I bought a couple of aluminum replacement tent poles from Cabelas. There only 7 feet long. So I attach them to the side poles on my awning.  
Skyrunner, that sounds much better than pvc! Thanks for the tip!

These are good as well for tailgate type spots. Might be difficult at the campground and certainly not allowed inside the festival :)

Just made one last trip to the camp store to finish out the last of the gear we needed. Got to run out to our land this weekend and gather our kitchen set-up and we'll be packed up for gear and clothes. Next week is food and drink prep then hello high country! Luckily tomorrow night Mr. Waters will keep my mind off Telluride for a few hours. Be seeing yall sooner than later!

Yeah when I saw Lucious would be with RW I was so stoked.  I am seeing him Saturday.  Definitely need a distraction from my excitement.  This work stuff is not doing it.   Cheers

The Burkes (Pat & Jenny) will be rolling in very late Tuesday night, if all goes well. Driving from Chicago, 23+ hours. I'm a first timer, but Jenny grew up in Montrose, and attended a show almost 30 years ago with her mom.

I'm bringing my mandolin for sure and possibly a guitar and/or dobro. But most likely just the mando, for space purposes. Mandolin skill level a solid 'medium'. But I can chop along.

While we're all here chatting, I had a couple questions as we begin to pack: What (if anything) is available for purchase at Mary E.? Like Ice, water, etc? Ice being the biggie For, you know... beer.

How late do the shuttles run? I would assume there are plenty of others, like us, who plan to attend NightGrass shows. So I'm assuming we'll be able to get back to Mary E afterwards?

Thanks!
Pat

Hello again,  Wave
to answer pburk, Yes there is ice available twice a day for sale. Last year it was a couple of bucks a bag. Water is free. But it is just a big tank that gets filled by the ice people. It is there and it is free. Other that that there really isn't anything out there.

Yes the buses run after night grass. They usually run until 2:30 or so. They really try to get everyone back to the campground. It is WAY to cold to be left in town overnight.

My name is Misty and I will be camping with my friend Lisa. It is our 1st TBF!!!We are from Arkansas! It is just a short little 17 hour hop for us, so we are planning to leave super early Sunday morning. 10 days people!!!! We are bringing solar shower/tent. What is the protocol for this??? Also I am bringing a portable dollar generator for phones and such... is this what everyone else is doing for a little bit of electricity?

I am getting more and more excited as the days come closer!!! Also any tips for camping in Mary E. would be super helpful!!!

Skyrunner, do you know how many camping passes are issued for Mary E? Just curious as to what type of numbers to expect in the campground.

There is usually around 350 - 400 people. The max is 500 from what I remember. It may seem like allot of people. But Mary E. is really spread out so it doesn't get as crowded as all the other campgrounds.

I'm staying! I'm travelling from my home on the Isle of Skye in Scotland.  So look for the Saltire flying from my tent and you'll find me. See you soon!
