The Gathering 2012 At the end of the universe

Packing list

You need

  • The check in proof. We say this every year, and every year hundreds of people forget their check in proof. Do not leave home without it or you may end up spending this Easter on the streets of Hamar. A mighty cold pleasure we might add. Don't forget to complete the pre check in, either.
  • Valid identification (picture ID, driver’s license, ATM-card).
  • A consent form from your parents if you are under 16 years old (the consent form will ble available soon).
  • Your beloved computer.
  • A minimum 10 meter TP (Twisted Pair) network cable.
  • Power cable, sound cables, monitor cable, power pad.
  • A mouse and, for those who can't live without it, a mouse pad.
  • Headphones.
  • Network card that supports TP.
  • Tooth brush, shaving equipment, soap and deodorant.
  • Towels, to bring two is advised, Drying off with your t-shirt is useless.
  • Clean clothes, two or three sets.
  • Socks in all shapes and colors, especially the warm ones as the concrete floor gets cold
  • A bag or two to have the dirty laundry in.
  • Food. We recommend that you buy some sliced bread + things to have on it. Food will be sold at the party, but living on those torched lumps of meat might be a bit expensive in the long run.
  • Stuff to drink! We highly recommend water - it's good for you!
  • An Easter-egg filled with your favorite sweets. It's a holiday, and sugar is of the essence.
  • Money, money and more money! This is very important! And no, we will not lend you any.
  • Cell phone, so you can call your mom every time you feel a bit homesick.
  • Sleeping bag, mattress, pillow.
  • Floppy disks and/or a USB memory stick.
  • Pen and paper.
  • A camera, because no one will believe you when you say that you've been to the second largest computer party in the world!
  • Magazines/books. Nice to have on the journey to and from Vikingskipet.
  • Sanitary pads and tampons (if you are female)
  • Condoms/birth control. However, we do not recommend carnal pleasures in public areas as they are very crowded.
  • A paper/plastic bag or two for trash. We like it nice and clean. :)
  • Any and all medication you may need during the party. You should also carry any necessary medical documentation on you at all times.
  • Duct tape, shouldn't need an explanation but if you must; it's really usefull to shield your wrists from the table and thus preventing your wrists from bruises (NB. Do not use it on other people!)

  • Speakers suitable for The Who concerts. Don't worry - we'll bring the noise :)
