    Does this count as stealth camping?

    No wound? No scar?
    Yet, as the Master shall the servant be,
    And piercd are the feet that follow Me.
    But thine are whole; can he have followed far
    Who hast no wound or scar?

    Excerpt from a poem by Amy Carmichael
    Missionary to orphans in India.
    She suffered much -- and bore much eternal fruit.

    There are Crock Pots and there are Microwaves. The world does microwaves; God does crock pots.

    Nobody really checks the garden department at night. I'd say go for it.
    Quality hammocks for an active lifestyle!

    Camping @ Wallyworld

    Walmart stopped letting people camp out in Canada but its worth a try. My secret to hanging off my jeep is to tie a large knot in some 1/4 rope and then close the rope in the door. Make sure the rope goes out the bottom of the door with the knot inside, the rope goes over the top of the jeep and its about the perfect height. Tie the other end of the hammock to all most anything. If you using a metal pole put a few wraps of duct tape to prevent vertical slippage.
    Carpe noctem!!

    Too funny about camping out in the Garden Dept!..

    Sam Walton, the 'founding father' of Wal Mart was an avid RV'r.

    Walmart policy, north american wide, is that it's okay to park overnight as long as you're not setting up obvious 'campgrounds'. Rolling out awnings and setting up barbecues/lawn furniture is usually NOT considered appropriate - yes, I know of a couple of RVr's who did exactly that in some Florida W/Ms..

    Certain town fathers, particularly in high tourist areas have taken a dim view of the Walmart policy and have passed specific by-laws banning the overnighters. Some RVr's viewed it as a scam to try to force them to pay for space at nearby campgrounds - some of them town owned...

    At one time a few years ago, an edict went out from head office trying to force all the RVr's away from overnighting - it lasted about a month. Some of the organized RV clubs had their members point out to head office the $$ and cents of it - head office quickly relented.

    You could also try hanging from a couple of trees in the grass islands at truck stops!!

    OK, now you got me thinking. Set up in the camping area inside the WalMart, like a camping display, and just before closing, slip into the Hammock. They'll never know you're there:-)
