This group tries to keep a list of Walmarts that allow overnight parking with permission. Probably the closest I have found to marking the friendly Walmarts.

My nephew is some kind of Wal-Mart manager in So.Florida and he sez that most of the time when you ask to see the manager they give you the " manager " that is the closest and the general manager will probably never hear of your request . But remember the most that can happen is you will be asked to move , no big deal , just move ! They can not tow you with out you refusing to move ! It is private property and law enforcement can not act unless land owner or agent requests action !

I'm like that. Being Chicago South Side Irish I was taught as a child to keep a good thing under my hat.

Well you've done a fine job of keeping a secret because I have heard nothing good about Chicago at all... ;-)

We don't sleep at Wal*Marts anymore as we no longer have to cover huge distances in a short time. We may have done it 5 times.
The lot sweeper comment made me laugh, they love doing that.
2AM skateboarder with metal wheels in Harrisburg PA did not make me laugh.
The Lumberton NC WM is just plain scary.
The common fact with WM is that there is no point in looking for the manager. They are like Bigfoot.

Who's brave enough to overnight their RV in a Chicago parking lot?

That's standard with most retail stores. You ask for a manager and you get a line supervisor, floor supervisor, or assistant manager. After 5 pm and on weekends you will likely only get a supervisor because the managers only work M-F day shifts. Not anything specific to Walmart.

Or, one can ask the kid doing the shopping carts. They never say "No". Smiley face for Toes.
