Take your time with it, I will be out of the country from April 6 through April 22. I have my print ready to go, so if it takes a couple of weeks to get to me, that would be just about right.

Mea culpa. I have been, well, dealing with life and travelling. I will put SOMETHING in the box and send it on. I'm sorry that I have taken so long. Next week, it will head back out.

Hey, I just read this. Well, the first couple of pages anyway. Is it too late to join in?

Art.

Art (and anyone else who's interested)--just send me a pm with your name, address, e-mail address, and phone number, and I'll add you to the list. When it get's back to New York, I'll ask all the current participants and people on the waiting list to reconfirm and make sure all the addresses are up to date, and then I think we'll be ready to split into two portfolios.

David,
Am I on ANY list? I thought I was going to be sent the first portfolio but it's been so long ago I don't know if I'll ever see it.

Bruce--you're still at the top of the waiting list. It just hasn't made its way around since we all met in my apartment. A couple of snags happened along the way. This is why I'd like everyone to reconfirm for round 3, so we don't have it going missing for three months in various spots en route.

Also if we split into two or three groups, maybe we can get the number of participants in each portfolio down to 15 or so, so that it doesn't take so long to make the journey. There is something kind of neat and ritualistic about having it come around once a year, but it might be a little more lively if we could trim it down to six months. On the other hand, the f32.net Travelling Exhibition is smaller, but it still seems to take quite a while to make the rounds for some reason--maybe more border crossings.

I'm thinking we ought to do something to try to spread the mailing costs around. The first two rounds the plan was just to let people volunteer to take the international shipments, but this isn't really an option for people like Ole, Jorge, Nige, and others who are always getting stuck with the big shipping fees. If anyone has any thoughts or ideas on how to manage some sort of shipping fund, I'd be interested in hearing them.

I suppose one way would be to open up a PayPal account for people to contribute to the portfolio, say for international shipping expenses and the cost of the second, and maybe third portfolio cases, and these funds could be be transferred to individuals to defray some of the high shipping fees. PayPal fees of course would cut into the fund, but compared to other options for transferring funds over the net, it seems widely available and convenient, and anyone who doesn't want to deal with PayPal could just send a check or whatever they prefer.

I have no problem with contributing. I think I got off the cheapest of all, since I could just drop off the portfolio live to the next person. I think it is more than time for me to pay for an overseas leg or contribute to a fund. I just don't want to miss pictures of the people I have seen so far. To bad the portfolio case is not big enough to expand to allow the waiting list in too. That would just take a lot longer for it to make the rounds. Oh well

Once this round is done (soon I hope, if there are no more holdups!), I hope we can buy enough portfolios to accommodate everyone who is interested.

I have no problems with paying international postage - if I did, I would simply not have joined. I consider it a bargain anyway - I get to see all these great prints, for the price of shipping it on!

For those who are worried, jdef has it and is just out of town and says he'll be sending it along as soon as he gets back.

Thanks, Jay. Regarding "openings" and such. The current plan is to add another portfolio for the next round and we'll reconfirm if that might help avoid future hangups.
