It would be natural to think that this couple disappeared from a Walmart parking lot except for the fact that I stated they were not parked at a Walmart. The conversation was on safety so I feel the story fits. OK?

Parked right nest to each other about 2 lanes over are a *pristine* 40'+ Bus Conversion/DP w/ SUV toad and then a pos old beater the guy has to fill the up gas using Jerry Cans (I think he is sort of living here).

Amazing dichotmy of the American cross section.

I've been making the rounds all over for years before this trip in my RV... and had the folks in nice rigs look askance when I'd park next to them in my old Escort Wagon in a WalMart lot. The striking change is the number of those in these real beaters (RV's but all sorts of cars too) who don't have much other choice but.

If they ever got together and all headed in one direction...

The topic of safety brings up a question for me. Not to change the subject or bring up an "off topic" thread but what about carrying a firearm in your coach? I have a Florida Concealed Weapons Permit this would get me by in some states with reciprocity. BUT what do most people do? Could you tell me where to go to ask this question

I'd suspect that those who do pretty much don't talk about it...
whatever they me driving or riding at the time.

but as to safety at a WalMart:
this has got to be considered in the context of the neighborhood the store is located in.

Most WM lots where RV'ing people stop are in nicer suburban - leaning to rural locations within a mile or two of the Interstate... about as asafe as can be.

Ok a slight turn off topic. Both the DW and I have CCW permits and the MH is "loaded" at all times. I obey the laws of all states and if I can't carry there I don't travel there. Here is a great link to state Reciprocity. http://www.usacarry.com/concealed_ca...city_maps.html
This topic has been covered here just do a search on guns.

We have signs on the front and back of our rig that indicate no firearms on board so we have to exercise even more caution.

Interesting, what is the purpose of advertizing you don't have any firearms in your rv?

I just returned from Santa Barbara CA, and I found it AMAZING....

There were 15-20 year old RV's parked all over the roads! And these were not "restored" vintage RV's, these were real "beaters"...

WHile I don't know if these were someone's home, or just someone's project, but the sheer number of these truly AMAZED me!

Is this what we have come to as a nation...families living on the streets, or in Wal*Marts?

I don't know what's wrong with Americans showing some pioneer spirit and taking care of themselves instead of waiting on the government to take care of them. Ok I know off topic and political. Back on topic what is your most purchased item when staying overnight at a Wal-Mart

Bottled water. We don't drink the on board water so we buy the bottles for drinking and gallon jugs for coffee.
