None of our work would have been possible without our 1987 Toyota 4Runner. A mythical car that's taken us through some of Earth's least traversable parts. With over a million kilometers now, it's never needed a major repair and it's never failed us. A truly remarkable vehicle . . . from a truly remarkable corporation. Toyota Mexico serviced our old 4Runner and helped us secure a Highlander Hybrid as a new vehicle.

is the world’s most recognized brand in off-road products. The company designs, manufactures and markets off-road equipment and accessories. In 1994, Warn donated a winch that is still attached to the front of our truck and has unstuck it many a time, as well as helping local farmers, truck drivers or fellow travelers out of seemingly hopeless situations.
makes the Wayfinder series of digital compasses. Somehow they can also cram in an inside/outside thermometer, altimeter, barometer, and weather forecaster. PNI donated a model that's now more important than our speedometer.
Also many individuals have supported the work of the foundation and its members :-)
We'd also like to recognize helpful organizations.

there's no electricity! We use their service for roving internet.

We use their innovative printers, scanners and cameras to document the current imbalances in the world and share Canon’s hope of humanity living in balance.
has been the world leader in rugged computing since the concept was invented. Their machines are legendary and, more often than not, still running today. That's because you can drop, drown or even shoot them and they boot up, just the same. As you can imagine, we've tested this to the limit - in jungles, mountains and deserts.

With 30 offices worldwide offering 27/7/365 service, Ontrack can recover your 'lost' data anywhere and better and faster than anyone else . . . as they did for us!

is the world's leading developer and manufacturer of positioning, navigation, and guidance equipment. Magellan introduced the first consumer handheld GPS solution in 1989. Magellan donated a state of the art GPS satellite receiver to keep us on track!
is a Bali success story of webhosting and design. Using foreign and local knowhow, Candi cuts the cost of being on the web. The fact that you can read this is because of Candi.
says, 'You break it, we replace it . . . forever." You're never going to be able to break it! They make the most rugged lights and cases that work on mountaintop and ocean bottom. When we need to see or store we turn to Pelican.
