Go to Rob's Seafoods and Burgers in Post Falls. Yes, seafoods. It's also a bulk cigarette shop. That's fucking right! Rob's Seafoods and Burgers and Cigarettes. Don't even think about not stopping and don't you dare not order some seafoods and burgers. CalmYoTits, THIS IS NO JOKE!
This sounds like a quality establishment. I'll have some seafoods, my travel mates will have some burgers, and we'll smoke that place dry. Ugh, just typing that makes my lungs hurt. But in all reality the duty free is probably the right idea, good thinking davers.
In daily life I usually choose the route of cancer avoidance, but at festivals I try to take a constant positive attitude of "Sure, why not?" This usually results in drinking warm PBR and smoking Marlboros but I regret NOTHING

HG getting all Biblical! Haha thanks for the heads-up DrEwe, I'm hoping to stop in Idaho since we'll be stopping there for cigarettes anyways. We made the unfortunate mistake last year of buying a carton in Seattle for close to what it would cost us back home, then discovered cancer sticks are way cheaper in Idaho. Live and learn I guess.
Indeed! Thanks crowell, that's an idea I hadn't thought of! We'll probably drive through Idaho and then over to Washington - probably stop in Coeur d'Alene or something and hit a Wal Mart. Thanks for the suggestion!
They're actually building a Target within walking-distance from my house but it's the first one in this city (and province?) and it won't be open until after Sasquatch. So Wal-Mart and dollar stores it is!
I had one like this and it lasted me four festivals. It only finally broke because one of my friends snapped one of the sides when trying to force it shut. Pretty good buy for $30 (found it on a great sale)!
You can try the bungee cord idea but I've found all that really matters is that you have strong guy lines for each corner. Try wrapping solar lights around the ropes or placing solar stakes at the pegs so you don't trip on them at night. And taking the canopy cover down is a good suggestion too but I think I only bothered to do that once.
Awesome, thank you! I'm going to be scouring amazon (as soon as I have money) to get lights for the camp for porpoises of a) not tripping, and b) finding my tent at high levels of intoxication. I think I'll probably over-prepare this year as far as securing the thing. Honestly I foresee us using bungee cords but in entirely irrelevant ways, and taking the canopy cover off (while a hassle) might just be the saving grace.

If anyone has a photo of what such a bungee-rigged set-up looks like in its completed form, that would be killer! I'm having trouble picturing it. If not, my camping buddies and I will crack some beers and get creative!

Does anyone have any suggestions for securing a shade structure? We did without one last year and seriously regretted it, but I'm apprehensive of bringing one this year due to the number of shade structures I saw being ripped out of the ground by the crazy Gorge winds, despite being hammered down (I was scared we were going to go on a wind-propelled rolling tent adventure one morning). So, any tools of the shade trade to share?

I started reading through this board last year before my first Sasquatch and I found it really helpful. This year I want to be more involved with the board, so I figured I'd introduce myself in the same way as others in this thread.

So far I'm liking that new Postal Service track! I wonder who the female vocalist is that's featured. So so happy they're playing Squatch, especially since their tour isn't hitting any Canadian cities.
