Making Camp at WalMart

Last month I stopped at our local Walmart south of Mansfield, OH and found a motorhome with it's slides out and lawn furniture set up. Come on people! Its folks like that who will ruin it for all of us. I look for sooner or later the policy being changed to cover the 1% who take advantage of this opportunity.

I guess it would be OK if they just sat on the blacktop? What is wrong with putting a chair down, does it damage the surface? Now if they put out Tiki torches or a campfire ring....

It always amazes me that the people who can afford to buy the most expensive RV's are either to cheap to pay for a campsite or feel that they are owed a free place to camp out...

My thoughts too.

maybe after they blew the money on the motorhome, they don't have enough $$$$ left to camp in a real campground.
