Hey there, welcome to ePlaya!
When I was a kid I used to pray every night for a new bicycle.
Then I realized that the Lord doesn't work that way so I stole one and asked Him to forgive me

Welcome to Eplaya. I was 55 at my first burn. Burning Man makes you young. You have plenty of time to get prepared and get excited. Read everything twice. Make lists. Amass a huge pile of otherwise worthless burner gear. Can't wait to hug you in the dust.
