hi... so this thing... it's an rv-pool leaving from seattle and going to both days of coachella?

that sounds good. soooo... I would like to join as well. Provided I'm actually able to go to the festival.

Anyway, I have to ask a couple questions, of course:

1) age restrictions? This is important to ask you since I'm 17.

2) how do you feel about marijuana? this is probably more important than the age question.

so... yeah. Anyway, whether or not I can join you, or even go to the festival, good luck and have fun!

oh, and I went to coachella 2004. So, you know, I wouldn't be all freaking out and getting lost and shit.

love, PJP

For those of you who are not on my friends list - and are new to seattle_coachel, here is a short clip of some Coachella 05 footage. This all takes place outside the RV, in a series of bizarre interactions with the others in the RV Park.

COACHELLA 05 VIDEO

I will be re-evalutating the prices next week and posting them to the community. How it worked last year, was once we had the final prices, I asked that those serious about going, gave me a deposit of $100 of the total price to secure your spot. This helps to ensure that we aren't left in a position of scrambling around at the last minute due to last-minute cancellations (which we did have to do, but it was much more manageable).

So far there are only tentatives - so there is still space.

Cheers!

Subject:Transportation ideas between LA and Coachella/Indio, Cali?
Posted by:bendulum.
Time:10:36 pm.
I'm planning on taking a flight from Canada (Vancouver) down to LA and then somehow make my way to see Massive Attack and several other acts at the Coachella festival.

Does ANYONE have any advice for how to get between LA and Coachella ??

For anyone who replies, I am most thankful!

Anyone driving to Alex's from Bellevue? I have luggage. Needa ride.

ALSO. I know I'm supposed to DJ or some shit, but bringing my laptop/speakers is going to be a problem. My laptop is fuckered, for those not in the know, and needs an external monitor. CRTs are big, and space is probably going to be at a premium. If you guys are sure we can spare monitor space, and we definitely have someone bringing a monitor, then I'll do it. otherwise, boom box only.

I will bring my big ass boombox and my CDs, regardless. I suggest you folks bring your CDs, too.

And a random, but kinda relevant note is that I'm allergic to wasp stings, and have previously reacted by going into anaphylactic shock. Just a medical heads-up. Don't think I've been stung in about seven years, though.

Subject:Drinking and RVing...
Posted by:syren666.
Time:7:49 am.
Mood: excited.
I was trying to look up the laws, and so far only came across this...

California
The law is very strict about carrying alcohol or drugs in a vehicle whether the vehicle is on or off the highway. You must not drink any alcoholic drink in any vehicle.

A container of liquor, beer, or wine carried inside the vehicle must be full, sealed, and unopened. Otherwise, it must be put in the trunk or a place where passengers don’t sit. Keeping an opened container of an alcoholic drink in the glove compartment is specifically against the law.

In a bus, taxi, camper, or motor home, the law does not apply to non-driving passengers.

So it looks like the non-drivers can booze it up in the back in Cali, as long as the driver isn't drunk. I'll be looking into the other states too, and post them as soon as I can find them.

Trying to figure out when I should get on the Greyhound in Indio on Monday.

When are we going to be mobile that day? Noon? Later? How late do the concerts that any of us want to see go on Sunday? PLZ ADVISE!

Hey folks; Eliza here. AKA DJ Boushh, proprieter of the motherfucking jams.

I have a couple proposals. First of all, hands up those of you who want to see the new Hitchiker's Guide to the Galaxy movie. Alright, me too. It's out on the 29th, and I have a good friend in LA that I'd like to see it with. We should think about hitting that, if we have the time and inclination. Traffic would be a huge bitch, though.

You're right, HHGttG is a no-go. Too complicated.

Also, I'd like to stay in LA on our way back and then fly home on my own a few days later. This would free up some space in the RV for the long haul back to Seattle for you guys and whatever swag you get at Coachella; it would keep me from going insane from being cooped up with a bunch of people for so long (I like you guys, but I'm sort of nutty about being around people for too long, I'm going to be strung out from the crowds, and I don't want to be a downer), and let me spend some time with my friend down there. Since I'm not one of the RV drivers, it wouldn't affect the drive schedule.

I can get a greyhound from Indio to LA for $23, so we wouldn't have to battle LA traffic.

Indio to LA on the Greyhound is a go for me. Thanks!

Forcast according to Weather.com for Indio CA weekend of the festival...

AVERAGES
Hi 90°F
Lo 61°F


YAY! Coming from AZ, I feel right at home in this weather. If you have fair skin, remember that we are going to be in the sun for a lot of the day. Make sure you drink lots of H2O, and maybe bring a hat, or something to shade yourself. I will have to go through all my supplies from AZ...squirt bottles, personal hand held electric fan, sunglasses, hat, and lots and lots of sunscreen. Maybe even a parisol, although holding onto that while trying to dance doesn't sound like fun. Also don't forget to dress for the weather. If you decide to wear your vinyl pants, and end up passing out from heat exhaustion from drinking alcahol all day and dehydrating...we are all going to take naughty pics with you and post them on the internet...and they we'll point and laugh. :)

I will probably be outfitted in a wife beater, cargo shorts (lots of pockets for supplies), and steal toed boots (both comfie AND will keep my feet from getting stepped on during what I predict will be a rough crowd for NIN.)

10 more days!!!!!
