Larry and Judy did another great job of putting the Sweetheart Rally together. I would just say Larry,,, but I know Judy was his helper and pusher. We did need to travel a little, but everything worked out great. Had some new folks and lots of attendees from past Sweetheart Rallies.
Next year we will be back at Buckhorn Lake RV as in the past.
Thanks Larry and Judy for a great job and great rally.
Travel safe and our prayers are with you.

Didn't see any comments about the peanut brittle. Does that mean no one is interested? I'm still in Blanco and can leave more of it here if needed.
I need some peanut brittle...:) We are planning on making a batch or two while we are there. Not that it's full of sugar or anything like that.. but just good stuff.
And I get to keep score.
Count me out if your keepin score...:D
And we will make our own rules... they will still be Texas Rules. :B
And I got a cork in a bottle and two nuts on bolts in a bottle.
Sounds like you had a very bad delivery and PDI. I would like to invite you to the Heartland Owners Forum. We cannot help you with the poor dealer you have, but can help you with suggestions, mods, repairs as needed and contacts for support.
Hi Tom and Bonnie,
Sorry you will not be attending again, just hope everything gets better for you guys.
GM and also me,,, right now would like to have an extra blanket..it is cold here in S. Tex. Went 32* last night here in GW..expected to be 26--28* tonight. Going to be around 20* tonight in Kerrville.
There is also a couple of other things... coral snake, black widow spider, brown recluse spider, and last but not least is the frightening, legendary Chupacabra.
Also if you camp near a canal or fresh water..we do have alligators also.
No one needs to worry about Grey Mountain this summer. He has been instructed to attend the Sweetheart Rally in Feb. So when he departs Kerrville he will be a real Sweetheart, nice gentle, easy going but may still smell and look a little bad,, but he will be tame. :)
First,, your going to need more than a few hours to tour the San Antonio area. I would suggest you plan on 2-3 days. Camp at the KOA in SA or Alamo Fiesta RV in Boerne, Tx. At KOA, you can board the SA bus system and for $2-3 can ride all over town,, get on and off,, I think there are 3 different routes, and you can do'em all,, and the drivers tell you what they are coming up on.. visit the Alamo, the Missions, the Market Square.. The River Walk. If you should camp at Alamo Fiesta,, it's only 20-30 minute drive to downtown SA.. park in parking garage and use the bus system. When you have had enough of San Antonio,,(hard to do) you could tour the hill country area. Kerrville, Fredericksburgh both have lots of things to see and places to eat. I would suggest you spend a week in the area and at Alamo Fiesta RV as a center location.
I can't help you much in La.. but there is lots of good food there.
When you come to Texas I would suggest you travel IH 10 through Houston area to San Antonio, TX. There are nice RV places around.. I would suggest Alamo Fiesta RV Resort just West of SA on the edge of town of Boerne, TX. Not a fancy place, but nice, easy on and off freeway, close to a lot of things to visit. And its only a 30 minute drive to downtown SA.
In San Antonio plan on at least 3 days. Tour the downtown area, easy access. Visit the Alamo and some of the old Missions and the River Walk. You can park in one of the buildings downtown, ride the bus all over for one fee, on and off all you want. I think they have 3 different routes you can use.
Then your not far from the hill country, Kerrville, Tx,, Fredericksburg and lots of other places.
Spend 3-4 nights in Alamo Fiesta and move to Kerrville for 3-4 nights at the Buckhorn Lake Resort, very nice place and tour the hill country from there.
Jimtoo. I ment 190. Typed in wrong #. That is my usual route.
Normally come down through Tyler off I-20. Was just wondering about the other route I posted.
Learned my lesson first time in TX. Avoide Austin.
OK Tom,,,be good to see you guys. I have not traveled the other part in years, so I can't say good or bad.
OK local Texan's.
Anyone know what HWY 43/79/84 is like?
Usually travel the Tyler, TX route and spend a night in Tyler.
Will pick up I-35 to 290 to 281.
Tom,, I would suggest you take 190 at Belton over to 281 at Lampasas. Don't go any place near Georgetown,, Austin area. We are hearing nothing but horror stories about I-35 in that area. My son on his Harley spent 2 hours traveling about 50 miles about 3-4 weeks back and he is not the only one to complain about it.
Used that one also.. works pretty good. I just used the same, but 1 tbls margarine and if I use dry roasted, I wait to add after about 4 min and then finish cooking.
I wonder if adding a little more Baking soda would make it more tinder.. gets pretty hard in places, and also adding a little water.. 1 or 2 oz to replace what is lost from sugar and karo boiling. You add water to it when it is cooked on the stove.
