The Centeroo Bag

Most people use a backpack or CamelBack that has storage space. I use my daughter's backpack from kindergarten. Here's what goes into it:

  • SUNSCREEN. Just wear it. Be smart.
  • Sunnies, know, some form of eye protection from that searing Tennessee sun.
  • Camera (hopefully you remembered fresh batteries and a memory chip).
  • Water Bottle (to refill throughout the day).
  • Small snacks like trail mix, dried fruit and protein bars are good options.
  • Purell keychain attached to a zipper for quick/easy access.
  • Anti-bacterial wet wipes (when a quick squirt of Purell doesn't feel like enough).
  • Roll of toilet paper or Cottonelle flushable wipes.
  • Bandana (for wiping or wearing over your mouth cowboy style if it's dusty).
  • Small notepad and pen (you never know what you'll want to write down or whose contact info you'll want to get).
  • Earplugs
  • Bug spray
  • Travel versions of Goldbond powder or body glide. Stop the chafe!
  • Small blanket or sarong for sitting.
  • Headlamp and/or flashlight for proper (and most sanitary) port-o-John navigation at night.
  • Charged cell phone. Not everyone wants to bring their phone into Centeroo and that's fine but it sure is handy if you have the Bonnaroo App on your phone and can instantly view schedules, maps and food and retail listings! Plus, when your friend is at the Which stage and you're near the arch it might be good to figure out how to meet in the middle.

Did I forget something? Let me know in the comments!
