Power Supply

Look into film solar panel rolls for powering notebooks:

They are $200 but possibly 1 or 2 can be donated. They work in low light conditions (clouds/rain) and fit into a large backpack for transport. Connect them to a charge controller:

this make sure higher voltage does not boil your battery away. for this setup, a morningstar sunsaver-10 is the ticket. Add one laptop battery, and a small inverter like for a car lighter plug, and you have a 5 9's power system for a laptop.

Furthermore, if solar is not sufficient at any given period, the same power system can be recharged or run by a vehicle, the voltages are the same.

Weather Proofing

You may be interested in something like this, light, hard plastic, waterproof, carry handles. Made for easy setup and teardown.

Also the obvious:

  • Put notebooks etc in large zip-loc bags. Will probably cause overheating. Careful.

Audio

Any kind of windscreen over the camera mic would minimize the wind noise which there is a LOT of on the livestream, making it impossible to hear most of the time if there's a breeze in the treeze. Here's some cheap DIY solutions for a deadcat (furry windscreen):
