Thread: Noob Camping Question

    Default Noob Camping Question

    I realize this is a rookie question, but I'm a Coachella rookie. This is blunt: how do I prevent all my stuff from getting stolen on the camping grounds while I'm at the festival all day? I know they say to not "leave anything valuable," but does that include EVERYTHING? I mean yeah I could always have my wallet and phone, but what about clothes, medicine, etc?

    Sorry for this question, but feel free to make fun of me.

    Its pretty much a trust situation. Don't leave anything valuable in yr tent if yr worried about theft. It could happen I guess, just leave everything in yr car.

    I keep sacks of money with big "$" on them in my tent all day.

    Theft at Coachella is comparatively rare, to say Glastonbury, due to the high security and lack of access the general public has to the campground, however, keeping your valuabels in your car is a good suggestion. I have never had anything stolen from my tent (in 3 years) nor have I heard of others but I am sure it happens. Last year one of my tent-mates left his laptop and phone in the tent (unlocked, unguarded and windows open) and it was there when we returned exactly as he left it.

    We have also kept booze and drugs in our tent every year without bother. No need to steal those though... merely come by and ask.

    theft can happen anywhere. with over 10,000 campers, someone is gonna get it and probably post here after saying how coachella sucks. lol. but its a rare occurrence.

    there are no ins/outs to camping for one so most people will also be in the festival instead of just wandering back to camping to raid tents.

    my car was robbed last year in staff parking. they took all my weekend stuff. They must have needed dirty clothes bad or my contact lenses. That doesnt make me more worried about this year. (i hope they got injured the past year - karma)

    She's saying there's no ins and outs from the FESTIVAL to camping, right? We can leave camping to get breakfast in town or whatever. Right?

    But can you get back into camping if you go get "breakfast", or will you be forced to park in a non-camping lot [as noted in the updated Nazi papers on this very website] and stand in line with non-campers?

    i dont know if other cars were broken into. we didnt have a meeting or anything to discuss it. i just got momentarily mad and went home. it was a jeep, which is not what i drive now, neither of which matters imho.

    Answer the question though.

    If one is NOT allowed to park in the on-site parking after 10AM, then if one was to leave the grounds to eat some breakfast ... let's say at Denny's, when one returned a minute after 10AM, you'd force us to park with the non-campers, and walk in through the non-camping entrance. Correct.

    Nazi-like imo.

    Yes/maybe to the parking, no to the entrance. You enter the campsite and then proceed through the camping entrance. They're not savages, my friend.

    Irregardless, you have to be complete dumbfucks to make on-site campers park with the rest of the public, and trek their gears for KILOMETERS because you're too incompetent/stupid/lazy/Republican to be able to staff the camping entrance properly so that campers can have access to it AT LEAST until noon, preferably until 2P.
