    I left at around 1130 while Daft Punk was playing. So I was trying to squeeze through the crowd and some asshole pushed me and was all pissed then started to threaten me. I wanted to kill the guy for being such a prick. For Christ's sake I was LEAVING not squeezing through to get to the front.

    in 2003, we stood in a line outside the gate about 1/2 mile long for an hour only to get to the front and see that security is letting everyone mob the gate. missed a full set on the main stage. and we couldn't bring anything in so people were practically dehydrating standing outside of the goddamn gates. fucking god-awful organization that year

    Yeah, my best friend lost our car keys on 2005.... the bad thing is it was a rental car and we got it in Tijuana, Mexico... quite a problem.

    How do you get lost? And is that really a problem? (assuming you aren't 14 years old).
    Hunting has been part of our society since the first Europeans came over and shot buffalo and Native Americans and whatnot.

    Someone hit the front of my car. The accident pinched my radiator and it had to be replaced. I made it home before it started smoking.
    Whiskey Sour

    2 oz blended whiskey
    Juice of 1/2 lemon
    1/2 tsp powdered sugar
    1 cherry
    1/2 slice lemon

    Shake blended whiskey, juice of lemon, and powdered sugar with ice and strain into a whiskey sour glass. Decorate with the half-slice of lemon, top with the cherry, and serve.

    Standing in a HUGE LINE waiting to get in in 2005, and having people get all pissed off and overheated--finally a fire truck came and sprayed us all with water. The security was being extremely thorough, to say the least. This did not happen in 2006 though--things went very smoothly then!

    Getting out of the venue on Saturday night in 2004--we must have sat in the parking lot for at least an hour, and people started running over barriers to get out of the parking lot. Let's not even go into how badly I had to pee.

    Do security just start herding people out at the end of the last set? Or can we just meander around for a little bit to wait for the rush to die a bit?

    I'm not exactly a tall person so getting smooshed in the middle of that huge crowd trying to get out after Daft Punk was probably the worst for me.

    At the end of one of the nights in 2004, we could not find our car. For like an hour. It was so dusty and dark in the lot...I was near tears.
    This year I'm renting a car and I'm afraid the same thing will happen, but worse since it's not even my own vehicle.
    If anyone has any suggestions...Or am I the only one...?

    Remember where it is....also, start hitting your car alarm button repeatedly when you're in the vacinity of it.

    make sure your rental car has a keyless remote, and like the person said above, just keep hitting the alarm button. it worked great for me in 2005.

    Take a GOOD look around when you park each day. Pay attention as you're walking towards the venue, and envision taking that same route in reverse. These sound like slightly dorky "duh" suggestions, but they helped my group on the second day last year. The first day we were just like, "oh cool we're right here off the main drag blah blah blah." Turns out at the end of the day there were about five lots right off the main drag. Five lots all filled with fifty bajillion cars.

    Take a pic of all the landmarks surrounding your car (trees, markers, other cars, flags and what not)... worked like a charm last time!

    Thanks everyone. I felt like such a dork asking that but god, we just said "oh yeah we're over there" and went off to the grounds...never imagining the confusion later.
