Our base camp set up was used on Long Caye in Glovers Reef Belize. This Island sits inside an Atoll 35 miles off shore. we made all our own power off to boulder 30 panels and an extreme 350 battery pack and integrated 400 watt inverter. With this kit we were able to power a laptop, charge camera batteries and power a satellite phone and internet port. The bulk of the trip hinged on this modest amount of equipment working well and it did.
Our mobile kit was a total necessity from the time we left the orphanage and made the 45 mile paddle to Belize. Here is a shot of our videographer Nicholas Laclair shooting from the support sailboat in the Gulfette outside of the Rio Dulce.
Our trips power needs lasted basically from November to February and Goal 0 made so many aspects of the trip possible from the base camp on a remote island 35 miles off shore to our mobile demands. We set out on our trip with a handful of goals in mind but the underlying theme was to raise money for Casa-Guatemala Orphanage and school. We couldn't have done that without the power created off our system. It allowed us to organize all the pre trip logistics and to document the whole trip.
This was about half of our mobile lab. This was the non pro kit. It was powered on two sherpa 50 battery packs and a nomad and two 100 watt inverters. We were able to charge and run everything seen here. We were also able to charge our videographers real kit which was even more important. Most of our trip was waterlocked and off grid so having our own power supply was key to making our project work.
One man show for Corridor and general water sports hobo. Not sure why I use the WE all the time. I should get some more people.
