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!!
I'm 41 my significant other is 47....
Names pinemom, but my friends call me "Piney".
