We left Friday last year (against my better judgement) and it was a hassle. We were in GA, thank god we were on the outskirts or we would have been SOL (which once again, I wouldn't of had a problem with). My then girlfriend wanted a shower and "real food". It wasn't too bad getting out, but then again we were on the outskirts. The thing is getting back in. By Friday, the gates are pretty open. We were only in a line of about 4 cars to get back in. All of out stuff except for coolers were still at camp, the back of my car was completely empty. That didn't stop the good ole po-po from crawling all around the inside of my car, looking everywhere for anything. More rigorous search for sure on re-entry. It wasn't like when we came in (they just opened out coolers, took a quick look around and let us on our way). They went in everything, we were standing outside of the car for at least a good 15-20 minutes. Don't know if this helps but that's my experience.
It may have been a special case for us, but back in 2010, we arrived on thursday, and knew we would have to leave later that day for graduation (5 hour drive on top of that), but they still let us leave and come back in. No problems, they tore through our stuff making sure we didn't bring anything against the rules back inside, that's about it though, so i wouldn't think it would be too much of a problem.
