Post BACKPACKS NO LONGER ALLOWED
At Bear Creek, we discovered that backpacks were no longer allowed inside the concert area. (Not sure if this was true at Hulaween.) You were permitted to take a small bag or purse or drawstring bag. We were told this was due to increased security. Save yourself an extra hike -- they won't tell you until you get to Chugpoint Charlie (best name ever!).

If things change at AURA, we will report back.

Its only a matter of time before they start strip searching. I may have to sign up for security if that happens. :lol:

They were ridiculous about it though. I have a single strap pack for my camera. It says CANON across the front and obviously held my camera. The ass at the gate was like "sorry, it's a back pack". I had to talk to a supervisor to be able to take it in. My purse is wayyyy bigger than this little camera bag. A little power sometimes makes people crazy... Or stupid.

I was just told the rules at Wanee will be the same as last year. Does anybody recall trouble at Wanee 2013? When I was at Wanee 2011, I carried in a small cooler, chair, backpack of daily goodies, etc...

I have a buddy that does work for security (Sentry). I'll see if he knows anything as he already told me he was working this year.

Will report back.

My purse is a backpack style and never had issues at Wanee or Bear Creek in 2013. So it really sounds to me that if guys are being told they can’t carry in a backpack thats discrimination.
