[quote="BottleofRum"]You can buy a small Coleman Camping toilet for $70-$80 at Target. Then make some sort of make shift stall around it. A few years back the people next to us had one of these, they let us use it and it worked great, of course if you have to do more than…..well…. pee then you may have a problem…….. They did however leave it behind when the show was over I don’t think anyone wanted it in their vehicle smelling as bad as it did.[quote="BottleofRum"]

The ladies in our group came up with a cheap alternative to an actual camping toilet. They put a toilet seat ($10 or so) on a 5 gallon pail which is lined with a large plastic trash bag. They set it up between two open side doors on a car/truck and hang a blanket between the doors. VOILA!! At the end of the night, the bag comes out and the bucket and toilet seat are stored until next year. Truth be told, the guys like it too. We can pee and still see over the car doors and not miss any of the action!!
Indecision may or may not be my problem....

I finally updated my profile. I moved last month and am now only 15 minutes away from GW!!

Sorry, no pool but a nice deck and a perfect yard for Volleyball.
Plans call for a Jacuzzi in one corner of the deck, but that's not in the budget until next year.

My house is the launching zone for this years concert and Breakfast starts at 9am (or so I'm told) A post concert party will probably happen naturally as the caravan arrives back!

IMPORTANT QUESTION!

Okay, so I'm a little slow on this, but I just remembered that "Premier Parking" thing on TM. Is this the only way to get to the lot where the REAL fun is? (ie - BuffettBus, etc...) I imagine I could just walk over there if I parked somewhere else, but it would be nice have the truck in the middle of everything. Do those of you that get there as soon as the lot opens and party all day pay the $30 from TM or no? Info will be muchly appreciated! Thanks and have a nice day!

Admission to the parking lot is included in the ticket price so no extra money is needed. Spend it on beer instead :)

There's a Great Woods show this summer??? Oh my goodness gracious!! Where did you hear this nasty rumor and how long before this rumored show is going to take place??????
The RUMOR is 17 more days, but it probably just one of those frequent BN stories about Jimmy's supposedly coming to my favorite bar, oh-my-God, I can't wait!!! 8) :lol: :wink: :pirate:

I honestly don't know. I know my ticket has a parking fee included with it and in all my years at GW, I've never had to pay a parking fee. Just drive in and start partying. If there IS premier parking, I don't want anything to do with it anywayr. I want to be with the real phans :)

You need Italian tassle loafers, expensive metallic sunglasses and a logo shirt to get into Premium parking, wherever it is, so we're all SOL!!!!

Ok... from what I understand, there really is Premium Parking this year. I got an email from them regarding this service. I think it's about $30 per car. From talking to others who know about this service, it seems they put you in or near the limo lot, so you can manage a quick getaway at the end of the night...

I wouldn't go for this service since hanging out in the lot AFTER the show is a whole mess o' fun!!!

I am coming 2500 miles to see the show....and mostly the GW crazy parking lot. Next to the Irvine show, Great Woods is THE BEST tailgate.

You will be well served to avoid premier parking, most folks here are not phans, hang with us crazy common pholk...it will be well worth the lot issues after the show.

Just a thought....

Each year there are a few Limo's in the GW lot for Buffett and everytime we walk by we just laugh, the people there never look like they are having fun and the poor drivers are all dressed up in a black suits looking very unhappy....and hot......... :roll: :roll:

we went to the neil young show earlier this summer the premier parking is on your left as you drive in the main lot we had vip tix last year and that let's you park there as well the advantage is it empties first at the end directly in front of the we of course gave that pass away, had to be with the rv's.


FYI we have brought an RV to the last five years shows and have never been stopped to show tix so if you are with an rv, and plan on geting tix you will probably be waived right it.

True on both points, I now remember them building a new lot on the left as you pull in so they are using it for teh VIP's. And if you are in an RV you will get waved right in without showing tickets.
