J-Dawg did you book your vaycay yet? I'm off from the 7th to the 18th. Our rental out of SD is booked for a week beginning on the 10th, but can hang out earlier if you have the time off and want to squire us about your fine city.
So far I have the 11th through the 15th off. I'll be free to hang out the other evenings, but I don't think I'll be able to get any additional time off given that I have a big vacation planned in June. I'm picking Pea and Lahey up at the Airport on the 10th in the evening.
You guys are welcome to come earlier / stay longer and crash at my place the whole time, but I'll only be able to hang out during the evenings.
LAX at 1:30 sucked for me last year, though it wasn't LAX's fault so much as it was Avis Rent-A-Car's fault. I waited in line for over an hour at the rental car counter, which meant I didn't leave LAX until 2:40ish which led to even crappier traffic than I should have hit.
But yeah, if you're flying to LAX, then 4.5 hours from when you get off the plane to when you arrive at Coachella (including rental car bullshit, traffic, and whatnot) is probably a worst-case if you're arriving before 2:00pm. The earlier the better. My advice is to avoid LAX altogether and do SAN or some other airport.
I am really hoping I can find an edible burrito at Coachella this time around. The one I had last year was hands down one of the worst things I have ever put in my mouth. Didn't someone find a piece of plastic in theirs?
No need to find burritos at Coachella when we can buy them in San Diego before we go there. Trust me, if it's one thing San Diego knows how to do, it's burritos.
neat video, but all it does is piss me off more. just gimme the damn lineup already.
Yeah, I'm with you on this one. It's almost like they're trying to hide the fact that they don't have everyone signed yet. We don't even have a date yet, let alone the lineup. At this rate, we'll know who's playing Sasquatch before we know who's playing Coachella.
You peeps that plan on visiting me in San Diego before / after Coachella, I need to start booking days off... so let's start Dr. Garbanzouring out the details. PM me or e-mail me (PM me if you don't have my e-mail) and let's Dr. Garbanzoure out the optimum time to pick up burritos from Lolitas or Lucha Libre...
(The guest room is fully outfitted and the couch is as comfy as always.)
I'm debating whether to get a locker or not. It came in handy last year although I wasn't camping. Still, it would be nice to exchange sunblock for glowy shit in the evening without having to go through the security line in the evening.
Or an ancient relic burrito whose eater gains mythical powers.
If it's truly an ancient relic burrito then it must have the power of infinite preservatives. Which means that if you eat it, your body will never decompose after you die. In addition to whatever awesome powers it confers besides that.
J-Dawg needs to come out of hiding so I can start planning my travel arrangements. Shax, are you gonna be in San Diego with him before the fest? I'm considering flying in Wednesday evening instead of Thursday morning so we can get an earlier start on the road.
Yeah. I have to work it out with J-Dawg but we might be coming in as early as Monday or Tuesday. We'll likely be spending Wednesday night in Palm Springs with Nater so we can get to the polo fields when they open up.
I'm pretty flexible at this point - let me know what you're thinking for flights and I'm sure we can sort it out. The condo I bought has a spare bedroom as well as 2 parking spaces, so logistically it should be pretty simple assuming you're renting a car in SD upon arrival.
