Now where did I park?

As a frequent air traveller, park n fly is often the cheapest parking option for longer adventures. I always take a photo on my more than a week ... take a photo!phone of the pole or aisle marker so I have a quick and easy reference when I'm trying to find my vehicle - certainly better than walking the lot and playing with your car alarm to help you find where you parked. Take a moment for a bit of parking-lot planning as you prepare to leave on your adventure to save some headaches when you return to a massive parking lot/garage.

This works wonderfully at any major theme park or shopping center where the massive lots make for a not-so-fun game of “where did I park”?

The next question may be ... Where did I put my keys?

make sure to capture the floor level you parked on!Updated note: Make sure when you take your photo before your week of holidays you capture the floor level as well! From recent experience, I dutifully took my photo, left for a business trip to Boston/Salem and upon my wife and my return, we looked at the photo to see where we had parked and had to simply laugh - we had failed to capture the floor level of the b19 parking location. We began guessing at level 4 - nope, level 5 - nope! A secondary tip - the floors are also sorted by color. As we identified we were yellow b19, that allowed us to quickly find our vehicle on level 7. Even seasoned travelers still can learn something new!
