Big Al gets towed... almost

So I was off to V-towne this last weekend for some preliminary partying at Marine World, aka Six Flags Discovery Kingdom. I lived in Vallejo almost my entire life and being local you tend to know a few tricks. One of the tricks was to avoid the $15 parking fee and park at an "alternative spot". The "alternative spot" was the golf course across the street.

(Discovery Kingdom is visable on the left and on the right you'll see a golf course and it's adjacent parking lot. Do not park there!!!)

So I pull the Tundra in to the parking lot, gather my belongings and start walking across the street to Marine World Africa, USA. Then along comes a yellow Wiler's Tow Truck and parks it right behind my truck. It takes me all of 5 seconds to hussle back to the truck and move it. Luckily the guy didn't hook my truck up to his rig, but it was only a matter of seconds. Disaster avoided!

(Don't be cheap like Big Al!)

I guess my local secret has been leaked and abused. For all of my loyal V-towne readers who haven't gone to Discovery Kingdom lately spend the $15 or at least play 9 holes at the golf course before you spend the day at the park.
