Post First Timers to Wanee
Hello everyone!

I'm apart of a 8 person crew headed to your glorious festival, it's our first time attending and we're very excited.

What tips/hints can you give me about having the most fun possible at the event?

Your advice is appreciated.

Remember that it is a marathon and not a sprint...
Don't expend all your energy in one day....there are lots of good music and pick and choose who and when you want to dance and when you want to rest at camp.
Be good to your neighbors and they will be good to you. Share what you have with anyone and they will in turn share with you what you might have forgotten. Don't be "that guy" that is loud and abusive.
Respect the law officers and they will not harass you...don't be too open with any contraband...they will occasionally arrest someone that goes beyond the boundaries.
Study the maps at the top of the topics page and know your way around the park before you get there. When in doubt, ask for help getting around. This park is known for being a friendly environment and neighbors are known to be helpful.
Any of us on the forum is available for anything that you might want to know.
Most importantly, read people comments on here and you will get lots of useful information.
Welcome to Wanee World and hoping you have a grate time.
Don't camp in an area with numbers...those spots are reserved. Otherwise, there plenty of "primitive" camping areas.

Welcome to the forum and the wonderful world of a Wanee! Don't forget clothing for all weather. We were cold at night our first Wanee and have been through downpours on others.

when camping... plan for the 4 seasons, no matter what the forecast says...
Hot
Cold
Wet
Dry

You'll use them all at some point in Florida

This may be the most important thing. Nothing you prepare for will matter if you don't remember where you are camped. You do not know where you are going, and where you are going looks different than it did when you are walking back. Here is some good advice. Mark your campsite. Use Lights and unique flags. Say to yourself. I am camped X amount of feet this cardinal direction from this distinctive permanent landmark. The Yellow van is not a permanent landmark. The twisted oak tree is not distinctive. I have seen very smart people feel really stupid because they left camp for the venue at 3:00pm on Thursday and are trying to find camp at 1:00 am Friday after the show. 8,000 people just showed up while you were watching the band and your camp looks nothing like it did when you get back. There is a guy camped in what you thought was your camp.
