First time on the boat and I'm struggle city over here trying to think of everything we would need, want, have to have things and my brain quit working awhile ago. Can anyone help a girl out and give me a packing guideline? I've tried looking up festival packing guidelines online but they just seem to be missing things..... Any and all help is very much appreciated

Can't WAIT till Sunday!!!

there are links to a few packing lists in the FAQ, and I think this is a pretty good/recent one too:

Here's a huge checklist that is a general festival guide generated by the St. Bernards team at Waka/Harvest. Mostly geared towards camping festivals it's still very thorough.

*Passport
*Clothes and costumes
*Hoodie/Long sleeved something
*Good shoes - Sandals, tennis shoes - You may think you'll want to be barefoot all the time, but you won't. The boat is a quarter of a mile long and drinks get spilled in the venues. Bare feet and sticky floors are a very bad combination.
*Lanyard
*Poster tube
*Sunglasses (more than one)
*Band-aids for blisters
*Tums
*Dry erase markers for your room. You can leave messages on the mirror for your roommates. You can also leave messages on your room phone from any phone on the boat. It's a good way to communicate
*I take excessive amounts of Airborne. People are sick and I don't want to get it.
*Antibacterial soap for your bathroom.
*Reusable water bottle. There is free juice in the morning at the buffet and you can keep some in your room fridge using your bottle.
*Power Strip

Pro Tips:

*The lights in your room will work with any card, not just your ship card. This way you can keep the lights on and not walk out and forget your room key. Just remember to take it out from time to time so that the porter will come in and clean your room. The light being off is the only way they know you aren't in the room, and they won't come in if you're in there.

*People like stuff. Bring anything to share and you will make a lot of friends. Tattoos, stickers, glitter, whatever you like. Just remember that not everyone likes glitter, so always ask first. And don't stick your stickers on the boat. Actually, don't stick anything on the boat. Unless you use painters tape because it comes right off.

Extension cord!

The cabins have one plug at the desk. My cabinmate is a taper, so I give him the desk for all his gear. I then run the extension cord around the room to our night stands where I put a power strip. This gives us another place to plug in stuff like phones and alarm clocks. Having both next to your head set to go off is key to waking up on time.

Something to corral your hair. I use bandanas. The wind on the pool deck blows all day long and when facing the stage it's at your back. If you have long hair it gets all in your face.
