I am sooo tired of the weather here, blistering 48f and finally stopped raining. Keep yer sunny hot weather to yerself amigo.:p

Oh trust me, it gets tedious after 5 or 6 months of no rain. You wake up, you know without looking the sky is blue, not a cloud in sight. Try taking B&W with that kind of background!

Mike,

Update us, please - when you have a chance.

Starting to warm up in Colorado?

Hope all is well.

Regards,

Shawn

It's beautiful in Colorado... 70 something F (21'ish C for you out-of-towners) degrees today! The first shot is taken, and I'll get the second in a day or so. I'll PM cdholden when I'm ready to ship!

Sorry for the delay, I was sent to Seattle for a week for work.

For those celebrating, Happy Easter!

Seems fatigue has set in - it's been 9 days since the last post.

But this project is still alive, and almost done! Let's get an update on the Olympus if we can, Mike.

Hope all are well.

Celebrating a festival based on a pagan goddess of fertility?... I'm in favour of that!

Superb, Mike! I would amend your sentence and say that "...work tends to take over life [almost always] it seems. :(

Yeah, after the issues with the Camera 7 twins, and then, someone being very slow in passing on one of the Camera 8 twins...

The cameras in Round 7: whereabouts unknown, or known (with deadbeats)?

Hi Shawn,

Any news from Mr M.A Longmore ? And wasn't another late participant planned, before the camera will be back in your hands ?

Regards,

Hi Raphael - hope you are well.

Good memory! You are correct, but since there's been no response from Jim17x, we are moving on. I hate to leave leave someone out, but rules are rules, and we don't want to risk the camera at this point.

Ron Longmore confirmed he is participating, so he is the last one before I get it.

Regards,

Shawn

I let the days fly away and I forgot any recent updates on the last stopover points.

Until toro_mike's home, the Oly travelled 17166km (27,465 miles), and it takes 354 days to do so. Then, average speed is 48.5km/day, or 77.6mi/day, or 3375 furlongs/fornight ;)

BTW, we shamefully forgot the Oly Camera 9 project anniversary day: the April 12th, the camera was travelling for more than a year ;)

Something is wonky with your numbers. I think you have miles and kilometers switched around, because 27,465 kilometres = 17,166 miles.

But remember, the cameras are metric, so those are metric miles. ;)

Argh, yes, sorry. This is in fact 17166 km and 10729 miles...

So same thing for the speed, 30.31 mi/day...

It was for checking if someone actually read me :whistling:

But I like the lxdude proposal of metric miles unit very much !

And whatever, the furlong/fornight should be right :D

Thanks,
