I met Ian McDonald back in 1993 when I was preparing to volunteer with AVI, also in the Solomon Islands. He was a cool and inspirational dude! And realistic. Interesting reflecting on his comments here – the answers I gave then, and would give now, certainly fit well into the OK rationales. But he was (and clearly still is) always realistic about the inevitable challenges and difficulties encountered along the way.
