Parking your MH, good grief...

Here is a picture of some fool who didn't pay attention when advised to get a shorter MH. He may have one shortly. 8/15 in West Yellowstone.Click image for larger version

firedoc,
My gut reaction would be sort of like yours, WHAT AN IDIOT But, in my old age, I try now to not jump to so many conclusions like I did when I was younger, a thousand decades ago. Maybe, it's possible that it quit right there for some odd reason. Maybe he was told by someone (possibly PD or ??? to stop there). Maybe he planned on pulling in further but someone pulled in front of him(can't quite see in the picture if there's room for pulling in further).

If there were non of these excuses and he/she just stopped in a normal car parking spot, with a COACH THAT LONG, then YES, an appropriate term for that/those people would be AIR HEADS!!!!!!!!!!

There are lots of AIR HEADS driving motor homes (and any other thing that moves on this planet). We've seen our share, many, many times. We both are so protective or our coach and toad and, conscious of our surroundings, ALL THE TIME, that we purposely park in obscure areas or, WAY OUT OF THE WAY, to hopefully insure we're not "nicked" by a passing truck/car/spaceship/submarine/747/ etc.
Scott

Actually I went over and checked it out. It was in a normal car parking space pulled up as far as it would go. There was great parking for large rigs right around the corner and you could see them from his spot. I think the term AirHead fits perfectly.

I run in to the opposite more often. Cars parked in RV parking.

Firefox, I wish you had noted and posted some ID information on this coach. Whether this driver is arrogantly oblivious, or just glaringly stupid, he/she deserves to be publicly humiliated. As embarrassing as it may be, we can hope that we're dealing with a forum member.

Anywhere? Really? Does that blanket permission extend to obstructing a traffic lane in a public roadway?

More ammo legitimizing the current adage regarding the repair-ability of "stupid".

What an a-hole, this goes beyond inconsiderate, it is so dangerous, not for him (he deserves it!) but what about folks parked on either side of him, or trying to pull out of the parking lot? Not to mention those driving on that road.....it's times like this that make me wish I were driving heavy machinery......

A stellar presentation not many of us would attempt for sure.

Couple comments:
- there does not seem to be a lot of traffic at that location.

- was in Custer National Park a few years ago. Came around a corner and the road was completely blocked. Looked like a parking lot in a hurricane. Some buffalo by the side of the road and the rubber neckers simply stopped where ever they were and were taking pictures.

We're in W Yell right now but that's not us. We're at Grizzly and have been tooling around town in the Jeep. We didn't see that rig maybe because we've been watching the smoke from the fires.
