Connecting with your local Arizona burners is a really smart idea. Glad to hear you've been reading a lot.
Attending alone can be quite freeing if you are handy with a hammer & good stakes; you end up with neighbors regardless. Gifting massage is an excellent idea; some vinegar-water wash first and a good moisturizing agent and you're good to go. (Lots of camps might be interested in having an LMT, btw, but there is more freedom in being independent).
