No.... that would be me. It's already had two goes at finding me!

Actually, I didn't put my address on the back so I doubt it.


Steve.

Worse, they picked up my return address from rewading the label undernest the label addressed to you.

Unless Black Dog is very, very lucky, we might get to test the detectives at Royal Mail once more, they did sterling service the last time around, so I remain an optimist!

Sile, I think we have to figure out a handicap on our side of the pond, seems our camera might be smitten!

Arrrrgh..... Are you all trying to kill me??? Blackdog you need to camp out in your old house until the camera arrives.. or self flagellate from Lands end to John O Groats just to make up for it!

We don't need a handicap Erik.. we already have one.. it's called the European & ROtW team!!!

This makes us look extremely bad - we now look worse&more inefficient than the f'-n 'mericans, can you imagine THAT??!

This looks like a EU-scheme that comes out of Bruxelles!!!

Nope. You're worse! It's only two of you non-"f-'in Americans", not three of us.
Did you forget that my address change notification was documented back in April (albeit on Camera #6)? :p

This reminds me of part of a routine Al Murray* does talking about Americans:

"We don't think that we are better than you... no. It's just that you're worse than us".

(* British comedian).

Ah Chris you should know by now that I'd never let the truth get in the way of a good old moan.... :laugh:

Just think, if we hadn't had all of the delays with irresponsible people moving house, the camera would have returned finished a couple of days before it started.

Wow, this is chaos that could be made in Italy, and Italians are not even involved...

But fortunately none of the photographers on the list lives in Sanaa, Yemen...

I suggest we rename the next project to "The Odysseus Camera Project".

I think we should rename this thread:-

"Camera 7... The Travelling Camera Project.. Specially for those of you that couldn't organise a piss up in a Brewery

Please sign here:__________________________"

Oh and don't forget to PM the address of the house you were born in and haven't lived in for at least 20 years to our organiser so she can make an even bigger mess of it than it already is :D

PS: We also have some African investors who are interested in getting involved on a financial level.. Please indicate if you wish to help our some very nice people who are in need of your bank account to cash a cheque. It appears to be quite profitable.. So much so that we're considering sending the camera and other valuables to Nigeria when we're through the 498548 people on the list

Strangely, the house I am in now is the one I lived in from about six months old until I was 26. I bought it from my mother earlier this year.

Well Sile, if the job was easy, they would let me do it.

Your doing fine. Administrative muckups are common, the threads get old (my fault), the people move around, you know how it is. I thought it impressive you hit me, a moving target in Aachen. Next traveling camera project is ONLY for those on vacation. All interested, please forward to Sile, 1.) when you will be on vacation, 2.) where you will be, a somewhat good adddress (i.e. General Post Cape of Good Hope S.A. or the like) and 3.) what kind of blintz you might like with your coffee or tea for breakfast.

Steve.

So technically if I followed my principle of giving your birth address instead of the one we had for you we'd have actually hit it on the nose.. impressive!!

Thank you for the vote of confidence Tim.. and it was easy and you did do it! I obviously work better with moving targets.. static and immoveable targets on the other hand....

Ah yes.. another twist for our instanity fuelled project.. "Take a photo while on Vacation with the one camera and then pass it on to the next person on the list who is also on vacation.. Members travelling in the outer Hebrides or climbing Kilimanjaro are particularly welcome......"

Why don't you just send the Vacation camera to me for safekeeping, and instruct all to go visit the norwegian fiords.... en route they visit me, and get to loan the camera for ONE day, I could supply film, whenever we need to change film, the lucky(?) bastard get to send the film to you, and we perpetuate this?
:-)

That way I get a new camera to keep and play with (off-season!), the fiords get very welcome business, and the travellers get a reprive from terror-stricken tourist traps.

Make that camera an exqiuste Voightländer Perkeo II!!

And we wind up with 25 pictures of a Ford!

Too weird.

So Erik, does that mean you're going to house all of us that come visiting for a week or two? I can make it around Christmas next year.
