I ended up getting a text from one of the guys I camped next to last year. He's going VIP with his brother, but his brother's friend has a GA ticket and it's his first time going. In lieu of him having somewhat of a confusing struggle on his hands (which is no way to start off your first 'Roo) I told them I'd reroute a little and pick him up in Knoxville, where they're staying tomorrow night. So I'll be getting in line off the interstate (hopefully) around 6/7am. If any of you happen to see a little red Subaru with shade tent enclosed by tapestries, pop by and say hello! Happy 'Roo All!!
Jdrum3... yes I will. I check in at the high school @ 7 am Wednesday then I run home and load the truck provided they have the camp passes as promised.
Fwiw I have two 10 x 10 canopies and a 5 person tent. Plus my truck. I almost need 1 1/2 spaces lol.

Nice! I plan on rolling in Tuesday, as long as the have camp passes, I'll be in orange Honda Element, canopy with orange top and UT sidewall
Sounds good buddy. If you can save me some space I'll pull up there next to you. Like I said I will need probably two parking spaces for all my junk. I have a red dodge ram 4 door truck. I also have a "homeless" person I met last year who needed a tent so I'm bringin extra tent for him as well.
Well I'm SO glad I decided to go after all. I was literally never alone and it was easy as fuck to make friends. The people I camped with were pretty awesome and so were the neighbors. I'm already excited for next year

I went solo but with some Camp Inforoo people and I was definitely never alone, either. It was easy to schedule with people to attend shows together, and then on the times when I was around by myself I almost inevitably ran into some Inforoo people I knew.

TOTALLY WORTH IT. I volunteered and picked up a really cool dude I met on Ricky Rides but otherwise went by myself. I met so so SO many incredible people this weekend that I am not even a little bit bummed I went by myself. Just thought I would share my experience for any future ladies debating on going by themselves. The answer is: abso-fvcking-lutely. Just be safe

Jdrum3 and I had our own little camp inforoo compound in vendor camping. Since I had the extra shade we also has several other neighbors join us for the entire weekend and made some very good friends. Don't ever be afraid to go to Bonnaroo by yourself. It's very easy to make friends
I had a great time by myself. My camping neighbors were really nice and helped me set up my stuff. It was awesome to not worry about what someone else was doing all weekend. I also talked to more strangers this year than in the past 2 years combined. It was nice, and a good experience. I'll definitely do it again next year if none of my friends want to go.
Went alone and had a great experience even though it was plagued with bad luck... First thing happened was my tent breaking upon setup, but my neighbors were kind enough to help me tie it to their canopy so it held up over the weekend. Second thing, lost my wallet with like $200 cash & my license in it after a ride back to pod 10 on Saturday night. Luckily I had a friend there who leant me some $ to get through the rest of the fest. I guess it was meant to happen... 13th Bonnaroo, on Friday the 13th weekend, full moon... yknow. haha
BUT, all that said, I had a great time, everyone was very helpful, and I'd still go alone again next year. Makes it easier to see the shows you want to see and go where you want to go. Next time though, cash is going in my sock, and wallet is staying locked up somewhere as secure as possible. Doubt I'll ever see it again, but maybe some kind soul out there will find it during the clean-up and turn it into the lost and found... but not holding my breath.
I may have already said this but I just wanna say Thanks for all the advice I got from you guys. This was definitely one of the best memories of this year. Everyone and everything was amazing!! Even the guy who passed out in my tent that I actually knew but was too "out of it" to recognize him... I thought he was a terrorist super Mario brother :/
