    ok they wised up and started putting tent campers closer to entrance first. However I am staying put. If you see a solo tent at the far end come say hi!

    Hmm, as I expected, filling the front of Lot 8 first, then Lot 5, then probably back to the rest of Lot 8 sometime this afternoon.

    My thoughts exactly. It only makes sense.

    They didn't spend to much time searching any particular thing.


    They did look underneath the car.
    They did check underneath the seats.
    They did ask us to lift up the floor board in the trunk, they checked the spare tire.

    This is really helpful. Thank you!

    What time did you arrive into Indio? Which lot did you end up in?

    They just took someone's rubber stake hammer because it's a potential weapon. What a joke. Looks like they will have to search for a rock.

    Got through with just my boyfriend and I in a small car (ford focus) in a few minutes. Only two people searched us and were not super thorough. They took our rubber mallet though. The big van in front of us got searched by 4-5 people though, and they really searched the van. We were friendly and polite and they treated us nicely and were careful with our stuff. They did not open the tent or canopy.

    I may have to stow my mallet in the canopy bag...

    Taking the mallet and stakes is a major dick move on their part.

    How else will the general store make money on selling those items if they don't confiscate them upon entry? Duh.

    Yeah if anyone can get any reasoning behind the tent stakes, or what they're telling people to do for their tents if they take them...

    Oh yeah. General store sells em. That's fucked up.

    This is all very valuable information for any folks that have not yet entered the car camping check-ins either and is not subject to the excluded Weekend 2 folks who get to watch a festival that already happened the week before.

    So if you went to the theater you'd only go on opening day? It takes a rare combination of self-centeredness and general grouchiness to put forth this sort of attempt to rain on the parade of weekend 2ers. I doubt anyone going the second weekend cares about your petulant scoffs.
