What are some of the best places to hide or stash the car while you go out flying or busking?

The reason I ask is that my license plates are expired and I just had an accident that I don't want the insurance company or the cops to know about...yet.

Wal-Mart parking lot. Near one of the mini malls. Can park there forever without worrying about shit.

residential off streets! i'm always paranoid about leaving my car parked in customer parking lots for too long, cause if any of the workers notice you walking off like that from your car there's always the chance they could call and have it towed. here in san jose i saw an rv get towed from a walmart parking lot, asked the cop what the reason was they said expired tags. pretty fucked shit! i'm always cautious about that kinda shit. i wont just leave my shit parked anywhere. i say make sure iit's a fully legit parking spot where you know it cant get towed, and if tags are expired residential offstreets are your best bet, so long as other cars are parked onn the street as well.

Industrial areas during the day are always a good bet, if there's one within a few miles of where you want to be. Lots of parked cars, low police presence.

Macon for a super hot minute. Who what when where?
Finished an initial draft of a floorplan for my new van:
A lot has happened since returning to California. Just two days after returning from the road, I grew the courage to leave my abusive SO and stop hiding her abuse. I returned to my hometown in the Bay Area; I’m now going to stay housed up here until next summer as I recover from trauma and save up for my next adventure. I’ve just gotten a job offer, and will be renting a room of my own here!
I learned a lot about myself and the world on the road, but I know vagabonding is the life for me!
I never did complete an update here, did I?
Well, I rubbertramped all across the country, back from Boston with a fellow moderator from R&V. We drove from there to Las Vegas over the course of a month! I saw 4 national parks, 30 states, and crossed over 6000+ miles. I came back to Los Angeles on June 15th, having achieved my goal of hitchhiking the entire country, and was on the road for over two months.
3 weeks of CDL training starting Monday. Im so excited. Living in semi is an upgrade from living in the van, especially since your getting paid for it! Hells yea!!!
A list of all the magic stores in the U.S. would be a sick feature on stp. Imagine you get off the train desperately in need of smokes and a slam, but you got ran off every corner... Dont worry stp knows exactly where you can get pall malls and some steelies with those foodies you picked up in the last town.
