We had a huge canopy and three tents to set up; we got there around 3:00 on Friday and they tried give us the equivalent of a parking space. Room for one tent, max.
So I went up to the LiveNation goon and said, dude. We have three tents and this huge fucking canopy, we need more space. The guy says, the rule is nothing can be between the cars. And I said, the RULE is four people to a camping pass. We're moving our car and setting our shit up.
By Saturday afternoon they seem to have abandoned trying to tell people where to camp entirely. But did anyone else notice that LiveNation were SUPER FUCKING ASSHOLE MONGERS this year? Goddamn. More than usual.

yeah> when we pulled in, our group just confused the shit out of the guy directing everyone in. We just started basically yelling random shit and overwhelmed him until he left, and we ended victorious with our 2 cars in 3 cars worth of space. still pretty cramped though. Its cause they knew it was gonna be way worse than last year.
We actually had a lot of space and made good friends with the crew behind us so we had twice as much space. We had a circle of chairs, a big tarpish tent for when it rained, and a grill/table, plus room for all of our tents. Keep in mind that we were in the far corner of overflow though, I guess.
literally the only reason my group doesn't camp at wildhorse is because of the interesting people we meet while walking around the campground every year, or even just those that come by when we're lounging around on our camp chairs. it seems as though premier camping gets worse every year so we definitely don't stay there for any other reason than what i mentioned.
we would have been fucked for space, but we pulled our cars forward to just behind the honey buckets. we set up where our cars would have been. we were lucky. those junkies telling us where to park weren't reasonable. with our improvisation, it was an awesome time as usual
Speaking of stealing flags. I came back after the first day to find my flag gone from the flag pole I made. I half-Dr. Garbanzoured someone would steal it at some point so I honestly didn't let it bother me. Then on the last day when I was pulling the flag pole down off the camper we attached it to, lo and behold...there it was resting on the top of the camper. The wind must half blown it off. Either way...here was my most excellent reaction:
Yeah I had mini flags for the car, and on the first night one went disappearing real quick. After we wondered GA for a while, met Mr. Fox and Bforeman, we came back, and someone had tried to raise it themselves... So we went on a retrieval mission.... Mission accomplished.
yes the most passive aggressive person i've ever cyber met
