The path of the camera is set at the very begining and is sent with the camera. Coordinating an additional shooter in mid stream is too difficult right now.

2. Start a new thread - post the rules and ask for sign ups - give a deadline to sign up
3. Collect all the names and mailing addresses via PM
4. Once the sign up period is over - create the path - set yourself as the last person on the path
5. Pack the camera with the list of names in the order of the path
6. Mail the camera off to the first person on the path
7. Monitor the camera as it makes it way along the path
8. When it returns to you, develop the film and post the pics
Organizing one of these requires some dedication. It could take several months - over a year for the cakmera to make it's travels, so you will have be prepared to monitor and gently remind people to take their picture and move the camera along.
Without 'proactive' organization, the camera could lounge for weeks/months at one person's place before it's moved to the next person.
I hope you do organize another camera. These traveling cameras are a lot of fun.
I'll keep that in mind. Not sure a matchbox pinhole would even survive the trip to tell you the truth, perhaps a few revisions from now. hehehe.
Here's how it stands now:
Glenn Mathison (Australia) <======= camera is here (last update on Jun 05, 2006)
Nigel Smith (Australia)
Nicolle Boenig-Mcgrade (Australia)
Bruce (Camclicker) <======= camera is here (last update on May 22, 2006)
David A. Goldfarb
It would be really nice if the folks who have the cameras now would please post an update.
Bruce is having some problems posting to this thread, so he sent me a PM instead. The camera that was with him (the "original" one) is on it's way to David now, and he conveys his apologies for the delay.

Reason: Minor formatting issues...
I got a PM from Bruce saying he just dropped the camera off in person at my building, but unfortunately (unfortunately for the camera that is), I'm in Hawai'i at the moment and won't be back for several weeks. We're working on it...

If this gets thru...
I've been in contact with David and I will try, with his assistance to get the package back and send on to the next person in line.
The further bad news is I will be without computer for the next 3 weeks and will not be able receive or send correspondence.
Okay, Bruce will pick it up and send it along, either to me or to the next person.
Update: Bruce has the camera and will send it to me in a couple of days. Looks like we're back on track.
STATUS UPDATE - REPLACEMENT CAMERA !!
Sorry for the delay folks, I decided to take it to Thailand with me two weeks ago and I just returned yesterday. It's in the post to Nige today so he should get it probably Monday.
This one is *nearly* at the end
yep, got the cam today. I gather this is the replacement camera... are we really going to get it processed with on 7 exposures made (5 gone, me and Nic)??
No, there should be a lot more than 7 exposures on that camera, there should be about 26 or so.
