    You had a cardboard box! How did you get so lucky?

    It wasn't real cardboard - we put discarded butcher paper over power lines to simulate cardboard.

    We had to be very careful about rolling over in our sleep.

    We have two of these parking assist thing in the garage for both our cars. They work pretty well.

    It uses sonar to detect how close you are and tells you when to stop.
