Or, you know, use the location marking system provided on light poles, trees, etc.


Or GPS drop from your phone. Works for me


Maps on IOS devices does a great job at remembering where you parked. It guesses you are driving and when you are no longer, and auto-drop a pin on the location telling you where is your vehicle.


If you get a parking slip, write your parking location on it. Eg: “Lot A, stop 14, two rows from the road.”
