Whoahh.. awesome to see fellow Floridians gettin' together for the trip! We'll be leaving from Ocala in an RV.. Not exactly sure when.. I was thinking on Tuesday the 8th to have a night in Nashville but I was thinking about nixing that idea.. What's the plan??
Awesome Sheiscindy!! That's great news, Glad everything worked out!!
As far as when and where to meet... someone has to take the reins on that (I just dont know how to tackle it).
jermarooo- The plan is that we're trying to get any RV inforooers that would like to get together to make RV Camp Inforoo. This way we know we'll be in good company... I think i speak for everyone when i say "the more the merrier". So, should i count ya in??
Malo- coming from Gainesville with guitarheroo- Mi-ami=9 sheiscindy- Tallahassee, if they can PULL it off..huh..huh?...am i reachin'?<--Old news mikey39- Hotlanta Tomtom- Raleigh, NC= 5 + Beerpong table lingfan-OH, me oh MI & MO
that makes 5 maybe 6 RVs... There is always room for more ;D
Sounds good - we'll keep checking in to see what the story is. This is our 1st time to bonnaroo, so we'll let someone else take the lead on where to meet. We're actually from NY - flying down to atlanta on Monday where we'll pick up the RV and gonna spend some time on the road making our way up to Manchester.
Wooohooo this group is shaping up to be a good one. We have a nice group of 5 RV's! This is great news.
Planification in progress.
Around what time and date will everyone be arriving. I hope to get out of here by no later than 4, with stops and any delays, I say we should be arriving around 11:00 - 12:00 CST (Manchester time)...which I hope is not too late to get into the early wed open gate.
Does anyone know which gate or until what time the early Wed admission will be going on.
Potential issues: -If we wait at the Wally world it will be packed and we may have a hard time finding a space to fit 5 RV's
-Leaving the Wally world in the Morning is a mess, people do not let you in easily, once again it may separate all of us.
Potential ways around this:
- If we all arrive before Midnight or after, we can go in Wed. Night (if they allow us in)
- We could still meet up at the wally world or who ever gets there first could call us via Cell phone and give us a good spot to meet up like the gas station across the street..... Last year we got there around 1ish or 2ish and the side next to the garden section had plenty of space for three of us rvs to park...and then there was more room in the back.
Guys and Gals any input would be great, these are just some things I was throwing out there.
SET UP IDEAS:
-The original Idea can be accomplished as I said I saw a super set up ( I kept staring over there sayin....damn that's a sweet set up.) What they did was show up a bit late and just parked right on the opposite side of the gate of the search area....Ill try to get an areal map shot and show ya.
Tomtom, I know I don't post too often but you can count me in... That drive was gonna be pretty lonely..
Personally, my original plan was to leave Tuesday the 8th, have fun in Nashville for a night.. Hang around & rest during the day then get ready to start making our way in around midnight.. I know last year we started making our way into the festival around 2AM on Thursday..
That WAS my original plan but I was thinking about just nixing that day in Nashville.. If that doesn't work for you guys meeting up on the 9th is no problem..
Mayor Malo - We're noobs to Roo. I have a campground reserved about 45 minutes west of the Farm on 24. We'll pull in, fill our water tanks and be on our way in time to meet y'all whenever. Will they let us in Wed late or Thur EARLY am? We're 8 - 9 strong as of today and are stoked for Camp RVroo!
^^^I'm thinking we'll be in around 8-9pm Wed... But whatever time works for everyone else is good with us.^^
I'll put it like:
Estimated arrival time: 8-9pm on Wed ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Jermarooo- Welcome! As far as the ride goes, just get up with the other guys from FL and i'm sure you could link up with that caravan somewhere...
Malo- I agree, but don't you worry my friend, I have way more than just a BP table... we'll have enough games to go around brother...
Malo- coming from Gainesville = #? guitarheroo- Mi-ami to Gainesville=9 sheiscindy- Tallahassee = #? + Mr Rogers flag!! mikey39- NY but by way of Hotlanta!!= 3 Tomtom- Raleigh, NC = 5 + Beerpong table lingfan-OH, me oh MI & MO= 8-9 strong + A powerpoint! Jermarooo- Ocala, FL = #? + A Slip and Slide
The Lingfan caravan will leave Indy by 2:00pm. We can be at our appointed destination whenever!! Are y'all gonna stop somewhere and fill your water tanks? From what I've heard and read we should avoid Wally World if we can.
Every year we stop at the wally world in Kimball exit 152 it is south of roo. They are pretty empty and there is a gas station right across the street where we can fill up with water...but it is about 15-20 miles south of the roo entrance.
Well i just got word that my buddy (that's in my crew) just got a aerial camera attachment for his remote control plane... I think we're gonna get some pretty sweet shots with that bad boy, oh and he's got NASA type flying skills too so no worries about smashing into other sites...

2 more RV'ers for Roo coming from Gainesville, FL. F150 towing a sweet little pop up camper. Count us in! I too have seen the super site setup and it rawks when you can pull it off. We were able to pull something similar off in GA last year by arriving right as the tornado watch came through and the parking staff scattered for shelter. 3 vehicles, 500 square feet under canopies, vehicles parked every which way. It was awesome! Doubt it would have happened if the timing wasn't right.
As this is my first RV roo, quick question... Will there be a problem with the cutlery in my camper kitchen being defined as a weapon?
Looking forward to seeing you all. Planning on getting in Wed night to secure a McFly spot. Roo's so friggin close I'm already practicing not sleeping!!!
Welcome CapnFunkmeister!!! We are happy to have you guys! You're in luck, Malo and guitarheroo are leaving from Gainesville. There are a few FLrooers are meeting up there so you guys will have a nice caravan going
I'm not sure about the cutlery, I know that there's a thread with all types of info on it and the guy Gene that runs it is very helpful vvv
