Well, I'm limited because I'm flying in, but I am a lot better in packing lighter than I was last year. Last year, I had two rolling suitcases, a duffle bag and a purse. This year, probably just my hiking backpack and a duffle bag with my Camelbak inside it. Let's hope, anyway. I'm not rolling through that bog all the way to the shuttle again. :-)
i'm coming in with two bags, one on my back and one rolling, both under fifty pounds, tent and sleeping bag and all that shit takes up most of the space. i won't be fresh and fashionable, and i'll have to buy food. but i'm not even bringing a cell phone. so i will be self sufficient and completely off the grid from my normal life. some things i won't go without (even though it's my first time)... baby wipes, toilet paper, sunscreen, sunglasses, cash, poncho. it would be neat to fill your car with amenities and beer and shit to share with other people, however, it is a fun and timeless challenge to go in with barely anything on your back... have a great time!

My dad and I always keep it minimal, as we don't spend much time at camp (too busy catching music.) We had a tent, the air mattresses in it and some sheets/pillows. One chair to sit in. Everything else (food/clothes/etc.) we kept in the car. Made it super easy to pack up this morning in the rain.

I bring 2 pairs of shorts, 2 skirts, 1 pair of pants, 4 tees, 2 pairs if underwear(not required with skirts) 1 hoodie, 1 backpack, 1 pillow, 1 very light tapestry for a blanket, 4 bottles of water, 6 cans of pepsi. and wallet
36 pack of water 12 pack of Gatorade cooler 22 lbs of ice 70 oz hydration pack 36 pack of granola bars 20 pack of sanitary wipes 4 changes of clothes 3 pairs of shoes shemagh (in the picture) sunglasses can of sunscreen deodorant disposable toothbrush camping chair $200 DSLR
Ienvy you who decide to go minimalist. I brought too many clothes but only because I had experienced the deluge of 04 and didn't want to be stuck in wet clothes. I also brought too much alcohol. I didn't open my box of wine or my bottle of vodka or my second case of beer. I didn't drink anywhere near as much as I thought I would. I wanted to make sure I was hydrated for the psychedelic nights. I did not bring too much food though,

Well seeing as security didn't care about folding chairs in camel back packs, next year I'm bringing in my hiking hammock. Put that under one of the big communal tents over near the comedy tent, and I'm just going to stay in centroo next year for 4 straight days. Go back to my vehicle to refill my camping flask with whiskey, and let my old lady sneak her wine bladder in under her shirt like she did this year. Wed be set to never leave
I'm a fly in as well, so it's pretty limited. I think last year I had my tent, sleeping bag, sleeping mat, 3 shirts, 3 shorts/skirts, a dress, 2 pairs of shoes (mudboots and fivefingers), and a bag of apples/oranges (boo scurvy!).
Definitely the worst part of being a fly in is not having space for an EZ-up, I think I might see if there's any way I can squeeze one in this year because they really are amazing
EDIT: oh, and a HUGE first aid supply because I worry too much
