I've added nomolos and Kickman to the list! Keep them coming!

I should be hearing back from Eric in the next day or two, so hopefully the repair phase will get underway post haste, and we can get this project rolling in a forwardly direction. Thanks to everyone for your interest! (Including those who've read but haven't commented!)

Everyone, check the itinerary on Page 1! I'll add you if you PM me, but it's better to post here so nobody gets the impression that someone's cutting in line.

Film is about patience, so be prepared to exercise a lot of it as this camera may rack up more miles than the Voyager space probe.

Cheers!

I'm excited to participate! My first Pentax was a K-1000 back in the day, which I somewhat quickly upgraded to a Super Program because of its much smaller size & weight.

I'm not seeing your name in the list of transactions. Did you go through paypal or 2checkout?

I'd like to suggest an optimization to the tour schedule which will reduce the total number of days in transit by roughly a month, plus you'll be able to save on shipping costs thanks to a reduced number of international/intercontinental pairings.

The new list seeks to follow the original order as closely as possible.

I'm assuming 2-day delivery within the US, Canada, and Europe, 3-day delivery within Australia, 7 day delivery between the US and Canada, and 10 day delivery for overseas shipments/other countries.

Original plan (cumulative days in transit in parentheses):
  1. @jcdoss
  2. @monochrome (2)
  3. @Wild Mark; (12)
  4. @sbh (22)
  5. @gorme (24)
  6. @robbiec (24)
  7. @kp0c (34)
  8. @Mattcard (36)
  9. @Enigmatica (46)
  10. @K David; (56)
  11. @Mamethot (63)
  12. @mconwxdr (70)
  13. @Rense (80)
  14. @pathdoc (90)
  15. @g026r (92)
  16. @nomolas (102)
  17. @kickman (112)
  18. @petrol_pyro (122)
Proposed plan (cumulative days in transit in parentheses):
  1. jcdoss
  2. monochrome (2)
  3. kp0c (9) -25 days
  4. Mattcard (11) -25 days
  5. Wild Mark (21) +9 days
  6. sbh (31) +9 days
  7. gorme (33) +9 days
  8. robbiec (33) +9 days
  9. K David (43) -13 days
  10. mconwxdr (45) -25 days
  11. Mamethot (52) -11 days
  12. pathdoc (54) -36 days
  13. g026r (56) -36 days
  14. Enigmatica (66) +20 days
  15. petrol_pyro (69) -53 days
  16. Rense (79) -1 day
  17. nomolas (81) -21 days
  18. kickman (91) -21 days
Let me know what you guys think!

Looks good, Adam! As far as I'm concerned, you could place me anywhere in the sequence, probably as close to any other European 'contestant' as possible.... I won't get mad if it takes longer till my turn.....

Obviously I'm for it, but reducing the number of international legs seems like a good idea. I've had too many things go missing when going or coming from overseas!

Here's an updated proposal in response to feedback I've gotten:
  1. jcdoss
  2. monochrome (2) US
  3. Wild Mark (12) AU
  4. sbh (22) EU
  5. gorme (24) EU IR
  6. robbiec (24) EU IR
  7. kp0c (34) CA
  8. Mattcard (36) CA
  9. Mamethot (38) -27 days CA
  10. K David (45) -11 days US
  11. mconwxdr (47) -23 days US
  12. pathdoc (54) -36 days CA
  13. g026r (56) -36 days CA
  14. Enigmatica (66) +20 days AU
  15. petrol_pyro (69) -53 days AU
  16. Rense (79) -1 day EU
  17. nomolas (81) -21 days EU
  18. kickman (91) -31 days SA
Here's another alternative in which I've eliminated an international leg but moved down @Wild Mark; in order to group him with @Enigmatica and @petrol_pyro . If you guys agree then I'm leaning toward this one:

  1. jcdoss
  2. monochrome (2) US
  3. sbh (12) EU -10 days
  4. gorme (14) EU IR -10 days
  5. robbiec (14) EU IR - 10 days
  6. Wild Mark (24) + 12 days AU
  7. Enigmatica (27) -19 days AU
  8. petrol_pyro (30) -92 days AU
  9. kp0c (40) +6 days CA
  10. Mattcard (42) +6 days CA
  11. Mamethot (44) -19 days CA
  12. K David (51) -5 days US
  13. mconwxdr (53) -17 days US
  14. pathdoc (60) -30 days CA
  15. g026r (62) -30 days CA
  16. Rense (72) -8 days EU
  17. nomolas (74) -28 days EU
  18. kickman (84) -38 days SA
