Might cause me not to go. We'll have to see. I'll know better when I get back from DMF. I really think that $75 is absolutely ridiculous, and forcing people to join ADF is even worse.

Wow, that is totally obnoxious. The joining part, I mean. Is this some ploy to boost membership, or a ploy to keep non-members away? If Shawn ever answers my last email, I'll ask.
At most Brushwood events, there is an option to camp without attending the event. If not, they are usually listed as "no other camping." (I think I've only seen that for Starwood). Sometimes the camping fee does go up; at Sirius Rising I think it is $13.50 a day (to help cover other costs, like port-a-thingie rentals and printing costs).
Yeah, I'm waiting for him to answer my email, too.
For Wellspring, it appears that the cost of "just camping" is going to be $10/night.
