    We'll be holding a virtual Newark on CCS & CPL to share your 'live' pics of stoves in flame & lamps alight.

    The Lake Pepin 3 Speed Tour, also in May, is doing the same thing.

    Would a Zoom or Skype video meeting / conference be worth looking into?

    Any thoughts ...

    Zoom is the plan. Will be doing some tests shortly, as well as on here & CPL the old fashioned way.

    @Spiritburner ,

    Ross,

    This is a great idea! Sweet Bride and I would love to attend! Would you want attendees to make short videos, of, say an overnight camp, and stitch them all together for Zoom? Personally, I'd love to follow in @redspeedster , Gary's footsteps, but Sweet Bride would slap me silly........!! ;) :lol: (VERY funny, Gary!) :lol: :lol: :lol:

    Since all our upcoming jobs have cancelled, we are definitely available to attend, and would love an overnight to enjoy tenting, stoving, a good lantern, and some fun comestibles!! Please clarify if you want videos, or just photos, of such a camp. Thanks, and again, excellent idea! God Bless!

    Every Good Wish,
    Doc

    True. It gets perched on stoves of all fuel types. Most recently it’s done a stint on woodburners, hence the current ‘patina’.

    Zoom has soooo many settings that each experience with it can be quite different from another experience.

    I have used Zoom with people all over the globe.
