Hello folks, can anyone please advise of a local b&b for the Weekend? don't have camping gear anymore, a pub / inn would be advantageous! O0 O0

I stayed at this place a couple of years back Ken and it was reasonable and quite close to the park, just a three minute or so drive. http://www.hawthornhousehotel.co.uk/findus.html

There's a travelodge down the road somewhere, and Northampton is crawling with them.

  Thank you for this Colin,

I have telephoned after looking at their site , and booked my room immediately for Saturday night.  Looks a good place and so near to the water.

Cheers    :-))

Hi Godo,

Hope you will come to the Mayhem annual get-together.  If you are staying in London, then the lake is up the main motorway called the  M1.  It's probably a two hour drive  (maybe local members will be more precise ? )

Saturday June 2nd and Sunday June 3rd are the days.  I have booked my Hotel and they say there are vacancies.  See my 1st letter above. 

Maybe other members will join me as it's only £37 each.

Regards

ken

Easier route from London is the A1 and A14. Two hours should be plenty as it's about a 90 mile trip.

I would imagine using a laptop with in-built webcam and stream the footage via a pre-paid internet access dongle?

Uploading streaming video via a prepaid dongle will be quite expensive (High Data Usage)
plus a Laptop Webcam is hardly a 'HandyCam' if you want to show the shenanigans on the lake.

You will need an hd webcam, a laptop and a wireless dongle / Mi-Fi. You will then need to be connected to an online cam service such as Youcams or Twitcam (for twitter users).

I can supply the webcams if you wish? With 12 meters of cable for walkies.

 An IP camera would be more ideal, but we wouldn't have an ethernet connection.
