There is a Droid app called truckstops. It has a tab for searching for WMs, by city or highway. I tried looking for Peachtree City and it accurately reflects that no oversized vehicles allowed. It is also good at listing RV services at truckstops/rest areas. Didn't cost much IIRC.

I've stayed in several Walmarts over the years. I have always checked in with the manager and asked their permission. They have always been friendly and accomadating. I have put out my bedroom slide only when getting ready to retire for the night. I've used a generator ONLY when necessary. Great place to spend the night when travelling.
Walmart, in Lacey Twp. New Jersey even has a spot with water and electric hookup.

Hmmm.............................

Maybe if I tell DW that it's a "pumpkin pie experimental kitchen meet" she will come with me.

I wonder if that would damage my cred. with her?

I buy my pumpkin pie. Why?
less bruises, no one loses. Wal*Mart pies don't have bruises.

You don't know that for a fact. Maybe they're secretly, emotionally bruised because of what is happening to their kin. It's a traumatizing moment to a pumpkin to see it's brethren hurled thru the sky and smashed into pie material as they plummet into the ground; their seeds of life scattered for miles around. Their only redemption being that those said seeds will sprout into a life that can possibly reach maturity and become an object of the isles of an all night Walmart. And further more..... Ah, never mind; I gotta stop; it's starting to bring tears to my Is.

Hmmmm... How did it go from "You don't know that for a fact" and "Maybe they're secretly, emotionally bruised" to "It's a traumatizing moment blah blah hurled thru the sky blah blah pie material "
Are you a part of this sacred sect? Or are you one with the Great Pumpkin? Linus Dunner, the secret squash agent!
Wal*Mart Parkers, Beware- "Monsters & Aliens Mutant Pumpkins from Outer Space" is a propaganda film!

"You said less bruises". I'm pointing out that they get more than bruises.

All this talk of abused pumpkins may get us banned. Pumpkins shot from GUNS? Oh boy.
