I have two friends who are thinking of coming to Burning Man next year.
I say "coming" because I'm assuming they'd come with me. I might be wrong on that, but it's been implied in the conversations.
Which panics me.
(Doesn't take much some days, I know, but still..)
First of all, I love them both dearly and they're both easy going so I'm sure they'd get along, but... they don't know each other... what if they didn't? One's a long time friend of mine from waaay back in the day and the other is a current co-worker I've known for about five years.
Second of all, how would we all get down there? Three of us and all our stuff won't fit in a car. Would we rent a vehicle of some kind? Go with Connor in his RV thing?
Plus, what if they don't like it? What if we annoy each other? What if they rely on me? What if they want me to show them around etc.? WHAT IF I'M THE EXPERT? I'M NOT THE EXPERT!!! I've only gone twice! Both times I've gone with Connor who knows how to get the rebar into the playa... how to get the rebar out of the playa at the end of the week when it's stuck... knows how much things have to be secured against the wind... what a dust storm can do to a tent.. your eyes... I can't take care of two people who've never been before... who will take care of me if I need it???? AND HOW WILL WE GET ALL OUR BIKES THERE OMG I CAN'T HANDLE IT!!!!
So...yeah... it's stressing me out a bit.
And I'm going to have to let that go...
