Thank You Walmart

Tonight we are parked for the night at the Walmart in Cottage Grove, Oregon. After an afternoon of driving from Grants Pass where we had work done on the motorhome by Henderson's, we stopped in Cottage Grove for a couple of hours of birding and dinner with our friend Eddie Harrod. This is our third Walmart stop on this Trip.  First was in Tulare, California on a day we weren't able to make good mileage because of fog.  The second was in Surprise, Arizona on a day filled with too many other things to be able to drive to a campground.  Not all Walmarts allow overnight parking, but those that do I really appreciate.  It provides a good option for the traveler. Some times there are not RV Parks or campgrounds in close proximity to where you find yourself.  Other times it just makes economic sense.  With a completely self contained RV it sometimes seems unnecessary to pay $30 for the night when you have no real need for additional electricity, water, or sewer service. It also makes economic sense for Walmart.  RVers who spend the night normally spend some money.  I can't think of a single Walmart I've stayed at over the years that I haven't done some shopping.  So tonight, I just want to say----Thank You Walmart.
