Thanks much for this post! I have been anxiously awaiting Wanee but have had other stuff going on so I've kind of had to push it to the back of my mind. Now that we're a week out I'm trying to be super planner and put together everything for me and my friends. Everything in here is so helpful and I keep writing down more stuff that I need to do or buy to prepare. Can't wait until next Thursday when we can roll out of town on down to Wanee!

First timers.....not to Wanee but any festival.

Port-a-jons can become a bit of a pain, especially as the week goes on. Wanee does a great job of keeping them emptied, but any venue will have trouble keeping up.

Buy a portable toilet. You don't have to buy an expensive privacy tent....a tarp and string will do. The toilet below was a life-saver!

you might also want to invest in camping toilet paper. its basically a roll of toilet paper without the cardboard so it doesn't take up much room.

my girle keeps a roll in her purse at all times when we're at festivals.

Wow.

This is awesome. You all answered a lot of questions I had. My buddy and I are rookies and are driving in from ATL, and are shooting for a thursday evening arrival.

We are 25 year old working men, who enjoy music and all of the festivities that come along with it. Real laid back and enjoy a good time. If anyone out there wants to meet up or camp near eachother that would be cool., shoot me an email.

jayciro@gmail.com

I have a few questions though.

Approximately how far are most of the primitive campgrounds to the stages? I would hate to leave my stuff out ALLLLLL day long while listening to music if it is a 10-15 min walk.

Any recommendations on food? Grassy said dont bring anything to cook, but I would love to bring a small (REAL SMALL) charcoal grill to atleast BBQ some dogs and burgers.

At the campsites, can we count on parking our car next to our tent? Or is it only if we get there early?

When is the best time to arrive for primitive campers?

How much money should we bring to buy food at the festival? Is it expensive?

Thanks soo much... this really helps


There is some primative camping that is very close( 5 minutes ish) and the farthest spots are 10-15 minutes away. A small grill is a great idea....we bring one every year. i have always parked next to my tent but always get there on wed or thurs. Hope that helps.......you're gonna have the time of your life! Its magical!!

We encourage all newbies to ask all the questions they want. I promise you no one is going to berate you for asking something that's been covered before.

The pros around here have a wealth of knowledge and are willing to share.

If you are a early riser (or the kind that doesn't end up going to sleep :geek: ) make sure to high-tail it to the showers early in the morning. The lines can get long and the one we used last year (Primitive Camping...way out) did not have hot water but it felt great and was a nice refresher!
