Galaxies are great assets and part of the game of being a good driver is knowing how to hide your giant bird. Example
When you're squad is trying to move as quickly as possible, keeping the Galaxy nearby is very important. Sometimes it may not be feasible to take the Galaxy back to the warp gate - distance could be too far or too great a chance to be discovered by enemy air are the two most common reasons.

Hiding your Galaxy nearby in some trees, or in this case a small pond, keeps you close to your squad to make immediate pickups and keeps you out of sight. It is also a good idea to exit your vehicle so that your are not giving off any sound or visuals from your engines just in case someone happens to wonder by. In the example above I found a little pond up on a a ridge that had no sight lines from the road and wasn't under any heavy air traffic patterns. You can see on the minimap that I'm fairly close to the squad waypoint too.
