Instant alert idea?

 · 
Posted: 30.07.2020  ·  #1
I was just thinking..... having arrived in Kenmare a couple of hours ago, we were blessed to grab the last but one space along by the water. (Admittedly, a few have since parked way down nearer the bend making things tricky for cars each way, hopefully that won't give rise to negative publicity).
Anyway, this has got me thinking. Would it be handy to have some sort of instant messaging set-up, a bit like neighbourhood watch I suppose, where any user could post an instant message to others, eg: 'road blocked outside Bantry', or 'no space left in Kenmare' We're not all on FB, but we all have mobiles. I'm not a tekkie, maybe it's not even possible, but I'm just so relieved to have an idea at my age, and I couldn't help telling you all.

A MC Whatsapp group and people invited, users could alert others to a wide range of issues on the road, in an instant.

No thanks!!!

8000 people sending in messages............ People replying...... People chit chatting....... A small WhatsApp group is bad enough. 🥴

A simple SMS group would be the way to go, it can also be setup so no one needs to know each others phone numbers. It would cut down messages to important ones only.

Has anyone considered the old-fashioned system involving tin cans connected by lengths of string? It worked for me and my pals many years ago....

Or you could set up some sort of Internet forum were people could post up to date information. You could call it motorhomecraic or something similar.
