It's been a very long time, but I once attended Lilies from far 
out-of-kingdom...  I can share a few things that people did that made 
the trip much easier.

1. I'd decided, foolishly, to ship my tent in advance.  People were kind 
enough to accept the shipment to their homes, and even transported my 
stuff to the site.  (I'm still grateful to the people of B3R.)  I was 
able to ship stuff home myself, by driving it to town.  B3R also said 
"you can camp with us, we'll make room for you".

2. Without any pre-coordination, we were invited to be part of the food 
plan for Grimfells.  Partly because Pavel wouldn't let anyone be hungry, 
but also so we'd have someone to eat with.  It was really nice.  (Tasty 
too!)

3. People were ridiculously generous with sharing information in advance 
on how easy it would be to get there, how close by town is and what was 
available, and how easy things would be.

Separate from that, was the warm and loving welcome, the instant 
inclusion, and all the fun.  But when deciding to go, it was knowing 
that simple things like a place to sleep, and food to eat, and 
low-hassles for solving problems made it easy.
