    Brett did his homework, last year I made a list of what I forgot/improve on.... close to your list... that wash cloth is so true, when you grab your $2 a bottle water I would dip mine in and put it on the neck.

    I'm also bringing a little bag this year to collect my 10for1 free water. I must have gotten 10 free bottles last year. I stashed all the empties in my locker which happened to be conveniently located next to the recycle stand.

    i got a case of water last year. i asked one of the workers for a trash bag and they gave it to me. i then wandered the main stage area for about a half an hour and BAM! a hundred empty bottles. they didnt even bother counting them.

    thats why there is a cord. that way you can leave your ipod in your fucking icebox if you want to, and still get solar power. And if you read the page it is also for phones. pretty nifty.

    I bought both of those sunscreens today. Well, actually, I bought Target brand on the spray Coppertone...couple bucks cheaper.

    awesome job, you pretty much covered everything. the wet wipes were the best. I also took tissue and seat covers b/c the potties get pretty bad. And I'm definitely taking my handkerchief again...I would take it to some of the vendors and asked them to soak it in the ice buckets then put it around my neck

    Then leave it in the fucking icebox. I personally don't put my electronics in the desert sun or in ice boxes.

    Awesome dude. Thanks for posting that. I've already spent $70 on random camp shit! But, I wanna be comfy.

    You can pick up the lights at harbor freight, Big Lots, Target, Sportsmart or any camping store in the US and quite a few are solar powered.

    I'm not camping, but I did get some good ideas for stuff I'll need anyway. I'm off to Target - Thanks for compiling the information!

    As a desert dweller and burner, I can VERY HIGHLY recommend some further survival tips by checking out alternative energy zone's page. There is everything on there from dealing with the heat, to LED/fun night lights, and storage of necesseties. It's almost like a second handbook to the Burning Man survival guide that is a required read when you buy your tickets. http://www.ae-zone.org

    Anyways, one per person. invaluable for late night bathroom trips (no lights inside the port a potties), finding your shit, reading, writing, planning in your tent, and packing up in the dark sunday/monday (which is the way to go- trust me. if you tear down and pack up in the morning /midday sun, you'll regret it for days, my friend).
    yeah. like two bucks apiece. we also used a pair of them to light our hitchhiking sign "LA-ISH".
    we got picked up before we even made it off empire polo property

    IF your camping bring some chairs to sit in and some small lights to keep your area well lit and it makes it easier to find at night, like the kind you just stick in the ground

    (is the towelie so we don't forget to bring a towel, or for getting high and forgetting to bring the weed?)

    Do people HONESTLY get laid at coachella?

    I think it would suck to have my tent smell like sweat, armpit and pussy all weekend.

    For those of you who want to get sleep, I suggest earplugs. They're super cheap and work really well. Used 'em last year and slept in on my comfy air mattress til at least 9am each day--I had battery opperated fans in the tent with me blowing in my face, so the heat wasn't completely horrible.
    I don't have anything clever to say right now.

    DEFINITELY bring a battery operated fan. Once the sun rises in the morning your tent instantly turns into a sauna!
    We were able to sleep quite well with a fan last year
