    Default Coachella 2008, Thursday Camping Pictures

    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.




















    Kareokee superstars


































    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:

    Of course if you liked that, other picture threads:

    Thanks for the pix. I didn't take one of my tent but you did! Mine is the green one to the back left of the baked potato tent.

    Did you talk to the person sleeping in there? Did it help keep it cooler?

    suffacated, the solo @ the polo group was in the back corner in your picture, then (down the same rows) the "quiet please" group, and then the party all weekend group at the end of those rows. Probably about 150-200 people from the board total?

    always love someone spotting someone they know. as always, pm me your email if you want a hi res copy.

    i edited in the time lapse clip of the girls setting up their tent. It's only 12 seconds, but security made me move so other people could use the space i was in.

    the baked potato tent apparently worked for him. he slept in very long into the day, whereas the rest of us were woken up by the sun around 7.

    It's kinda funny how often I consider heading to Indio and setting up a tent. It might get a bit lonely out there but damn there aren't too many places on earth that are more fun to be at.

    I don't know if looking at these pics brings more happiness or torture to me. They always put a smile on my face, but it's not even January, and it's below zero in Minnesota. It's so far away lol!

    Exactly! Those pictures are amazing and you pretty much captured the Campchella vibe.

    What kind of camera do you use?

    That night i was using 2 cameras, Canon 40D and G9. Dani gets the big credit for asking me to get there for the sole purpose of trying to get the vibe.
