Sunday, April 14, 2013Today we got up and had a leisurely breakfast, got dressed and walked around the park to visit. Many folks are headed home today, but we paid for an extra night so we could leave later in the day. We visited with folks until the crew thinned and then decided to head to the Casino for a little play. Jay and Stella went too, and we split up to go and find our favorite entertainment. Tony and I both did ok with the Rally-provided $10, coming out ahead.
We all met back up for lunch at the Buffet, which was still serving breakfast items, as well as lunch items, at 12:30. The food was not bad... not great, but not bad. They have now made it affordable if you show your players club card. After visiting and eating too much, we headed back into the Casino to do some more playing. Stella and I went for the penny machines, and Jay headed back to the RV Park... a nap sounded good to him. We played for a while, and I was doing pretty good, so I decided to quit while I was ahead. We tried to coordinate going back to the RV Park together, but somehow I lost Stella! Luckily, we all made it back just fine, thanks to the great shuttle service the Casino runs back and forth to the RV Park.
After we rested a while, we started getting ready to head home. I worked on packing up the inside items, and Tony went out to do the outside prep and dump tanks. It never fails, when we are trying to leave a Rally, suddenly a crowd appears, wanting to chat or say goodbye!

We ended up finally pulling out about 6PM, after giving final hugs to our Heartland friends, one last restroom stop, and kitties loaded in their carrier into the truck. We made good time, and kitties did a little better... but we decided to stop in Rockwall for a bite to eat. We stopped at a McDonalds that is next to a large grocery store, so we could park Mammoth easily and walk over. Tony got us food, and I took the kitties into the Mammoth for a quick stretch.
We ate our dinner and got back on the road. We were home about 8:15, and unloaded the inside items. Overall a great Rally and a fun trip! We look forward to seeing many of these folks again in Goshen, Indiana, in June, for the North American Heartland Owners Club Rally.
