Super pickle, welcome to eplaya. Put on your 'big girl panties' and dig in. It takes a lot of research and gumption. You're the right age to figure it out. Read all of the info available on the BM page. (Beginner stuff). Contact your local burners and join in. You have plenty of time to make connections, help with projects and get ready. The videos show only the beautiful youngsters but the older crowd brings it.

Hi Paul and welcome to eplaya.
Did you put on your big girl panties yet? Just wondering.
You will by no means be the oldest on the playa. Keep in mind that this is a regular working city--albeit a tad crazier and artistic than most.
There are links in my signature below. Check out the First Timer's Guide and the Survival Guide. They may be a year or two old, but the information is all accurate.
See you in just 11 short months.

Then I realized that the Lord doesn't work that way so I stole one and asked Him to forgive me

There are camps for people with your attributes. I'm sure you'll be welcomed there with open arms.
