    Dust was brutal especially Sunday. My bandana came in handy.

    I'm on that level right about now. Don't think it's the flu, but I've had a really sore throat, cough, and headache since leaving the fest. Probably just a cold, but a bummer nonetheless.

    yeah, it seems like some kind of bastard cold-allergy hybrid. Either way, it fucking blows.

    my girlfriend woke up sick Sunday morning which made the 95 degree heat all that much more oppressive. she was a trooper though and we still saw all the bands on our list.

    in a somewhat related note, can we get hand washing stations near the bathrooms? that hand sanitizer just doesn't seem to do the trick..

    Only HALF the time!? I think out of all of my bathroom trips, I got sanitizer twice. Luckily I usually had my individually wrapped (very green, right?) hand sanitizer wipes with me.

    At least I never got a stall without toilet paper.

    Likewise. Gf and I are both messed up, but she is worse off. It was amazingly smokey this year. Foul stuff, too. What the hell are the kids smoking these days? My nose and throat were so irritated i didnt even have the will to smoke my own joints. Neti pot has helped.

    I got it really bad last year, and was doing pretty good until Sunday, when it began to kick in. Monday I was hacking away, and grateful that the grass was somewhat existent this year on the camping grounds, because I still sound like I have laryngitis, and my throat is sore as hell. Not nearly as bad as last year, but still a bitch.

    Caught the Coachella flu on Friday already. That dust cloud around 5pm was unavoidable. Then on Sunday, the fever and chills arrived. It was the first time I ever got sick in my 6 years going to Coachella. Thankfully, I ran into someone who had Tylenol on them, which helped me survive through nearly all of the amazing sets that evening. Monday morning was brutal, could barely make it from the tent to the car. The aches totally amplified my already sore feet. Of course, it was all totally worth it! Intense!

    I've been stricken. Saline rinses, decongestants and antihistamene diet.

    it hit me bad on the plane ride home yesterday, I thought my ears were going to explode. My throat is sore as shit, my nose is running all over the place, my lips are so chapped they are falling off, my ears still haven't popped, and I'm sun burnt. Can't wait for work tomorrow!


    P.S.- Would do it again in a fucking heartbeat

    I started getting sick (sore throat) on Sunday. I blew about 3 pounds of snot into assorted Kleenex tissues yesterday. It's subsided a bit today (no more sore throat) but I'm glad I had the foresight to request another couple of days off before returning to work or else today & tomorrow would've been fucking unmanageable. This is the first time I've ever gotten sick from Coachella. Usually I'm just sore as all hell.

    Yes. Unfortunately for me, it started on Saturday. My hacking was so uncontrollable and frequent it started to give me stomach pains. But the worst part had to be on Sunday as my vision started to deteriorate. I apologize to anyone who was standing next to me and was totally grossed out by my coughing.
