On sleeping locations

I’m learning the old trick of arriving late and leaving early. Sure it cuts down on your sleep even more but at least you get a few hours.

Last night I pulled in behind a chain grocery store, some noise (there was a guy with a leaf blower cleaning the parking lot ~10:30pm) but no one bothered me.

Around 5 this morning the delivery trucks started arriving.
Mostly big diesels.
The sound of the trucks don’t bother me really but the busier location, the number of people coming in and out means that I’m more likely to be noticed by the grocery store staff and someone may decide to “do something”.

So I need to find a location I can hang out in for the next few hours until I can safely park at the school for the meeting I have scheduled for today.

I found a nice secluded spot that didn’t look like it’d have much morning traffic. When I parked I did notice that on the other side of the concrete barrier and high wooden fence there was a daycare. No biggie says I to myself, it’s trying to drizzle, most kids will be in school, and kids these days don’t play outside anyway, it’ll be fairly quiet. But I was so very wrong! Around 8am all shriekdom broke loose! They were definitely using their outside voices. And from the sound of it that daycare had the modern day equivalent of big wheels.
I moved. : D

    Wal-Marts have huge parking lots. I always see travel trailers parked out in the “siberia” end of the lot.

  3. Hey Jerry,
    Apparently the Wal-marts in this area of the country have adopted a “no overnights” policy.
    No RV’s parked here, and the night I tried it I got told to move. : /
