    They'll say four but the reality is if you missed Daft Punk you're pretty much screwed.

    You might be a Prochella if...

    ...you have the Spicy Pie locations memorized.
    ...you have a tattoo that says "Minute Maid never, Freshers forever".
    ...you layaway the hell out of tickets the second they go on sale.
    ...you play a "Where's Waldo" style game with Perry Farrell every year.
    ...you can close your eyes and count the number of steps it takes you to get from the Sahara to the Gobi.

    Noob is not a state of being; it's a state of mind. The kind of mind that can produce posts of this astonishing calibre.

    In my mind it's really that simple.

    I get a B on the test. I'd add:
    ...the line up coming out only adds to the excitement you felt when you bought your tickets in December.
    ...you read the line up from the bottom up...

    Best answer on here! This board saved our asses our first year. Coachella is different from every other festival we go to and requires special planning. It is thoroughly covered in the threads. The search button is your friend.
    Wow, 12 step meetings at Coachella, who knew? SOBERCHELLA.COM

    I'm a reasonable man, get off my case....

    This right here. Plus it's the reason why I could never go to Stagecoach, besides the fact I don't like country.

    when you can spot Narcs in the massive crowd.

    when you can absolutely time your sets/flow of crowd and get a good spot everytime.

    when you can budget your partying so you won't be ready to tap out come Saturday morning.

    a few that come to mind
    I would never want to belong to any club that would have someone like me for a member...
