    I think this is a great idea. I'm surprised no one has started bitching about it yet...

    There is going to be a huge demand for empty waterbottles.

    IF you have the lid too, you can just roll it up and THEN put the lid on and it will take up less space in your bag... the idea is AWESOME but i am going alone and i seriously doubt i will drink 10 waters in one day... for couples or groups it will help subsidize the cost of water

    like i said on the other recycling thread. between the people that don't know, and the people that don't care, there are still going to be a lot of bottles to be found.

    also, there will be a good number of people still leaving bottles around the campground. if "free" bottled watre is wanted, then i'm sure it can be acheived.

    I'm hoping there is a correlation between bottle recyclers and front row hogs.
    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.

    I am for any strategy to get those bottles off the field before darkness falls! If people will pick up 10 bottles they deserve a free one! I hate stumbling over trash in the dark.

    i always found it kind of depressing to have this amazing day of music that holds high morals like recycling and conservation come to an end in a sea of empty plastic bottles.
    i'm glad they are taking strides to change the sad scene.

    This is an awesome idea.
    I am going with a group of 5! So we should get a couple "free" bottles of water each day.

    screw that, just rip half empty ones out of people's hands, drink the remaining water, and save the empty's 'til you have 10. by then you will be so well hydrated the extra bottle will be a nice bonus! although the amount of running you will have to do to get away from angry people may dehydrate a bit.

    That is what I was immagining as well. I know I will be on the look out. I wont go bottle hunting. But if I see one, I will pick it up.
    That being said, if me and a random stranger spot one at the same time, and we notice each other going for it... its on!

    Uh, I think he means the carrying case like on wine coolers.
