I understand completely and do appreciate the heads-up on that Wal-Mart. Those darned yellow bars are showing up at places where I've been accustomed to swinging into in the past. And, like others are doing, I do scope out parking lot entries before hand with Google's street view. Big problem there is ... those photo runs may be months or years old. Any new additions to the parking lot entries would not be caught by the Google camera. This fact makes me extremely cautious when approaching a parking lot entry and a fuel stop. In the case of some of the major truck stops, entries get "improvements" that sometimes have my head on a swivel trying to see what the new traffic pattern is.
It's all fun to talk about afterward, but at the time, the pucker factor registers high.
