25. Note: New last year was a portable toilet consisting of a 5 gallon bucket, a toilet seat that fits on top of the bucket and 20 lb of cat litter.
Worked great and eliminates the need to get up in the cold of the night, go outside in the dark and find a dirty porta pottie, Ugh!
Got the special seat that fits the bucket on amazon.com for about $12 as I recall.

I'm glad I'm not the only one who packs early and has just about the same checklist as this one! Last year we got some cheap solar lights that you stick in the ground (I think they were about $1 if not less) and put them around our campsite. It was nice to have the extra light to light up the ground at night! Also I make sure to have some jumper cables with us. You never know if your battery or a neighbors might need a jump smiling smiley Ohhh and any girls who might read this - Baby wipes, face wipes and dry shampoo were SO helpful last year! Extra hair ties, bobby pins, headbands etc too. We usually pack all of our snacks and supplies in one of those 3 darwer plastic organizer things. One drawer for snacks, one for tools and supplies, and one for all of personal needs (sunscreen, lotion, hair stuff, face wipes, etc.) It really helped to keep everything organized!

10 more days!!!! smiling bouncing smiley

Hey, I forgot to put 11 inch Cable Ties on the list. Those can be really handy. You can get a whole bag at the 99 cent store or Harbor Freight.

Heres another tip, for shade, bring some cheap beach umbrellas. Also bring a 36 inch piece of 1/2 rebar(home depot) for each umbrella, pound the rebar in the ground and attach the umbrella to the rebar with shoe laces. Thats what we do at the venue. The rebar fits right into the hollow umbrella shaft. Dont forget a small hammer.

For the past couple of years I've been preparing meals at home and freezing them. They can replace alot of ice and usually thaw easily. I make like soup, stew, chili etc. it saves time and the effort of preparing food in campground conditions. Makes my life a little easier! smiling smiley

Re: Packing List 2013

so we can actually bring our beer/wine??
Re: Packing List 2013
June 14, 2013 04:22PM
Yes and you can bring it in to the festival grounds as long as it is not in a bottle or can. I fill my nail gem bottle in a small cooler and walk bak and forth every now and then to refill at the family camp. Save a ton of money that way.
Re: Packing List 2013

The list is very helpful. Thanks.
Re: Packing List 2013

Tip: For the coolers, I used to buy blocks of ice at Vons(expensive) but now I freeze several plastic bottles of water and use them instead. Almost as good as blocks and you can drink the water when they thaw. And you dont end up with ice water in your food your storing.
Re: Packing List 2013
June 15, 2013 10:36AM
Yes johnny great idea we use as well. Tip: pour a little water out before freezing bottles otherwise the sometimes swell and deform the bottle or crack.

So you can bring booze or beer into the festival grounds? THought it was only allowed at your camp. I dont drink but my fiance does and I was telling her no booze or beer in the bowl unless she bought it in there. Can someone clarify since i seem to be confused on what is okay and not. If she can bring it in but not in a bottle or can what is allowed? Hydro flask? plasitc cup? Sippy cup? LOL.

Thanks

Thank you. seems the more I read, the more confused I get! crazy! .........
Re: Packing List 2013

I typed too fast on my phone so let me clarify. I fill my Nalgene bottle with beer that I bring and keep at my camp site. I then out the plastic bottle filled with beer in a smaller cooler and carry that in. Security is mainly looking for glass and cans. They don't care what is in the bottle as long as its plastic. Also there is a general store across the street where you can buy beer, wine, etc. and ice.

Yesssss! 6 more weeks!!! I've already printed out our checklist for this year. Cleaning out our tent and camping supplies this weekend to make sure they're ready.

One addition to our list of food we decided on bringing this year will be homemade/premade breakfast burritos...I think that will be a nice and easy breakfast to warm up on a stovetop with no mess to clean up! Not sure why I never thought of them before! I do like the idea of freezing some chili or soup too!

Having a checklist for everything has really helped me in the past! I check off everything as I'm loading it into the car. It feels good to not have to worry & have that "did I forget anything at home" thought in the back of your mind the whole drive there!

I just got this awesome 10,000 BTU heater that attaches to a propane tank. 360 degrees of warmth at 3 in the morning. Let's do this!!!
Re: Packing List 2013

Just making sure this tabletop propane grill will be allowed? We've used just the propane one burner/cooktop in the past but are looking for something else to use this year. Just want to make sure before we purchase one!
