I want to apologize to all those that have posted on this thread and/or PM'd me about joining, and received no reply. I'm not trying to ignore anyone or disrespect anyone-- I've simply been extremely busy and haven't had the time check this thread every day and update it. I appreciate everyone's interest, and the organizers of this group are currently determinining whether we can still accommodate more members without the logistics becoming overwhelming.
There's also another group that is still actively taking members, who we may very well end up camping beside, so I'd suggest posting on that thread as well.
Thank you all for your understanding.
Our 40+ "Official" members are:
Rickibot + 1
Our 12(+?) "Unofficial-official" members are:
Nightmare000r (+? Organizer of the Unofficial Camp Alone Group - we currently have crossover members, so we're trying to determine if we should merge, set up camp side by side, or duke it out ol' skool...
Our 20 "Possible, but I'm not sure" members are:
aussie_surfhead & friends (+2) (Australia)
carlin +2 (Australia)
CoachellaVet (SoCal, USA)
itsmeNyk +3 (Winnipeg, Canada)
MichaelDominick (AK, USA)
If I have missed anyone, or misplaced anyone, please let me know and I will fix it.
In the meantime, the (4 Week!) countdown continues...
Greetings fellow Coachellans!!!
Welcome to the official Solo Campers Overflow thread (aka the Anyone & Everyone from Anywhere and Everywhere is Welcome Here thread-- with the usual, yet hopefully obvious and unnecessary qualification about respectfulness, decency, courtesy, civility etc. And with this being Coachella n' all, as I say, hopefully that qualification is completely unnecessary. :-)
I created this thread after discovering that the Official Camp Alone thread was closed, to see if anyone else was in my position-- i.e. going solo and looking to meet others to camp/commune/commute/dance/whatever with. It is open to anyone and everyone, solo or not, who would like to meet new people from anywhere and everywhere, have the time of their life for 3-5 sun and music soaked days, and hopefully create new friendships that endure past April 19.
This will be my first trip to Coachella, and I'm a newbie on these boards-- so any feedback and assistance is welcome and appreciated.
It has been suggested that I edit this top post with a list of names of people interested in camping together, as a method of getting to know each other in advance of the festival. So I have created an informal list based on the posts I've read. If I've put your name on the list and you want it removed-- too bad-- once yer in, yer in. 4eva. Yes, just like a real gang. Just kidding. Sort of. But not really.
If you're new to this thread and would like your name added-- say so in your post and I will add you. Additionally, an informal introduction might be useful, nothing epic, simply say where you're from, and some juicy tidbit about yourself, you know, to pique our interest and feed our desire to actually meet you in person. Barring that you could also say something you don't particularly like about yourself, you know, so we can be prepared for the worst! ;-)
I'll even start: I'm from Canada, eh. I like hockey.
Hmmmmm-- what else??? Oh yea-- I enjoy music (surprise!) rocket-pants and jolly-jumpers. In my spare time I like watching hockey and listening to music while wearing rocket-pants and bouncing in my jolly jumper.
As far as something I don't like about myself I'm desperate, lazy, humorless and hairy. And mean spirited. I'm hoping to meet others like myself-- preferably with extremely low standards. If that sounds familiar, we're either soul mates, or perhaps you're the one who's been stalking me on the online dating sites??? If so, wanna go camping? ;-)
Ok-- enuff tomfoolery-- now it's your turn...
I'll leave it at that for now, and see where it goes from here. Thanks to everyone who has voiced interest so far, and welcome to everyone visiting for the first time.
