    Anybody have a guess of how long it would take to walk from venue to campsite and back? I wanna be able to come out once a day but am a little nervous I will miss an act i want to see.

    Mark and I tested soaking gummy bears/worms in alcohol for a couple of days. The worms/bears swell and they retain the vodka really well. I think we may have either used too much vodka or left the worms/bears in for too many days because when we tried them it felt like more than a shot of vodka each time I was eating one. Maybe I'm just a wuss...

    Depends on where you end up in the campground but it can be up to 20+ mins one way. The in and out thing is nice and all but the distance almost makes it not worth it unless there's a huge gap in what you want to see. Sasquatch really needs to get a locker system in place.

    It takes a good 20 minutes to walk from the festival back to your campsite(depending on where your at). I would say to plan at least a hour to walk,eat, ect.

    Edit :

    Agree with all of this. It may be benefical on days you dont want to miss acts to just pack a lunch and eat it on the hill.

    Thanks for help on food, too! If you guys have any other suggestions, let me know. I am having a hard time thinking out of the box for food ideas.

    I don't get how festival food can be so bad? I mean everyone says it's terrible but I have eaten some pretty bad food in my day so what is it that makes it so, so bad?

    My only experience was two years ago when I bought a $9 hot dog from the stand at the top of the hill. The bun was cold, hard and you could tell had just been sitting out all day. I think that hot dog had been on the grill since 9AM that morning. It was shriveled up, and all dried out. It was honestly worse then what you would have purchased at a gas station and was $9! All my other friends had simular experiences.

    Why didn't you ask for another one? Or ask for your money back? I guess if you're hungry that's not an option! Please tell me more horror stories about the food so I don't try to think I will be the exception to the rule and buy some anyway.

    Is there a spot outside the festival entrance to lock bikes? I always brought my bike to Coachella and I figured it would be a great way to get from the campgrounds to the festival.

    Think of food that wishes it was on par with what is served in a hospital's cafeteria. The food booths even manage to screw up the burgers, which are sort of grey tinged. Pretty much the only item that is consistently palatable is the yakisoba noodle/rice bowls.

    FYI, the iced coffee is very popular and tends to have quite a long line.

    I don't think bikes are allowed on the trail between the festival grounds and the campground. Plus, it's kind of a steepish trail with a few switchbacks and it can get very crowded too.

    I have never noticed bike locks. It may be pretty hard to ride a bike from the camp grounds. There is always a lot of people on a pretty narrow path... half of it is gravel hill as well.

    Amphitheaters and arenas always have the shittiest concessions, and despite the unique setting, that's what The Gorge is. A bad meal is okay when people are just coming in for a night to see a show, but 4-5 days? I don't know why they won't bring in food trucks or I <3 Spicy Pie to go along with the standard concessions.

    Regarding food they always have those oriental noodles with chicken and you request no chicken as well. Outside of that everything else is pretty poor. The chicken strips were somewhat edible but not all that great, usually hard and rarely hot. Your best bet is to stick to basics if you must eat inside. I think they have pizza as well. I've also tried the burgers and cheese steaks and they are all below average. We would get back to Wild Horse at night and be blown away by how good everythng was there. It was all fresh of the grill too. They even had a good strawberry shortcake sype dessert.

    Between the food, showers and slightly more mature crowd, I always thought Wild Horse was worth the extra money but I can understand those who would rather stick to the main campground.

    Really? I've tried it a number of times thinking "this year they will get it right." And they never do. I pretty much survive the weekend by eating chicken strips.

    Last year though, I only went one day and the only thing I bought was water. The rest of the day I just had free food samples. So many POP Chips and Soy Fruit Bars.

    When/where were you planning on biking? I think I remember hearing about a trail or two in the area...

    The only thing inside the grounds, that wasn't free, was the quesadillas which were surprisingly good. Only one location sold them but they were good. I would rather have spicy pie though.

    Speaking of which, I was wondering how the generator and the RV will work. Since there's a fridge, does that mean the generator runs all weekend? Do these things ever wear out?

    believe most rv fridges run off of a propane tank. we were good for 5 days at coachella last year, used very little propane. generator will run off of your main fuel supply, but i believe it shuts off if you get below a certain level in your tank.

    Well I'm just thinking for inside the fest. I get munchies! I'm not really that worried, just trying to plan ahead.

    I know we paid for unlimited generator use. Not really sure what is powered by what though, that's a Mark question.

    Gotcha. I figure I'll eat something in the RV when I wake up and then bring some snacks and maybe get one nasty meal a day inside.
