Geophysics in the Tropics

I’m packing up for a field stint in the tropics, trying not to zap zebras while imaging the subsurface. While chatting with colleagues over lunch, she advocated for packing evaporated milk to mix with boiling water when consuming antimalarial medication, because “the ants float on the top and you can scoop them out.”

Now I’m curious: what goes on the must-pack list for geoscience fieldwork in the tropics?
