    I was directed to the line all the way to the right. 2 cars up, there was a car being stipped down, about 6 staff members were pouring out bottle of Corona Bottles. another 2-3 were going thru the car. I figured, great! Stuck in the shitty line, they're gonna find my "stuff"...but by the time it was my turn to be inspected, the Inspection Supervisor looked at the line that built up behind me and asks me "Do you have any weed, glass, or hard alcohol" I say NOPE! And before I can get out of the car to show ID and let them search, he says to the staff...."OK these guys are good, circle 'em up, move on thru..."

    Fastest inspection i've ever had, no ID check, no opening truck or icechest or bags....we were cracking the hell up!

    Yeah our search was super easy, I was a little worried because I'm only 20 and we had 3 cases of beer + box of wine in our car for the 4 of us. The guys searching our car were super nice, they asked to open our trunk, asked how much alcohol we had and sent us on our way. Didn't take anything out of the car, didn't ask for ID. Nothing. Some people on this board are just paranoid haha

    Or some did get searched properly, I admit I was a little lazy this year with some things but what this thread should teach us is plan for the worst but expect the best

    people reading this for advice on car search:

    It's a complete crap shoot, don't smoke pot while waiting in line and hide your drugs/glass bottles/gunz well

    This thread is way too long when there is a simple solution: no glass, hide your drugs and just be cool.

    Yeah, I'm a douchebag, don't come back, blah blah blah...suck a dick to anyone hating on me. You would've done the same thing. Our shit WAS hidden. VERY well. The fact is, that the 2 cars in front of us, and the other ones in our field of vision at the time were getting EVERYTHING in their car gone through. I'm talking entire cooler going and being looked through, every bag and shirt unrolled, every sleeping bag unrolled, everything opened. They would've found whatever no matter where it was hidden unless you guys regularly go through these lines with your shit stuffed up your assholes. Which by the way people are acting towards me on this board (elitism seems to be quite prevalent around these parts) wouldn't be much of a surprise to me.

    You're just wrong. Like others have said it's completely random how tough they search you, but a good precaution would be to hide your shit well. If you don't feel comfortable with that, enjoy staying at a hotel.

    I've never had a problem getting anything into Coachella. Just be fucking creative and smart and you won't have problems either.

    I'm not doubting that you had good reason to be scared, I just fail to understand the logic behind deciding to book a hotel room last minute instead of just simply tossing your drugs or trying another entrance to sneak them in at another time. How did these options not occur to you while you were booking at some hotel that had some absurdly spiked prices? Or are you just filthy fucking rich and completely unperturbed by these po folk questions?

    Pack your trunk so tight that they don't want to search through it. Worked for me this year.

    That's exactly what we did BUT we had 5 of us together 4 of our group had no problem barely even checked 1 of our bags. But the last of our group got completely searched, everything out of the car, coolers, and bags. Searches were completely random as everyone else has said.

He was going through EVERYTHING, their coolers, the entire trunk, unrolling every sleeping bag, every shirt and piece of clothing in the bags, going through every part of the car, every pocket/glove compartment, under the seats/car itself/floor mats, inside the spare tire case and literally all through the car.
    seems like you got the exact same guys that checked our shit this year. with our van packed tight and even had some cargo up top, i was hoping some good vibes would make our search lax. a few cars from having our car checked, a new pair of yellow shirts show up to start their shift and they tore apart EVERYTHING. unraveling sleeping bags and ravaging the baggage. they even were frisking people at the car camping checkpoint--which i'm sure they didn't do this last year. anyways, this alarmed us because we had stashed our bottles of liquor in our sleeping bags and were gonna gooch the rest of our stashes. literally a car from being checked, we take out the liquor and throw it under the hood, and hide the rest of our goodies under the rear bumper. when it was our turn all they found was a sneak-a-toke i failed to remember i even took along with me.

    @Manic Episode Mike you should've just come up with clever way to sneak your shit in man. flipping a bitch a few minutes away from getting inside to go stay in a hotel over car camping sounds lame as fuck... like someone said on this forum before, if you can't figure out a way to sneak shit in, you probably don't deserve to.

    ok so i had a massive canopy, it went over 2 cars and was built out of pvc
    did not try to hide it at all.. strapped it to the top of the car
    had copious amounts of drugs
    the drugs we put in the door panel

    so we get there and 2 women greet us they cheerfully say they are going to search the car
    one is a white girl mid 20s the other is a black girl in her 40s and time hasnt done her well
    the young girl opens the back door to the suv and pokes around opens are cooler which is full with beer and ice and says "yep theres beer in here" which was pretty much the extent of the search..
    meanwhile the older lady is talking to my group ..
    "you dont have any drugs do you? no camping knives.. how about plastic poles.."
    when she said that my heart dropped but i just looked at her and said no.

    once she got done asking questions that was it. no further search just a "o" on our windshield and we were in

    honestly it was the laxest search i could have imagined

    unraveling sleeping bags? Jeez, there goes that idea. Must get more creative then.

    2011 was actually pretty quick and easy. Should arrive around 10pm so hopefully the crew is kind.

    Yes, we need to know. Hopefully someone posts about the severity of the searches.

    It'll be the same like every other year.
    If you have anything illegal on you- then hopefully you'll get lucky and get someone who is too overwhelmed by the toll line madness to search your things
