Sightseeing Screwmount - where are you?

I found and edited these pictures with the Sightseer SV from March 2010. Fuji 160S, Super Takumar 28/3.5

What happened to our Sightseer, can it start a new trip soon, a decade after the first round?

The Sightseeing Screwmount is on a desk in my basement. I looked at it a couple months ago.

I never played. I just found the thread that started this sight seeing thing, but the others can let you know whether it will start again or not.

There was also a travelling MX that Steve M. from BC had going. I tried out the MX and it was fun, first "M" Series camera I had used at the time.

If there is interest I’ll Moderate this round with the SV.

I’d probably send it to Eric first, and redo the packing, then maybe start a new thread such as ‘Sightseeing Screwmount II’ and either restart the Flickr group or start a new Group. It would be nice to have a conversation thread here and comments on the Flickr group like the Daily In Social Groups do - or even make this idea a Social Group.

Restart or start anew? Social Group or just a thread? What say you?

There is a Traveling K1000 going now, and the grand daddy I think was a Traveling Nifty Fifty A50/1.7

Well, you do have know what you're looking for when searching on google for gear on Pentax.
I've not been around as long as those old guys, but I'm not far behind them in age. LOL
