    Don't expect to do half the things you think you're gonna do - you'll meet to many people.

    Don't eat the sushi.

    Don't break your diet if you have one.

    It is hard to "wing it" when you are a control freak with an OCD, believe me.....

    If you're traveling from far or from a cold place, I really suggest coming early and spending some time on the beach. Lots of people stayed in Hollywood Beach before the cruise last year, and that's where we had the beach party... might change, though. Who knows.

    If you're doing a lot of pre-partying, try to just grab cabs with other people. It's not really a thing you can organize a lot, but there's usually people going your way to something.

    The more the merrier... I had a four-person room, we had to share beds a little but it was like having a bunch of automatic friends. I spent a lot of time hanging out with my roommies.

    Pace yourself... bands went from 10am to 6am. I found that I missed some bands because I just knew I needed a nap if I wanted to make it to something more interesting. This goes for drinking, too. Also, if you pass out, you WILL photos of people fucking with you uploaded to FB. Not drawing on faces but just people putting their ass next to your face or doing horns or whatever.

    Take the day off after you arrive home. Seriously. Recovery took me about a week because I just flew home and went straight back to work the next day.

    Try not to book flights with connections in Northeastern cities because they're clusterfucks anyway and plus you always know some Nor'easter is probably gonna come through. I had my flight re-routed on me.

    Ft Lauderdale doesn't have phone charging stations at their airport. Every last one was taken up by stranded people, so I charged mine in the bathroom. Make sure you're fully charged for the morning you leave.

    Control freak asks for advice. Well there's always a first time!

    But seriously, try and room with a veteran, see if there's anyone from your neck of the woods going.

    Everybody generally stays at the same hotels, there's 3000 metalheads in Miami, just look for someone wearing a black t-shirt.
