Love the nickname.
There are a lot of Oregon Burners. I strongly recommend you meet your locals if you'd like to work with a nearby group.http://www.burningmanportland.com/
However, you needn't (necessarily) be local to a theme camp to join one. You can also peruse the 2013 Theme Camp forum or the Theme Camp list on the main site (check with them to see if they're coming back in 2013) and meet up with a camp on the playa.
When you have a choice, however, it can be reassuring to actually meet & chat with your fellow campers before you camp with them.
