Light sticks are good. Can't cause a fire, will last all night if you get 
the right ones, and put off enough light to see whatever they're marking. 
White paper bags with a few yellow lightsticks in them might work nicely for 
lighting paths without looking too horribly mundane. I'll dig up a link to a 
place that has them for less than the usual insane local prices. Never pay 
more than $1 for a standard output 8 or 12 hour lightstick. I usually buy 
'em for around $5/dozen. A buck is normal for the high output 1 hour sticks 
that wouldn't do us any good.

Hmm, wonder if I could design a simple circuit board that would snap on top 
of a 9v and run a few LEDs, with a phototransistor to turn them off during 
the day. Too late to get a batch of boards made and soldered, but could be 
good for the future.

Reflective tape around trees/posts and reflectors on a steek are both good 
on the road in, too. People will have their headlights on so they'll at 
least have a chance to avoid hitting something. Reflective thumbtacks are 
great for marking footpaths. We need to do that in Swein camp, actually. 
Reflective rope would be awesome, but it's not easy to find and costs a
