Jeremy, I've been to that Rotterdam Pilot. Parking sucked so bad and I was almost out of hours so I used points to pay for premium parking. Lots of room there. 😂

I was in paid parking. Lol

I opened my curtains to see this. This is after he pulled forward. It was touching. I swung left so he could get in. Luckily no one was beside me

Thanks Grumpy!

Looks like the successful attempt started WAY further away from the several unsuccessful ones and that there was no way the trailer was ever going to make the turn in time starting that close.

A bit puzzled by the person who appeared be both spotting and guiding him. That seems like a pretty key piece of information to have and share!

Looks like one of them places you have to drive through the parking lot to get to the fuel island. Worst places ever created. Then there’s always that one week wonder trying to blindside who is going to hold up everyone. After a few crappy attempts at blindsiding and 20 minutes later he gives up and goes to sleep in the fuel island. ARRRRRR

Really? I've not experienced anyone taking their 10 hr. DOT in a fuel lane. Does this really happen?

DOT:

Department Of Transportation

A department of the federal executive branch responsible for the national highways and for railroad and airline safety. It also manages Amtrak, the national railroad system, and the Coast Guard.

State and Federal DOT Officers are responsible for commercial vehicle enforcement. "The truck police" you could call them.

I’ve seen trucks parked st the pumps that appeared to be taking their 10, though I don’t know for sure. But it sure looked like it
