    I have to admit I'm a little excited.. I thought we'd never see the day we'd be three from the end!

    If you saw a man drowning and you could either save him or photograph the event...what kind of film would you use?

    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,

    Raphael

    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

    Raphael:
    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.
    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
    When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.

    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

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

    And whatever, the furlong/fornight should be right

    Thanks,
