THE RIDE OF PASSAGE
Imagine arriving at BRC knowing that your new shimmering Playa Bike is already waiting for you in camp.
Camp Stella has spent months creating the ultimate Playa Bike. This durable cruiser features a detachable front basket, superbright LED lights, a bell and a one-of-a-kind custom paint job by San Francisco artist Ube Urban. The frame is a sparkling swirl of sea foam green and blue with a dusting of glittering gold.
But perhaps the best part is that we will deliver the Ride of Passage to the playa for you.
Raffle tickets are 2 for $10 (odds are 1 in 500) or 5 for $20 (odds are 1 in 200). Winner will be announced on July 28th.
Photos and Tickets: http://bit.ly/Ride0Fpassage
For the last 9 years, Camp Stella has provided a GLBT-friendly clean and sober home, an AA meeting space, and a throw down party for BRC's entire sober community.

What are Hokey Spokes?
Hokey Spokes Hokey Spokes are transparent "blades" that attach to your bicycle spokes. As these blades spin during riding, a computer inside the blades modulates the internal LED lights so that design images and custom text appear.
The user can decide how many spokes in a variety of colors they want to place on the bicycle wheel. Up to 6 "Blades" can be placed on each wheel. The more blades, the more visibility and persistence of vision at lower speeds. 2 Blades/Wheel look good, 3 Blades/Wheel look great, and more than three look amazing. The rider above has 3 Blades/wheel. In real life, they look even better! See Order Page.
Hokey Spokes are designed so that they fit virtually any mountain or road bike with a wheel diameter of 24" or greater. Hokey Spokes can be used on front and back wheels at the same time.
Each Hokey Spoke contains a number of designs and messages. The blades can cycle through all the designs or can be set to play a custom text message all the time. Play mode is selected by using one of the waterproof keys located on any blade.
Now our Rainbow Hokey Spokes are available for only $19.95 for a limited time

K-12 schools and other public agencies "retire" a significant amount of property and durable goods each year. Asset reallocation is a large and complex issue for these agencies nationwide. These assets may include: classroom furniture and fixtures, instructional materials and supplies, lab equipment, physical education equipment, computers/technology, foodservice equipment and supplies, vehicles (cars, trucks, buses and other heavy machinery), office furniture and equipment, maintenance and custodial equipment, etc.
InterSchola provides a model designed to eliminate the headaches associated with surplus disposal by finding buyers for these valuable assets. On behalf of our Clients, InterSchola manages the auction process from start-to-finish, in compliance with complex legal Education Code that allows education institutions to sell their surplus in a public auction environment. eBay provides an ideal marketplace.
When such goods are designated as "surplus", a school administrator is charged with disposal of the existing items to make room for new items. Though a good portion of this surplus has not reached the end of its usable life, currently, there are few venues where schools/districts can find sufficient value in the retired goods to make it worth their while to find an alternative for disposal other than expensive warehouse storage or the local landfill.
Buyers can use the website to locate items by asset category, and view past auctions, current auctions and upcoming auctions. Buyers can also access the InterSchola eBay store at http://stores.ebay.com/interschola, and sign up to receive notifications of items that will be available soon at http://interschola.com/join-newsletter.php .
InterSchola is a San Francisco Certified Green Business, and so far has brought back almost $10 million to schools and public agencies! In addition to providing this income, InterSchola has diverted over 10 million pounds from landfills! By completing the manufacturing cycle, InterSchola demonstrates a commitment to the "cradle to cradle" paradigm for using existing resources.

Playa Staples from the Iron Monkeys
We have had such phenomenal success the past 3 years, so the Iron Monkeys are again selling Playa Staples to help raise funds to build more cool stuff with metal. Playa Staples are hand-forged, square stock steel tapered to points at each end and bent into a 'candy cane' shape. When hammered into the ground they lay flush with the playa and will not trip or skewer people like that unsafe rebar stuff. They enter the playa easily and stay secure until it's time to go. Playa Staples are removed quickly by simply levering them straight up. They've been around since 2003; are time tested, and burner approved (over 7000 sold, over 2000 made and sold in 2010 alone).
- Regular Playa Staples are roughly 10" on one side and 6" on the other, with 1-1/2" spacing in the center, and are made with 3/8" square stock. These are best for tents, carports and smaller structures.
- Large Playa Staples are roughly 15" on one side and 8" on the other, with 2" spacing in the center, made with 1/2" square stock. These staples are designed for use on large structures (domes or tie downs for things that require a more solid anchor).
If you have any questions please let me know (email@example.com). Special orders (sizes and styles) are available. Cash, check and CC via Paypal accepted.
How much is shipping you ask? Thanks to the wonder of 'one price' boxes from USPS, we ship everything Priority Mail.

ego assassin latex design
The name "ego assassin" refers to the philosophy that you can remake yourself into any person you want to be, but only if you can set aside all preconceived notions about who you are. Latex, like a second skin, is the perfect medium for this transformation. It allows you to become any character or creature you’d like to be.
ego assassin, based in Toronto, Canada is owned and operated by James Hagarty, a graphic designer and screen printer, and Slinka, a former fetish model. ego assassin's signature style focuses on colorful, wearable pieces that serve as a platform for their distinctive printed graphics. Design influences and inspiration come from spy movies, concept art, comic books, and custom motorcycles. Many of the prints are inspired by vintage woodcuts, classical Japanese paintings, and Native American art.
Their latest collection of heavy rubber armored fashions, titled "Survival", evokes post-apocalyptic Mad Max fantasies and are practically made for the playa.

I love to create anything and everything: clothing, feather earrings, feather accessories, wire wraps, beaded and hemp jewelry, and even paintings and photographs.

I love to give new life to forgotten or cast aside objects- it's good for the soul and Mother Earth.

PlayaMates is a line of wearable Art, created for, and inspired by the annual Burning Man Festival. By burners and for burners, we seek to create unexpected fashion for your world! PlayaMates.com or PlayaMates on Facebook.
Custom skirts and accessories made of pompoms and whimsy.
POOFskirts are made of brightly colored fluffy puff balls, individually secured to keep the pattern in place, and fastened to a comfortable leather belt. Just the slightest movement will cause the skirt to dance around your body in hypnotic fluid motion. Each skirt and fun accessory is made by hand, by me, with tons of love. Though these items are labor intensive, they are well worth it!
The hem of a POOFskirt is incredibly flexible, allowing for easy sitting, bike riding, dancing and lounging. It twists into a figure eight while storing and can wrap tight against your body for ease in the potties (so it won’t touch anything!), and springs right back into shape when let go.
Matching pompom hair falls, wrist cuffs and thigh highs available too.
I LOVE custom orders. With many colors of poofs to choose from (the green being UV reactive) and endless pattern possibilities, we can create an amazing, one of a kind playa outfit for you.
Bouncy, fun, flirtatious and playful - these skirts get everybody's attention.

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:
• Green 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:
Solar and wind energy
Specialized equipment and crews

We are long time burner as a “profession” and are commercial insurance brokers for fun. We have experience in providing General Liability insurance for burner events- which is usually required by the event sponsors, building owners/landlords or property owners. 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.

OUTLAW ARCHITECTS LLC
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.

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 :)

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

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)

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.
