2nd Generation Heartland Owners:  Like Father, Like Son

Looking for Adventure? Here's Two Helpful Websites
​I tend to be a 'planner'. We usually have a good idea of where we'll be, when we'll be there, how long we'll be there and what kinds of activities we'll participate while we're there. For some people that's too structured, as they like to 'fly by the seat of their pants'…but for us…it's perfect.When sight-seeing we tend to lean more toward th...
