INFORMATION

THE VENUE

This event is being held on a private, 10-acre wooded property hidden away in New Port Richey facing a beautiful waterway perfect for kayaking and canoeing. Entering the property feels like entering a nature preserve, and we want to keep it that way, so this is a primitive, leave-no-trace event. That means that whatever you bring in, you must take out with you, including your trash.

 

It also means that we encourage you to embrace the principle of radical self-reliance, and bring absolutely everything you will need to make your stay a comfortable one. Porta-potties will be made available on-site, and there is an outdoor shower for communal use, but bringing your own solar or portable camping shower set-up is a good idea, along with adequate shelter, lighting, and food and water to last you the entire weekend.

 

GETTING THERE

The address is provided via email once you purchase a ticket. You may arrive as early as noon on Friday, December 9. Everyone is expected to be off the property by noon on Monday, December 11.

 

TICKETS & WRISTBANDS

Tickets are electronic. You may print them out or bring a digital copy. Your tickets will be exchanged for a wristband at the gate, which you must wear at all times.
