go to your local army surplus, pick up a pair of their cargo shorts, or even cargo pants and cut em off. they're water proof, just in case it rains and/or you spill your beer on them. they are the only thing i wear at festivals, well, besides band shirts. and, yeah, bandannas are a must. keeps the sweat off the brow, good for a quick wipe, and can be used to cover your face in case of a dust storm or a stinky portapoti.
This year's wardrobe: -2 pairs of boxers per day. I hate the feeling of sweaty boxers, so I'm going to change around dinner this year if my schedule permits. -Same thing with socks -4 white v-necks -Two pairs of really light Ultimate Frisbee shorts -Sanuks that I will be gracing my feet with soon -Hat with my Ultimate Frisbee team's logo on it -Bandanas -Big sunglasses
How do those sportkilts fare in hot weather? It's already hit 90 a couple of times here in middle tn, I'm fairly sure the middle of june is gonna approach brutal. I'm a little torn between ordering a sportkilt or a utilikilt. Utili's are rugged as hell, but you can't get 'em in plaid.
Little secret. Waterproof low cut hiking boots. They are hot but you can cruise past the mass migrations of sandle wearers that are avioding the mud. There will be mud. Cruising straight through is the only way for me. Shorts, bandana shades and boots, I may look like aa person about to rob a quickie mart but I made it through roo with a stress fracture in my foot, passing people all weekend. I always camp in pod one which is way out in bfe. Last year I had a pedometer on me, we ended up walking bout forty miles before we left on monday!
1 for hiking boots. I really don't see how so many people bring just flip-flops or crocks. Last year I sported a over-the-ankle waterproof hiking boot and it was probably the best decision I made as far as packing(I do still pack a pair of crocks and padded sandles). Not once did I have to worry about getting gravel in my shoe, mud, horse poo, or anything else. I did catch a lot of crap from friends, but I was the only one who didn't have to bother with blisters or cuts. Another little trick I use is to wear a pair of wool socks over cotton socks. Sounds crazy in 90 degree heat i know but it will soak the sweat away from your foot and the first pair of socks. Dry feet are happy feet. The added padding is very comfortable too. I had an unreal amount of extra spring in my step the whole time last year and it did help conserve a lot of energy. I learned this trick while working at a Boy Scout Summer camp outside Nashville, TN. I seriously have never had any foot complaints while wearing boots with wool socks for 7 weeks in the Tennessee heat. "I'm an Eagle Scout, my brain is like a compass, trust me"
chacos.. going on my fourth year with the same pair. American Apparel tri-blend t's, super soft and comfortable... Flat front, light, thin shorts and random t's I've picked up throughout the year and deemed Bonna-worthy ;D

wore a kilt to roo for the first time last year, best decision i ever made. didn't wear it til sunday for dropkick murphys, which is a shame. if i had it on the first day, it would have been the only thing i wore all weekend...
Under armor is great for chafing prevention or if you develop chaffing under armor (or I guess any spandex, I have only used UA) helps prevent more chafing and allows for healing. Body glide Rocks!!!
I like to wear long pieces of free flowing material, like an African kaftan. I mean they are big African dresses from Ross(cost <$20). I know they are women dresses, but they are light weight, free flowing, non constrictive and cool colors. I need to find a pic to post.
yeah I didn't get the boxer brief until recently. I bought a pack and they have the comfort of boxers without the chafing. I'm thinking this will help me on the farm and yeah I don't quite know about stashing things near balls.
