I used to work with DD adults, and part of the job was giving them rides to places. There was one autistic girl I worked with who HATED that I didn't always find the closest parking spot. I never parked super far away, but she wanted me to drive around until I found a super close spot. The funny thing was that we were usually going to the mall to walk around for exercise.

While I would probably never want to park miles away, I don't mind a short jaunt. Kind of like when I was in labor and my husband parked in the wrong parking lot at the hospital. Now that was fun. Lol. Though it was only a few blocks that time around emoticon

I always find parking the furthest from my final destination. Every little bit helps.

This last weekend I discovered a great new way to get in a serious workout...

Park in the wrong parking lot in Washington Park.

My mother and I picked a lot to park in, thinking we were close to the entrance to the Japanese gardens. WRONG. We probably walked a good 6-7 miles that day, often through steep and muddy trails.

Not sure if this teaches me to find the correct parking lot in the future, or if I should keep parking in the wrong parking lots to get good hikes in. emoticon
