Yeah I just figure if you jump out and start throwing shit everywhere for fear of getting boxed in, you are essentially boxing someone else in.
Long hair, don't care. It isn't like I am being a dick by claiming space, I am considerate of others, and we are all adults so if they have an issue they can just tell me. We aren't, like, storming the campground. Once I have my space and my setup the weekend commences. My promise to myself at Sadquatch is to not worry about anything, so if I get established and comfortable first thing then I can just chill the fuck out from there.
I know you probably aren't hording real estate like its going out of style, but I've seen people jump out of cars like they are going to war (red team go! Blue team go!). I just find it a lot more effectiv e to say hey to the people you will be living beside for the next 5 days so that way no one feels the need to compete for space.
Last year had an abundance od space anyway so no one cared, but if things are a bit tight making a team camp with the neighbours makes a big difference.
