Shopping/Packing List - Don't Forget the Undies!

I figured I needed to do a What to Bring/Preparations post before it got too late, and for tips on food, check out my previous post here and click here for some tents I suggested. And if you thought my rage stool was awesome, you should start getting yours ready for the festival.

Now for everything else. Except clothes. I feel that everyone has their own style and whatnot, so I won’t go into that. BUT I DO SUGGEST GOOD SUNGLASSES, SUNSCREEN AND A HAT IF YOURE INTO HATS. I hate to sound like a mom, but the sun can do irreparable damage to us partiers, so it’s super important to stay sun-safe. Plus, getting burned is never any fun, so don’t let something so easily preventable ruin your weekend!!! Oh also, underwear. I don’t wanna smell yall’s butts.

Okay now really for everything else. Here’s a checklist.
  • Tarps
  • Tent
  • Pillow
  • Sleeping bag
  • Flashlights and glowsticks (make sure batteries wont need replacing)
  • Umbrellas/shade tents (something to make base a shady area, you can get creative with tapestries and rope!!)
  • Chairs (lawn/camping/lazy boys)
  • Lots of water
  • Towels
  • Some sort of table/surface for home base
  • Trash bags (KEEP CAMP CLEAN!!!!!!)
  • Utensils
  • Plates
  • Paper Towels
  • Bottle opener
  • Bug Spray (though I don’t really think the bugs bother anyone that much)???
  • Camera
  • Fun things like hoops, balls, whatever…
  • Lighters
  • Cash monaaayyyyy

And so so important: ICE
Here is what I suggest: Pack a whole separate cooler just for ice. Buy some at a gas station right outside Camp before you go in, and fill up the whole cooler. And never open it. And keep it in the shade. Only open it when you need to replenish your food/drinks cooler with more ice. Some campers have even bought dry ice, and if you think it’s necessary, you can go ahead and do that. Also wear gloves.

So I think I got everything? Print out this list when you start packing/shopping for that weekend, so you gets everythings. And if you wanna add some things or you have some unique/good ideas, comment below!!
