Hi All

I have been hoodwinked into going to Africa at Xmas time to light a hospital with solar. The funding just came in and so its a done deal. I have yet to get all the requirements the place will need but when it gets into my hands I will post the requirements they will need and will take all suggestion that everyone posts. With falling solar prices panels should be low but that is the least of my worries because I am told it is a very long way to town and have to deal with the black market. FUN FUN The most common thing I think will be only car batteries to work with,BUMMER. The name of the place I am going is Maar in South Sudan . By road 3400 miles to the coast and to live there Lions every day, snakes all the time and spiders along with many other crawly things and they all Bit. Well headed for Cassidy,Bc,Ca and have a week to get there, New motor home to deliver. Will post when I get more info.

Very impressed Doug!

How long a stay?
Let me know if there's a way to get a 'care package' send over there for you.

Biggest item I've heard, from those who have gone before was;
A good water purifier!

Hi ODR
Thanks for the offer but the sun, a old pair of socks and a clear plastic bottle will work just fine and is something less that I have to pack. LOL As far as how long, I don't know as yet 2 to 4 weeks a guess.

Hi Dave

Thanks

Just sayin' think about it.
There are a few things that could be shipped..
Maybe to the Airport that you land at and grab it there..

Believe there may be a few others that would assist..

Would be happy to add the personal water purifier to the package!
Socks, plastic.. yuck.. LOL

Hi Tinman

I'm going to find out more on Sun or Mon.
I did learn I will have to get a BUNCH of shots and I need a Visa.
That's all know for now.
