Several great tips; some of you have done this before!!
I did not read all 24 pages of this , so some might be a repeat:
Several cases of water.
spare can of monkey butt
old fashioned coffee pot
COFFEE
freeze any food that you can
I used the mosquito propane cookers last year. will add a 2 burner stove this year.
Wok - will cook anything
Bacon.
several small LED lights. zip tie one light in top of tent
a GOOD rain poncho. NOT the cheap 99 cent ones. DAMHIKT
Walmart sells a 6 gal water jug for about 10 bucks.
To recharge your cell phone: There are rope lights lining some of the side roads. the lights have a male plug on one end and female on the other. the Last light rope has an available plug. (put phone in a plastic bag and all is good)
There is an outlet at the convenience store behind the microwave. There was a taper at the 'shroom soundboard. He had extra space on his power strip, and there are outlets above the light boxes, by the road, at the 'shroom.
RE freezing camelbacks: Do NOT fill full. do NOT have water in the tube or the connector when you freeze it. The ice will break the hose connector. DAMHIKT

Speaking if freezing stuff, I freeze everything I can. But the best thing I do is take Tupperware containers and make blocks of ice. I start a week prior and then when a block is frozen I put it n a freezer bag. Fill and repeat. By the time to go, I have a bunch of perfect square blocks of ice that last at least three days. Then when done, I have containers to use for stuff around camp.

I freeze old milk jugs and you can cut them open to save space or use for cleaning water later.

I also get a small block of dry ice for each cooler and put it at the bottom... it will help keep your ice and frozen stuff super cold, just keep cooler in shade and closed and you can make it 4 or 5 days or so as long as you prefreeze alll your meats

I tip the bathroom attendents that take care of the showers and shitters. And I alway's come back and tip the food venors if its good, say thanks again. The coffee guy gets my money every morning, note to self keep food tickets check. But the trick is to be aware of whats around you and greet the staff with a smile because they make this all happen. thank you.

Cash, stash, tickets is the mantra.

Private potty: Take a good grade of scoopable cat liter. NO! DO NOT SCOOP IT! It just clumps and a good grade does a good job on odor. Much cheaper than the specially designed gel packs or whatever.

Food: We always cook up a batch of veggie pasta at home and store it in gallon zip lock inside an appropriate size tupperware. Really easy to reheat. Also, I always roast some potatoes at home, store the same way and break those out for breakfast. A little olive oil in a non-stick and those fry up nice and tasty. We get the milk carton eggs like Egg Beaters (little trademark symbol here) and mix into the heated eggs for a scramble.

Develop your own camping list. Start with a good one like has been posted in this thread and then customize it to suit your camping needs. We take one and when something pops up we add it to the list and then incorporate it, or not, into the
master list at a later date.

If they let you bring it in stuff your camleback full of ice at the start of the day and then add water once inside. If you're at a giant fest and don't make it back to camp often then hit a vedor up for just ice and replenish. Hydration is the key to success but ice is the key to luxurius success.

Get a good hammock and learn to sleep in it.

Don't get drunk and lose your backpack. (that one is pretty specifically aimed at me.)

Make friends with your neighbors as soon as possible.

Share what you got. Within reason.

Feeding scruffy looking kids breakfast can pay off with unexpected rewards.

Always lend a hand setting up a strangers tent/ez-up/etc. They won't be a stranger long.

Wagan Power Dome EX 400-Watt Jump Starter with Built-In Air Compressor http://www.amazon.com/Wagan-400-Watt-Starter-Built-In-Compressor/dp/B000WJEPCI or something similar.

Don't let minor bulls*#t interfere with your fun.

Always have a spare lighter.

Zip locks for phone, wallet, camera ect in case of rain as has been mentioned.

Serously, don't get drunk and lose your backpack.
