Thread: Flying solo??????

    Default Flying solo??????

    So here's the predicament I'm in:

    My flatmates in their "it won't sell out" wisdom left the whole ticket buying process until it was too late. And after seeing the over inflated prices on ebay have resigned themselves to the fact that they're not going.

    Which leaves me flying solo at a 3-day camping festival.

    My options are to sell the ticket or suck it up and fly solo, perhaps even design a t-shirt slogan to that effect.

    Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated as to what I should do.

    I went solo to Reading and Leeds festival from here. I flew alone and had a nice big hotel room alone (thanks to my flakey ex-friends).

    I had a wonderful time. Lots of fun music. Of course I ended up meeting up with people there I knew but I also met a ton of new people before I found any of them.

    Stay home. There's air conditioning.

    yeah.. go solo.. went solo in 2001 and had one of the best times of my life.. being alone forces you to come out of your shell and meet new people you may never had met, had you been with your posse. Its had to the whole experience..

    Thanks everyone for their advice, except you dontfeedthebird, just jokes, air conditioning was one very strong contender in the pro side of the pro/con list for not going.

    Thankfully sanity pre-vailed as I can't miss coachella, and everything is booked-flights, hire car etc so no backing out now.

    Getting into LAX at 8.00 am on Friday and driving out to the camp site, so if anyone needs a ride around that time let me know.

    I must add here, there will be 20,000 of the most beautiful California girls you have ever seen in your life (the rumors are true) and they may get friendly and sympathetic at hearing your story. That's just my thought.

    Fly Solo!!
    I'm flyin up from Sydney for it solo, if ur in Reno that's a no brainer!!!! Actually no what am I saying, you should sell your ticket (to me) :P
    Recent studies at Yale have shown that being an asshole is detrimental to one's health. Professor Sweetlove, a Psychology professor, came on record as saying:
    "Assholes and local desert rats tend to live shorter lives and have less consensual sexual relations than non assholes. It could be due to lower testoserone levels or a chemical imbalance in the brain but some people are just wired to be.... well.... assholes"

    I'm in the same boat. My friend bought a 3-day pass but has decided to only go Friday. I don't have a set place to stay either, is that safe for a girl to do or should I just stay home ?

    Thumbs up Flying solo!

    Hell yeah - here's to rollin solo and loving every second of it! I can't wait to leave Pennsylvania and fly into LAX. The anticipation has me feeling like I'll finally be returning home for the first time since when I lived in beautiful San Jose, California as a little tike.
    However I must say that my initial excitement about Coachella developed after hearing about this years lineup of amazing artists, not to mention what may be one of the weekends final climactic chapters with the performace of the miraculously reunited RATM in what may only be described as a pinnacle of sensational moments in the history of live music.
    Digressing away from trivial matters, I'm looking forward to pitching my tent on the campground and partying hard with everyone! AIM me if you wanna meet up and chill out to some tunes.

    Cheers,

    LanceMJ

    also just do this man: when you're on the plane, stand up and say "hey who is going to coachella?" and I'm sure a bunch of people will come and be your friends

    that's what I'm going to do, flying solo
