The written policy for seating at the various stages is 6 inches off the ground. Any tips on how to accomplish this in a minimalist way? am flying, but also enjoy the functional side of being minimalist. Am considering this http://www.designsponge.com/2011/06/diy ... stool.html but would have to tweak the design to make it shorter. Alas I can't find any of those cheap aluminum and plastic beach chairs of old. now the 2 foot high "sports" ones are so cheap stores around me aren't carrying the old beach chairs. I know the festival was selling them in past years (bought one but it wouldn't fit in my checked luggage).

What do you use?

hg,
that stool looks fun to make and realllllllly uncomfortable to sit on for any length of time. . .

I use a "Crazy Creek Chair". . .here's REI's less expensive version of one:

they also have this, but it costs more and weighs more:

I carry my Crazy Creek chair around with all over the festival, use it at stages, meals, workshops, hanging out and chatting with friends. .. I got a piece of coated nylon to use as a ground cloth under it, and carry that with it to protect myself from dirt and/or wetness. . .

and I keep it in my car at home for impromptu picnics or group gatherings where there is limited seating or uncomfortable seating.

You can always get a low chair at the Cuntree Store.

Or, check the "borrow/loan" thread. . .some womyn are bringing chairs for others to use. . .perhaps you coud works something out.

happy packing!

it looks more sturdy then a kelysus chair too. its all about sturdy. esp if you do the hover and drop method to get into the chair.

I like that it has those little foam-covered arms. I can really grip them and push off.

Oh noooooes! I didn't know there already was a chair thread! I was checking out rei but the more money I spend the less money I have for food after fest... its like that... not exactly gainfully employeed.

Also I have sat on all sorts of uncomfortable things! You'd be surprised how much more comfortable a sweater and good posture can make something... besides I work at a multinational home improvement retailer... I'm pretty sure I can make something... it needs to be cheap and fold up and carry comfortably.

Anyway I'm off to check out the chair thread.
