This looks great to me, Adam!

I'll also update the group that Eric Hendrickson has the camera and repairs are underway!

All good, looks logical from the Australian perspective. I will commit to express domestic post to make sure the package is not in transit for too long.

SA = South Africa

Oh, and to ease your mind, I took a three place loss to align with AU people - there has been adjustment to get the best world route organised.

Perhaps it means Central America with an S, as in this instance kickman is in Costa Rica.

Even if you're at the bottom of the list, thanks to the optimizations we made you'll get the camera way earlier than before

Good news!

The Traveling K1000 has arrived, in tip-top shape, thanks to Eric.


Travelling K1000 taken with Pentax K-1 and Pentax-K 50/1.2 by Jason Doss, on Flickr

I asked Eric to do a couple extra things besides fix up the camera for the journey. I asked him to be photographer #1! Below are (poor) scans of some prints he sent back with the camera from Gatlinburg, TN.

Also, as part of the journey, I thought it would be cool if we each left a sticker or something just to show where the camera has been. I asked Eric to do the same, only a bit more permanently... I asked him to engrave his autograph on the baseplate, and he did! I didn't photograph it, so you can each see it for yourself when the camera comes your way. It's quite elegant.

Eric also tossed in a nice leather strap to go with the everready case that I'm going to send with the camera. Also, don't forget there will be the M50/1.7 that monochrome donated (but you're not obligated to use, of course), and ten rolls of expired B/W film, which you're also welcome to use.

I just bought some Fuji Superia at the drugstore today, so I'll put in a roll and run around town this weekend and get some photos taken. After that, monochrome, it's coming your way!

So, without further adieu, here are Eric's photos from Gatlinburg!

Good shots from Eric.... And that Asahiflex is gorgeous.

Is it still possible to get in on this?
