SHOWERS & TOILETS

McDonalds locations are often open 24hours, with free wifi, and typically the employees couldn't care less if you came in used the bathroom and wifi and then left without a purchase. 

 

OVERNIGHT PARKING

Many Walmart locations offer free overnight parking. Be careful though, they can be know to be located in more suspicious areas of town. If you get bad vibes head to a campground or a quiet back street.
