GO! I'm 48 and my daughter and I went for our first time 2 years ago. Went last year too, and already have tickets for this year. BurningMan is your own experience, and the only way to truly know if you'd like it is to go. Obviously weather and camping conditions would rule out anyone who doesn't like to rough it, but if you can beyond that, you'll have the ride of your life. Yes, burners who were involved back at the beginning tend to think it's gotten too big and has changed too much from what it was originally. But that's how things evolve. It's an AMAZING experience and if you end up not liking it, well, you've gone and now you know! We've accumulated wonderful friends by going and we all stay in touch throughout the year. Keep me posted if you plan to go and check out eplaya.burningman.com message boards for more info! Hope to see you at home!
