    I have seen some pretty bizarre parking since I started trucking. Figured a thread for it might be fun.

    This example is pretty tame. I can get out. What you cannot see from here is that Russels has an enormous gravel lot on the other side of the street that is half empty.

    I would love to contribute to this thread but I’m afraid I will run out of time and digital storage.

    The old Toledo Stoneyridge 76's before closure was something else when one allowed their gravel lot to build moon craters.

    If you ever want to get a 18 wheeler properly stuck and buried in one...

    I don’t know what the problem is, No Parking means trucks park here and as long as you park on the ground it’s ok,

    Another tardparker.

    Notice they are parked close enough to the pumps that the short hoses cannot reach rear-tank access fuel tanks.

    Also notice that 50 feet ahead, there is pull-through parking that they could have crawled to and parked in a non-retarded manner.

    Let's not forget a shout-out to the ######## who park bobtail in a full rig spot.
