    I think it’s the same drivers that hang out at that pilot you speak of
    That’s one of the worst ones I’ve seen
    Inside and out.

    I believe the Aurora CO Wal-Mart off of 70/Airport still has designated truck parking. Then there's the one in Lamar where it's not designated truck parking, but they park there all the time. And of course the ones here in Clovis and Portales are cool with semis.


    Weird thing is it doesn't seem to be a rural vs. urban issue. Some urban Wal-Mart's like Aurora CO set aside official truck parking. While there's probably some in the small town sticks that will shake you down on the spot.

    I park at Walmart fairly often just to run in and grab some groceries, but I never sleep there.

    Heck, there are some Walmarts that have truck parking spaces.

    But trucks are still parking there. And it's been in this condition for years now.

    That's because it is up to the store manager. Unless there is a local ordinance against truck parking.

    What'll be funny one day is security will chase away a driver that actually has a delivery to make and it won't get delivered guess who'll have the last laugh then? When I parked at Walmart I'd always make sure I did two things, first park well away from the front preferably right down at the furthest parking point, and always went inside to buy something that way at least I had a receipt to prove I was a customer.

    Yes, I always at least shop when I park at a Walmart. I mean there’s usually always something we need if not some grocery shopping etc.
    Walmart has cameras everywhere, I don’t understand why they don’t just review the cameras and see what truck drivers and companies are leaving trash. Imagine if a Walmart security employee contacted these companies with the truck and trailer number date and time of who was dumping trash on their lot and imposed like a $500 fine. I guarantee you truckers dumping trash on Walmart property would stop real quick.

    I never understood the need to just dump your trash wherever. It’s trash, tie it up in the bag and throw it in a trashcan when you stop somewhere that has one. It’s not that hard. When a driver throws his trash anywhere else, he’s just doing it to be an ###.
