I just learned yesterday that WalMart Corporate sent a memo that RVer's are not welcome to stay on their parking lots anymore. That was confirmed by a friend that is a WM Pharmacist. Just FYI.
Ok I just confirmed from a friend of a friend who's brother in laws father is a walmart greeter that Walmart still allows us to camp in their parking lots. I'm glad we have these connections.

I had the same thing happen there last October. I went to my bedroom, put in a DVD, and cranked the voulme high enough to cover most of the noise.


Wally Docking does require that we adapt at times....................

Yep, I've done the same thing but it was at a fair grounds and they were giving rides in a very noisy monster truck. They did quit at 10:00 pm though.

I forgot to add that you must use a gasoline generator. Diesel generators make your throat burn if you eat too many Smores.

I find that smores taste terrible if you use the fumes from a gasoline generator converted to propane. Also don't use the portable propane bonfires as you get the same result!

I think the benzene adds a nice compliment to the marshmellow....while camping at Walmart.

I believe it's a great P.R. effort by Walmart. Most campers are thoughtful. My stay would be for a rest and on the way. Thanks Walmart and don't judge all of us by the few who abuse your hospitality.

Since Halloween is coming up anybody that wants to camp next to a grave yard can at the Super Walmart on Booth Road in Warner Robins, GA.

When they built the parking lot they discovered an abandoned grave yard. Instead of moving it they enclosed it and built around it.
