Guys, some news. Got this email from Enigmaticas son

"Hi Chris, this is Michael about dad's camera. I'm heading to Alice Springs for a few weeks tomorrow afternoon so I'll have my partner send it. I'll make sure it's packed super safe. I'll get some photos to you tomorrow so you can confirm its the right one. Just let me know the address thanks."

That was a week ago.. I've given him my address and sent a follow up email, but no luck

Will chase him again tomorrow. Hope this isn't a bad sign!

Alice Springs? Does he have any poop on Pine Gap?

Probably just a delay on a low priority task. Fingers crossed.

It's a sad thing really. The young man's father has died, sometimes its hard to sort yourself out when given the task of wading through a lost loved one's possessions...

Sad that everyone got excited that it had been found.

Can we all just bear in mind that, you know, a dude died.

I have a camera I can volunteer to send around next. It won't be a K1000, but it will be a K mount body. If that sounds good, I'll volunteer to start off the next camera adventure and send it to whomever is next in line.

Hi All

I've sent one more email - maybe the camera will be found, sent on and continue on its journey.

If not, I'm not going to chase this guy's son anymore. For one reason or another, I don't think he will be able to focus on the camera.

Cheers
Chris

The queue is here

petrol_pyro is the next person, I believe? Or did he accidentally get it before Enigmatica?

Give me a couple days to get things sorted on this. My home was broken into this morning (at 6AM...) and I woke up to a dude in my living room with an armful of cameras. I lost my Olympus M-1 and my K1000, the camera that got me started, for sure. I just need to do a few things today before I tend to this.

I do have a camera in mind. It's a Pentax, but it's not a K-mount. I think it will be interesting and no big deal if it goes AWOL. I just have to find it this week.

David
