In terror, she grabs for the horse's mane, but cannot seem to get a firm grip. She tries to throw her arms around the horse's neck, but she slides down the horse's side anyway. The horse gallops along, seemingly impervious to its slipping rider.

Finally, giving up her frail grip, the blonde attempts to leap away from the horse and throw herself to safety.Unfortunately, her foot has become entangled in the stirrup, she is now at the mercy of the horse's pounding hooves as her head is struck against the ground over and over.

As her head is battered against the ground, she is mere moments away from unconsciousness when to her great fortune... Frank, the Walmart greeter, sees her dilemma and unplugs the horse.

And you thought all they did was say Hello.
Yours is my Favorite Post so far,it reminded of my Bro who passed Mar 2007.Dan had a 5th and loved to travel when he wasn't Teaching at Golden Gate Baptist Seminary,but at retirement slowed down because of Heath,but he Loved those "BLOND 'jokes and probable is laughing in heaven now ove this one I Loved it and it make the Wal Mart forum worth while.

Thanks Darrell Boling

On a side note, I'd like to know one thing:

How can a Wal-Mart NOT own the very parking lot any RV'er would want to use for any amount of time? I was pretty certain that the land used for the parking lot was also included in the land used for the actual physical building?

Inquiring minds want to know...
Many Walmarts are simply leases -- Walmart doesn't own the land or the building. So, if the landlord had some restrictions on use in the lease, it would affect what the store could do or say about overnite camping.

They were headed to Canada where she was going to perform.

The staff weren't in the buses because they were going to fly on her Falcon 50.

We got a tour of one of the buses, totally different from a normal Prevost. They had bunks for 12 people each so if anyone wants a good bunk motorhome, they are it.
Last year while heading out west to the National iRV2 rally I ran into Joe Perry's Prevosts parked at a Flying J in New Mexico. Martha and I spent the better part of the evening talking with the driver and checking out each others rigs. We also got some nice freebies to bring home.

I guess that just proves that you can meet nice people at either Wally world or Flying J.

Met Hank Williams Jr., in 1989 while he was on tour.
We were having a very late dinner at a roadside family restaurant in Beaumont, TX when his Prevost pulled in.
The place went country crazy! My waitress lost her mind, forgot about us! I've never been much into Country Music, but the bus was to die for. Hank and the crew were all cool and down to earth. I got some zzz's in the lot while Hank and Co hit the highway.

I wouldn't mind paying $5 or so to hook up to power at a wall mart over night, they could make extra money that way.

Well I hope you didn't actually ask the question exactly that way. I can tell you that if I were parked at a WalMart and someone ask me a question like that, my response would be how about minding your own business....how about trying that for a change.

I was advised by a member on here. if I was to ask what may be taken as a rude question as the two previous posts are discussing. I should only ask after providing the person a glass or two of scotch.

I shop at WalMart get my supplys because I save money then go to
a koa or closest campground and PAY to camp for the night,have water
elect and I can dump in the morning befor I travel to next campground
and feel good that I helped a campground keep running,I think Wal Mart
will always be there.
that is why I brought a 5th wheel to camp at campgrounds not at
Wal Mart If they charged $40. a night would you still camp there

Yeah, but you need the specialized plug that comes with those electric cars to hook into the receptacle. Now if someone could manufacture & market a 50a to EV or 30A to EV adapter they'd make millions with all the folks that O/N at WM.
