    Default Semi-stupid camping parking question

    OK, I know how to get to Coachella, but I've never camped before. And last year, some guy waved me past the regular parking entrance for some reason...thought there was alternate parking, but I wound up at Camping parking, who had to turn me around, and then the first guy was mad I was coming from the other direction and...whatever. Anyway, I know where camping parking is.

    BUT...on the Travel Info/Directions page, it says...

    " Directions to the main festival parking are below. Parking is free. No overnight parking is allowed. If you are camping onsite, please use the directions on the onsite tent camping page."

    So then you go to the camping page, and read and read and scroll and scroll and finally come to this...

    "Where is campsite parking?

    Campsite parking is free and adjacent to the campgrounds. Directions/details as stated above. "

    ???

    So...what's this big secret way in we're supposed to be using?

    Just drive there thursday night or whatever, and you'll be pointed in the right direction.

    I was really more trying to point out a rather large flaw in the webpage. I just thought it was odd since they SPECIFICALLY say "Don't go this way if you're camping!"

    And the way I would go is the way they say not to. So, ya know, I thought there might be a good reason, and it might be nice to know. My guess would be go down to 52nd and come back up, but maybe that's a horrible idea for some reason.

    Anyway, thanks as usual for the awesome help. They don't call you the encyclopedia for nothing!

    Or you know, drive there thursday night and follow the signs and screens that litter the roads all around the venue (whether you're on Madison, Monroe, 52, Washington or whatever), all of which point you in the right direction. But if you can think of something that is better than that, then uh, more power to you.

    I think the general parking lot is closed thursday night. so you can only possibly end up at camping parking.

    JEBUS TAPDANCING CRISPS!

    I'm not worried about getting lost. Telling me to follow the signs isn't contributing anything useful. I know how to fucking get there.

    Doesn't anyone but me and Bud think it's odd that the website SPECIFICALLY tells campers not to follow the directions? Particularly when the directions aren't really directions at all? They're pretty much "Get off one one of these 3 roads and follow the signs."

    If there's a more efficent way to get there (perhaps after a Saturday morning jaunt to breakfast), I'd like to know. If there's not, THEN WHY ARE THEY TELLING PEOPLE NOT TO FOLLOW THE SIGNS?

    It's two SEPARATE fuck-ups on the website. One says "Go to this page", one says "see directions above." They had SOMETHING in mind.

    Fuck it, go follow your signs. I'm going to come in on 56th thru La Quinta or something. Even if it's longer I won't be idling between you unhelpful sheep.
