You are going to drive to Oakland on friday and then head down to Indio the next day? That's silly. Or are you talking about this wekeend?

From San Diego to Sacramento, it's a 8-9 hour drive. From LA to Oakland, it'll probably take 6-8 hours depending on traffic. Take the advice given above and just fly there.

dude, you are from texas, this is what you are saying:

"I'm flying into Houston and want to drive up and visit my friend in Oklahoma."

My only guess is that it's considerably cheaper for him to fly into LAX instead of Oakland. It is definitely cheaper for me to fly into LAX (than Palm Springs) when I head out to Coachella. That being said, L.A. to Indio is not nearly the drive that L.A. to Oakland is. I don't know any ticket price difference that would make it worth it to me to do the above.

it's usually cheap to fly SW to OAK
