A  bit more about the solar system used to light the basecamp at Nam Sabi (see Basecamp). Made locally, output for three light bulbs, and apparently light enough that it could be carried with a small solar panel five miles out into the forest. Need a spot open enough for the solar panel to work; edge of the Hway Taung Kaw (Thawtan stream) worked nicely. Big step forward for fieldwork in remote areas.
