No one has mentioned it's Walmart's 50th anniversary, have they? Officially it was July 2, but they're celebrating all year. Maybe besides rotisserie chicken we can also get cake!! Just don't eat it outside.

It's OK as long as you put the bones and wrapper in trash can. Don't throw them down on the lot.

Is the chicken really that good? How does it compare to other brands of rotisserie chicken?

I'm sure other stores or malls would allow overnight parking by RVer's if they would only ask.
We've given up on Walmarts because they get a bit crowded, and there are too many "sheep" wanting to park as close to us as possible. Not sure what they are afraid of, but often if we are there first, by nightfall there are a heap of others parked so close that we can barely open the door. Fix is to wait until they have stopped milling around and then move right over to the other side of the lot. -

AND anyway - Walmart doesn't have free WiFi

SO - on the basis that if I'm going to be regarded as a free-loader, I may as well go for all possible perks.

So as others have mentioned, there are plenty of other stores that don't mind if asked first, and who have nice powerful wifi 24/7 as well

and dump points!!!

Exactly...don't litter up the campground.

We have a mifi so we are covered when it comes to internet. I would try to get an open site at WM so that I could set up my Direct HD dish. WM is great for satellites. Even the trees in the islands are small enough to offer some shade but not block satellite reception.

Actually, their cousin Sam's generally has bigger and better rotisserie chickens. But if the real truth be known, I'd park at Walmart and slip down the street to Popeye's for some fried chicken. My cardiologist not understanding and God forgiving this poor sinner his downfalls, I'm gonna have a couple of fried chicken wings (mild please) from Popeye's every so often as long as a merciful God grants me breath to breathe.

I had Verizon unlimited for years. They finally slowed it down to where it was faster for me to walk the message over. As much as I use it is not economically feasible for me to enter into any of the limited contracts, so I must once again rely upon the very frail system of free wifi while I'm on the road. I'm glad I like Tacos and Big Macs.

No need to add to your waistline to get free internet. Home depot, Fred Myer, Officeworks, Safeway et al often have strong signals out in the carpark, but the one we use mostly is supplied by Main Street USA - meaning whatever hotel/motel/coffeeshop/fast food/RV park has a decent signal wherever we stop. Never any need to hack into a network because there are plenty of businesses who make it freely available and even welcome you on their home page.

But just to keep on-topic. We do also use Walmart as an overnight stop when we are travelling. Always with permission and rarely would be not need at least a few dollars worth of groceries.

I wonder when Walmart will finally offer wifi in their parking lot.

Good new for all you Verizon people with a unlimited data plan. You can park at Walmart and have your WIFI also! Just make sure you get a 4 g smart phone, download FOXFI, and use your smart phone as WIFI hotspot.

Will this also work with a Galaxy unit? I have a thing about supporting Apple Anything. I once posted about the American Dream not being dead and used Steve Jobs as proof. I was afraid for my life about half way through that thread.
