    Hiiiii I'm Aussie, flying solo and kinda badly/unofficially trying to organize the renting of a van or 2 from LA on Thursday to Coachella. Let me know if you wanna be in on it.

    What part of Aus are you coming from??

    A couple of mates and I are taking advantage of the cheap flights and coming from little A-Town - we were thinking of catching the Greyhound to Indio - is the train a better idea?

    there is no train from Los Angeles to Indio, CA.... You can get to Palm Springs and then take a bus....

    R.I.P Coachella Express

    I'm coming from Melbourne to California for Coachella specifically and will be going solo. I'm staying on Venice beach for a few days before the festival and want to head in on the Thursday. Would be keen to get in on a carpool if there is space.

    Im from Sydney. Im catching the Greyhound out from San Diego and back to LA solo meeting mates along the way. Im thinking of getting a t-shirt printed asking for a "lift to LA on the monday" coz I hate the Greyhound. Be warned my fellow Aussies, Greyhound is USA is a sketchy experience, unlike our Greyhounds. When i've had to take it in the past my friend and I preferred to call it the ghetto express. It made for great stories now, but at the time it was frickin scary. However I expect the buses to Coachella and return will be full of fellow Coachella cruisaders!! I would hire a car but I am sooo retarded when it comes to driving on the other side of the road!
    Its gonna be good, just hope my dam tickets arrive here before I leave!!

    I'm from Sydney as well.

    I'm going with a group of 5 mates. We are hiring a Dodge Caravan van and driving from San Fran to LA and then to Coachella.

    Don;t have any spare spots unfortunately but really looking forward to it!

    it's not bad. you will meet an interesting group of people. it's a strange crowd riding the greyhound buses in the US. i wouldn't say it is unsafe or anything though.
    This ain't no middle of the mall shit.

    The problem with the greyhound in the past is having a booked time doesn't really count for much if it's a busy day. It didn't hit me when I went last as I left on the sunday but it bit my friends who were leaving on the monday - 9am schedule departure was 8pm that night as that was where they were placed in the queue when they arrived.

    Isn't the Greyhound known as the prison express?

    I rode a greyhound from SF to Lake Tahoe last year and this skinhead dude on the bus told me that when you leave state prison you are given a free greyhound ticket as you are unable to fly as a 'convicted felon'. He was probably just tryna scare me but the common conversation starter on that bus was 'what were you in for?' It was great eavesdropping entertainment but its probably luck if you get ta small time fellon next to you or the skinhead with a swaztika tattooed on his throat.
    Who is Arcadia Fires anyway?

    Your best bet is the carpool area....

    The people there are awesome.....I read about so many people that went way out of their way to pick people up.

    It's a good group

    There are more Aussie's at Coachella than any other country outside the USA.

    Last....either camp at Coachella or buy a hotel close by...NOT PALM SPRINGS...way too far.
    Just when I think you couldn't possibly be any dumber, you go and do something like this…and totally redeem yourself!
