Hello. I am attending BM for the first time as well. I have a huge tent and all the necessities I need to be self-sufficient, but if you want to join up and start our own "Unofficial" Camp. Let me know!

I have a 2 questions about camping, when I came in 2001 I came early first day, ok add 11 years later and about 30,000 more people. I will not arrive until 2nd day...does the bulk of the people come in the first day ? when I come on day 2 will there still be spots or will I have to camp in the walk in spots? I am by my self (1 Car 1 Tent 8x7) :?:

Go look at any of the satellite photos. Tons of room. You can even see the typically sparsely populated spots.

So, the sun rises in the east and sets in the west..
Which way does the wind blow?

normally I would think its kinda random, but everyone is saying to park your car so its a wind blocker, so that makes me think it always blows the same direction.

Set up your camp, then park four cars around each side of you and you should be good to go.

If you are only driving a single car (which is soooo 1997), then the wind generally blows from the south-southwest. And sometimes from the north. A few times from the east.

In others words....it can blow in any direction but generally from the south. Maybe.
