That's my formula too. Shower, comfy bed, pool time, a Starbucks run, some light food and hit the field.
Yep, we have a friend with a house down the street. Endless water (to drink and bathe), comfy bed, A/C, breakfast made for us, no noise. Been Coachella-ing for many years and we're just too old for the stuff outside of the music.
Stretch your legs, neck, back during the day...you'll feel the soreness at night. Hats are a lifesaver considering it's going to be in the high 90's.
I always stretch well before snorting a line. Don't wanna pull a muscle.
Seriously though...people that get sick and have the flu, depression ect.
ARE THE ECSTASY USERS. That shit is garbage. Serotonin cannot be produced quick enough no matter how much 5htp or ginko or golden seal you take. Before you roll drugs and most other vitamins are low quality and not chelated or useable by your system. Your pissing out most of it.
-Vitamin C every morning before the fest
-Drink a half gallon of water before the fest, and before sleep
-Hot shower, it really does wonders
-Pace yourself with bud, I know you can't have too much of a good thing, but it'll slow you down a bit if you smoke too much too early.
-Try to time it so that whatever mind-expanding substances you take start to wear off around the time you should be going to sleep
-Eat a good breakfast
-Stretch before the fest
Were talking being sick for two weeks afterwards and calling it a coachella flu. Fools take ten beans a day and roll brains and then they are empty, and brain damaged.
Acid, shrooms will not leave you sick for days or depressed. Opposite really. Alcohol is the worst drug ever as far as immune system and feeling like death afterwards. Iin my moronic opinion
well, i do agree with you. but 10 pills a day is just not being responsible at all haha. if you know what you are doing, you will be just as fine as anybody else. i guess thats the point i was trying to make. but people already know that, and if you don't..
EVERY SUNDAY when the sun starts to set....I'm always amazed at how beautiful it is...but I always ask it to stop....please stop for just a few hours.
Seriously such a bittersweet time, I love Coachella at sunset.... it starts to cool, the lights come on, and the sky turns beautiful colors. But it always goes by too fast and on Sunday you know you won't have that feeling again for another year. Last year was especially beautiful, pink skys into whipping winds and a full moon. I'm just gald I get two Sunday sunsets this year!!!!!
Now I just have to figure out how to survive all 6 days!
-hotel vs.camping: a *good* hotel is best, but I think a great tent/campsite would be better than a shitty hotel...IMHO. But even good hotels can have issues...I got stuck in the elevator for 2 hours at the Grand Champions a few years ago, which caused me to miss a band I really wanted to see. Shit happens.
-if you're driving to the festival each day (from home or a hotel), leave some water in the car when you park. You will be glad to have done so, when you return to your car at the end of the day (bonus if it's ice cold). Substitute beers at your peril.
-get as much water as you can comfortably carry as soon as you enter the grounds (I always bring a small backpack mainly for this reason). Buy more water when you're running low...don't wait until you're out of water and thirsty.
-many people don't realize that it can get chilly in the evening, especially if walking back to a car (more on that below) Consider bringing a hoody or something, unless the forecast is very warm. Getting cold will make you even more tired.
-in the heat of the day, spend some time in the shade whenever possible. Sunscreen, wide brim hat, shades,etc.
-again for the daily commuters: the parking lots can be confusing at night...do your best to remember where you parked, write it down somewhere or email it to yourself before you enter the festival grounds. Note some of the landmarks you walk past along the way. I can't tell you how many times I've seen people exhausted, crying, dehydrated, and generally freaking out because they've been searching for their car for 2 hours and have no clue where it could be. Don't be that person because you'll bum me out.
-wear sensible shoes, especially if you have any foot problems.
Two words: Gold Bond. If you're like me, three days of sweating profusely, dancing and walking for long distances will leave you mighty chafed. By Sunday last year I could barely walk. Won't make the same mistake this year.
