Or try your plan and let us know.

I arrive on Wed. before opening and yes I 'land grab'. There are 3 of us that camp alone/together. We require 4 tents, 3 vehicles, 2 small shade structures and various art pieces. I'm first on site. I set up a shade structure, 2 tents, bike rack, art piece and one vehicle. So do many other beloved eplayans. We don't all get early entry. We want to loosely huddle together when everyone arrives. It's allowed. We aren't setting aside an area for a volleyball court. Just enough space to set up. The city didn't come close to filling up this year. Behind us was just a wasteland of unused space. It was a non-issue.

There is very little open space that meets that requirement - there is some, but all the purple areas on the map are reserved for theme camps. If you're through the Gate within a few hours of when they open, you get a firm "maybe". If you aim for G or further back there is way more open space, and you'll have more luck with less stress.

The streets behind that are named, but they go alphabetically from one with a word starting with "a" closest to the Esplanade, back all the way to "l" (Laughing Sal this year) farthest away. Many of us just refer to them by their initial letter for ease, since that stays the same every year - ie: "I'm on F at 4:15" - which would mean on F, half-way between 4 & 4:30 (just think of the radials as a clock).
