Just thought I'd post this here too...please, if you can help out or know someone who can, contact me or post here. (This is in the carpools section too).

Okay so my original plan on how I was getting to/back and where I was staying for both Coachellas this year fell through for reasons I'd rather not get into or think about right now. Anyway that leaves me at the moment with no secured ride to and back for either weekend So I'm hoping by posting this I can get some help on this matter. I don't have a car of my own or anything like that, which is why I'm asking for some help. I'll try and keep it as short as I can, but continue on reading below if you think you might be able to help me out. I live out in North Hollywood btw, so I guess this goes mostly for L.A./so cal people.

Weekend 1:

Currently I have one standard weekend pass for weekend 1. I may be getting a guest pass for this weekend for myself (which would then mean my normal weekend pass would be up for grabs, which I could sell to someone who is willing to help me out, etc). I won't know for sure if I get the weekend 1 guest pass until closer to the event...but in any event, my plan for weekend 1 is to camp with my normal camping group I've camped with for the past two years, so I really just need a ride out to Indio and the campground on Thursday, and back on Monday. If you're camping too, then great...I could just ride into the campground with you, go meet up with my group, then Monday morning, meet back up with you at your spot, help pack your car, and be on our way.

Btw, if I do in fact get the guest pass for this weekend, we just have to make a quick stop, once in Indio, to pick up my guest pass (usually at the Indian Wells Tennis Garden), usually only takes 20 mins or so. I would help chip in for gas money of course and all that. No problem there.

Weekend 2:

For weekend two, I also have a standard weekend pass PLUS a car camping pass (but again, no car)....so in this case, I'd be willing to let someone have the car camping pass for their car, as long as I can ride into the campground with you and crash at the spot. So if you're someone who has a car, a pass, and maybe no place to stay yet, or wants to camp but doesn't have a car camping pass...this could be the perfect oppurtunity. And again, like weekend 1, I may get the guest pass for this weekend instead (if I don't get it for weekend 1) - so I may have an extra weekend 2 pass when all said is done...again, I won't know that until closer to the fest, but I can update this when I know for sure. Whatever the case, if someone is interested in wanting to camp together for the weekend, and can drive out to weekend 2 on Thursday and back to L.A. on Monday, that would be awesome. Again, I would help chip in for gas and all that, no problem. As for gear, all I should have both weekends is my backpack, my bag, and my tent...so not much at all (I won't be packing your car full of shit, don't worry).

Anyway, there are plenty of people/vets on here who can vouch for me. Heck, I'm the co-admininstrator on here, and I run coachellarecordings.com, so you'll be traveling with "the coachella expert". That's cool right? I'm pretty chill, mellow, and I can provide plenty of Coachella boots to listen to on the car ride to and back if you wish. Feel free to PM, post here, ask questions, whatever if you're able to help me out. Vets, newcomers, whatever. Please. It's close to the festival, and I'm gonna start freaking out soon =/

You're coming from LA, right?

I could get you a ride, but you'd have no guarantee to get there even close to early on Friday. You'd have to ride with my brother who is a narcissist, yet oddly silly. We'd get you home on Monday, but it may mean getting up by 6am.

If you're interested, let me know.

In all seriousness, as others could actually testify, my bro ain't easy but he'll get you there and back.

Are you referring to weekend 2 only? I can't guarantee I'll have an extra ticket for weekend 2 (it will be either W1 or W2, I just don't know for sure yet) but I do have a car camping pass that weekend like I said, so if you wanted to camp with your car out there, you could use it.
