Safety tip:

Don't bring beef jerky. The hot weather & the packaged meat will give you the major shits!!

True story

But if you want to lose 20lbs. In 3 days, go for it.

Safety tip:

Bring flats of water & a kiddie pool to fill up with ice.

Great to cool off in & your beverages will be more refreshing.

Safety tip:

Wear pasties when wearing a candy bra. You will surely get munched on or someone will throw water on you.

When wearing the bottom part of the candy bikini, make sure you shaved in the critical areas.

Go vegetarian! Maybe a little seafood for some protein, but if you stick to the non-meat food items not only will you save money but your digestive system will surely thank you.

Tempeh, falafel, veggie rice, veggie wraps, smoothies etc...way more of what you need than a fuckin Burgeritto...yuck.

Non-food related...designate meeting places. Not general areas like by the food court but literally go to it and say if we get lost let's meet right HERE kind of thing. Especially necessary at night.

Drinkey McDrinkerstein
02-06-2009, 12:04 PM
if you're bringing a backpack pack of a roll of toilet paper

at one point last year i was regarded as a saint handing out T.P. to hot chicks freaking out at the disgusting manor of the porta pottys

it weas also nice to have when i was suffering from hay fever all day friday and my eyes were watering like nobodies business

Safety Tip:
Bring some type of flag or notice landmarks by your tent when camping.... its a lot easier to find your way to bed late at night after drinking/smoking

Suffacated
02-06-2009, 12:19 PM
When using the on site shiters, throw down a big wad of toilet paper first.
This absorbs the impact which lessons the chances of splash back.

don't drink before sundown. less heat=less dehydration.

FANNYPACK! i know it sounds lame, but it saves you some back pain if you carry your shit around your hips rather than in a big heavy purse (ladies) and it frees up your hands to dance around. plus, i got like rugburn or something on my shoulder from my purse strap. i'm in the process of looking for a fairly cute fannypack (if one exists...)

Not a safety tip but a noteworthy tip: the Monday morning after a majority of the campers have left, i dont know why, but people leave there nice coolers, chairs, new bottles and gallons of water, and i've even come across tents left over. I came back from a coachella trip one year with a car full of folded chairs, extra coolers, and stuff left by people who did not want it.

maybe those people come by plane, buy that stuff there, and can't take it back with them.

This picture just go me really excited. Not because I want to have steamy man secks with you, but because that is my favorite time of the day at Coachella. It's the time of day when all of your day's hard work is finally rewarded with some gorgeous weather. It's the part of the day when I transition from drinking water to diet soda. Oh, glorious diet soda! And most importantly, it's the time of day when the Sahara tent comes alive...I mean truly alive!

Safety Tip #47 -

Do NOT look directly into the Sahara.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v435/Fourthisto/Coachella 08/100_3563.jpg

But stare at the Sun all you want

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v435/Fourthisto/Coachella%2008/104_3703.jpg

And if you accidentally shrink yourself to the height of a chipmunk, know that its only the "cold medicine" talking and that it will pass.

If you wear contacts, bring an extra pair or your glasses. If you get something in your eye and need to take your contact out, you really shouldn't put it back in your eye, to much dust on the polo fields, and your hands will more than likely be very dirty. Save yourself the pain.

a mini flashlight/keychain light is worth having. I always seems to drop things when I'm in the sahara tent. it seems other people do, too. I've heard sooooooooo many stories of how people scored a bad of weed, coke, cigs, etc, from just looking on the ground. I always felt bad for the fools who lost their shit.

A flashlight keychain device is a good idea. Especially when wandering around the main stage at night. People tend to lay/down because they're tired at the end of the day and it's just real dangerous. I have one and it helps a lot at dark clubs/bars. Plus it's got a strobe light function in case you want to take the party to go!

some random dude at ULTRAFEST gave me a pair of 3d "like" glasses and it was AMAZING, especially with the david guetta concert going on. Would anyone know where I can get a pair of those at? I am hoping there is a vender at coachella that will be selling them so I can buy them thursday night before the festivities start on friday-sunday.

I went to Ultra too and got the same glasses... they were great! :) Unfortunately I must have left them in the hotel room, or I threw them into the pool because the parrot on Captain Morgan's shoulder told me too. Good times, but I wish I had those glasses back.

the norton simon museum in pasadena sells the for $1.25
they're not 3d but they are equally amazing (i'd imagine)
total mind fuck
they reflect off of light and make all these extra rainbow lights
i'm not sure how to explain.
i'll have a pair and i'll no doubt be making friends to try them.

Safety tip: avoid any of the "dangerous" meats at coachella ie. fish and chicken.

My brother and this girl hes friends with had chicken wraps and both got food poisoning. were puking their guts out during prince.

hit the Spicy Pie booth pepperoni is safe. or munch on vegetarian to avoid the risks associated with festival food.
