IN past years, I have showed up on Tuesday afternoon and worked fully through the remainder of that day and all day on Wednesday; basically sun up to sun down. Some evening flying does usually take place Wednesday evening to unwind but only after we have all helped each other out to complete our tasks.
That said, I am planning to arrive Wednesday morning this year and again, fully expect to work all day before I even think about unpacking the car and making camp.
From Andre's response and previous communications, it is acceptable to arrive early, provided that you give him advance notice as well as fully intending to help out with the event setup. There have been years (like 2017) where not all things have been fully setup due to weather or other complications so even showers may be unavailable. Just do not expect to be catered to, or to cater to the hosts and those who will be arriving for only the event. It is a service opportunity that is rewarding just by participating.
I plan to show up early with one of my friends, both wanting to volunteer for the set up of the event. I was already planning on bringing my own food ( Can two teenagers live off of chips, hot dogs, burgers, water and pop tarts for a week?)
