Last year my group and a majority of people in the car camping section farthest away from the festival entrance got screwed over with their spots. We basically ended up sharing a 14x30 with our neighbors. It doesn't seem like much but when everyone around you is having the same issue it ends up feeling really cramped. Just saying hopefully this year they have it marked out or something because the guys that were directing people to park were just eyeballing it and telling people to park when they though it was about 10 feet.

We had the same problem, but they shared some rum and coke and all was well!

I have a 10x10 EZ-UP and a 10x10 screen tent, so those should work pretty well to outline my space.

10x30 is NOT a lot of space. I remember taking up my whole spot with a rental compact car and a 9x10 tent.

weird because we had a pick up truck, two tents,a table with an umbrella, and 4 chairs in ours and we were totally comfortable

I can't wait to bitch about how our van and 14x10 tent won't fit!

Good luck getting them to wait while you measure.

If they try to pull you in too close, pull the turn extra tight and give yourself the proper room. That's what I did, and our group got just about the right amount of room. There should be about 4 feet between the cars, a bit more if your car is really compact, a bit less if you drive a big redneck pickup.

I don't see why they wouldn't just line the spots, makes the most sense and it would ease the awkwardness between people who didn't want to share an inch of space.

That's solid advice.

I really hope they've got their logistics on point this year. Last year was just bad if you weren't an early arriver

That's what I did too. It wasn't enough to get the full 10' but it was better than the people who only got 8' or so.

Also, just saw myself sig'd for the first time. Only now, we have 16 days to figure out how to drag our melted, destroyed bodies back to camp.

Can the same be said for tent camping? In regards to having less space than advertised?

I was kidding about actually getting out and measuring, Im not that big of a dick. I'm just hoping that they at least have some outlines and workers that cared a bit more. Either way it was an excuse to talk to our neighbors more, they were pretty cool.

we were spoiled last year when we pulled into our camping spot and the people next to us moved to another one because there was A LITTLE horse poop on their space. We covered it up with a tarp and had a 10X60 spot to ourselves in the first row of car camping :)


gonna suck this year though :(
