So i got in on Thursday to settle where i was staying and go to the campgrounds to take pictures. i was a little excited because in all the years of going to the finest of festivals (since 99), i have only seen the tents from the other side of the fence. A mix up in getting keys to a relations' place in Palm Springs meant i had to go to the Greyhound Bus Station in Indio to wait for them to arrive. While waiting i saw some people arriving for Coachella. Not a bad way to arrive since it's only a few miles from the Polo Fields. The bus with the keys was running really late so i drove over to see what it was looking like with some good sun light. After that got some coffee (been up for 2 days at that point...Randy has a tweaker theory, i attribute it to getting ready, werk, and "first day of school" excitement), got the keys and then found out a little about what so many of you have been saying is so fun and a definite necessity for the "Coachella Experience"...my visit has caused jealousy. Anyway, pictures:
The fun way to find your car.
Any of your stuff in there?
Never far from your junk.
wish this was longer, but had to shut it down so campers could take the spot the camera was on.
Is it suprefan or is it thelastgreatman? So confused.
Does the baked potato style keep it that much cooler? i wanna know.
Made a little detour into the Polo fields. When i was here, someone was sound checking "Creep"...hopefully you heard it too.
They just kept coming.
kinda looks like Bosco.
and still they come. i heard about 12,000 camped last year. Wonder what this year's number is?
Cleanliness leads to good relations with the neighbors
That's what they look like.
Not really from Sasquatch country, just where she was standing at the time.
No pictures beyond 10:30 because i had to get ready for Day 1. Pictures coming soon (hopefully in the next week)
Edit in much later:
