i just laid down about 7 tons of this stuff and made a rather big patio area. Problem is some of the area was pretty damp. Should I wait for it to be completely dry before I pack it or is it okay to do it now?

It's better to pack it when it's damp. Too dry and you don't get full compaction.

Essentially, if you were to pick up a handfull of it and squeeze it in your fist, then open your hand and have it stay together it is the right moisture content.
