A little info for a couple of first timers.

A little info for a couple of first timers.

Postby Reddog » Mon Dec 09, 2013 4:33 pm

Greetings from Oklahoma! Li'l Mama and myself will be making our first trip MDJ this coming summer and we had a few questions. First, is anyone out there going to be camping in South Wooded...needing some party buddies. Second, is there anywhere on site for breakfast and coffee? We bought the Rockstar package so dinner is covered and I figure lunch from vendors, but was curious about breakfast. How much to rent your own porta potty? About the meet and greet drawings, once you are selected for one, can your name be drawn again for other bands or are you done once you win one? And lastly, is there ever a pick collecting group that gets together to trade? That's about it...for now. Any info would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks so much,
Reddog

Greetings Reddog... I don't think you should worry about finding party buddies, so I'll let them come out of the woodwork. There is a breakfast buffet in the Lazy Moon every morning (along with a Bloody Mary bar). Renting your own porta-potty is about $120 if I remember correctly (well worth it, not sure how we did it without one). That is done privately through Port-able John (http://www.portablejohn.net/). Meet and Greets are a crapshoot because it all depends on how many the band allows (if any). Most of them are divided between VIP and Rockstar. Not 100% sure how the drawing works for Rockstar, but if you have a few bands you really want to meet, ask about it when you show up. Ask your host or hostess on the StageBox or in Billy's Backstage Bar. Most of the time, they don't find out until the day of the show and sometimes not until the band arrives. Checking in the early afternoon each day helps. There is also a drawing in VIP. It seems like there are less meet&greets every year. One tip if you are going into south wooded is that there are a lot of hills back there, so if you have an RV or camper, bring some decent blocks in case you need to level several feet. The shade there is well worth it though!

Couldn't agree more Pink! Last year was my first year. I'm from Kansas so your basically my neighbor! Trust me when I say you will meet so many new friends and party buddies. Luckily I went with my best friend and MJD veteran Chris (who by the way, has very good previews and reviews of all the bands you will see this year, on this message board). So he showed me the ropes. Everyone was very welcoming and friendly. Camp Howler is my home at MJD. I knew before I even seen the first band play that I was going to have a great time and would be coming back. I am a "MJD Lifer" now! Stop by Camp Howler so we all can meet you!

Troy I remember us having a conversation last year about how you were hooked and coming back before we had even saw a national band play! Can't wait for this year!
The music brought me to Moondance Jam. The people bring me back.

Private portables are up to $150, but still a great deal.
