Time To Burn

Called the must have app of 2013 by the Black Rock Beacon and SFGate! Back for 2014, with the freshest data around. Mmmm…smell the goodness! This the app that includes the survival guide, the What Where When information, the Rockstar Librarian Music Guide, a GPS enabled map of the city, camp listings, art listings, and your own personalized QR code so you can “bump” in the middle of the playa. No internet required, of course.

Lovingly brought to the citizens of Black Rock City, for free, by three people with huge amounts of talent, more than 30 years of playa experience between them, and never enough time on their hands! Remember: Safety Third and keep an eye out for petite beagles!

PlayaCompass

Black Rock City can be a confusing place. The Playa Compass is a virtual map and compass to guide you. Playa Compass understands the layout of Black Rock City and shows you where you are on the pentagon, helps you find your way back to where you left your bike, and helps you navigate back to camp when the dust kicks up on the Playa. Unlike your GPS, Playa Compass knows your Playa Address – how many feet you are from the Man, and at what angle or clock hour. When you are in the city proper, where camps are established, Playa Compass displays the street address of your current location. You can use Playa Compass to navigate to specific Playa Addresses, and to mark locations that you would like to return to.

Playa Compass does not require access to the Internet to function. In August of each year, the “Golden Spike” is set, determining where the Man will be constructed. Playa Compass will be updated at that time to initialize with the Man’s location. When you are not located at BRC, Playa Compass operates in a Demo mode, with your starting location marking the Man. Be sure your GPS is turned on- some devices require this as a separate action.

Burner Events

Burner EventsScheduling app for year round burner related events.  From Andrew, “If you sign up, you can “rsvp” to the event and other people can see that you will be there (of course, you can be anonymous in who you say you are) and also see what events other people are going to (by clicking their avatar).  You can print a schedule too – without needing to log in.”
