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.

Andy :-)

If you have one of those fancy phones and a good allowance of internet usage you can actually turn your phone into a wireless hotspot, routing your Pc/webcam via that.

Why not just use one of those tiny camera's that transmit the signal (on 2.4 Ghz) to a base station receiver then link this to a lap top and post it on you tube, both the camera and RX run off a 9v external battery....I bought one for on board boat shots about a year ago....cost 19 inc p&p from Hong Kong, Signal range is approx 1km on a greenfield site :-)) Would be the most economical way of getting some video on t'interweb.

Scoop
ps Don't ask as I can't remember who the supplier was...got it off eBay, there are now some UK based sources of this type of equipment, again on eBay.

Eyy up. I couldn't remember my old login so here I am!
Hoping to convince Dad to come to Wicksteed this year, perhaps for a camp over too?
Any details would be useful on the camping side, I know its probably on here somewhere but still, if you're feeling kind... :)

Hi Sally nice to see your back on here XXX
I paid 20.00 per night thats for a pitch. There is no difference if your on your own or lots more in your tent it's still 20.00.
They have opened some nice new ish Loes on site which makes life a bit essayer.
I hope you can make it along as we had a brilliant time on Saturday BBQ and lots of boating two. If you can make it you can have a go with my fishing boat if you want. Tell Dad to bring his lecy boat.

He was down Westport Lake in Stoke the other weekend according to Russ (6705russell), so he's still about. I've not personally seen him for a while.
