What thing(s) couldn't you live without at Fest? I'm thinking air mattress for sure and baby wipes.

My Jetboil, to make coffee! I know I could go to Saints and buy it, but that would take a bunch of time. I like to get up, get coffee, and sit and listen to the birds a while before I head over for breakfast. Maybe finger through the program and see what I'm not going to do that day. =D

Youtube has Jetboil videos, too. When I saw the guy make coffee in a canoe in the middle of a lake in 3 minutes, I was sold. =D

I probably wouldn't have used the lake water, though.

Jetboil's are super popular amongst long distance motorcycle riders, with very little packing room they work out great!

Jetboil sounds great. Was looking them up and saw a recall notice for one type of them (sold 2008 and forward).

If you enter: jetboil safety recall notice poster into google, you can find pictures of the recalled model.

So I was telling Linda that I found this camp stove for $15. If you are on a canoe or biking, likely not as easy but for making coffee at fest, pretty good deal:

Here is another question, camp decor!!! wooo hooo!!!!

Hi - In the photos I have seen some campsites with fun string lights. Is there electricity at the sites or do you have to have battery operated lights only? If so, can anyone recommend where to get fun battery operated lights? I have found some basic LED tiny bulbs but in the pictures they are flamingos and cats. Thanks.

No electricity anywhere (unless you registrar for DART camping and need to plug in for medical needs only). Last year we had some multicolored dragon fly lights, battery operated, that we found at Big Lots.

Thanks Trix! Also just want to confirm what I've read, I can bring food and cook at my site? Do they sell bags of ice onsite?

ej, from what I have heard you can cook at your camp sites if you do not want to eat what is provided. And bags of ice are for sale on site.

Just to confirm for the festie virgins. Yes, you can cook at your campsite, anything you want. Just be safe with fire there isn't a fire dept around. Ice is for sale, I think it runs around $2 a bag... at the cuntry store and in rv.

Thanks! Are there fire rings? Or can you make your own?
