  1. From reading this thread and others, I've got the impression that a good monitoring set up would be to have 2 meters. A Victron/NASA type to tell you when to stop charging. And a Smartgauge to tell you when to start charging. This Balmar interests me, because it looks like it's a single unit which covers all bases (if it works as claimed). Can anyone recommend someone who could fit one for me? I had a look at the 'simple' installation instructions, and I might as well have been reading Russian!
  2. My copy of Another 60 Miles says it is BCN as far as Hednesford Basins to the North and Churchbridge Junction to the west. It states "Although the Staffs and Worcs Canal Co contributed towards the costs of building the branch it was still part of the BCN". If you want to be picky, you could say these parts are the Cannock Extension and the Churchbridge Branch, but they are part of what we now call the Hatherton Canal.
  3. I see @BlueStringPudding is a facebook friend of his. Can you confirm?
  4. I have 2 of those. Lovely bedtime reading! Thanks boss, I'm still not quite sure how any of this will work, but I'll be ready to help with the team!
  5. Hi Cap, I'm another worker who'd love to join your team. I also have a copy of the other 60 miles, but unfortunately, it's in my drawer at the office while I'm working from home. I may be of some use though...
  6. I'd also add that if this works, why not do it every week? There's plenty of people feeling a bit isolated at the moment Ba Dum Tish!
  7. This idea is not a lot different to our forum chat room, just with added video. The chat room used to be well attended and could get quite busy, but it's died a death. It's a long shot, but why can't we add video to our chat room on here? Simple solution: get a list of forum members who want to join and dm them the link
  8. What am I going to do with this pot noodle now?
  9. Thanks Sue. I'll look out for it.
  10. ok, but does that mean it's going to be published online or will it be only for participants?
  11. It will be 3 years this year since I joined in with this as a boater, so think I'll probably throw my hat in the ring again this time. I can't remember if it's possible to see the scoring system before officially entering? Is it online somewhere or do I have to pay my fee first? Thinking about where the accumulator sections are and which canals score in both directions.
  12. Interesting. Will there be an official cycling or walking entry this year?
  13. I may cycle it again this year and try and beat my mileage from last year. If I'm clever I can strategically moor my boat for the saturday night to sleep on, start from one of the railway stations and try and do most of the BCN over the 2 days, then finish at.... hang on, where's the finish?
