As I got hooked by attending my first Coachella last year, I also benefited from a United Airlines Screw up and recieved a free ticket round trip oto anywhere in the continental US. I redeemed it for a ticket starting in Sacremento and ending in LA. Best Roadtrip I've taken (so far) Drove tip to tip of California along the coast in a (rented) Mustang convertible, top down most of the time, of course. Saw everything from the giant sequoia trees, to the great beaches of big sir, even walked across the border to Mexico.
Next roadtrip, Coachella (April 25 - 27) & Bamboozle (May 3 & 4) 2008.
I hail from Toronto, Ontario, Canada so we hear a little more about Bamboozle over Coachella (although it's been part of Toronto radio talk for about 4 years now around April) so this year I'm doing both as they are only a weekend apart. It'll give me 5 days to leave toronto and drive to Indio, 3 days for Coachella, then 5 days to drive back to New Jersey, 2 days for Bamboozle then it's about an 8 hour drive home.. That'll roughly be 10 000 km (or 6 250 miles) and 2 festivals in 16 days.
