If you're worried about being hot in your tent, a camping cot is a much better option than an air bed. They allow for more ventilation and you don't wake up drenched in sweat and stuck to your air mattress.
Alex, somebody ransacked your tent? If anybody ever sees somebody in a tent you know they don't belong in, Fucking cripple them.
Beer Utility belt is a great idea. Any sort of drinking apparatus is a great idea, we saw some folks last year who somehow fashioned about 5 shot glasses to a snow ski and simultaniously took them by lifting the ski to thier mouth. We're totally stealing that idea this year. If you need a beer bong see know id yuh.
Another great tip. if you plan on bringing meat (lunch meat, bacon, that sort of thing) throw it in the freezer a week before you go. then by day three that bacon you froze will make some awsome fucking breakfast.
yeah when everybody was at the concert on the 2nd day someone went through it. Door was unzipped, blankets and air beds tossed about. Luckily I was militant about locking everything in the trunk of the car and out of sight. A few sites down some tents got the same treatment and I heard that a passport and wallet were stolen. Would not want to have to deal with that.
The ski you're talking about is commonly referred to as a Shotski, and can result in all kinds of hilarity if there is a really tall or a really short person involved.

Sorry to hear that, Alex. That could be one of the best pieces of advice to give to a new Sasquatcher--or anyone camping at a festival. Leave all valuables in the car, out of sight, and triple lock your car!
I double-locked the stuff I was really paranoid about losing (passport, most of my wallet, etc) in a lockbox in the trunk. Granted, someone could have simply taken the lockbox if they got into the trunk, they probably wouldn't have been able to get into it and steal my identity.
true enough. Knew a guy once who bought a used car and drove across the border. Border patrol stopped him and he was lippy or something so they searched his car and found a "how to grow marijuana" book crammed under a seat.
Needless to say he was detained for a little while.
I was scared shitless to cross the border for the first time.. So bad that after I crossed I forgot that it changed from kilometers per hour to miles per hour.. I went 25 kilometers per hour for 10 minutes before I figured out why everyone was passing me.
