I look for a shady spot in this heat. If I have to walk a bit, oh well

I like to park my Range Rover in the fire lane at the 23rd street Dillon's. It's closer than the handicap spots. Sure makes it easy to run inside for cigs & lotto.

I take the first parking spot I see downtown, hopefully on the cheaper streets. But Rock Star Parking still Rocks.

"Or...are you a big fat lazy fat ass Type A personality?"

Excuse ME!! Type A personality? Well nobody ever called me that before . . . When I'm downtown I sometimes drive around the block 3 or 4 times trying to get a spot in front of the establishment I intend to patronize. Then I give up and go to McDonald's. And Walmart. And Home Depot. In my Expedition. (that oughta cover it . . )

Does not make much sense. The 400 lb Walmart breeders riding on those carts seem to be the very ones that should be walking?

When I had carpal tunnel surgery (both hands same day) I had to get out two days later and dig a hole in the yard for the honey wagon to siphon out the septic tank! This getting old ain't for sissies! (Still look for the closest parking spot though)

Regardless of where you park, why not grab an empty cart/basket from the parking lot and push it back inside for your use. Just look at the parking lot of a Wal-Mart and you can see that a bunch of lazy slobs have been there. They don't want to use the coral to park empty cart/baskets when they are done. You can watch the parking lot of almost any store and you can see the type of people that shop there. A little exercise never hurt anyone.

Always park away from other cars to prevent door dings, even if it involves walking a mile or two.

I just park on the top level of the 9th and New Hampshire garage. It's always free, it's within a reasonable walking distance to anywhere downtown and there are always spots available.

Great strategy, easy to cruise over there; if you don't find something on the way, just head up to parking you've already paid for. +1

I hate the ones that park close to the entrance and park diagonally and take up two spaces so nobody will ding their car. But they'll be d****d if they're going to park away from the door to avoid dings.

Sometimes we park on New Jersey if we are not walking or bicycling. If going out to eat why not park a bit away from the destination.

If going out to drink more than a two or three why drive at all? Or at least carry a bicycle on the car, buy an annual T pass or stop by Browns and pick up a pair of dynamite walking shoes.

Adrienne Sanders 6 years, 11 months ago

I'll walk a couple of blocks downtown, if you go down there often at all you know where there's likely to be a space so you don't end up walking clear from the parking garage to 6th street.

I think some people have a different definition of "reasonable."

...or I ride my bicycle and park pretty much wherever I want.
