@Odd: See addition to my answer. I think those numbers indeed represent "too heavy and too large".

I don't have time right now, but maybe I'll come back and do the math to show the size and weight of batteries to match 1 liter of white gas, or "Coleman fuel" here in the US.

@Odd: Yes. As I said, batteries containing the same energy as typical chemical fuels would be both larger and heavier.

comment How much heat can a candle lantern provide while winter camping?
You can't use the R value of snow above the freezing point. It can insulate well, but acts as a essentially infinite heat sink at 32F (0C). Raising the temperature from 20F to 28F may be possible, but 32F to 40F is a whole different issue.

comment How do Plover sentinels give the “move out” signal?
It depends. Was this in a location with good cell coverage?

comment Is there a (long-distance-) trail without any available maps?
It's now been two days and the OP hasn't corrected or clarified the question at all, even though he was here only 5 hours ago. This could have been a good question, but is not in its current form. Since the OP is refusing to cooperate, it's time to close this failure and move on.

Then you should make it clear you are soliciting your services. I shouldn't have to ask to find this out. It puts your offer into a whole different light, and makes a huge difference, as there is little or no budget for the vast majority of trails. It also helps, especially when representing yourself professionally, to actually answer the questions that were asked. Your behavior here has so far been rather off-putting. Of course a professional needs to make a living, but the question was whether this was a professional or volunteer offer, so your answer is a bit rude.

comment What animal is making odd footprints and squeaking sounds under my guest house?
A better idea of size and stride distance would be useful, but possibilities include raccoon, possum, and porcupine.

Where is a reasonable work area for you? Are you expecting to get paid for this?
