Hey Fred, HELLO! This is a Wal Mart parking thread.
It is for us low life's who are so poor that we can't afford a campground, or so cheap that we choose not to. As you sit on your high horse, look around. There are probably many threads on IRV2 dedicated to something you like and agree with. We, on this site, like staying at WM, so we follow this thread to get ideas of where to go or not go, how to behave, and how to get the most bang for our cluck (sorry about that- I just couldn't pass up a WM chicken joke).

So next time you drive by a WM, wave to the Wally Dockers as you pass by on your way to a $40 campground. I'll be sitting inside my motor home, having a cocktail, eating my 6 dollar chicken (which will probably cost more than $40 by time I leave the store), and we will both be happy. Each of us firmly believing that the other one is too ignorant, too stupid, or too obstinate to do everything the way I do them.
Like someone wrote very early on this thread, "If everyone did things the way we do them, everything would be better."
Like I always say, "Everyone is entitled to their own stupid opinion - this is mine."
Jim

My take on that is if everyone ( including DW) did everything like I do, it would be a dull world.

That's the point I was trying to make. Too often on this, and other sites, instead of sharing information, some people just want to justify why their way is the only way. All roads lead to where ever you are going. Some take you directly. Some take you on the scenic route.

I find it quit funny, We will go to SAM's, Next door to Walmart, to get one item. usually vitamins or somthing like that and leave with a regester receipt totalling over 100.00

Francesca has been posting lately in a thread she started about engineering free water. So she is alive and well. I think I read in that thread she was preparing for a boon docking trip.

That WM had 1 class A, 2 class C's, a TT, and 3 Class B's, not including us by the time we pulled out in the morning. Of course we did some shopping while we were there.
Whose rules? Not Wal*Marts as we all know they want us there.

Sorry you are plain wrong, it is theft of services as the WiFi is provided for CUSTOMERS. If you aren't a customer then your stealing bandwidth. Just as though you ate at a restaurant and left without paying. That's the law.

I'm a customer. I was there.... sometime last year. Kinda like the DNC list. If you ever did business with a company, they can call you.
