We'll alter the plan slightly to make up for the lost time

Wait... What? You're saying there is actually a *plan* for this 'around the world' thing? :p :blink:

(Would it, by any chance, involve chicken?)

That must have been a HUGE pile- feminine hygiene products don't really weigh a whole lot.:blink:

Depends...:whistling:

Update on the Stylus: Finally got some free time this weekend to unbox the camera, put a new battery in, and put it in a fresh box for mailing to Sile tomorrow. The old box got crushed under a pile of stuff (long story - please don't ask), but it is ready to go again.

We'll alter the plan slightly to make up for the lost time: if the Leica comes to the end of its list, we will send it to whoever is on next on the list to receive the Stylus at that time. All of my screw-ups aside, we can still bring home these cameras by the end of the year.

Finally - my sincerest apologies to all patiently waiting on the second list!

Hurrah !!!! Thanks for your efforts!
:cool:

When rotating the 2nd attached image, I see there is a also a "road book" with the Stylus ! Good idea.

Cheers,

C'mon! You make it sound like we're making this stuff up as we go along!

Some might call it results-based management: Shawn sends a camera or two out into the world. What happens after that, he has no control over:blink: He hopes the long-term outcome will be two sets of pictures we can all enjoy! We all share his hopes:)

Depends...:whistling::D It took me a while to absorb that...


Isn't that more like an elderly hygiene product?

Ahhh, details... still funny.

Japan and Ireland, where the two cameras will soon land, I'm not worried about. It's those lesser known wilderness countries I worry about.

Like Canada.

We are all booked for the current round, but welcome aboard for Round 10! Of course, this is presuming ANYONE will still have an appetite to continue with this silliness.

We had a shooter from New Zealand in one of the recent rounds, but they bowed out of this one. We'd love to have you in the next one. Stay tuned!

Is everyone signing the book included with the Leica?

Hmmm, didn't see a book with it. So, guess not.

You were supposed to write a 173 page book about The Thirty Years’ War: The Habsburg-Bourbon Conflict, 1635-1648, sign it and include it in the box when you sent it on:blink:

You did get the memo?

So the Thirty Years' War lasted for fourteen years?

I belive Shawn and Síle stipulated that we were only to write about the remainder of the Thirty Years’ War which concluded with the Habsburg- Bourbon conflict. If I have misread the guidelines please correct.

YOUR math sucks. We all know the 30 years war lasted 278 years.
