Got in line about midnight, made it to camp and had every thing set up in camp Landau by 2. Excellent spot, but they did short change us on room. I'm a 5 minute walk from centeroo. Long way from the bathrooms before centeroo opens

We arrived around 8am Thursday morning and ended up in "Camp Boba Fett" It was about 5 minutes to the centeroo gate. My first time there and I feel as if I was spoiled on how short of a distance it was.
Got within 15 miles of the farm on 24 east by 6.30pm wed. Semi flipped over in front of us. Sat for an hour before they got things moving again. Sent us waaay down 24 to get off on like exit 127 onto 41 I think, then back towards farm. They had us gOin I'm circles it seemed, ending up at east tollbooth around 10.30pm.
I think because of this goat-coitus, the car checks were abbreviated; tho the van in front of us was the random car that got the bad search. Whew.
Ended up in pod 9, prince akeem around 11pm. First roo. Thought I was lucky.

My group came in through the Bushy Branch (East) Toll Booth. We got in line around 3 am, waited for about 4.5 hours in line. After we got through security, we were placed pretty quickly in Pod 10 in Camp Randolph Duke, basically right under the Pod 10 balloon.
It was the furthest I've been from Centeroo in my 3 years, but there were some perks of being where we were. We were right next to the info and medic tent (which actually was a big help cause I turned my ankle late Friday Night and they were able to wrap it for me.)right next to a water fill up station, and the Porto Potties stayed relatively clean throughout the weekend. Definitely would like to be closer though, and will definitely come in via I-24 west toll booth next year.

Came I24 West, got in line at 118ish at 2AM Thurs and got in through the entrance at 112 around 6AM. Long wait but worth it. We were put in Jabba the Hut, the very corner closest to Centeroo. I think the walk between my kitchen and bedroom at home was longer than our walk to Centeroo. Dope. Until, of course, you have to pee in the middle of the night (morning?) and the portos are sooooooooooooo far.

This was probably my worst entry/parking experience I've ever encountered at Bonnaroo! It doesn't help that we got stuck behind the semi crash on 24 for approx 5 hours. Got around the crash and rerouted the long way (bushy branch) and sat in line for what seemed like forever. Finnally got through the east tollbooth at 5am, sat in a CRAZY hodge-podge of piled up cars and got put in pod 10 (Camp Rusty Griswald) at 6:00am after having our caravan split up twice (even after offering water and redbull to the volunteers) and then got split up into two different rows to camp. We were told we could put our stuff into the middle of the cars so we would be camping together only to have some man on a golf cart drive up, start screaming, and telling everyone to move to the opposite sides of the cars. Not my best Bonnaroo parking/camping experience : /

We approached the East Toll Booth via McMinnville Hwy, not from the interstate, got in line around 7:30pm Wed. We were Parked in Pod 2 a little after 8:30pm. Easy breezy! Hoofed it to TO and had camp set up by 9:45.

Due to major flight delays through Chicago we didn't make it until 330pm on Thursday and couldn't find much in TO - finally found a spot that was basically a drainage ditch and decided to take it. Was an awesome spot all weekend, until the rain on Sunday that it. Woke up, literally, with a river running through the tent on Monday morning - still feeling the effects of that night.

Got off I-24 E at exit 111 onto New Bushy Branch Rd around 3pm Wednesday. Gates opened at 3:30 took us about an hour to get through the West Tollbooth and another 45 minutes to get routed around to BFE Pod 1. Camp Dr. No. Had camp set up by 6:30. Packed us in like sardines.....most stressful part of the trip.....
