Walmart Squatters

The nerve of some people…check out this photo…

Oh wait…that is us doing what we have complained about others doing for years, being sprawled out in a Walmart parking lot and we will be here until November 1st...What have we got ourselves into now?

Our vacation is over, at least for the next 30+ days it is.  We arrived at our Pumpkin Station location in El Cajon, California and even though we don’t open until September 28th we are here.  We are not helping with the setup which is strange to us, but fantastic at the same time, but what we are doing is interviewing employees that will begin working when we open.  We are actually going to be managing this Pumpkin Station and not manual laborers, wow life is good!

It has been warm so far, highs in the 90’s but the lows are into the upper 60’s at night thank goodness since we are on blacktop and we will not have any power for a few days due to some restriction changes the City made on them.  We are exercising our generator and also taking advantage of the Mall’s air conditioning. 

Yesterday we did some shopping at Walmart that is located in the Westfield Parkway Mall.  This Walmart has a second floor that have elevators or escalators, the escalators have a middle space that your cart goes into and travels up or down along with you!

We then ate lunch at Bob’s Big Boy, also located in the Mall which we have a separate entry on our blog for that review, be sure to check it out.

Hopefully, with the shortened hours here at this lot and managing instead of all that physical work we just might be able to do what we love, write about our adventures.

I asked at Walmart a while back about the slides and chairs. Walmart doesn't have a problem with it. It's others trying to make the problem. Now I think if you set up your barbecue, popup tent, etc., they might have something to say but other than that, you are mostly good to go.

There is a Target in Portland that has the escalators and elevators too. It's a huge store.

Congrats on the management aspect of the Pumpkin Station! At least you're close to provisions when you need 'em!

That mall used to be called Parkway Plaza years ago, spent a lot of time there over the years and it sure has changed. Born and raised in La Mesa, sure miss the nice weather. Enjoy!

If Walmart is happy, things are good as long a no one runs stops by for a five finger discount:)

LOL! You're going to be igniting the forums over at RV.net where all the busy-bodies, anti Walmart parking crowd hangs out.

Don't be surprised if your picture shows up on their forum, too.

I think it's great that Walmart welcomes RVs, they know how much money we drop there. :c)
