We lucked out SO BIG getting in line at 10 pm Wednesday, getting through the gate coming off of I-24W around 11:30, and setting up at Camp Adrian (next to tent only). We were entirely prepared for BFE because that's so common for Wednesday night arrivals. We must have flipped our shiz for two hours when we could see the arch while setting up. Honestly, I don't know how three roo virgins like us got so lucky but we will forever spread the good Bonnaroo karma because of it.

I was in Adrian! last year (which was also my first Roo), great spot!
This year we got a delayed start so didn't end up in line until about 6:30am Thurday, were directed from the interstate over to the East Tollbooth and got into Camp Mitch Kramer (Pod 10) at about 9:30am.
It was our first year as well, passed the grounds on I-24 southbound at around 1:45 AM, all the way down to exit 127, then sat in traffic forever before finally making it into the east gate and Camp Mortimer Duke in Pod 10 around 7am. Not an ideal spot, but we had awesome neighbors and made it work. Heard from some others who arrived in line around 8am and were parked in less than an hour. I want to do that next year. I would actually be just fine with a similar spot next year, which was almost as BFE-as-you-can-be, if we only had to sit in traffic for an hour! On a positive note, I learned that my car could idle for around 10 hours and only use around a quarter-tank of gas, which was nice. We'll be bringing less shiz with us next time, and may opt to make a run for TO if we arrive in time and get stuck in BFE again.

Got in line on HW 55 northbound at 5:30. As per usual, we were routed to Bushy Branch. Wasn't really paying attention to the exact time but we got to our campsite somewhere between 6:30 and 7. We got put in the middle left Camp Mr. Mills in Pod 2 (right below East 1st St). We were fully expecting (and kind of aiming for) Pod 1, but were amazed when we got that spot and could see the What Stage from our camp! Best campsite (but not closest) I've ever had at Bonnaroo!
