    Its tough to park an SUV

    it was 104 degrees, baking sun, and Im not so young and have way too many pounds on my frame, not to mention one bum knee, damaged disks, and other aches and pains that are so unwelcomed in the aging process.
    And every night I come back to the hotel, which had limited outdoor parking spaces, my SUV didnt fit under the height warning bar of the parking garage.
    so there I was, pushing this 300 ton locomotive back down the tracks so I could get my car parked in the lot across the street.
    Guy that drives that train must have laughed every night and just pulled up enough to block the driveway.

    And to make things worse, I got my wife yelling at me from the car, "Dont come crying to me if you knock your back out pushing that thing, go park in the McDonalds lot!"

    *Im shy, its not that Im in witness protection, but hey, its just me.

    Exercise in futility? Looks like that locomotive is way over matched--it doesn't stand a chance.
