    Question Shopping in Gillette?

    I've been there, but not for years- what stores are in or near Gillette? Is there a Wally World? REI? Home Depot?

    Can I buy all the stuff I want at the rally but don't want to pack/ship?

    Google maps to the rescue.
    There's a walmart and kmart, and I'd guess other crap retailers, in Gillette. Those two are just south of the interstate off exit 126.

    look here

    Scott, this reminded me of the old George Carlin routine about "sh_t".

    Everybody needs a wide variety of crap on hand. :-)
    And while I'm not in love with the place, Wally Mart has saved my butt several times.

    What I fear more than the absence of shopping venues, is the absence of GRASS. And I mean the soft green kind that my tent loves.

    From what I saw, there is plenty of "good" grass in the majority of spots around the facility. We might want to remind Karol to make sure the sprinklers can be shut off for a few days!

    Some of the outer campgrounds like box elder have tough ol wyoming grass w/o sprinklers, but still plenty to get you throught the night.

    Wally world, alias WalMart:)

    Sure did some good business at two National Rallies I went to. Ohio and Wisconsin, both had WalMarts nearby and BMW's were parked everywhere out front. Mine too. The money I save there shopping is going in my GAS Tank, this year! When I need something quick and cannot find it anywhere else, WalMart usually has it. A good store, imo Randy"Polarbear"

    Karol, leaving one sprinkler on won't matter, cause I'm a firm believer that one should ride em hard and always put em away WET

    Talking Shopping in Gillette?

    There's coal. Lots of coal. If you are shopping for coal, you should be able to find some. All you could ever want. Buckets and buckets of coal. Be sure to take some home with you. Maybe not in Wal Mart, but nearby.
