Walmart, Morris, Illinois (Have you been there?)

Hello Fellow Airstreamers ....

I'm heading east in a month or so for a quick trip and was thinking of boondocking at the Walmart in Morris, Illinois. Has anyone been there? Or is there another location on I-80 which is +/- 50 miles or so that you would recommend?

Thanks in advance....

Fellow Walmart boondockers ...

I just wanted to let you know that I completed my trip and stayed at the Morris, Illinois Walmart and all went well. It was a Saturday night and there were only 4 trucks and me. On the way back home I stayed down the road at the Walmart in Ottawa, Illinois and there must have been 20 trucks and me spending the night. But all went well and I would do this again without hesitation.

Both nights the temperature dropped in the low 30s and the house batteries kept the furnace fan running just great. In fact, the indicator panel showed the battery level still "green" in the morning. Which surprised me as that furnace fan ran a lot.

Just a reminder to be sure to speak to the Walmart Manager to get permission. I heard that there are some that will not allow over nighting because other RVers were dumping in the parking lot, and not into a storm drain either. They ruined it for others.
