Over 50 camps?

Postby lynne » Sun Sep 23, 2007 12:40 pm

I'm looking to go to the 08 burn and am looking to join an over 50 camp. Do they exist? Any suggestions? I live in SF.

Yeah, the camp exists. In your imagination.

Sooooo...make it happen. Wrighting something out of (apparent) nothing is the ultimate magic.

Why would you want to segregate yourself from all the beautiful youth and vitality of the younger generations?
I camped with people this year whose age range was from 20 something to 70 something and had the best burn of my life!
BTW I'm 50 something

I've always thought that Burning Man would be a great place to go to die. But current events make it seem that you may have set the age limit a bit high.

now that IS funny, seems that yes, all age ranges are out there, but in my muddlings seems that for the most part, yes BM is older peeps...well, think about it...alot of people have kids, that they dont want to take, so they wait till the kids are older and pawn them off on the grandparents...to go.
Or they're younger and their still establishing themselves in a job,or still doing their college, so they cant take the time off PLUS afford the ticket/food/campgear/etc....

That was my excuse for 13 yrs...I watched from afar, raising my 2 kids by myself...hell I couldnt afford a ticket...not to mention leave 2 kids upon someones doorstep...for a week+

My first year 06' I applied for a scholorship and was awarded a 95.00 ticket.And joined a Theme camp.
This year I got married to a burner I met last year, bought our full priced tickets...gifted thoughs to our older kids to come, one just to watch the wedding...paid for our performers tickets...and my youngest(last in the house)14yrs old got a scholorship ticket(by herself). And we started a new theme camp losely based on the first theme camp. $$$$$$$$$$

Lots o $ goes into Burningman sometimes....I know you can do it losely for the price of ticket and bare minimums, but thats pushing it.
Not to mention if ya dont live as close as we do, there's travel expensences.............

Maybe thats why so many burners are older, takes awhile to save up!!
MU HAHAHAHA

I'm 41 my significant other is 47....

There's a Senior Burner Tribe on tribe.net. Maybe you want to talk to them.

This year I was not the oldest in camp, I came in second at 50. One of our newbs claimed Eldest at 64. But I can't imagine not hanging with the kids.

(No, they're not technically my kids, but we're some kind of mutant glob of family. Nice!)
These are not my fuckos.

huh

I'm 53, and the thought of finding a 50+ camp never crossed my mind...

I mean.. I realize that sometimes people don't get my references, but then sometimes other than just feeling old I have a ball explaining the reference. The wonder in the young one's eyes when they look at me and thing, "What is this old fart talking about !!!!"

Ahhh.. nothing replaces that kind of fun.[/code]
