    I don't know why I made it a numbered list, but thanks. I didn't build the PVC thing above, that was TheClares. You can see why we wanted to park in a row, we wanted to move the cars close together to squeeze in the shade structure. The cars to the left and the right are right on the lines, so we had to depend on getting the middle car as far over as possible. The intention was to squeeze 3 cars to one side and 3 to the other.

    We just barely made it, but wound up with 6 tents and that shade area, plus there was still room to walk around AND Lickity Spit set up a wading pool back there.

    BTW, this picture was stolen by a website to represent one of the 10 "most annoying people at music festivals." ("People with stereos")

    Sparky is pretty spot on with keeping your group together. Reason with each person in a kind and respectful manner and let them know the deal and that the guy behind you approved. They don't mind helping people out if you're not a whiner.

    I definitely think one or 2 of those batteries with sockets in them are a GREAT idea, best friend in the AM when charging your phone. It seems like the phone charging station by the general store puts out no voltage when 50 people are trying to charge their phones at the same time.

    AND IGLOOS PEOPLE
    IGLOOS - Fill em up with ice on the way in, pour your water in them as soon as you have camp, way less half finished bottles of water and very easy access for the community. Just don't forget cups.

    I think you'd need some some solid structuring otherwise with the usual wind, it may blow away and then knock over several other camps considering its height. I've seen tents easily destroyed by big 4 square balls.

    I don't recall seeing anything in the rules about not erecting scaffolding, and they do it in the festival area, so you should be fine. I would suggest parking your car on the second level to create a nice shady spot underneath it.

    It's in the ADA section of website - animals are not allowed but exceptions are made for service animals. Earlier this year the definition of service animal was revised and now includes only specially trained dogs and miniature horses, which should please blind fundamentalist Muslims. Blame Obama?

    I've given the scaffolding idea some serious thought. Oh, the things I could build!!!

    Goatse.cx (pronounced either /otsiː dt siː ks/ or /ot.sks/ "goat sex" as the domain intends), often referred to simply as "Goatse", was originally an Internet shock site. Its front page featured a picture, entitledhello.jpg, showing a naked man stretching his anus with both hands, to approximately the width of his hand. The inside of his rectum is also clearly visible. Below his gaping anus, his dangling penis and scrotum are visible, as well as a golden ring on the ring finger of his left hand. This site became a notorious surprise image and Internet meme, and was—and, through external hosting, still is—used regularly for bait-and-switch pranks, preventing hot-linking in a hostile manner, and defacing websites, in order to provoke extreme reactions. Even though the display of the site was removed in 2004, its images are mirrored throughout the Internet

    I tried to find pictures of my actual set up last year but it was a no go =(

    Basically we had a car to the far right of the camp site, then we had the shady canopy, one tent under it, we had solar panels on the car, and hanging from the canopy I had a camping shower curtain set up and a kiddy pool under the shower, attached to the canopy we had the mister system. Worked quite well...

    I'm doing tent camping with a large group. We have a few spaces and plan on putting them together. We haven't had an issue doing that the last two years, just have to get there early enough to get as many as we'd bought as one section, even if that means going to the back row.

    We're going to enclose a 20'x20' area with tarps and build an active/passive solar A/C system. Essentially it's a big swamp cooler made of two towers. There are caps on the tops of each tower with tails that keep them facing into or away from the wind. The one facing into the wind has an evaporation pad inside. Air passed through and is cooled when it evaporates water on that pad. The other cap faces away from the wind, creating a vacuum which draws air out. I'm probably going to also put some 5v fans on the intake side to supplement the air.

    We're bringing a pretty significant power setup which will power the pump that keeps the hydration pad wet as well as the fans (and a bunch of other stuff, too). I believe that will drop the temp in the room by at least ten to fifteen degrees.

    Yeah, I know that some people have this idea that tent camping has to be some stripped down affair, just you and the elements, but we have a lot of fun with this and it just keeps getting bigger each year.
