Sunday September 11, 2011-Hershey Conewago campground

We woke to our first morning here in Hershey PA to warmer temperatures but still not bad. At least its not raining and most of the flooding is gone now. We ate a little breakfast and watched the very moving 911 memorials on television.

Around noon, we went to the RV-Dreams rally that is being held at the Thousand Trails Hershey Preserve campground. We have been invited to the rally as Heartland Ambassadors.

We met Howard and Linda about five years ago at one of our Texas Boomer rallies at Rayford. They were just getting started in their full-time lifestyle and we have kept up with them since then through their blog and by running into them a few times at different locations. The latest time to see them was when they weighed rigs at the last Heartland National rally in Goshen.

Here is Stella sitting at our display table. We had brochures from 15 different Heartland brands and everyone that came by had a look at them. The most popular units were the Landmark and Bighorn and we actually ran our of Landmark brochures at one point but luckily we had more in the truck.

Linda firing up the crowd and getting the rally started. They have been doing rallies for a few years now and really have it down!

The crowd, sitting patiently waiting to begin eating. The catered meal went very well and everyone had a good time. I know we did! We met a lot of new people and hopefully will be able to keep in touch with them in the future.

They played a couple of games and we gave away our door prizes, and everyone was having a great time at the rally. When we got ready to leave, we found that it had started raining which made our drive back home a bit of a problem, We were on narrow unfamiliar roads, after dark and raining, so we had a miserable drive back, but we made it.

So long.
