Hey y'all-

I am driving to Indio solo from the East Valley. I have a four door Impala with plenty of room.

I am a 28-year-old dude, writer/photographer, 420 friendly, super laid back and chill, a festival veteran but first time Coachella'er.

Hit me up lets make something happen!

fill up that Chevy well before you hit CA.....our gas is well over $4.15 per gallon.

Your drive is 4 hours from the Cardinals stadium.

Nothing is close to University of Phoenix Stadium. Nothing.

Camping or hotel?

Camping or hotel?

I'm staying at a house with friends from LA. It's supposedly only 4-5 miles from the grounds.

So I will be near the site and we can make arrangements if need be.

Still have room for one person!

Tom, jump in with higgi. If you're lucky, they'll listen to EDM the entire drive.

damn LA isnt even that much. Where you at?

04-04-2011, 12:53 PM
I paid $4.05 this weekend. in Az.

Tom let me know if you want to Carpool. I have one buddy flying in from Michigan Wednesday and it is now just the two of us, instead of just me.

Just an option.

I paid 3.97 this weekend but most of LA is between 4 and 4.05. The place i go to is always a bit cheaper for gas and smokes and is right next to freeway witch is odd.

Damn, I just paid $3.45

1 27yr old dude in Glendale in need of a ride. Also first timer, staying in Palm Springs with old roommate who is a Coachella veteran. Down to help with gas or beer $. Are you leaving Thursday, coming back Monday morning?

04-04-2011, 08:35 PM
Hey Tbird... I am planning on leaving Thursday and heading back Monday.

04-07-2011, 09:25 AM
Hey there, tentatively planning on shoving off around 5 p.m. - give or take. I will have to work for a bit on Thursday but will leave immediately from there. I am a writer for a family of newspapers in the Casa Grande Valley Newspapers so I would be jumping on I-10.

I currently have myself and one other person FOR SURE. I have been talking to another gal who needs a ride but possibly may need to leave earlier to check into her hotel. If that falls through I may have room for two.

Ha that's awesome. A bunch of Mitten folk, I love it.

I'm definitely down for carpooling, I do plan to drive though, as my friend and I are staying at a house near the festival with some other, you guessed it, Michigan friends. So we may need to use my car as a shuttle.

I can't make Robbie's this weekend cuz I'm covering Country Thunder for my newspaper so I will be at that Festival all weekend starting tonight.

But like I said I have some room for a person or two in need of a ride. We can just split gas costs or have everyone chip in some cash and everyone can be responsible for their own food and other things. Munchies, etc.

I can be found on facebook, too, for a better idea about who I am. www.facebook.com/sphiggi

Anybody leaving Friday From Phoenix, only need a ride one way to Coachella on Friday.

04-07-2011, 03:46 PM
Im down for a ride. My ride just bailed on me and I really wanna go. Im in Tempe

04-07-2011, 04:36 PM
My ride and camp spot just had a family emergency so me and my girlfriend are stuck in PHX airport Wednesday night as of now.
After he told us we could get rides we got our plane tickets for wednesday night cause thats when he was leaving and sold my camping pass cause he said I could stay with him.
Anyway, I'm sure it'll all work out amazingly, but we appreciate any help getting to that point.

ld love to except I work 9-6 on saturday.

04-07-2011, 05:30 PM

I still have some room left, if you're coming from the PHX Valley and are in need of a ride to Indio and are down with splitting GAS costs hit me up. An enjoyable trip it will be, guaranteed. Just trying to help out some fellow festie-heads.
