Use the board's search function to find the International Black Rock City Burner Hostel, it's run by hageymon. He also has a website and you can enlist his help, join his camp and learn a lot. But be good to him. He's a great guy who gives a lot and gets burned now and then. You don't exploit precious resources, so give some back to him.
Also, there's a regionals forum on this board, find Euro threads or start one of your own. But read a few first so you're not starting the 37th thread on one subject. It's so untidy.
