    Driving to Indian Wells from LA this morning was a challenge-windy and stuff blowing around all over the 10 freeway. But it was pretty nice most of today-breezy here and a bit cloudy but nice. I hope the wind goes away before lots of people drive here! I am enjoying the desert for a few days pre-Coachella!

    We're heading out tomorrow for some pre-coachella vacation too.

    So I just noticed that metal stakes are "not allowed" yet I could have sworn we used them for our tent last year (W1). We didn't stake down the canopy and I believe it toppled over Friday.

    The metal stakes are pretty small, can I expect them to really sniff them out and confiscate them?

    I mean, it won't be hard to hide them. There will be a ton of shit in the car and even if I leave them where they are now it's a little side pocket in the EZ UP bag.

    I just thought I read stuff here about people having them confiscated.

    Bring gear and be ready for f'n windchella

    if your lucky you might get blown...and not blown away.

    I guess I have to take back the hard time I gave you, earlier... You wouldn't happen to know just how far east it might have gotten blown to, do you? Seriously, at about 5pm yesterday, those steady breezes and random gusts earlier in the day suddenly chose to just blow the shit out of this desert. It really did look like the pic above, except for the sky being brown instead of overcast gray. It could be a good thing though if it was that Alaskan storm they talked about...It was strong enough to blow all the loose sand and dirt away, so that it may not be so bad if there are mild winds during the fest. Curious how the construction went down the street during that time...

    After some of the damage and loss last year because of wind, and the shitstorm we got today, I would hope that GV waived that stupid rule in favor of everyone using whatever it takes to prevent accidents or injuries in the campground from flying debris, EZups, tens, and trash. I know that plastic stakes work, but I doubt they're any better than the original stakes the tents came with...Like these...

    We have the ones that are like giant corkscrews, but I imagine those would be considered "not allowed" due to size, or whatever they deem dangerous. But, to confiscate the parts that came with your product seems ridiculous if it's a matter of safety.
    Its like the Infinite Monkey Theorem, if you put X amount of monkeys in a room with a typewriter and ask them to give you Shakespeare 99% of them will fling their shit at you while the other 1% will masturbate in the corner.

    I'm getting stressed out. My work moving buildings this week has not helped. I got plastic stakes yesterday but they're too big for my EZ Up. Hopefully they will work with my friend's tent.

    Guess you don't live out here in Indio/Coachella

    This IS the windy SEASON...not day. We have these winds for over a month sometimes two months. They come and go, but the high winds are often...at night 50 mph + is common.

    I'd take the metal stakes and hide em well...wrap them in a shirt or put them under the seat...there's gotta be somewhere you can put em.....shoot put em in with your tent...they aren't gonna take your tent apart. I'd take metal ones

    be prepared...stakes, glasses to protect your eyes, visine, respirator or cloth to cover your mouth + windbreaker jacket. If you haven't been out here when the wind is whipping...you have NO IDEA. It's like trying to tell a guy who surfs in San Diego what the waves are like at the Pipeline in Hawaii.

    Alarmist WHO WAS FUCKING 100% CORRECT MOTHER FUCKERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Those of you going this coming weekend PLAN AHEAD

    If you go to a locker hit the locker around 5-6 before dinner and have em with you
    Bring a long sleeve shirt AND a windbreaker
    2 - go to Home Depot and buy 1 pair of safety glasses (they are clear $5.49) and buy one respirator (white $1.89)
    also a light pair of gloves

    during the day you'll think you won't need em...even at 5pm it won't seem like it, but if there's a little wind during the day there's gonna be a ton at night.

    I FUCKING TOLD YOU SO WEEKEND ONE! THAT'S WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU GET ADVICE AND DON'T LISTEN

    I wasn't prepared and I more or less took home the desert in my lungs.

    Best advice I should have listened to: go to Home Depot and buy 1 pair of safety glasses (they are clear $5.49) and buy one respirator (white $1.89)

    Guess i am going to visit Home Depot! I had protection for breathing, but did not think to bring eye protection. Should have known. Not sure where to buy a windbreaker where I live, but maybe it's easier to find in the Coachella area?

    additional -

    buy a few extras as Home Depot will take anything back you don't use...and it'd be easy to lose a respirator if you drop it...take extras.

    Your friends will thank you.

    Shit I could have sold those $1 respirators for $50 each EASILY during RHCP same thing goes with the glasses.

    Note: the glasses are not the ones you wore in High School science class...they are clear hard plastic....you'll find them in the tool area.

    It's been worse than it was on Sunday

    Monday you couldn't even see the mountains -----the freaking mountains were gone because of how much dust was in the air

    my pool turned into a mud pit

    last night it sounded like a hurricane was whipping the house.....

    so YES THE WIND IS STILL HERE - and in force.

    one other thing...don't forget pants

    you may not have any wind at all this weekend, but you are better off prepared than not.

    also, bring jeans or pants for night time.

    We decided to go to the outlet mall outside of town before heading to the airport Monday. Traffic was insane on the 10 and the dust was ridiculous. What should have been a 20 minute drive was an hour and 15. Got some great deals though so it was worth the trip.

    Wind is in full force still

    Does not mean it'll be here this weekend

    Be ready in case...it's far worse right now outside than it ever was Sunday (sandchella)
