Why is it that no one mentions hearing gas water heaters kicking on and roaring during the night? I had a "neighbor" in a WM tell me that my heater kept waking him. So, I now turn it off right after supper and then turn it back on again around 7:00 AM.
No big deal, no inconvenience, and it saves propane for us.

He must have super hearing. He's free to park somewhere else.

You're more the adult than I would have been. I'd have politely told him about a one player game he could participate in.

How about "Hello, welcome to Walmart". "You may park your RV at the outer fringes of the parking lot." Enjoy the chicken, and thank you for shopping at Walmart".

Good point on the smoke. I don't want to obscure the WM sign in case other weary campers are heading in for the night. Anyone know what WM's policy is on picking up dead branches and sticks on the grassy islands. I know some other CGs forbid this practice.
