Yeah, that's our dilemma Jim. Our HOA restrictions mean we can't keep it there for more than 3 days, similar to what you mentioned. But in our case, it doesn't take a complaint to be in violation. The association management has employees that check the neighborhoods. Our house has alley access as well as street access, and all the garages and driveways are behind the houses. We thought about just keeping it in the driveway and adding a gate to our backyard/alley fence to conceal it, but it's a standard 2 car garage driveway with not a lot of extra width. Would make the wife's backing out of the garage an adventure.

Thanks Brian, I also noticed the blurred out aluminum wheels. Nice thing about owning a Boler and an Escape 19 is they both will fit in a single 40' storage stall.

Heck, I just went and looked, and there is a new one from last year I was not aware of, but still with the trailer in the yard. Pretty cool, here is the link. Just select the year from the menu top-left.

Okay, I give up. How do you find the old street views on GoogleMaps?

Jim,
I would be concerned about showing an exact address. Or is security only a concern in the lower 48?

Jim too bad your garage door was not open and you were able to see your Trillium

Love all the "views ".......Calgary not only has that time limit on front street and driveway parking - if one actually has side yard space to accommodate a trailer it must be several feet ( 3or4 ) back of the front corner of the house ...even if there is a front drive garage that protrudes forward of the house ...it is still the house corner it must be back from-regardless of side . However bylaw is not proactive in Calgary .... like GBaglo said ......

I think his showed because he captured what was on his screen and re-posted that. The actual picture doesn't show the address.

Time to move a couple minutes to the SE then Ian, to avoid those pesky neighbours.

The Trillium would not have been in the garage when this was taken. Everything is in full leaf, and I did not bring it back until during the big snow storm in September.

I am not worried in the least. If someone wanted to find my house, it would be as easy as looking in the phonebook.
