Welcome.  A few considerations before you decide to attend this event:

There are No Toilets – The solution is a trowel, some info (which I’ll pass out prior to the event) & hand sanitizer.It could RAIN! – Raingear is never a bad idea.There will be Some Hiking – Bring your boots or appropriate shoes.Bring: Water and Snacks, Eating Utensils & a Cup/Bowl, a Whistle (just in case you get lost in the forest, I’m not kidding), and a Notebook (maybe invest in a Write in the Rain), Pencil, and ‘Zines.If you plan to stay overnight then bring: A Tent or Tarp/Cord, Sleeping Bag, Flashlight, Dinner/Breakfast.I might be able to find you some piece of equipment if you don’t have it.
