Well said Chuck !

No intent here to be radical or extremist or even to try and corner the market on doo-good, just a basic intent that common sense rules and courtesies can be positive. I do not seek out trouble nor do I intentionally place myself in harm's way, however when it steps up and slaps me across the cheek I am not a pacifist and won't be turning the other cheek.

Many good, some not so good threads on this topic. A lot of things to consider and be concerned about, most are automatically reasoned out before I act. But I will act... and I will try my best to preserve the things we all find dear and near to our hearts, freedom, courtesies, common sense.

If you enjoy your freedom Thank a Vet !

Most of the Walmarts here is Oregon to my knowledge are posted no camping or overnight stays, period. We once parked for the day in the Walmart in Eugene, Oregon and about 20 minutes later a security guard came knocked on the door and asked us to move.
When asked about staying overnight they said it was city ordinace that no overnight camping was allowed.

The asphalt would more readily deform from tires than the jacks with a 16" pad....but why let facts obscure a good discussion

Jim,

FYI...One has to be a member (by subscribing) of the particular Yahoo group to be able to view what you've got linked.

How is it one careless match can start a forest fire but it takes a whole box to start a campfire?

Check in a Walmart store where they sell maps there is a Rand McNally Walmart edition that has all the US walmart locations in them but does not list if they allow overnight parking.

I can't remember off hand if it includes Canadian locations.

Not very expensive either.

If you have a smart phone, you can get the allstays app that has all campgrounds, Wal-Marts, etc and links into maps and gps.

Safety first

I have a suggestion that I feel is a good idea if you are parking at WM. I have placed high reflection safety stickers on the sides of my slides so they are very visible to any traffic passing through the parking lot. There is always some idiot that may clear the RV and not give any thought to the slides. Maybe it's over kill, but it makes me feel better. By the way, the slides are the same ones that I should not put out while at WM. I love my wife but I don't think she appreciates me crawling over her when the slides are in. LOL
