I have been thinking about this for a while. Just for fun, what is the least amount of stuff you could bring to fest and still be independent and not borrow from others. Less Stuff/More Festing

Shelter Stuff:
8x10 tarp
Clothesline for tarping and hanging clothes
tent stakes
plastic drop cloth for shelter bottom
fleece sleeping bag
pillow case - stuff with items for pillow

Clothes:
2 sarongs or 2 pairs short and 2 shirts - wear one/wash one
no underwear (2/3 if you must)
no bra
thermal pants/top/socks in case it gets cold
crocs or flip flops
toothbrush
toothpaste
shampoo - use for hair/body/washing out extra clothing
comb
diva cup with ziplock and handy wipes
bandana for towel or small camp towel

Day/Night bag:
Dish/spork/soap/cut up sponge
empty water bottle for camelling up at the spigots.
bandana for sitting on or cut small plastic from drop cloth or just sit on the ground or vinyl table cloth
small bug spray
small sun lotion
emergency rain poncho or light rain jacket
small notebook/pen
safety scissors for cutting rope/plastic (can be left at home if all items are cut beforehand)
prescription meds
small led light for finding your way back to campsite
cash/ID/debit/credit card

Luxury items:
Drum/Tamborine
Costumes
Extra clothing

A feather boa? Interesting........ what color?

I forgot deodorant on my list. A must have.

I am not much on going commando, but would if I had to chose between my drum/tambourine and undies I would leave the undies at home. I like the Hennesy idea too, but for a poor gal a tarp will do. Of course this is just for fun.

Super ultra minimalist list:
Toothbrush & sarong ~~~but would not meet the requirements of being independent without borrowing stuff. It would however, make for an interesting fest experience. haha

Shelter Stuff:
1 lb. 15 oz. Ultralight Backpacker Asym hammock http://hennessyhammock.com/articles/ult ... ckpacking/

(skip fleece zip up hoodie. instead, use fleece sheet as evening wrap)
1 pr socks in case it gets cold (no underwear or no bra)
my crocs brand sandals (not flip flops so I can wear socks under if needed)
14 toothpicks with brushy end (instead of toothbrush and toothpaste travel size)
small re-bottled container of Dr Bronners (for hair/body/dish washing)
small hair comb (instead of brush)
(skip the dish sized towel for drying off and dry off with the sarong or the warm sunshine)


Day/Night bag:
bag - thin nylon sports type to carry on back
gallon sized zip loc (to hold my program!)
30 gallon garbage bag (can carry everything in and also as rain poncho and to sit on for night stage)
Dish/spork/cut up sponge
empty water bottle
3 anti-bug towelettes
pen
Excedrin

This thread is awesome! A close line is def more compact than packing 8 outfits. I kind of don't own that many clothes any way, and so only have a couple of pairs of jeans I really want to take and wear. I can drape the clothes over paracord instead of using clothes pins. I just hope it doesn't rain four days straight! If it's warm enough, I go naked in the rain. I need my tennis shoes though. I walk A LOT, even in my daily life so sandals would NOT work for me. 9/10 times I just walk instead of waiting at one of the drop offs. Convers get pretty compact though, luckily. I have some blue astroturf left over from another project I can make into a 'sit apon'. I'm getting all kinds of ideas from this thread.

Is there anyone who flies with only a carry-on and no checked baggage? I'm starting to think it's possible...

I love this thread. Strategies I have used in the past include: putting all my gear in a pile and seeing how small I can make it and setting out all my clothes and the letting my girlfriend tell me what I actually need since I always bring more clothes than I can wear!

I've never taken a towel for showers. Always used my sarong and showered in the sunny part of the day. My one splurge is a terry washcloth - yes, I know I can use my cotton scarf, but there's something about the feel of terry when washing off.

As fest is drawing near, I have to constantly revert back to the ultra minimalist list. I want to fill my car up with stuff I really don't need. Well, maybe just a few extra luxuries to make my week in the woods more pleasant.

Wow- love the minimalist idea. MY OCD was flairing up looking at the "regular" list. I traded a mid-size car for a subcompact and although going solo, being a festive virgin- I could obsess over this stuff. I actually started making my pile, albeit very neat, about a two months ago!
Thank you- my new found crazy womyn friends!
