A rant

I am so tired of pulling into a Flying J, Cracker Barrel, rest area, or other RV friendly establishment only to find the RV parking has cars parked in them. And its usually one car in each slot parked right in the middle so there's no way an RV can fit.

I complained to the management in a Cracker Barrel once and they said they couldn't do anything about it. But if I parked my MH in a way that was taking up 6 car slots they would say something.

i have the same complaint. they are probably the same people that will pass you, pull in front of you and step on the brakes.

the world wouldn't be complete without a few idiots. ignore them and they will happily, if not cluelessly, go on their way. as far as the Cracker Barrels go; I have never been in one where the RV spots were long enough anyway. They are barely 2 car lengths long.

Yep. They're in a hurry to get to the grocery store to buy 400 items in the "10 items or less" lane.

At CC I find that it is usually more convenient to park over on the side or around back. I usually have to cover about 6 - 8 regular car spaces. Be careful and don't park so they can block you in. They'll do that too.

The one that especially cheers me up are the Dips that pull into a Love's or Flying J, get their fuel and leave their vehicle at the pump while their inside to pay for it and decide to get some food and drink and do a little shopping. They generally look like Walmartians when you finally see them.

A devilish thing to do is if you are traveling with someone, one parallel in front and one parallel in back and make them come ask to get out.....

If I can't park in the rv space at Cracker Barrel, I just find about eight empty car spaces and park there. Be sure your front is blocking half of the next space or some idiot will block you.

I got a form off of a website that has several reasons why you're an idiot because of the way you parked. I modified the form and added one about parking in RV spots. I keep them in the pocket behind the seat and place them on the idiots windshield. It makes me feel better.
