i somehow managed to minimize the things that my bestie and i usually bring since it was suppose to be just her this year (to make it easier for her to get set up and what not) and i realised (when i got ther for the weekend) that we could probably do it again next year. less just in case stuff and keep the common sense stuff and ur good it was nice to get it all in one trip for once. we (like most of the womyn on the land) have our group we camp with up off the solo path so less trips is always better lol
though i am considering the thermarest pads for us too.trying to figure how that would work for space with my need to consolidate stuff and all
always trying to make the next year even better though :D

I will definitely find a more distinctive mesh bag for my dining stuff-lost track of how many times I couldn't find my bag among all the other identical white mesh bags.

I will camp somewhere other than beside the road in Amazon Acres. It was so noisy with shuttles going until 1am, porta jane trucks at night and a delivery truck one night. Next time - along workshop way or Jupiter jumpoff.

I acted upon my promise to myself to get a travel trailer that I could comfortably pull behind my SUV, sell my SUV tent and get ready for Fest next year and other camping experiences. Yesterday, I bought a used Aliner popup that will serve my needs well, so I will have a great Fest next year!

Nightengale- We always tie a colored ribbon on our mesh bag where it would hang on the hook. Makes it WAY easier to find, and we can keep our plain-jane black mesh bag.

Red suit of some kind, or perhaps just a red tie and red vest, for the butch strut.

A cot! Any recommendations? I'm tired of the waves of the air mattress and want to get my butt a little higher off the ground.

LOL- I want to see the tent chandelier!!! I love it!

Thanks for the reminder about the battery operated lights. Any ideas where I can buy them this time of year?
I want to bring my screen room so I can hang out and invite friends over without inviting the mosquitoes too.

Hi, KG!! I love that you're on here now. :)

So, I just googled a tent chandelier, and here's what I found... This guy created a tent chandelier out of an umbrella and string lights--clever. :)

Tofu Tattoo,

I switched from air mattress to cot 2 years ago and am so happy I did! I found a pretty decent, sturdy, easy to set up cot on Ebay for about $45. The material stays taut once it's set up, which provides good support. Bins can be stored in the space under the bed and you never have to pump it back up after you sleep on it!

LJB :)
