    I'm interested. I'm theoretically a member of the unofficial group, but that's one of the ones where people aren't responding to PMs.

    Name: Robrt West
    Arriving: probably midnight-1 on thursday night
    Where I'm coming from: SF Bay area
    How long i'm staying: through Monday morning. (trying to be back in SF for a 6.30pm class Monday night)
    Something special to contribute to the group: unsure. hugs, maybe, if the group is into that.

    i'll surely take a hug.
    At some point in time a man switches from "I'll have what he's having" to "I'll have what I'm having."

    Jonny - we might be able to accomodate a tent without a car; i think it depends on how many spaces we end up with. Given that we're all procrastinators, we won't know for a couple of weeks.

    HockeyKid53 - *laugh* the comment you're responding to is from 2008!

    Mitch - AFAIK most of us are going weekend 1, not weekend 2. I might be wrong, though.


    So my sense is, we have [WKND1]:

    * jgafs
    * manolo
    * grifter + cousin
    * joy (but not paying attention yet)
    * ride a tire! (maybe?)
    * ibuprofane (maybe?)

    [WKND2]:

    * ApacheRunner
    * Saumuraifez
    * MitchMitcherson

    I've spoken with both Aaryn and Ed; neither of them made it. Ed is taking his girlfriend to a festival in Napa.

    I'm still working out the details on my transition to the area, but I'm 99% confident that I'll be there. Joy also indicated that her sister was going to buy my extra ticket, so that might be one more.

    Good to know, i also will be attending Wk1 (as long as i get my ticket) but i have no place to camp, as of yet. Any takers!?!?! i don't require much space as i use my beard for shelter. There's plenty of room for those who don't have a tent! hahaha!

    so there are ppl attending both weekends?! why not! I mean, then your chance to see bands/artists u missed before...I wonder how that is for them bands, what weekend they are "better" (you know, a bit like theater performances...) and the temperature-differences...

    anyway, I see the best part comes just before when its time to coordinate everyone/every spot its fun to see for a 1st time I guess you guys know how many ppl fit in one spot...btw could anyone post the general area plan?
    1st time in the US!!! ...starting with Coachella!!!

    Hmm. I can bring a portuguese flag and we can hang it from a canopy or tent or something, which will indicate where we are; that will make it easier to find us. (Of course, if we're not the only people with a portuguese flag, it won't help. )

    Hello. Obviously I'm super last minute, but I would love to join this group, if possible. My name is Garfield. I am from Vancouver, and I've never been to Coachella, or any festival like it for that matter so don't really know how all this works. Thanks,
    G

    I'm going to be camping alone this year too...May I join your posse?

    My name is Brittany (I'm 21). I am from Sacramento, CA and I am trying to find a ride that leaves on Thursday so that I can set up camp. This is my third year at Coachella, second time camping. I have a tent that fits two and I'll be bringing some snacks/cooler.
    I'm going to try to fit some cards and maybe my mancala board so that we can do something during the hot morning.
    I am planning on leaving Monday morning so I can get back to northern California before Tuesday (That is if I can find a ride)

    What do you say?

    No, I don't think that is necessary. I am talking with a co-worker who I know is going and camping and they are leaving from Sacramento, so it works out better that way. Thank you for the offer though!

    How does this work? do we meet at the gate or something and then set up camp? Last time I camped, they escorted us to the plot where we were told to set up.
    also, (this may seem lame, but what does PM mean?)

    Haha, I didn't know before I was on the boards either, no worries...it just means private message.

    Here's the official word from the Coachella website so as long as I get there first and everybody calls me to find out where we are at, ahould work out beautifully:

    Can we/How can we camp next to each other if we are not arriving together?

    This is a tough one but we can try. Help us help you. Whoever is first in your group to arrive, you must tell the camp counselors how many people are planning to camp with you. You will be assigned an area and you are responsible for contacting the rest of your group to tell them your camp spot. When your friends arrive they must tell the counselors where you told them you were camping to be directed to that spot. IF for some reason your spot was moved or you can't reach them, you may try and leave a message for them at the onsite camping Cyber Cafe, telling them where your spot is. This should work most of the time and we apologize for any glitches that may occur. AND you must make an effort to have everyone arrive before saturday night and understand you risk your spots being filled up by other campers arriving as the campgrounds get close to filling up.

    Just a note...I did an alternate camping group last year, and figured I could follow these rules. We wound up with 70+people. Arrived shortly after the campground opened, and the camp crew didn't know what to do. Apparently, the "Camp All Alone" group had pre-arranged somehow, and their section was all layed out in the back corner. But they didn't know how to handle another large group.

    Eventually, they took care of us...actually they were awesome, and the delay wasn't very long. It helped that I had a printout of everyone on the list and some other organizational stuff, so they took me a lot more seriously. But if you can somehow contact someone in advance, it will be a lot easier on you.
