    I agree and I don't know how they would take it if I opened up the RTT in the parking lot! LOL

    Yea, I know what you mean by Walmart, Lowes, Bass Pro Shop, et al, ....been there done that! BUT if you need to cover ground and get some shut eye, I've been VERY grateful to have ANY place to stay. Yea, it's not on the top of Engineer's Pass in CO with an awesome view, but it is sleep so you are in good fiddle for the next day, SO you can make it to Engineer's Pass (or wherever :-)

    And I don't think anyone cares if you deploy your RTT.

    I think there might be a big difference between Basspro and Walmart when it comes to the RTT. I would much rather have those that shop a Basspro checking out my RTT then “The people of Walmart”
    Either way, we’re getting up very early and getting the heck out of Dodge.

    I was looking for a app like this and couldn't find one. Thanks for the heads up and I'll check it out and hopefully find some use for it.

    Thanks for all the recommendations. This will help a lot as I get started in exploring out there.

    Hey Hank! That's what I thought when I passed by a truck with a RTT setup in Kalispell, MT Walmart one morning.

    For those who don't want Walmart searches in their search results, on a mobile device, you can select filter on the top right side and slide "informal campsites" to off and that should keep any places that are an unadvertised camp spot often associated with another business (Walmart, Cracker Barrel, Cabelas etc..) or institution (Gas station, restaurant, etc) from showing up on your search results. If you're looking for Free campsites, check off "Established Campsites" (I believe 99.9% of Established sites require a fee). Happy Camping!

    I just finished a trip up California to the Lost Coast and I used iOverlander a lot looking for dispersed sites. I was out of range a lot and I like that the info is available offline, though the map doesn’t load. So I used it in conjunction with my Gaia maps. It lead me to this spot just north of Fort Bragg off Hwy 1 :)

    Wow, can't complain about that view. Nice find. Just curious, how do you use Ioverlander in conjunction with Gaia?

    Thanks!

    I use them separately but together. :)
    So if I’m out of service range iOverlander won’t display a map, however it will still give me a blue dot for my location and campsites nearby. The info is already preloaded for description and coordinates independent of service. Then I use Gaia to map out the coordinates to locate the site. If you have service iOverlander can handle all that for you.

    No can’t complain, I used it to find these spots as well.

    The ocean is just over the berm
