We were parked in the end of a line cross ways to the car lots next to the entrance lane into walmart-but we were in the parking lot area if you can figure out what I'm trying to explain here. This is what a 'trucker' did to us.

We couldn't' even open our door. He pulled up in the driving lane/entrance road into walmart and parked right there! Firstly he was illegally parked on the road, and secondly he had to see us we aren't small...plus there was tons of room in the parking lot if he wanted to park somewhere. I thought ok maybe hes having mechanical issues, or is possibly on the phone. We peeked out our bedroom window and he was sitting in the drivers seat reading a book.We didn't dare try to move the rig because we do not have a back window and we couldn't see if our toad was really close to him or not. And we couldn't open the door to check it out. I tried extremely hard not to hyperventilate and of course the furkids needed to go out.
We waited and we waited wondering what we should do-we were fearful to call walmart security or the police..but there was no way I was going to bed knowing we couldn't get out of the rig. I was truly starting to panic.
Finally after over an hour he left. Needless to say, I sure didn't sleep well last night. Now I've always had great respect for truck drivers, and have always found them to be courteous travellers..but this one sure put a bad taste in my mouth.
We were up and on the road by 7:30 and arrived safe and sound in Danbury Ct at a nice Travel Center. We are parked up with approx 8 other rigs. There is a free dump station here as well as a tap to refill your fresh tank. Today was a hairy drive, but the weather was good.
Now I'm off to have a shower and hit the bed...be safe out there yall....tomorrow we hope to be in Bangor...
Home is where you park it!
