I agree about the comments from the "whiners"...

Something to consider though (and doubly important to ask the manager first) is that some municipalities have enacted zoning laws that prohibit "camping" in certain parts of their boundaries. The Wal-Mart where I used to live fell into this situation and "campers" were ticketed by the local boys in blue.

I've seen all manner of RVs with slides out, but never anyone grilling or the like. Seems most people are doing exactly what another poster suggested - catching up on some sleep before getting back on the road.

Hey, have fun. Don't worry what anyone else thinks - they're just jealous!

Hello VTR Pat,

I dont think people should attack you the way they did about your post. Part of the problem is the spelling of Wal-mart (or Walmart or Wal Mart, etc) that makes search utilities not return findings. We have all asked questions that have been addressed in the past.

CampingNuts posted the link I was looking for (somehow lost from bookmarks/favorites) so I hope you are all set.

VTR Pat,
For some strange reason folks will jump all over you on the forum and flame people for the most simple questions. But get them out on the road and they will spend hours explaing those same things and try to help you come up with a better way to do anything.
Maybe it is just the computer that brings out the hostility. We all need to get out and smell the roses.

Howdy everyone, I am new to towing a trailer and new to this forum, only been on about a week. I was getting a little worried at first, it seems, as with all forums, that some questions get asked over and over again, but the ones of us that are new, never got the chance to read or respond to the old posts. I see where a few on here kind of "Bash" the ones that asked repeat questions. Being a member of several other forums with other topics besides RV's I see many many repeat posts. Most of the time, eveyone will join in a just answer the new person. I hope this is what I continue to see on here. It normally takes just as much time to answer a question as it does to explain to them how to go "search" for it.

Just my two cents worth. And so far, I am enjoying this forum!

Frank ya really hit the nail on the head. An answer is a lot easier than an explanation of how to do a search. [emoticon]

VTR
Just to let you know, The City of Flagstaff does not let you use their Wal Mart. The store is not the problem. The PD will wake you up and have you move on. I was just up there and the people at Wal Mart explained this.

Evidentally the Walmarts in North Dakota will allow you to park there and camp. There are 2 5'ers unhooked from trucks camping in our Walmart right now as we speak. I live 3 blocks away. Also, in another post I was dealt the same bull about doing the search thing. I asked a specific question about a specific camper and was told to do a search. So I am a lurker on this site now instead of a POSTer. [emoticon]

Lilbear,
Don't let the few grumps stop you from asking any question you need an answer to. Most people are happy to repeat info. It still can be helpful to do a search on any topic because there may be helpful answers from people in the past.

See, you got a nice answer so come on back!
