More Rattan Counting

The field crews from the rattan survey (Where are Those Transects and Field Books) sent a lot of images together with their data files. The shots provide a good overview of what the inventory work in the Central Truong Son mountains was like.

There was, for example, a lot of slogging around to locate the transects,

some confusion trying to figure out the identity of all the different rattan species that were encountered,

the tedium of setting up a new base camp every night,

and the occasional bit of fun when the rain stopped and the transect passed through a nice, i.e. flat, piece of forest. These guys did an amazing job with this survey. Deep bows of gratitude.  [NOTE: I love the plastic sandals and the leech socks].

Wow! How did you got those pictures? You joined with them. Right?

I miss the forest so much. I feel very comfortable and fresh when I am in there. Don't think about the complex life, about the man... Only me with nature! I always have got 1 plastic sandal and 3 leech socks in my field bag. (^_^)
The last time when I went is 5 months ago. But now ... @_@
