Wth regards to the vest-there are other physio techniques that can replace the vest.
I've never used a vest myself, as we just don't have them over here. Instead we used something called the ABC technique or the Active Breathing cycle. We also have devices which you blow into such as the Pari PEP, the Flutter and The Acapella. Sometimes when my chest is bad, I revert back to the very old Percussion with the ABC technique, as I find this best for my chest.
None of these things need power, and you should be able to get information from your physio if you have one, as to what is available to you.
Going journying sounds very exciting-I hope you enjoy it!
The closest to wilderness I've ever been, is we went camping on a campsite, and our tent had plug sockets and a DVD player and the lot. Haha, I like my comfots far too much!
