I personally wouldn’t be able to handle the stress of not being sure.  But as long as you are comfortable with it and you have a back up plan if you DON’T get a site.. then go for it.

I agree with Moose.  Have a back-up just in case!

Could you get some teenagers (family friends) to stake it out in the morning and help get things ready?  It might be worth paying them to “babysit” the spot for you.  If you don’t put a plan like that in place, it would be a gamble. Is it first-come, first-serve on a daily basis or overnight to the next day?  It could be scary business!

Hmmm, that would totally stress me out! I don’t know if I could handle not knowing whether or not we’d get the spot – what would you do if you weren’t able to get it? 

Are you planning on decorating at all? If so, how/when would you put them up? Personally, I just feel like the logistics of it all would make it very stressful!
