I've always been a stay-in-a-hotel-type traveler. Only once in my life have I been in an RV..... quite a few years ago friends invited me to travel with them and stay in theirs on a weekend trip, and it really was cool! We spent one night -- on the journey up to our destination -- in the parking lot of a Walmart and it was so cool to look outside and see the store there when we all arose in the morning.....and, yes, of course we had to go into the store and do a little shopping, too, as long as we were right there! I was really amazed at how efficient and compact an RV can be, with almost all the comforts of home....

Terri, your new RV really looks so nice, and much more elegant than the one in which I spent a weekend lo those many moons ago. I would guess that you will have many happy travels in this home-away-from-home!
They make the RV's so nice now. We will love it. We have never stayed at WalMart, but we might if we ever travel cross country.
 
I must say it was kind of interesting spending the night in a parking lot! Actually, I don't know whether or not nowadays there are regulations against that -- parking an RV in a commercial business/store's parking lot for an overnight stay -- but back then apparently it was OK..... When we got to our destination we were able to park the RV in the driveway of the home of the other friends we were going to be visiting, and that worked out well. Additional friends also arrived in an RV and they were able to park on the street in front of our friends' house and apparently there were no objections from the neighbors. It was a kind of rural area anyway......

Still a common practice. Certain businesses are very receptive to overnight camping in a remote corner of their parking lot. Wal-Mart, Cabela's, Cracker Barrel, to name a few. And pretty much any Native American casino.

I've been (re)learning the game of Go, which is very popular in Japan. Many books on the game use Japanese terminology, and one book I just finished had a chapter introducing Josekis. There are volumes of books on these "common" moves.

Unlike Chess, where there are a limited number of moves in the opening game, with a 19x19 Go board, the number of stone placements possible are astronomical, so over the years people have formed these Josekis as a framework for some of the early game stages (and even in middle game). There still is quite a variation that can arise, but learning some of these along with intuition can help in game play.
