  A one of those awful people who kept her truck parked where she was camped
(ie merchant area), I would like to point out one thing that I noticed at
Coronation last weekend.

  I drove my truck up to the parking area Saturday morning after a nite of
cold and wet because I have very bad night vision and likely would have spent
the whole night driving around the campground.  Guess what?  The parking lot
was full.  

  Well, only about half full, actually.  This is because the majority of
vehicles parked there--cars, vans, trucks, whatever--had parked almost but not
quite a full car space apart from each other, leaving plenty of room if I had
a bike, but not for an ordinary vehicle.  In one place I noticed a person who
had parked sideways, likely to keep the truck out of the road so it didnt get
hit.  Double park?  No, I have had that happen to me before.  I still have no
idea if there were other parking lots at the site, noone I asked was able to
tell me.

  Any suggestions?
