I had planned on going solo and then joined up with an established camp.
I'm so glad I did. I'm a bit of an introvert, so I think it would have been harder for me to reach out and talk to people without the camp interactions. And it turns out I love volunteering and helping out with events, so I will be doing more of that next year.

You know it's so interesting. I had zero problems getting on any art car I wanted. I'm a chick, but not a particularly good looking one, so that didn't have anything to do with it. I was really worried that it was going to be high school all over again where the cool kids get into the good parties.
If I saw a car that I wanted to get on, I walked over, complimented the driver on the vehicle and then as they were about to leave, I asked if they minded if I joined them for a bit.
I never was turned down. But people can be super obnoxious. One of the boats I was on stopped at the potties, and 10 europeans just jumped right on in front of the driver. Didn't ask, just swarmed the ship like rats.
