One thing we can always count on is change and our Heartland Highlights founding Editor, Deb Bylinski has decided it is time for a change for her. Thank you, Deb for the superlative job you have done in bringing the HOC newsletter from just an idea to the wonderful publication it is today.

Our new Editor is Erika Dorsey (TravelTiger) and Heartland Owners Club member #1733. Erika has a BS degree in Communication Arts/Design from East Texas State University, and has worked in the graphic design field for nearly 20 years. In 2011, she began her own business to help small businesses and non-profits with their graphic design and printing needs. Erika is just the person needed to take Heartland Highlights into the future.

Erika's first edition of the newsletter will be the 4th Quarter issue.

Please join me in welcoming Erika as Heartland Highlights Editor.

Thanks everyone for the well-wishes, I feel honored to take over this position. Deb created a wonderful publication, and I hope to continue that trend!

Tony and I started Rving in 2008 when we stepped inside a NorthTrail 21 FBS and it felt like "home". 2 years later, we super-sized our RV to an ElkRidge 34QSRL, we affectionately call "Mammoth". We've been avid forum contributors, camped in all 4-seasons, in 10 different states (so far), been to local and national rallies, and try to get away as often as we can while both of us are still working. We love to meet new folks, so if you see "the Dorsey's Mammoth" out somewhere, please come by and say hi! Oh, and submit a story for the Newsletter! ;)

As soon as I can look at all the Heartland Highlights materials, I'll be formulating a plan for production of Q4 and will let everyone know.

Thank you all for your nice comments. It has been a great experience and I am glad to pass the publication on to Erika! John and I have been so busy with our Northeast Region responsibilities and lately I realized that something had to give. Passing Heartland Highlights on to Erika just made sense for us.

Thanks again and I am so happy (and relieved) that Erika has stepped up. With her experience Heartland Highlights will become a very professional and informative newsletter.

Good Luck Erika!
