As a former "under age burner" the only advice for you is, don't be an idiot, keep your common sence and enjoy the experience.

What happens when we do not use a gift we were blessed with. Any gift really, such as painting, drawing, writing, things of that nature? Can a gift as such suddenly vanish from your body? Can we lose interest in a gift we were blessed with? Is it cheating the world if we do not use the gift we were ...

I just dont agree with people going to Burning Man *purely* to get fucked.. or druged up, and to party... it changes the whole course of the event.

Of course there will be some of that going on, even between us die hard artists, but that is not the SOUL reason we are there.

Cluetards and newbies are gaining the upper hand. Unfortunately, the two seem to be fusing into the largest demographic attending the event (> 50%).
