^ if you mean the 74, is it possible it closes due to snow levels?
that bullshit right there will be the issue. Normally it's kind of fun, you go up and down this twisty mountain road and then you come down the pass and it's like BLAM indio all laid out in front of you. But if there are really high winds that kind of scares me.
Alternate route is 15 -> 79 -> 10 which is a bit farther and slower and can get bad traffic-wise but has less chance of me tumbling off a fucking cliff
The wind took our sleeping bags and pillows. The bitch never gave them back. Some lucky animals had some quality stuff for nesting that spring.
Thanks to google maps street view I have been able to identify the exact spot where I'll miss a turn due to wind and darkness, hit the spot where there's no guardrail, catch this rock formation like a ramp at a motocross show, and plummet to my gruesome death:

1 Coachella before I got sober, 7 since. I support both versions. If you wanna do the sober version, roll with us:
Click Soberchella 2013 for meeting details
9/23 - Portugal the Man / Swimm - Foxtail Pool Club - LV
9/26-27 - Life is Beautiful - Downtown LV
10/5 - Hiatus Kaiyote - Brooklyn Bowl - LV
The 60 can be treacherous too. A few years back a mother and her young son went off the side. She was killed instantly, and he managed to survive for days off snacks mom had packed for him. I think of her every time I drive that highway. Not to be a downer, but please drive carefully.
Yes, back to happy thoughts. I'm going to buy a clear plastic rain poncho and wear nothing but day glo body paint underneath on Friday.
Rainbows go great with rain, and with many other things. lol
Yo Bailey, you would be a pretty entertaining weatherman if you choose to go that route.
I'm nominating Bailey for 3 Drama Queen Awards this year...

So BD, in your expert and rarely solicited opinion, rain is a pretty concrete possibility, but would cheap rain ponchos be a worthwhile investment? It's hard to get perspective when it has been more or less raining here since 1 am, and the prospect of wet weather has never been so plausible in my Coachella planning.
Ponchos are 88 cents at Wal-Mart! I think I've already said that twice in this thread. Look over by the camping gear.
