For your viewing pleasure, the Fort Worth Cabela's parking lot. Actually, it's mainly the parking lot service road. Cabelas has the only parking lot around locally that has a six lane service road, complete with median and left turn lanes. They even have Bott's Dots for Doohickie's amusement. If you were so inclined, you could even ride on wide sidewalks as long as the landscape maintenance guys weren't busy. There's actually one at work in the circled area of the top photo.
The only motorist interactions I've ever had in this lot are an occasional 18 wheeler rumbling out to the I-35W service road. It's kind of like one of those sci fi movies where everyone disappeared except for the hero of the movie.
This parking lot is so special, that I happily make a run down the Alliance Gateway Freeway to get to it on the way to work. It would not work in the afternoons, since the roads aren't aligned to use it going south, and Cabela's is actually open.
