Out of Towners

Fri, Sep 11, 2009 at 5:58 PM

Every year I talk to people who tell me they road tripped from great lengths just to attend the fest. So, I figured this could be a nice way for people who are traveling here for the weekend to get in touch with locals to hang with, answer questions, or help assist in couch surfing.

    I'm coming in from Denton and am fucking stoked. I went three years back and had a blast. I've also gone to coachella the past three years in a row. This lineup is so amazing and so cheap.

    I've got a buncha friends that live in Austin so I've got a couch to sleep on. Who knows what's going on after the fest?

    I'll be coming in tonight from Houston. I have a place to stay, but I'm coming alone so it'd be nice to find people to hang out with.

    Yes, we should keep this thread alive for 2010. I'll be flying from DIA to DFW, either that or driving the 15 hours! I know Austin's areas fairly well though so it won't be a problem, plus you've got great people living there so it's hard to run into trouble. I remember everyone at the fest was so nice last year, great great atmosphere.

    I am coming in from Houston and know Austin pretty well on account of visiting often. As of now, it looks like I am going alone because my GF and I split up. I am wondering if there are any single women from Houston that are thinking of going but may not want to go alone..... I am officially on the market now.

    I am coming in from Houston and have had my reservations at the La Quinta for a couple of months now. Anyone willing to crash on the floor can hit me up. We would love to have you there, as long as you don't suck or something. We'll be partying our faces off and having a blast. The hotel is literally a one minute walk from the festival. If any of you guys are interested just hit me up. Also, the place is within easy walking distance of 6th, so the nights will all end there with drunken stumbles back to the room. Holla!!!!
