Thread: What *shouldn't* you bring?

  1. #1

    Default What *shouldn't* you bring?

    Alright, there's a lot of lists of stuff you should bring with you floating around, but I'm somewhat of a minimalist. Did you ever bring anything that you didn't need, and wish you'd left at home?

    Don't bring anything you are afraid to lose. Don't bring $400 sunglasses. Buy a cheap pair at a truck stop.

    For Camping-
    You WILL NOT need the following items:

    Anything that requires electricity (girls, you won't be needing your blow dryer, or curling
    iron--and if you have to bring your "back massager," bring the battery opperated one)

    Lap top-it'll either melt in your car, get stolen in your tent and melt if it doesn't, and
    it'll run out of batteries. Just leave the office at home, it's only 4 days.

    Tons of blankets--you're in the desert, and while it may drop to the 50's, one or two--if
    not a single sleeping bag--should be just fine.

    Tons of food--remember that you'll probably only be eating breakfast at the camp site, if
    that. You'll basically only want to have plenty of stuff to drink in the mornings, too...
    especially if you tied one on the previous night (to rehydrate before another long day of
    being dehydrated again).

    Economy sized toilettries--4 days worth of everything you'll need, taking one shower a day,
    two if you're lucky.

    Tons of clothes--you won't need to dress in layers and if you keep in mind that coachella
    is more of a marathon than a fashion show, you'll be just fine. Think cool and comfortable.

    Soap for showering--the shower trailors have it.

    Alarm Clock--the heat at 6am inside your tent will wake you up just fine.

    Tons of shoes--again, think comfort. You'll be walking a ton. You really only need
    a pair of flip flops for showering, and your most comfy pair of walking shoes.



    Inside the Venue:
    Do not bring anything that is bulky that you aren't absolutely going to NEED

    forget about a blanket or towel to sit on if you don't mind dusting off grass when you get
    up

    don't bring a bulky sweater, a light jacket will suffice

    forget about an entire back pack, a small caryall will do

    don't bring in the full sized sun block--think small

    just remember, you'll be hot and sweaty during the day, and probably walking your butt off.

    you don't want any extra weight to lug around, or have to worry about losing while you're
    shakin' your money maker.


    well, that's all I have for now, I'm sure I'll think of more later.
    I don't have anything clever to say right now.

    To get the travel size of what you use, look for when the products you use come with the samples. I am ready for this year, I have my dove shamp/con, mini soaps, hair ties, toothpaste, hair putty, lotion, intuition razor(free with deo), etc.................. I set them aside and it makes traveling easy.

    Ladies, do not forget your razor!!!!!! I brought 2 cheap throw away ones last year, and I stayed silky smooth. After my first shower last year, a walked out with the razor in my hand. A lady approached me to see if she could use my razor, I told her she could have it. ewwww strangers razor

    I bring my own soap, I only want my soap touching my private parts.

    who knows... some people are real shitheads when it comes to people posting more than one thread on the same topic. they seem to think it's easy to find the exact thing you're looking for answers on somewhere in the dozens of pages of threads on the board. best thing to do is tell them to fuck off and keep asking until you get your answer.

    um, he wasn't being a shithead. i imagine he thought that if you weren't sure what to bring and what to leave, you ought to know "how" to bring things as well.

    tiffdud41's list reminded me of a festy i went to last year in australia, 3 day festival, it rained the entire time and on the second mornign as i was taking my morning dip in the mud pool that had conveniently formed a foot from my tent i saw 2 teenage girls walk past in dressing gowns on their way to the toilets with f ing hairdryers, i couldnt believe it, they were lucky they didnt electrocute themselves with all the mud and water around.

    Don't bring your significant other. Be kind to sheep, & leave them at home too.

    Sorry I was not trying to be rude. The search function is pretty helpful. You may still have to wade through a bunch of threads. Hannah was right I was just showing you that "Lost and found Be prepared" therad cause I thought it might be of use to you.

    just bring the essentials and leave the rest at home. all you really need are cheap sunglasses, sunblock, camera, cash, and maybe a hat. pack light and you'll be ok.
