As far as I am concerned the ham camping long weekend we attended was a success. It is held at a large camp site in the North of Holland (camping 't Vlintenholt in Odoorn), and there are some 400 hams with their families every year. From the Eindhoven region there were 5 caravans, 2 campers (including ours) and 12 tents, and there were a lot of people I know very well, so we had a lot of talking to do. The weather was nice enough to spend most of the day outside.
I had the time to read "Programming Python". After this I was not convinced why I should need it, maybe except to change scripts on UBUNTU (UBUNTU uses python all over the place). Sometimes you read the book on a programming language and you are hooked... I had that when I read "Programming Perl" and, come to think of it, when I read the book on Forth somewhere around 1967. Love at first sight... Python somehow fails to turn me on... And the name "Programming Python" is misleading. The back cover tells you that this is the most important reference for the language. Inside you are told that you first have to read "Learning Python". I will stick to Perl.
I did not make a lot of qso's, only some on 30 metres. But we had a lot of fun to build up and try out antennas. Most people don't appreciate how simple it is to put up a fishing rod with a piece of wire.
The camping has no facility for mobile homes to dump waste water. But there was fresh bread every day and a simple restaurant. We will be back...
