Traveling Portfolio--Round 3
The updated mailing order is here-- http://www.apug.org/forums/326948-post8.html
Sorry for the long delay, folks, but Round 3 is finally getting off the ground TODAY.
I'll be picking up a second portfolio at B&H today, and we'll be splitting into two groups, one headed more or less East and one headed more or less West, and there will be room to add new participants along the way, so I hope we won't have such a long waiting list this time around.
I've sent out e-mails or PMs to people on the waiting list or people who haven't been around APUG lately to confirm participation. I've also sent a PM or e-mail to participants for whom we are missing information--name, address, and phone number. The list as I have it includes (not in any particular order)--
David A. Goldfarb
If you're on this list and wish to withdraw, please let me know, and if you've got a print in the portfolio, we'll make arrangements to get it back to you.
If you've sent me an e-mail or PM and I've missed it, or if you want to join, please send me a PM.
Meanwhile, please ignore the address list on the Portfolio secure page--that's out of date.

Reason: List update.
Portfolio 2 purchased, and I've updated the FAQ for the Traveling Portfolio and posted it at--
Okay, I might wait a few days before posting the new lists, since confirmations, updates, and withdrawals are still coming in, but the portfolios will go out in tomorrow's mail.
First up for Portfolio #1 is Carl Radford.
Bruce (Camclicker) already has given me his submission for Portfolio #2, so next up is wfe.
Case has arrived!
The case has arrived - well it was delivered to the neighbours yesterday and I got it tonight. Unfortunately we leave for 5 days holiday in the morning but will ensure it is sorted and on its way as soon as I return!
All the best, Carl
Thanks for checking in Carl!

Who is in what case? and what is the order?
I'll be posting that shortly. Still waiting for a few confirmations. For the moment, I've got one going from New York eastward to the UK, Scandinavia, Europe, Australia, and back around to the US, and the second moving around the Northeast US and then westward across North America to New Zealand, and back.
I'm trying to balance level of experience, international participation, alt-process and traditional, and postage costs. In regions where there is a high number of participants (particularly Texas and the Northeast), I'm trying to make it work out that both portfolios pass through the region, so that if people want to have gatherings to see the portfolios, they can see both.
I haven't had a chance to post the new address list, but meanwhile here is the order I've worked out for the moment--
David A. Goldfarb
Lee sitting out this round
Joe Lipka out next round
JD Callow sitting out this round
gbenaim sitting out this round
phong Sitting out this round
Robert Kennedy lost contact
I'm thinking possibly of not posting the address list. Meanwhile, I've been just PM'ing the next person to confirm and give them the combo, and this is working quite well to insure the smooth transfer of the portfolio, reconfirm the address, and be sure that the next person will be there to receive it. This also gives us more flexibility to tweak the order as we go, to add or remove participants en route, switch things around when someone is going on vacation, etc. I can't post the list directly, so I'd rather not bother Sean about it while he's got other things to manage. The address list is on a password protected page, but maybe for security reasons, it's better anyway not to have it on the site. If anyone has any strong feelings about this either way, let me know.
Right now Carl Radford has Portfolio I, and PhotoPete has Portfolio II. gr82bart and Liza have reconfirmed and are awaiting the portfolios.

Reason: list updated
Portfolio on its way to Liza...
Posted this afternoon via Royal Mail Airsure ref: LY 2020 5758 1GB.
Whilst the portfolio was pretty thin there are many stunning images that are a joy to hold, inspire and admire. Can't wait for it to come back round again!
All the best, Carl
Thanks for confirming, Carl. Yes, right now, with quite a few new participants and having split the portfolio into two, the portfolios are thinner starting into the third round, but it will fill up before it comes back.
