I've said it before, these rallies can be addictive. Can't stop at just one.

Glad you can make it to the MA rally. Unfortunately Ginger and I aren't going to make this one. My job is taking me out of state that week. Dang work.

Enjoy and safe travels.

T Minus One Week!!!

We are a week away - and things are falling into place! Excited to meet my Fellow MA Heartland Owners ( the ones I have not met yet ) and seeing others that I have not see all year long.

Email is going out tomorrow with details on schedule and the heartland gives back. We have selected a local food bank right in Shelburne Falls - and they will be coming out to meet with us and collect our donations on Saturday. For those of you coming out in advance of the weekend Glenn, Sharon and I will be there trying to figure out what we are doing :)
and wrapping up the details that I am sure we had not thought of ahead of time.

Safe Travels all - And See yo in Shelburne Falls!

For those of you thinking about a trip down to the Big-E Fair, Great – Be aware that weekends are the busiest time for the faire and traffic is heavy so an early start is a must. If your schedule permits I would suggest that you attend on a week day, Monday – Thursday and take in the other things in the area on the weekend.

Well we are all set up and rigs are starting to roll in. Glenn, Sharron and I have been working out the details of our plans. Always working I say. This morning we got together to taste test a selection of baked goods to select the local bakery that was going to supply our faire for Sat morning ... I know hard to take but someone has to do it... I want to thank Pat and Ed for jumping in and helping out ... ( saved me at least one or two extra pounds )

WE are also working on finding a local restaraunt to dine out at tomorrow night for the early arrivals. if you are planning on being here for 6pm tomorrow night and would like to join us for dinner please send me an email @ kmb@kmbit.com and let me know... it would be good to know who is planning on going. I'm headed out shortly to scope out a few local locations that have been recommended to us.

Saturday night we will have the Pot Luck Dinner and we will also have the director of the regional food bank on hand to accept our food donations as well as the proceeds from the Friday night 50/50 Raffle that is going to be held for their benefit.

Look forward to seeing you all this weekend!! The Weather could not be Better for Camping !!!

Retired
32 new solid lug nuts - check
Case of Progressive Products Liquid tire balancer - check
New Viair compressors later today - check

Well right now it is set - we do not have wheels to travel with. But, if they arrive and get installed by tomorrow, we will still make the run, just stay later.
Was really looking forward to checking out the Bridge of Flowers that we passed on the way home last week.

So much for comparing internet connectivity Kevin ........

Looks like it's going to be a beautiful weekend for a Heartland Rally in MA. We are so bummed we can't be there. 1300 miles so far this week for work. Can't wait to be done. That many miles, I should be heading somewhere fun, not this crap.

Have fun!! Post some pics.

We are a no-go. My truck is dead, accelerator pedal position sensor went. And with it being a manual transmission, no one carries one in stock. If the one my buddy ordered is right, we'll be late. If it's not, which I doubt it is, we hope you all enjoy the weekend.
