Hello Freakazoids

Ok... so.... I'm joining this community because I plan on going to my first Burning Man next year. I know I know... I'm a slacker, but I've gotta good excuse. I've been attached to Oregon Country fair for the past 11 years. So I could never afford the two. But next year I'll skip OCF if I have to. I WILL be at Burning Man.
But I've got a few questions:
How kid friendly is it? I've only seen a few pics with wee children. My son's 13.
How wheelchair friendly is it? My son's got a power chair. Where will we charge it?
I want to bring him, but I don't want the chair to be downer for either of us. And I want him to be able to do his own thing if he feels the need. At OCF, he's at the point where he takes off and hangs out with kids his own age. I just wanna make sure he has a beautiful experience as well as I.

Greetings, hallo, bonsoir to all! This was my first year at burningman & i was so overwhelmed & distracted by all the amazing stimulus that i completely missed the LJ Camp. That won't happen next year! I love reading about everyone's experiences....and if anyone knows of Decompression events happening in LA, please share!

This is me & my boy by one of the lovely random sculptures we came across while riding waaaay out on the Playa by moonlite:

We were very lucky to have found a space to observe the burn that was about five rows back from the inner circle. These photos were taken by my son, Dream. One of the most incredible photos he got was right after they raised the man's arms. Almost immediately, one of his arms went dark. Dream was able to capture the man with both his arms raised and lit for the few seconds it remained in that state. Click on the link below to see that and other burn photos.
