Post wheelchair ACCESS.
I have been to the last 2 Wanee fest. Im in a wheelchair due to polio. Im also 60. The first year at Wanee I hunted for electric to charge my power chair. I also camped with younger folks. Well they want to camp way off the paved RD. SO Here is my remedy.When I go to the diff. stages to hear a band I plug in to the power poles at each stage. So instead of charging my chair over night, I charge during the shows. Its truly a lot easier than the first year...Now to salve my camping spot. Im looking for a place to park my truck. I sleep in it. I would like to have a spot close to the paved RD. If someone has room for me to park I would appreciate it. Me and a friend. one truck.... The reason I ask is I may not get to Wanee until Thur.....Im 60 I like to play music and cookwhen Im not at the stage. I like the fest type gatherings. I dont drink but dont care what anyone else does. I do party.Im not desperate but it would be nice if I knew I had a parking spot. I need 8 foot on my passenger side for my wheelchair lift. and my friends tent. I look forword to hearing from you. I seen a few names on here I recognize, Hey the line up isnt a great one BUT its the WANEE experience and the people. Ive seen The ABB most of my life .I love ABB.PANIC,TTB. thats WANEE. peace....I hope this helps others with same issue I have with my mobility.DONT count on getting a ADA site. Walkers snag those sites rite away.

Camp Volke is just off the paved River road, just past the left turn to Hidden Woods. You are MORE than welcome. There is a building just up the road with outlets on the outside also, should the showtime charges not prove enough.

I can also bring a generator to charge you up, just let me know.

Captain Brian may come along with a closer/better offer also. He has QUITE the Ponderosa in W/E member sites going on.

But you are covered now, feel free to improve your condition as others chime in.

No worries.

You are welcome, you have a guaranteed place.

All I was saying is it is early, and many Sisters and Brothers have yet to chime in. Many cant chat at work like I do. ;)

You may find much more fitting accommodations closer. If they are offered, take them. I will take no offense if a better offer crops up and you take it, so dont hesitate.

I will hunt you down and get a cherry, however. :lol:
