Two. I never put down jacks or awnings or slides out.
Three. I never put anything on the pavement. No trash, gray water, nothing.
Four. Willa always goes ''shopping''..................
Groceries are of the first order and then a long ramble thru the ''Sales'' department and a browse at the jewelry counter and then over to the gadget stuff like a potato splicer or a clock with no hands on it. (for people that dont care what time it is).........
Yep, Walmart parking is FREE.. but I wish the store was closed when we park there.

I hear ya....in 2001 I went to Walmart, spent $300 or so , came out and bought a $25,000 SUV, they were having an automotive tent sale in the parking lot. Could'nt help myself, they had a Tahoe and a Corvette calling my name. Got the Tahoe on the spot and bought a Vette four years later.
Walmart should start selling RV's, they have everything else.

Went back by Wal-Mart in Martinsville. The motorhome in front of the garden center after closer inspection had a 30amp hook-up that was blocked by a bush. Would think he was the manager still looking for housing or has a really good friend. By the way I saw no spikes in the pavement to anchor the portable satellite dish.

Or maybe a vendor. Some of them stay in RV's. I know some of the vendors for Lowe's does. They park in the Lowe's parking lot for a few days and then leave. You can recognize the Lowe's vendors by the red vest that has VENDOR emblazoned across it. I've noticed a lot of the anti wallydocking folks make assumptions about anyone who stays in a parking lot for more than overnight. They are automatically freeloaders or other names. Some of these folks could be working at the store they are parked at. But it is up to the store manager who stays and who doesn't as well as for how long!

We stayed at at Walmart for the first time this past weekend in Cedar City, UT. We watched a DVD from one spot, but couldnt level,so we moved accrossed the lot. The worst night I ever spent!! Noisey................all night long. Cabela's was a dream though. Never again at a Walmart.

Hey Chuck,

Did you sleep in the 05 Admiral or the 65 GMC Handi-Van?

If you slept in the Handi-Van, of course you couldn't level because hydraulic levelers probably weren't standard equipment on that model in 1965

And that being the case, of course you couldn't sleep since the aluminum floor was cold and you had to share floor space with the Harley

George

The trick is to sleep INSIDE of the store, the parking lot is the noisiest spot you can choose. Isle 25, air mattress with memory foam on top, fitted sheets and a nice comforter. The best thing is you don't have to make up the bed, don't forget your McRoast on the way out. Hmmmm.....with everything Wally has, who needs a MH, that '65 van is all that is needed.
