I've done dry ice a majority of the years at roo and it has never ended poorly.
We have decent size coolers and we buy to big blocks of dry ice wrapped in thick plastic, we put some frozen water bottles down, then some ice, more drinks, water bottles, ice. Only once or twice have we not been able to access important drinks because they were frozen in one solid block.
By the time we need the stuff at the bottom it has thawed enough. We've never once had to buy ice and we have cold drinks and food till Sunday. We won't ever go back to ice.
The venting thing is just a precaution, to make sure nothing blows up. The fumes/gases/magic fog of doom coming off the dry ice can (in a tightly sealed cooler) build up and the pressure can make it explode. You also don't want to be locked up in a car with all that stuff, so roll down your window every now and then...
BUT don't let that scare you! We have a 9hr drive we stop roughly two or three times, I open the cooler each time just for a bit.
These precautions and warnings are really just to remind everyone that dry ice should be treated differently. It's serious business, just be smart and it's well worth it.
At various art festivals and flea markets where they're set up on concrete I've seen people get two foot lengths of 3inch PVC pipe and fill it with concrete with a hook at the top. You can tie the canopy to the hook and that sucker won't move. It's a lot easier to carry the pipes than cinder blocks.

Kacey Musgrave > John Fulbright > Black Praire > Sheepdogs(end) > Edward Sharpe (first half) > The National > Tom Petty
Might skip Edward Sharpe and try to get into the pit for the National. I really wish something other than Kendrick Lamar was on the What before The National. His set last year before Alabama Shakes was more than enough for me to last a lifetime.
Missing Matthew E. White and The Rubens really hurts, but I can't miss my girl Kacey.
The sound bleed from Swans is gonna be so bad for the folks wanting to see Sam Bush and Del McCoury.
I wasn't even thinking about that, Swans is going to interfere with everything going on at that time on Which, That, Troo, Sonic, Solar. haha. the loudest tent shows I heard from other last last year were SBTRKT, Puscifer and Danzig. Swans will definitely be louder than all of those.
Funny question (that I'm pretty sure I know the answer to): My lovely mother got these for a birthday present and paid with her card. It doesn't matter right? I can just register the wristbands in my name and it's fine?

See ya weekend 1 people! Coachella presale always stresses me out, but seeing as I could still go in and purchase passes at this moment, that stress seemed unnecessary this year. Our whole group was freaken out. But alas, I will see you all in the desert. Cheers. Now give me Underworld, Paul Tollett!
I would much rather it be sweltering and unbearably hot than have even a drop of rain. I can take heat, but rain and clouds dampen my mood like no other. I'm almost scared that I won't have fun if there's even a few hours of overcast sky. I hate rain.
Look on the bright side... A little rain kills the dust and brings out the mud people. I just hate it raining all night on my tent.

Sounds like going alone would still mean missing a big part of your Bonnaroo tradition- your friends. Sorry that worked out that way for you this year. Remeber the great times in years past. Get on the phone with them and watch Paul McCartney stream online or something. Hope you all can make it next year. I still dont know if I'm going. I have a pair of irons in the fire. If those dont work out I'll be in the same boat...
It may have been mentioned. There may already be 2 lbs of bulk sunflowers seeds enroute, destined to be put in small cloth pouches and mailed to everyone that would like to plant them, as well as send a bunch to LLL and Mike to give away in their travels? .
Now the question is 'Team Whoreshack' - what simple design, that can be stenciled or complex design that someone talented can make into a stencil, should be painted on each bag of seeds? Since this will be in bulk, the design needs to be something that can be painted relatively quickly. If you have thoughts/designs please post here.
Fawn is an amazing woman. I know everyone already knows this, but it cannot be said enough. That is the greatest idea ever. And so thoughtful.
