    Talking Need a ride from Palm Springs, and some new friends haha

    So I am coming from Providence Rhode Island, and I am camping out. So far it is just me... my one friend who wants to go is still 50/50 on the money. So basically I will be alone. When I saw Bjork and a Rage reunion were happening at the same festival, i think a part of my brain short circuited. I immediately bought my ticket, and now I hafta worry about actually getting there.

    I will be on a rediculously tight budget, and would really love to get a ride from the airport (and hopefully back) so that I can still afford to hydrate and feed myself during the show.

    Also like I said I will be by myself. I won't know a friggin soul at this place, and im a tad shy at first. So to make some friends before hand would be pretty awesome. I have my camp ground ticket so Im sure ill be fine, but still its nice to know atleast one person before hand.

    actually saying palm springs was premature. its the obvious choice but its not set in stone.

    i havent done the flight yet, so i could arrive anywhere at whatever time is easiest for whoever wants to help my poor ass. id prefer getting there thursday to set up, but early friday is fine too

    there's a thread for loners...just search loners. we're going to try to get some people that are camping alone to camp near eachother so we can all be alone together...check it out. myabe somebody there can help you with a ride from whatever airport you'll be flying into.
    I don't have anything clever to say right now.

    Wow. Your story is exactly like mine.

    I am also coming..ALONE from 2500 miles away, to camp with 20,000+ people.

    But...IT'S GONNA BE AWESOME!! I know this.

    But...like you said, having some buddies beforehand would make the trip much better.

    i've mentioned in a few other threads that there is a city transit bus that runs right from the palm springs airport to indio, it drops you off about 3 miles from the festival grounds. it costs one whole dollar. its easy to hitch a ride from where it drops you off to the festival grounds, took me like 5 minutes last year and i didnt even have to put a thumb up. just talked to someone in the in and out burger (which is where the bus drops you off).
    its easy and its cheaper than any other method you're gonna find.
