How old is yours? Mike's had his since he was 18, he's in his mid thirties now. He'd love a new one, but like me, hasn't had health insurance in quite sometime and as far as I know those units don't traditionally come cheap.

Now, not only does Wal*Mart offer free RV parking, but also....

BINGO!

I'm on my third CPAP now and it's about 5 years old, the second one was 15 (the Dr. was amazed by how many hours it had run) and my first one went 5 years also. My present Respironics unit runs on 120 or 12 V, although when in the MH I run it on the 2000 watt MSW inverter.

When I got my new Bi-Pap, I gave my 7 year old C-Pap to a charity and claimed a $200 deduction from my taxes. There are many of them out there I am sure. Many people (like me) are switching from C-Pap's to Bi-Pap's and there should be a lot of fairly new C-Pap's out there for very little or nothing. I know Blue Cross says the unit is yours after a year of continuous usage of at least 4 hours nightly as proved by the compliance card.

With so much posting about the "BiPap" maybe it's time it has it's own thread?

If it does get one the recent past posts about it here could be moved to that thread as well.

The Bi-Pap, C-Pap thread is related to Wal-Marting in that some of us are able to run this electrical devise without running our generators and others are trying to do so. This not only makes better RV parking citizens, but saves a lot of money.

It all makes sense to me now. Was walking through the WM lot wearing my rebel flag nascar shirt after having picked up a case of beer and some diapers, and someone came out of an RV, pointed at me and yelled "BINGO!". Yes, it all makes sense to me now.

That Lowe's guard I talked to... Well, there is a WM at the opposite end of the shopping center, so I think it would be a non-issue in that lot.

I used to go to Walmart with a former GF to get her some beer. When we got to the check-out counter, I would loudly say: "Here you are buying beer again and your three kids are sitting home in diapers, needing shoes and clothes and blah, blah, blah....."

Three kids and desperate to be married. I told her she would have to find someone who would put up with her constant complaining, beer drinking and being Mrs. Right, Mrs. Always Right.

I need to go to the WM in Glendale, AZ for some rattle can flat black and also ask if overnighting is allowed. The way Glendale is, I wouldn't put it past them to have a revenue generating ordinance against it. Glendale is so bad, that several years ago, they said they would start ticketing for 1 MPH over the speed limit. Don't think is stuck.

Dunner,
I didn't know you were dating my ex-wife. Be careful taking her to Walmart, for some reason people keep snapping photos of her. Always is her middle name. Queen is her first. I'll give you 40 bucks to keep her.

She was so desperate to be married, she married a guy with 5 kids, all still at home.

I'm off to WM for some supplies before it gets too hot here. Not even 8AM and it's already 80s.

What do they call people who take pictures of Walmartians? I'm asking; I don't know.

Colorado Springs tried to turn their police force into revenue agents a few years ago but it didn't last long either. Hey, if everybody pleaded not guilty for a couple weeks that would end it anyway. And if it didn't, appeal and demand a jury trial. The courts would love a few hundred of those on the dockets.

Went to WallyWorld and got my rattle can paint. On the way to the registers, I stopped by the deli and asked how much the Roto-Chicken was. She pointed to a sign($5.48). I asked what flavors they had and could only understand lemon, so I knew it was lemon pepper. The other flavor was un-recognizable. I later found out it was Roasted Herb and Garlic. The WM chickens are big. I thought they were like Fry's sells; Cornish Game hen size.

On the way out, I stopped by the Courtesy desk and ask if this WM allowed over-night RV parking. The associate told me it depends on which security guard is on duty(What?). He said one might allow it and another one might run me off. I looked for the security guard and if he's guarding a Walmart, it ain't this one.

BTW, as someone else posted, The Walmart Greeter is no more.
