    How far?

    Well, it had to happen.
    The obligitory "How far are you from the 2010 Ecamp? camp site?"

    http://www.google.co.uk/maps/ms?msa=...54a2c68dc3f90f

    Google suggests two routes:
    370 or 290 miles away ;D

    What do you care what other people think! - Richard P. Feynman

    A person needs only three tools in life: WD-40, duct tape and a hammer. If it doesn't move and it should, use the WD-40. If it moves and it shouldn't, use the duct tape. If either doesn't work, use the hammer.

    Well the 2 Scots who posted here, were never going to be near it!!! One Escouter is just down the road, so yes people are near it.

    It isnt the centre of England, but its still central, and left a bit.

    You have the chance to sample some beautiful countryside, Snowdonia, Caernafron Castle, the delights at Conwy, the list goes on

    132 mi – about 2 hours 30 mins

    However I think I'm going to have to miss this one, I went to Wales 3 times last year and have a holiday lined up there in the Summer, Plus I am already struggling to fit in all the other Scout Camps I'm supposed to be doing this year

    That's what I thought when Willesley was in the running but it's holding a huge Beaver one-to-one camp that weekend so we wouldn't want to be there!

    144 miles for me

    155 miles criss-crossing Wales, or 187 via England (but half an hour quicker!)
