I know it's only August. I still have 3 months before most campgrounds close.
Why does it matter to me when the campgrounds close if l am parking at the Wal-Mart parking lot? Well, you see, l have become really fond of my bathroom toilet in my van. Sure l can always use the restrooms at fast food joints, wal-marts etc..etc..
There is something to be said for being able to roll out of bed and visit the loo in the middle of the night or first thing in the morning, and not have to change out of my pj's.
So today l did some research for dump sites that extend past the deadline of mid-October. I'm happy to report that l found a couple. So if l stay in my van during the winter months (l will take it a day at a time), l will be able to use my facilities. Of course, l will have to be careful about freezing, mostly in the months of January and February. In those months l will probably use the toilet very selectively.
It's good to know that l have a option though. This is where l found the dump site info.
