I am coming from Seattle and this will be my first rally. I am really looking forward to it. I have seen comment about "BYOS" (Bring your own shade).
Being from Seattle nature provides us with about 8 months a year of overcast days so we do not get that much sun exposure. Not being from an area with lots of sun and high temps I know I will wilt and burn with out shade. I will break out the old SPF 1000 and that should take care of the burn and ware a hat to cover my balding head but little to no shade will kill me during the day.
How much of this event is indoors or in covered areas or is most of it outside. I will be camping in one of the shurpa villages and I do not want to spend much time in a tent except to sleep.
What are other experienced people doing about BYOS? and What do others do about dealing with the heat.
Also does anyone know when the official checkout is? Do we have to leave Sunday afternoon or can it be Monday before noon?
