everytime someone leaves their tent, it vanishes. after a few hours there are no tents at all. easy clean up.

I thought somebody stole my tent last year, but it was just a bad combination of darkness and being stoned.

If you're bringing something really expensive, go ahead and e-mail me before you go. We can meet up, and I'll watch your tent for you while you're out watching bands and whatnot. I like to pay hundreds of dollars to go to concerts, and then just hang around at the campsite all day.

This thread is hi-larious.

Tent thieves.

LOL @ the guy w/ the truck. I can just see him watching the tents with binoculars and then thieving each one as people clear out of them.

I confess. I'm the tent thief. That's actually a picture of my back yard after I got home from Coachella.

Christina has a good question. Has anyone had anything stolen from their tent excluding the half an ounce of bud you knew was there when you got back to your tent the night before?

All i'm saying is instead of using your fore knowledge of the event to make weak attempts to make someones question sound like a stupid one, be a doll and offer someone the answeres there lookin for, otherwise f-off for a burger and dont bother saying anything.

another lesson i was taught, wich i stand by to this day (obv)
their is no such thing as a "stupid/dumb question"

and my tent is the one that says bad mother fucker on it

I had no problems with my tent last year. The only thing that happened was someone else walked in on us when we were sleeping. This year I'm probably going to get a lock to put on it and obviously you don't want to keep anything of value in your tent. But you should be fine, no worries.

Just don't leave any valuable stuff in there, we had just one dude during the feast last year carry our stuff about when we weren't at the tent.

What feast? I was so hungry - I hope I don't miss it this year.
