6 weeks without walmart

 Lets just say that after spending 6 weeks bouncing around in tourist towns paying prices that would surely leave any budget minded person in tears I will surely embrace the first walmart that crosses my path its the one stop shop that caters to the frugal minded. WooooHooo there it was, the big blue beckoning wally world sign. In an hours time and $157 later I had everything I needed to last me 3-4 weeks. Now off to find a spot to call home for a few days....... I had heard other travelers reference a spot in the area. So with a quick search on google maps within seconds I had found its location.  Upon arrival I was surprised to get a spot right on the lake complete with picnic tables, fire pits, and toilets. Best of all was the cost to stay here for the night was $0 made me wonder if those folks I had passed about 2 miles back paying $18 a night and camping next to a highway knew of such a spot? Oh well :) Heres a few pics!
