Camping World draws beach visitors!!

It never fails, every time we go near a Camping World, (particularly at the beach), it seems there is a big magnet that draws me into the store. Ended up with two of the newer round, padded camp chairs as well as a four foot roll-up aluminum table. The damage to the wallet was minimal though, which left more spending cash available for eating out and shopping!!

My wife sent me to a therapist to break me of the CW habit. I understand there are meetings you can go to. Helps with the addiction thing that CW implants in you.

Bingo, enjoy every moment of it!
Ya know we live at least 200 miles from the closest CW. The closest one to us is in Akron, OH.

I live 7 miles from CW, if I don't stop by once a week they get worried they may have to lay off workers.

Bingo,

Three things helped me with the Camping World habit. First, I retired, and welcomed a reduction in income and I nowhere near as wasteful with the funds as I used to be. Second, we also moved far away from them. Third, I changed the metal plate in my head to plastic, which is less prone to magnetics.

We live 3 miles from a CW, they greet us by name!!!! If we have not been in for a while, I believe they would start checking hospitals

I went to camping world once in my 65 yrs and find the stores to be overpriced so I stay away and do without.

I live 75 miles from the nearest one so they don't know me at all. Unfortunately that's not the case with the UPS driver. He has become one of my best friends.

Hard to break that "eating" habit, and just about as hard to break the going-to-CW habit!

The only cw in Minnesota is near our niece and nephews home.We take them several weekends a year and it has become a mandatory stop on the way back to our house.I always give them the option of going with me and the answer is always yes.I picked them up this past saturday and definately bought a half dozen things that I couldnt live without.Iam hoping that they move closer to us in the future.it would save me a lot of money over time.

I am so happy and relieved I do not live near a CW nor a BestBuy.

Well I couldn't get by CW yesterday either. Just had to go, hadn't been there in what? Maybe a week lol. But it was a must, had to get a sewer shut off valve for right at the end of sewer. Thats all I was going to get I told myself, and guess what, as you all know it can't stop there. Lets just cruise through the store and look. Well that $24 shutoff valve ended up costing a $100 lol. But I truly needed them other items

Its an addiction I tell yea!!!!!!

Best buy, Now thats another story.Their corporate headquarters are less than 3 miles from stick home and 3 stores within 4 miles.I need to check out the latest geek stuff at least once a week.Maybe I should reconsider the neice and nephews location camping world might be cheaper to live by and I wouldnt have to drive so far to pick them up ???

My truck tends to shimmy and shake if I'm passing a CW store. The hitch looks all twitchy in my rear view mirror and a moaning sound comes from the brake controller.
