    Talking Camping @ Wallyworld

    I get to spend alot of time on the road for work, and that road time I pass a bunch of Wallyworld stores. Most of my travels take me north and south bound on I-95.
    I have noticed lately, that the parking lots near the garden centers of the stores are filled with campers, the cahirs are set out and people are eating and such.

    I was told that Wallyworld lets them do this.

    So what i would like to do is go set up my hammock, in the garden department, between the plants.

    Reckon i can get away with it ?

    You could try between your rig and a light pole?

    It(I) might not be the prettiest thing, however It(I'm) is quite functional.

    My understanding is that Walmart encourages customers to utilize it's parking lots as camp sites as a way to stimulate sales of grocery and camping items alike. This is especially appreciated by their camper demographic during the fall and spring when people are migrating South and North respectively.

    I look forward to your Walmart hammocking pics.

    The Walmart by my house has "no overnight parking" signs all around. This is geared more towards trucks. I'd say just make sure no signs are around like that. But go for it and post pics!
