Okay, i'm from Phoenix Arizona, my friend lives in LA (i'm flying out), and I'm an 18 year old senior in high school, and i've missed alot (they hate when you do that), so i'm trying to find a balance between missing as little school as possible and seeing as much coachella as possible.
Should I fly out thursday afternoon, or friday morning, or after I get out of school friday at noon? If I leave friday, my flight would be at like... 1:30, meaning i'd get into LAX at roughly 2:30. When do the shows start, when do I want to be there by, etc.
Sunday night- I read that everything shuts down at midnight sunday. Should I take a red eye flight monday morning, ie: 1:00 or 2:00am? Or Is it pretty much miserable to leave coachella at midnight and expect to go to the airport, etc.
Building a Fort- Car Camping
Okay, we have our car camping spot, and a fairly large SUV. I figure the SUV will take about 1/3 of the space up, leaving us a 10'x20' space to get our camp on. Would it be 'against the rules' to bring some 2x4's and plywood and build a (very basic, easily torn down and taken away) 5 to 8 foot high platform with a ladder that we could put our tent on and just have a good time?
I think that pretty much covers what i need to ask, thanks for any help guys!
