I listened to the BBC this morning and apparently some British researcher
discovered that with every step we make a static electric charge as our feet
meet the ground so he's rigged up a battery charger and found he could charge
his cell phone battery on a recent 100 mile trek through the desert.
And I had my leaders convinced they couldn't bring eletronics on hikes!
