Hey,

So the person I thought I was going to get a ride with down to Indio for the fest flaked out on me. This isn't surprising since I've turned to the board every year for carpool help, and this year isn't any different.

If you're looking for a camping space instead of a ride, unfortunately I'm not camping this year, so I can't offer that. Putting in my fair share of cash for gas and maybe a few beers is something that I am offering, though.

I'm hoping to go down to the festival on Thursday morning and get back to Santa Cruz on Monday afternoon. If this seems like it'll work for your plans and you've got space for 1 more person in your carpool, I'm stoked.

Thanks.

I'm interested, what time were you figuring about heading down? I need to figure out where the hell my off-site people are going to be that day/night, and if it'd even work out with my own schedule to leave that early. Thanks for responding.

I'm leaving whenever I'm done closing payroll for that day. I'm thinking by noon, but it could be earlier. So far, it's only me driving down. I'll be meeting up with some friends and staying at a cheap hotel outside Palm Springs for the night. Feel free to crash there with us if you need to.
Just so you know, I am a cig smoker, so hope you can bear the smoke on the ride down. I'm not a murderer, but I plead the fifth on being a rapist.

If you drive by Monterey, I'll caravan with you and make faces all the way down. I'll also cut off any jackasses on the road for you.

Hahaha! I'm a jackass driver on I-5, so DON'T CUT ME OFF!
If we don't meet up for the caravan from Monterey, feel free to meet us at the hotel that night or morning to caravan into the campgrounds (if you're camping).

I prefer honkey. I know it's a bit outdated but it has such a nice ring to it.

I like it mix it up between cracker, honky, vanilla face and round eye.
In return, I get called Twinkie or banana.

Very nice, I especially like vanilla face although it doesn't roll off the tongue like the others.

If he does that, I'm going to start singing horribly to each song until he either turns it off, or I get fed up and leave him fending for himself in cow country of I-5. I'm not even going to stop. I'll just kick him out of the car doing 95 mph.

Too bad you're in SC. I'd be glad to hook you up, but I'm in the dirty cen. valley.

Free bump for the cause.

You're not missing much, she doesn't use her tongue very well. She just looks up at you, as if surprised.

If you can fit it into your schedule to leave on Wednesday instead, I'm leaving from Monterey.

Pre-pre game at the hotel!

Now I'm not sure if the Jello shots will even make it to the camp grounds. lol.

I still don't have a ride down. Unless anyone going down Wednesday can guarantee me a spot to stay at for the night, I can't do Wednesday.

Robin

Aw, damn. I just gave out my last open spot in my car.
If anything changes, I'll let you know.
I'm having some small issues with 2 of the peeps that asked for a ride.

I might not even be living here next year, and almost definitely not going to Coachella next year regardless of where I'm living.

That's a pity. Does your radio station have any affiliation with the university or is it your own thing?

PassiveTheory

It does but barely. The University holds the rights to the station and gave us a plot of land, but otherwise KZSC generates it's own revenue and pays for everything by itself.

EDIT: Quasi-bump.
