Wally World…literal and campground version

Let me say this.  When you are traveling in a truck that is towing a 25 foot trailer, you have to choose your stores carefully.  One faulty choice and you are in a very sticky situation in a parking lot or street with no options for turning around.  It can get tense and ugly.  Some marriages do not survive such choices.  Luckily, because of choices and patience on the part of one party or the other, we have made it.

One of the salvations of traveling in such a rig across country is (sorry), Walmart.  You know you can turn around in the parking lot.  There is usually a traffic light that will allow you to turn left onto a busy street.  You know what they have or don’t have AND you know where to find it in the store.  These are very valuable assets.  At home I support my local hardware and grocery stores and try to stay away from Wally World as much as possible BUT when traveling with an RV…this is the place to go.

For the second time this trip, we hit Walmart this morning…

Walmart in North Little Rock Arkansas

Super Walmarts are particularly invaluable.  One stop shopping.  Generally, even a gas station that has Diesel!  (Diesel is sometimes tricky to find.)  As we were strolling up to this Walmart, I noticed a small billboard outside the door that announced “Sushi, made fresh daily”.  I commented that this was a scary thought…sushi at Walmart.  The Bearded One disagreed, thinking that there would be turnover of product at such a place.  Hmmm.  North Little Rock, ARKANSAS…Walmart…Sushi.  Hmmm.  Not.  But we checked it out.  There it was.  Looked good.  Oriental guy behind the counter looking proud.  We tried it.  It was really good!  8 hours later, no ill effects.  I am ashamed of putting such a negative label on North Little Rock.  Sorry, Arkansans!

So, we headed West.  Across the Arkansas River…

To Texarkana, Arkansas and the Wally World of RV parks…

Gravel, gravel everywhere...

Scenic Conoco station on the horizon

Oh, well.  Just for the night.  On the bright side it is clean and the management is friendly.  It has been in the 80’s during the day pretty much since we left home last Thursday.  Tonight it is going into the 40’s, so The Bearded One checked the propane tanks to make sure we would stay toasty.

But check out a closeup of the screen door of the trailer next door to us…


Of course, the last time we trailered with a cat, he escaped the screen door and we had a traumatic result.  But, gosh, he looks cute…

So, tomorrow, on to Texas!  Yee Haw!
