2011 marks the seventh successful year of Advantage Flight air service to Black Rock International Spaceport. Our Reno Air Shuttle offers up to six flights daily between Reno-Tahoe International Airport and the playa before, during, and after the event in Turbo Stationair aircraft.

Advantage Flight offers more than safe, dependable passenger service. For the past six years, the Shuttle transported crews and construction materials as the City was built. During the event, the Shuttle also accommodated supply requests, bringing in everything from airline-delayed baggage to tools to aircraft tires. We’re ongoing contributing participants in the event community, and we look forward to welcoming you aboard!

BayNVC is the largest learning community for Nonviolent Communication (NVC) in the world, with about 6,500 people participating in our programs each year.
Our mission is to create a world where people have the skills to create peace. BayNVC offers NVC training, mediation and consulting services to individuals, organizations, and governmental institutions.

NVC was originally developed by the humanistic psychologist Dr. Marshall Rosenberg in the 1960s. NVC consists of a set of practical skills, built on a foundation of self-awareness, that help people shift from blame and judgment into empathic connection. NVC is at heart a deeply spiritual practice aligned with the understanding of nonviolence held by leaders such as Martin Luther King and Mahatma Gandhi.

Our work, while mostly focused the SF Bay Area, has also reached to people from 46 states in the U.S. and from more than a dozen foreign countries. Our staff has facilitated peace-building efforts and conflict transformation on five continents.

Bently Biofuels Company
Green Your Burn

Want to lessen your environmental impact for this year’s burn or just tired of that diesel exhaust stank? There is an option and it’s called – Biodiesel!

Bently Biofuels (bentlybiofuels.com) is a burner owned Nevada Company. We have been delivering biodiesel (B99.9) to the playa since 2006. Our biodiesel plant (the only one in the state) is a couple of hours south of the beautiful Black Rock Desert. We make biodiesel from recycled cooking oil in the most sustainable way we know how and we only sell highest quality fuel tested to meet ASTM standards. While we may be close, it is not easy coordinating logistics on the playa. In order to help with planning please let us know your needs before July 31st. We will try to accommodate last minute requests but just like in the default world — first come, first serve.

To set up a playa delivery contact Carlo Luri (email preferred: carlo.luri(at)bentlybiofuels.com). Or by cell 775-720-0754.

For fuel on the way to the burn (in Reno visit Allied Washoe http://tinyurl.com/RenoBiodiesel or in Minden, NV search Google Maps for “Bently Biofuels Outpost”)

DustWorks seeks to build sustainable economies of scale through a logistical model that empowers Theme Camps to undertake collectivized infrastructure. By making use of shared essential resources such as electrical power and heavy equipment, DustWorks establishes best practices for theme camp organizers and moves individual camps toward a fundamental understanding of radical collaboration. While respecting individual autonomies and localized culture, we create large-scale efficiencies, thereby engendering conscious use of non-renewable resources.
Using a small number of theme camps (15-25) as test subjects this first year, DustWorks will apply the notions of collectivized power, heavy equipment support, and centralized infrastructure to create a sustainable and efficient playbook of best practices that can be applied to camps of any size. By stressing cooperation and collaboration in manpower, funding, and logistical coordination, DustWorks can help to weave individual clusters into sustainable camps, inefficient camps into coordinated villages, and disconnected villages into a vibrant and healthy city.

Services DustWorks can provide to theme camp organizers:

– Turnkey power grids for theme camp villages
– Heavy Equipment support for theme camp and non-honorarium projects
– On-site maintenance of equipment
– Recommendations and consultations for carbon offset plans, project logistics, and best practices
– Referrals to other providers of sustainable and scalable infrastructure, including:
Temporary structures
Solar and wind energy
Specialized equipment and crews

We do all other insurance such as workers comp and property, but for our burner friends, they usually need General Liability as a top priority for special events, especially if there are things getting burned, climbing art or flame effects. As brokers, we can shop among many insurance companies for best coverage and rates.

My-Burning-Desires.Com is an Extremely Unique store for Uniquely Extreme People!

My-Burning-Desires.com is not just a store, it’s a community project and we welcome you to become a part of it.

What we are trying to accomplish is to connect talented people and artists with a craft or art they wish to sell, with people who are looking to own and appreciate that art or craft. The sale of those items goes back to the original artist and any additional profit from the sale goes back to our Super South Florida Burner Community to help fund our Lumionous Arts Foundation, The Nautibus project, and other great artististic and social endeavors.

