and got sites real close to where we always go. They are a little farther east. As of tonite, I think I might have to call and beg some more. We might just have more that 6 HL's. Will call Suzi in the morning. Bob:D

We've got our reservation in for the 24th and 25th! Site 111. Unfortunately it's not a pull thru. :( We'll be in San Jose that week, so will have to boogie to make it on the 24th as we won't be able to head south before afternoon. Hopefully it will work out!

Hi Bob & Patty and others attending,

I thought I'd let you know that when Amy and I show up we will be newlyweds. Yes that's right. Amy and I are getting married on Tuesday, April 21, 2009 at 5 P.M. on the beach in Pismo Beach, CA. It will be a barefoot wedding in the sand on what's suppose to be beautiful warm day.

Bob if you have a chance, would you please call me Sunday afternoon? Hopefully you still have my number.

Well, we weren't sure if we were even going to get our rig in time, but everything managed to come together, so we'll be there.

We're looking forward to our first rally and meeting those of you we haven't yet. We're as green as they come, and we still have a lot to learn, so please be gentle with us. :D

Linda is making a Corn/Green Bean/Tomato Salad for the Pot Luck.

See you Friday!

Well our Socal rally is over now. We had 6 coaches. 3 people are regulars, 2 newbees, and 1 from out of state. We really had a great time. Weather was good, no rain. Saturday night we had the normal pot-luck. After that we had a little wedding reception with cake and ice cream for Dave and Amy (DW_Gray). They were married on 4-21-2009, the Tuesday before the rally. We (the old timers) were glad to share tips with the new owners so that they can avoid mistakes we made when we were newbees. As 2 of them are going to go full time. All in all it was a great time seeing old friends and meeting new ones. Patty and I want to thank everybody that came and made it so much fun. Bob:D
Attending were:
Dave and Amy- 4012 cyclone
Larry and Debbi-3400RE
Arthur and Cindy-3055RL
Marty and Theresa-Sundance
Steve and Linda-3600RL
Bob and Patty-2955RL

Hey all,

Amy and I returned safely to our home on Tuesday. We sure had a great time. I have the group picture ready to post but don't know where to do so. Bob said in the gallery but all I found was the HOG and there are no other pictures there. So where?
