This is at a small Pilot in West Columbia SC. Pilot #338

This is an overall view.capture_2017-08-09-20-12-29.png

The X is where I parked. The Y was an empty spot. The truck labled B was one spot to the right.1502324423819.jpg

Good job Dude.

Yeah, that is tight! Great job!

Drives me nuts that Flying J and Pilot always build their parking lots like there's an asphalt shortage. What a difference 5 or 10 more stupid feet would make, ya know? Geez that's ridiculous. Even if you leave part of it gravel, we're fine with that! Just give us a little room to work with.

Jerks.

Thanks everyone. Took my time. Yes, some of these truckstops leave no room for error.

I was always frustrated with the 45 degree blind sides that TA loves having. I just want to find the engineer and treat him like a glow stick. Snap him and then shake him until the light comes on.

Nice job Big Scott; and on top of their poorly designed parking lots they put those big round blue things in the middle of the driveway!
