Wallydocking, would you?

See many of you are in mourning about the loss of the Walmart thread. I think a new thread is in order about some spirited conversation on the ins and outs of Wallydocking.

In case a few of you are not aware, Wallydocking is the fine art of Boondocking overnight only at a Walmart. After a long day of driving, it's very convenient to just pull in a Walmart, go in and buy stuff you need for supper, stretch you legs, visit the camping department, and then go ask the store manager for permission to park there.

Should we use slides? Build campfires or use our grills? Run our Gennys all night? How about awnings and patio mats? That asphalt can get pretty hot you know.

Let's try and keep it civilized so we don't get shut down.

I don't know about you, but I miss the thread. It was posted on all night long.;( :( ;(

I try and park so my bedroom slide is over a grassy area otherwise we can't get around the bed. That also lets us have the main slide out if we want.
If I need to I run the generator and I have moved so it didn't bother others as much.
I don't put the awning out, I don't need it to get a few hours sleep.
I go in and buy some food and ask, or we hit a close by restaurant for dinner akter asking the manager at Wal*Mart if it's OK.

Well, I guess that shows US who's in charge of deciding when enough's enough!

Folks, after almost 6,000 posts on this topic in the last thread, there is nothing to be said that is not in the other thread.
