    I seen on the OK DDAY facebook page it is rumored if we get 1000 pre registers we will get air in the field back! I really hope we do. Granted this is my first dday but it does seem quite meticulous to go back and forth to camp.

    I honestly have no idea. One thing they did say is if we don't have air in the dead zones, they'll have shuttles going through the dead zones every 5-7 minutes taking players back to camp for air and then driving them back to the field wherever our command staff wants us. So it wouldn't be as bad but I really hope we get it in the dead zones.

    No prob. And as for your packing I would just bring your normal camping load and paintball gear. You probably already saw but this is a compressed air only event so if you don't have an HPA tank, You need to get one.

    Greeting Matt,

    As for a supplies list. Here are some things I recommend:

    Standard camping and Paintball load out
    At least 1 extra tarp if possible big enough to cover your whole tent. Most tents do not hold up to really heavy rains. The rain ends up wick'ing though the rain-fly.
    Upgrade your tent spikes. Do not use the standard tent stakes that come with tents. They will bend because of the amount of rocks in the ground at the campsite
    Bug spray- the 1st ID treats the 1st ID camping area to chase of the bugs and ticks off but when you go to play the mini games and such you will want to protect yourself from ticks and such
    Lots of drinking water. I suggest both individual drinking bottles and gallon containers. Use the individual bottles when just walking or sitting around camp and then the gallon jugs for filling your hydration pack.
    Plenty of snacking food. If it is hot this year you probably will not feel much like eating meals but you need to keep your body in balance so pack good snacking food and easy light meals

    Welcome to the 1ID Matt. If you have a cot you may want to pack it if you have room the ground will be a little rockier than in Ole Miss.

    So this was brought up to me, by my friends parent, is it true that it is illegal for minors to camp without a parent?

    No it is not, but what I will need is a medical consent form that will allow me to take you to the hospital and in a worse case scenario make a medical decision if I can not get ahold of your parents. Your parents will also have to make sure to print and sign the field waiver for you. If you parents have any questions let me know and we can arrange to have a phone call to discuss any issues.

    Packing List

    Welcome to the 1st ID!

    This was posted many moons ago, and I happen to still check it every year before I come. This is WAY too much stuff, really, but it is a good guidepost to make sure you don't forget the important stuff like Camelback and sunscreen. Hope it helps.
