I hear you. I drink from the fresh water holding tank but the pups and the DW use bottled water only. I would guess the next biggest thing we purchase on the road would be snacks and lunch stuff.

Sounds like fun!

Guess it's just my low class "cracker" side coming out!
They'd have to break out the BBQ grills... you know the ones... home made from a 55 gallon drum cut in half lengthwise with a cutting torch!

Several years ago we went to Yellowstone via the Black Hills and while straying at the RV park in Cody,we went to the Wal-Mart to do some shopping.
There in the parking lot were three Prevosts parked in a three sided square all with their jacks down and slides out,awnings out and grass carpets spread out with all their chairs and BBq's set-up..The asst manager said that they had been there for 4 days already and had not set foot in the store..Just pulled in and set-up and went out every day. He said that they were going to put a note on their doors later that day asking them to leave. They hadn't even had the courtesy to ask if they could stay there. He also said that everyone of the other rigs in the lot had at least come in and asked and all had bought things.
I'll just betcha that all three of these people probably hit every forum and ranted at how bad the people at Wal-mart were.
In twenty years of rving,I have yet to avail myself of the pleasure of an o'nite stay in a Wal-mart and don't figger I ever will. I'll patronize the local rv parks first.

Ask family who was alive then if it was fun for anyone.

some reading for you:
Hooverville - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

and the other reference too:

Just drove thru a couple popular local CG's. WoW they have them rv's packed in there like sardines. When it comes to weekends, most CG's are the last place to park. Walmart here I come!

Really? OK, I believe you! The only problem with the story is that Prevost's don't have jacks! I wonder how they put a non-existent thing dow? There's no Prevost envy here is there?

Sorry, I'm not THAT old! But I do read. The Hooterville folks sound like more fun. Or can't we have fun any more? guess not.

I guess it's like signs that say " security cameras in use". May make someone think twice.

We appreciate Walmart letting us stay in the parking lots, almost always call first or go in, just to be sure, because there are some places that don't allow it (campgrounds close by, etc.). But we keep a low profile, also. It's nice to run in and get supplies too!

But putting out a sign that says "I'm not armed" may also may make someone think twice.

You guys are making me chuckle. We have "Ontario" plates on our rig. Criminals know Canadians don't have guns.
