Medford here. Flying down. If you are going solo, do not drive unless you have at least 2 vacation days after the event. It's a 17-18 hour drive. Driving down is easy. You're hyped up and excited. Driving back will kill you. You'll be dead tired and your brain will want to shut down.

We lost at least one member of the TW family last year when he fell asleep at the wheel driving back to CO.

Any advice on getting all this stuff there via air travel.  Sadly driving is not an option for us and we're going to be camping in Dreamville.

I know a ton of people used walmarts  site-to-store option and picked things up when they got there. Granted this is very much a "buy cheap so you don't mind leaving it behind" method.

If you fly Southwest, they have 2 checked bags for free. Just an FYI.

Also remember the following:
-- it's quite a hike from the parking lot -> camping. So make sure the things you pack are light.
-- Rolling luggage(with the tiny wheels) is of no help. You're walking through fields/grass/mud. The wheels get jammed with crud within about 20 feet, so you end up dragging it.

The comfort VIP is for inside the festival only. I'm 99% sure there are no perks in Dreamville.

The VIP area in the festival is good and bad.

Good: Shade, benches, restrooms, etc.

Bad: It's at the far FAR back of the stage areas.

Not sure why you posted this 3 times.

Phone charging:

You will need some sort of portable recharging unit. Options available:

1) Buy a solar panel power pack
-- Expensive initial upfront costs, but probably cheaper over multiple festivals vs buying batteries
2) Battery operated rechargers
-- 4 double AA batteries
-- Charges phone approx 1.5 times.
3) Rent one from TW.
-- They have a $40 down payment and you get $20 back when you return it.
-- You get another one when you turn in the discharged one.
-- Limited supply during the day, you may have to go back multiple times to see if they are in stock.
-- Charge phone approx 1.5 times
-- Before you ask where to buy, these have not gone on sale yet.
4) "Borrow" an outlet from TW
-- People were unplugging light posts and other official lighted things and plugging in phones
-- TW electrical staff did try to combat this


Showers:
-- Last year, the guys showers were basically 14 (iirc) little plastic stalls with a shower head
-- hot water was hit and miss
-- girls definitely had the short line advantage.
-- EZ tent showers are free
-- Regular Dreamville showers will run you 2 tokens ($4.44)
-- Bring normal toiletries and you'll be good.

As for the medical. I have no idea. I would definitely get in touch with the TomorrowWorld people BEFORE you go down to work out the details of what you need.

The boozebag is $75 worth of tokens. You just get the bag and a small souvenir book. It's slightly more convenient as you don't have to wait in the token line.

Yes, you can leave to pick up more ice/booze/supplies. However, this was just recently posted to the Official DV FAQ (this is new this year):

If you have purchased a DreamVille 5 Day Parking pass or DreamVille Specials 5 Day Parking pass we request that your vehicle stays in its spot for the duration of the weekend to experience all DreamVille has to offer. If you do have to leave the festival site and wish to return, you must do so during the specific hours listed below.  For any car that leaves site and returns there will be a $20 re-entry fee.  We cannot guarantee that your vehicle will be parked in the same lot upon return.

There is no same day vehicle re-entry for any other vehicle pass at TomorrowWorld.

Daily hours vehicles are allowed to exit & re-enter*

Thursday: After 10pm only
Friday: 6am – 10am & 7pm – 9pm
Saturday: 6am – 10am & 7pm – 9pm
Sunday: 6am – 10am & 7pm – 9pm
* Cars will be charged a $20 re-entry fee each time they return to their parking lot. Cars are not guaranteed to be parked in the same lot they left

If you are going solo, you must stay in Dreamville. Do not worry about friends, you will instantly make some in your neighbors. Or if your personality is up for it, just walk up to a large group and ask to hang out with them. I would bet large sums of money they offer you a drink and a seat.

I guess I should have clarified, I bought ice off the truck in Dreamville. But you are correct, it wasn't available until the 2nd day. But I'm hoping that was just a logistical screw up on TW's part and will be fixed this year.

My experience: Stayed in the EZ tent area at TomorrowWorld. As this is a TomorrowWorld forum, I'm going to assume your asking these questions about TomorrowWorld.

1) No. The showers in the EZ tent area are free.

2) Yes. There is a BBQ area within the EZ tent area that is only accessible to the EZ tent people.

3) No reasonably priced cooler will keep ICE for 3 days. The cooler will stay cool, but not cold. You can buy ice at the festival, but it's kind of expensive. Thinking it came out to $9-10 for a 20 lb bag.

4) Yes, you can enter and leave at almost any time. They do close entrance to the parking lots after a certain time of day, I can't recall exactly (it will be posted on the official site), but I'm thinking it was late evening. I think it was late evening though. Last year, people were making beer and ice runs all the time.

General Information / Re: Carrying all your camping gear at once??
« on: September 24, 2013, 10:11:05 PM »
I didn't hear that. The wagon idea was because the camping sites aren't particularly close to your car, so you may need multiple trips and thus a wagon makes it easier.

People are confusing the following from the email that was sent out:

There is no car camping at TomorrowWorld, therefore you will need to carry or roll (we suggest a wagon) all of the materials you'll need with you from your car to your camp site, so pack accordingly!

I just picked up these two bad boys:

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B009USAJCC/ref=oh_details_o02_s02_i05?ie=UTF8&psc=1

I haven't tested whether the solar powered one would charge the power bank/pack, but doubt I'll need it. Granted we'll see as I'll be using them to charge 3 phones and a camera :P

I own the 4000mAh version of your first link (the solar charger) and I am horribly unimpressed. It takes forever to charge and works for crap under cloud cover. I used it at Bonnaroo and strapped it to my backpack. It barely charged to 25% during the entire 12 hours I was in the sun on the festival grounds.
