So... this was sparked by the 'camping by herself' thread that many many people replied to saying that they're in the situation.
By the way - you can only be in the club if you meet the following requirements:

Will be camping in ON-SITE camping
Aren't camping with ANYONE ELSE
Respect others' privacy
Want to make friends!


So who's in?!

EDIT: We're organizing one area for all of us to camp in, so your membership now includes camping in a common area with solo campers.

This is my third Coachella, did camping with my lady last year, this time around i'm solo. I will be solo camping and have respect and like to make friends.

Or as they say, plays well with others. I'm all for meetups and hangin out.

I was going to use the "flag" identifying method too. The signs I'm planning read "Need a ride to Coachella? Come on down!"

aaawwesome! sounds like fun

tiffdud41
02-11-2007, 08:09 PM
I'm on my own. Looking to have somebody to hang out with, so this sounds like a good idea.

I'm bringing a canopy/gazebo thingy, so I'll have shade in the morning!
Now who wants to be my friend? hehe

trowa888
02-11-2007, 08:21 PM
I'm thinking about not bringing a tent.... is it too buggy outside for that?

tiffdud41
02-11-2007, 08:32 PM
I don't think it's too buggy, but it's nice to have some sort of privacy (I think)

dontfeedthebird
02-11-2007, 08:33 PM
I'm down for kickin' it under the canopy. I'll bring cups!

Screwdrivers maybe.

Do they even sell one-"man" tents??

We're gonna need more cups.

faxman75
02-11-2007, 09:29 PM
So if we do this we should try to coordinate getting there near the same times and stuff. Maybe if we all buy these shirts we can identify eachother and then be able to camp near eachother as well. My tent is supposedly a four person but i would say it fits two comfortably.

trowa888
02-11-2007, 09:35 PM
lol i think there must be different ways to all meet up... i dont wanna spend more money on shirts than i have to.. i'm gonna have my phone with me for sure, i dunno about you guys.. plus i'm pretty sure i'll have something posted at my tent/on my person that says my username on it :P

trowa888
02-11-2007, 09:35 PM
We're gonna need more cups.

i can bring more cups... ;)

tiffdud41
02-11-2007, 09:36 PM
or, whoever's getting there first can say that them and their 20 friends are all camping together, give 'em "the list" and then the coachella people can direct them to the "spot"

tiffdud41
02-11-2007, 09:36 PM
but, that shirt is awsome....I read that thread and I want one

dontfeedthebird
02-11-2007, 09:38 PM
Tiff is smart.

Also, my job is to bring the cups. You bring the OJ.

trowa888
02-11-2007, 09:39 PM
that works too, i think... not sure if the campy people are really gonna like that, but i'm pretty sure if someone explains, they'd consider it?

tiffdud41
02-11-2007, 09:39 PM
<--canopy bringer

you guys can set it up for us

trowa888
02-11-2007, 09:39 PM
aha... OJ it is.. can i bring the concentrated kind?.. or tang, even.. tang is even easier to pack :P

tiffdud41
02-11-2007, 09:39 PM

now i'm wondering if they even still -make- tang..

dontfeedthebird
02-11-2007, 09:45 PM
Tang is like ghetto screwdrivers. Or maybe astronaut screwdrivers. And that might actually be neat.

trowa888

i think we'd better advertise them as astronaut screwdrivers if we want any takers... but actually... just mixing tang into vodka sounds awesome.. without all the extra water, right?

Arie, we'll need your physical address and your home phone number to join. You'll also be required to drink our astronaut koolaid.

Why don't make our signs yellow with black print? And perch them on twenty foot poles so they'll be visible to everyone?

tiffdud41

I'll bring my giant battery powered strobe light, too. that should help somewhat at night

i don't think the 20-foot poles will fit in my bag..

No, I was mid-sentence and realized that's a dumb question to ask PF. Because if it were that easy to camp next to your friends, everyone else would do it too.

As for information, I just need first names and cell number. And hell, I won't even need those until April.

I'm a Coachella newbie and (as far as I know at this moment) I'll be going and camping solo. This poses a problem considering I have a 5 person tent with not enough bodies to fill it. So I'm throwing it down... If anyone wants to throw caution to the wind and share my space, lemme know. I'm an easy-going fella from Austin.

Havocquarm
02-12-2007, 07:37 AM
I'm also more than likely roadtripping and camping solo (the person that wants to go is a tweening stoner, so I am 75% sure I will end up alone) I would be down with camping with a bunch of other solo people.

One of my friends only wanted to go on Sunday (and it sold out, heh). Another is simply a cheap bastard; says he doesn't have money, but he actually has a steady paycheck while I currently live off of my savings. And a third wanted to go so badly, he pleaded to get his R&R dates changed [he's in IraK], but they wouldn't budge. So he's out -- but really the closest to going, even though he's in the midst of another country's civil war.

Hey sorry about the cocktail mix up (mmm cocktail mixer).
here´s the new tag:

http://i70.photobucket.com/albums/i103/Vicorintian/tag.jpg

do i need to add anything else?

BTW i guess i am driving AND Flying to Coachella. I fly from El Salvador to LAX and then i am planning to rent a car and drive to the site. I might make a pit stop at my aunt´s house in Santa Ana first though.

I am going by myself because very few of my friends like this kinda music and those that do are either broke or dont have their US. Visas.

my friends think its cool for me to go, camping is cheap after all and it looks like we´ll have a good time. i guess my parents do worry a bit but they are allright.

vicorintian
02-13-2007, 06:20 AM
well... all of my friends -want- to go but i'm the only one crazy enough to spend the money without any kind of a 'plan' (yet)... my plan was "buy the ticket, and then i'll sure as hell make a plan"
