    Default When does the Coachella experience start for you?

    Alright, it pretty much is going like this. I for the most part am avoiding drugs n alcohol until Coachella. Thing is, I myself am not quite sure when the opportune time to break my sobriety would be. At what point does The Coachella experience begin for all of you?

    My group and I plan this trip months in advance, so I'd have to say the experience starts when the dates are announced.

Ill already be packed, ready to depart, waiting for my buddy to get off work at 9am. Ive been checked out of work mode for at least a week prior (I aint doin shit but collecting a check) When my buddy and I merge onto the freeway I feel reality melting away. Feels like Im going home. Once we get there its all business setting up camp, I dont want to mess with anything after the first day. Tents canopies and sleeping areas all dialed in. THEN and only then will the madness begin.

    Mine starts the moment I wake up in the hotel after the last day of Coachella and I start thinking about all the things I want to do different next year!

    There is no stop! I wear Coachella shirts all year! Tell everyone about it and talk them into going as hard as I can.

    My whole year is planned around Coachella and a Disc Golf Tournament in the woods of Arizona, that is almost as good a time as Coachella.

    Never stops! From the first minute I planned my first Coachella, it is always right there in my head, always close to the surface, and even last year when I was at Coachella I was planning for this year:-)

    It begins for me as soon as I step foot into Chicago O'Hare International Airport. Going to Boise, Idaho to visit my good friends then road trip to Vegas Wednesday for a little fun, then waking up early Thursday and heading to Indio. Cant wait! Last year was probably the greatest time of my life, I met many new friends and will be returning this year with the same people. It doesnt get any better than Coachella! 22 days!!

    On the car ride from LA, stop at a bar early morning, sometimes the casinos.

    Have you guys tried the bar/food place outside of the rose garden?
    Whiskey Sour

    2 oz blended whiskey
    Juice of 1/2 lemon
    1/2 tsp powdered sugar
    1 cherry
    1/2 slice lemon

    Shake blended whiskey, juice of lemon, and powdered sugar with ice and strain into a whiskey sour glass. Decorate with the half-slice of lemon, top with the cherry, and serve.

    Yep. And for me, that's now - I'm gathering all my stuff together, setting up the canopy and tent, making sure everything works, etc.
