    Default The Stuff You Found On The Ground Thread

    I'm curious as to what else everyone else found, the ground's a goldmine if you're lucky. Not saying keep your eyes on the ground of course, but in the last 4 years my group and I found a total of two iphones (returned!), 5 tabs, 4 pills, 2 mollys, about $75 and random flower things and awesome knicknacks just by sometimes looking down while walking around

    Wink Re: The Stuff You Found On The Ground Thread

    I found a ton of stuff!! (the other guys posting on here are douches and do not know the awesome feeling of ever finding cool stuff on the ground at Coachella like we do or they just fuck with people for no reason!)

    I found an iphone which i returned to the girl who lost it and she gave me 100$ AND I found 25$ on top of that!
    I few half empty capsules
    I also found a whole new growing love for the man I have been with for a little while

    But by far the last part is my favorite
    plus 125$ was really cool too!

    To the people who posted rude things before...coachella is a happy place where people come together for music so stop being a dick and get into the spirit

    If anyone found and returned my favourite blue Spy sunglasses, it would be a Coachella miracle.

    An iphone in the front of the Sahara, I was shouting, "Anyone lose an iPhone!?" and was asking those around me to check their pockets. After 10 minutes I got tapped on the shoulder, it was a guy asking if I found an iPhone. Needless to say he was incredibly happy, incredibly.

    After most people had left the campground on Monday I went camp diving. Found:

    - 58 beers (assorted kinds)
    - New sleeping mat
    - 2 new coolers
    - A really nice, big area rug (probably worth around $200+)
    - assorted foodstuffs (peanut butter x2, chips, granola bars, sodas)
    - odds and ends (Paper towels, aluminum spray bottles, zebra mask, decorations)

    This was all found in 10 minutes. I only checked like 4 camps. I cant believe the stuff I found. My guess is most people that camp at Coachella are either from overseas and cant take their stuff back or they're just rich kids from LA that dont know the value of a dollar. Either way, it was a good haul.

    wOW. I left camping early, so I didn't get a chance to grab the free leftovers. Also, I can't really look around for drugs with my kids next to me, lol.

    It is amazing all the things you can find doing this; someone in our group went home with only a slightly bent and perfectly usable ez-up last year.

    In 2011 we found a retainer and a funny floppy sunhat. That is about it.

    I found a pink flamingo the morning we left camp. A friend found sunglasses and another found a bag of mystery pills.

    I emptied a bunch of birth control pills on the ground in the Sahara. Not really.

    Some guy asked me for a cigarette and my friend pointed them to a full pack on the ground beside us. Him and his friend were thrilled! My friend was a ground scout the whole weekend; she found gum (fresh pieces in their wrappers), granola bars, etc. It seemed like she was paying more attention to the ground than the show though - I kept telling her to look up!
