Pull through parking

Have you started looking for parking places at the grocery store, mall, etc. that you can pull through so you won't have to back out when you're ready to leave?

I don't know why it's taken me so long to realize this would make my life just a teeny bit easier but, boy howdy, I'm really getting into it.

Now all I need to do is find a house with a circular drive (it'll have to be in a warm climate so I can leave my car out all night) and never have to back out of a driveway again.

Our driveway is a bit long and I tried really, really hard to use my mirrors for the backing up process but I almost took the house down.  Peter is a pro at it and I'm amazed every time I watch him back up allllllll the waaaaaay down to the street.  Amazing.

I don't really know if it's the neck that doesn't like to twist anymore or it's my back or maybe both.  

I just know that pull-through-parking is my life!!!  Now.


  1. I can so relate, Ellen. I am a perfect parallel parker. I can do it right in one try every single time, but backing out of a driveway always gets me!! Hank zips backwards at breakneck speed. I can hit the bushes on either side more than once....EVERY TIME!!

    1. I envy the ability to back up without craning ones neck.
