Read the survival guide. Test your camp setup in advance. Bring water. Expect nothing.
It's going to be alright.

BTW - I am from the Denver area. Do you just show up and make friends? Where do you camp? How do you choose?

There's a lot of information in the Survival Guide, which is mandatory reading by the way.
There are tons of discussions on eplaya on this topic, use the "search" feature.
Some direct answers: Yes, you just show up and make friends!
You camp wherever you want within the city's camping areas, as long as it's not in a placed theme camp area. There are maps.
Choosing where you want to be is something you usually figure out after your first trip.

Check out "Stag Camp" for starters.

Do some web searching and/or search on eplaya for others from Denver that you can hook up with.

Bring good tequila.

Yeah, Patron or Herradura tequila, and camp near me and share.
It's going to be alright.

Check out Stag Camp. You have a home there. You must read the servival guide though and be self reliant. The thread for Stag cmp is getting rather long but you should read at least the first 2 pages and the last 2. But I recommend the whole thread if you have time. We are under 2008 theme camps

Do we have enough helpful answers for me to get snarky and recommend a Hitachi Magic Wand?

Just click your heels together three times and repeat "There's no place like home!" Make sure to enunciate well, as Nome isn't nearly as much fun...

Some people you can meet here.
Most people you'll meet out there.

Plenty of camping space outside of the theme camps.

How do you choose?
Anyone have an answer for that?
Some of my interests are obvious, but they keep shifting and I keep doing different things.
If you don't know, explore.
That's what it's all for.

check out www.coloradoburners.com and any of the dozen or so websites linked to that site. There is a huge party May 24th at the BomB Factory and that would be a good chance to meet Denver-Boulder -C-Springs folks. Apogaea, Colorado's regional burn, is in June. Volunteering as a greeter at Apogaea would be a great way to meet folks. (I just so happen to be the coordinator for Greeters!)

Welciome to Colorado, let me know if you have any questions!

You can join a group, then piss everyone off. Works the same as coming alone, except...drama!
