Booked us an Integratron appoinment for the 19th. Should be a great way to start the weekend.
It just dawned on me again that I need to figure something out for thursday afternoon. Last year I went to Joshua Tree and paid homage to Gram, which was a really cool way to start my Coachella weekend. So I may do that again. Seems particularly relevant this year since First Aid Kit are playing.
Last year I entered JTNP at the southern entrance (the one just off I-10) which is actually pretty remote from the visitors center and stuff. As I drove through the park I played GP and Grievous Angel in my car as I made my way it to the cremation site. Then I sort of walked around and stared and tried to tune in that night in 1974. I tried to picture Gram dragging Keith out here and getting high in the middle of the night and staring at the stars. After a while I had to go to the bathroom so I left.
Tom I'll hang out with you in Joshua Tree on Thursday afternoon. We're going to do the Integratron on Thursday morning, so I'll already be in the area too.
Tom, do you want to go to Integratron with us?
I think he doesn't get in that early. But he should. TOM GET TO LANDERS AT 10:30 AND DO IT WITH US.
I'm less than 45 minutes from the West gate. A quick heads up to me at email@example.com and I can meet you at the gate or any of the landmarks in the park.
YES DO IT DO IT.
My Thursday is shaping up to be:
Whining about being up early --> chocolate chip pancakes --> sound bath --> threatening sharpie carriers with stabbing if they mark on my face if I fall asleep during the sound bath --> nappy time --> picking up John and Tiff from Target --> pool --> dinner --> beer/house party.
I don't think I could ever do something like this before Coachella. My mind would just be elsewhere.
After is a different story.

My day is Tommy's only with more Four Loko and less things to make me vomit aforementioned Loko.
I'm very excited about the prospect of seeing you all. I'm also very excited about weekly not vomiting.
I saw some other people referenced the Living Desert, That place is really cool. My parents are members there so I get in free anytime I come to the desert. There's a bunch of animals Cheetahs, Jaguar's, mountain lions, leopards, Giraffes, Big horn sheep, etc. It's also a botanical garden too so just walking around is fun. Highly recommend this place http://livingdesert.org/
