Post Question on setting up camp
Alright I have a newbie question, which may or may not have been answered in previos threads.

The way it's looking right now, my friends and I may not be rolling in until after dark on Thursday. How dark is it in the camp areas? Or do I need to try and rearrange our schedule to get there before sunset? Or would it be better to wait until Friday morning? :?: :?:

Definatly come Thursday night. I came on friday last year and had to drop off the dogs, buy beer (because the thursday nighters drank it all), went the wrong way (for some reason, I know I know how to get there), had to find my people, set up.

I left Jacksonville at 8:15 am. Wasnt ready to party till 1:30 p.m. I was pretty agro by the time I was set up.

Just come Thursday so you can enjoy 2 full days of music.

I would say also - if you are camping on the back side - say out by the field or pines area - make sure you know where those turns are on the wanee map (in my sig) just in case the road by the mushroom stage is closed for any of the pre fest music. They may both play the music hall but it wouldn't hurt to be familiar with it and the route.

Yea I suppose I need to figure out where were camping before I drive onto the grounds in the dark. I'm sure you all would find me that way though, I'll be the crazy person in the Honda Element that looks so incredily lost!