We want to create a winning synergy for all that is involved-

-The artisan that sold their item and is supporting their craft.
-The purchaser that bought that unique item that they now love
-The website that has provided the forum to sell the item and is able to support itself and grow
-The burner community that gets additional funds to support their local projects.

Our aspirations and wishes for the site are for it to grow and evolve into a philanthropic business that is able to seek out and support many artists, Burning Man events and other great causes beyond our local community.

ah-hem. I am licensed General Contractor in the State of California. My background is in Art and Architecture, with both a Bachelors and a Masters Degree from an Ivy League institution in Architecture. All of my projects involve hiring Burners- most notably converting a off the grid nudist colony in Maui into famed photographer David LaChapelle’s artist farm/compound…here I hired (and lived with), and put up with 5 of the worst DPW metal shop workers in excruciatingly gorgeous, and demanding circumstances and converted this hippie hell hole into an artist’s mecca . Recently I was a project manager for Temple 2010 in charge of “anchoring” thanks to 2 of my undergrad colleagues, Rebecca Anders and Peter Kimmelman, temple builders.

Playa Power
We design and sell solar (and wind) equipment for power burning man camps. We’ve been powering our own camp(s) with solar and wind for four years, and we also work professionally designing and installing solar (in Colorado) in the default world… we know what works, what can and cannot be done with solar (given a budget) at BRC, and where to get the parts (we sell the solar parts, and can recommend places to get the LED’s, low power lights, sound systems, etc…).

And… we’re on the playa, so if something goes wrong out there, there’s a little better chance of some troubleshooting than if you buy from a random internet store :)

Plumb Fabrication

I have a small shop in Reno Sparks area. This is the closest big city on your way to the burn. Last year I was part of an art car building project. I have worked on a few different projects that went to the burn. I am going to offer my shop and skills in fabricating, to help you build your art car, then store it until the burn. You can just show up in Reno pick up your art car and maybe your camping gear. I can make sure that your car is ready to run and have done any of the repairs and or modifications that you need done. I used my shop to help build an art car that went to the burn in 2010. Please have a look at the website. The art car has also become a secondary use vehicle, sign car. Both web pages are found on the http://plumbfabrication.com/ page. Have an idea we can help you make it so. Thanks Damian call  775-722-2843  or email thru the web page please.

Water for all your playa needs. We deliver directly to your camp, tank rentals, shower rentals. This is our 12th year at Burningman and our 18th year providing logistics to isolated sites. The sales of water are limited to 4 truck loads this year with the funds going to offset the costs of our camp and our public bar.

Just drop an email for more information. Also – our rates have been cut since we now have a closer certified source for water. looks like 1.00 a gallon delivered to your camp. We live in Winnemucca and work all over the planet but BM always brings us back to the desert in August.

Thanks again for helping us and our camp Douglas & Dave @ PWI Water

Secret Kitchen
My title is “Jewish Mom and Chef”. I have done various catering gigs (weddings, corporate events, baptisms, etc) on my own from concept to completion. I have run crews of 6-10 people and made (and stuck to) small budgets. I have built kitchens in the desert for various artist groups for Burning Man. This last summer I was the Executive Chef for a crew of 200 construction workers and support crew for a large scale art project. I cooked for 200 or more people three times a day. I had vegetarians, vegans, gluten-free and nightshade sensitive people to accommodate. I made everything from chicken matzoh ball soup to fish tacos with handmade corn tortillas (in a 10-hour, 40 mph dust storm) to smoked and pulled pork with my (almost) famous bbq sauce. I served quinoa pastas, raw kale salads and heirloom tomatoes.
Each time this meant setting up a kitchen for two weeks (or more!) in a desert, run on generators, and cooking, cleaning, and keeping the food coming. (I have set up kitchens with running water, recycling, and full refrigerators out there, I’m not afraid of a challenge. I like to think of it as Hedonism under Fire.) I have also cooked for artist’s groups at Coachella and smaller events.
At the moment I run a small underground restaurant out of my warehouse bi-monthly. I am known for my soups and indoor fire performances. (www.secretkitchenoakland.com)

Welcoming Freedom
I help people to reach a deeper awareness of their environment, and the possibilities around them. I do this by using The Sedona Method to assist clients in releasing any ‘stuckness’ that they may be experiencing in their mind, emotions, or bodies.

The Sedona Method is an easy to learn, yet powerful set of self-inquiry techniques.

This is a useful practice for anyone in overload or just looking to more deeply experience and enjoy their time on the Playa.
