Have you ever noticed all the campers that stay in Wal*Mart (or other neighborhood getitallthere store)for a night on the way to wherever?
So why doesn't Wal*Mart offer a few hookups for a small fee so these people can plug in their stuff and be comfortable? I understand it's not their problem
really, but it could bring in a few extra bucks...you know like pay toilets or something? Maybe?

||I'm pretty sure that WalM doesn't need the "few extra bucks". That aside, there are liability issues here which, I'm sure, prohibit WM from even considering this idea.
||[marassa], be technical, why don't ya?
||wow this moves around the HB aswell..where next?
||small huts could be erected to "house" homeless people, who would work the campground at night, and make extra cash during the day bringing carts back to the store for re-use. It would create a new subculture of kooks, with names like "the Depot dudes" and such....
||There was a piece on Frontline or 20/20 or one of those shows that reported about the camping policy at Walmart stores. Apparently, campsite operators are up in arms about the loss of business. Also, because some Walmarts are on leased land, the land owner can (and has in a couple of cases) prohibited campers from overnighting on the property.
