Meanwhile, routing & shipping suggestions are welcome!
Here is a suggested route:
nsmith01tx -> Texas
david b -> New Mexico
Rich Long -> Colorado
MenacingTourist -> Utah
MattCarey -> California
ggriffi -> Indiana
Suzanne Revy -> Massachusetts
jnanian -> Rhode Island
bobfowler -> New Jersey
sensanjay -> New Jersey
gr82bart -> Toronto
Bob F. -> West London, UK
TPPhotog -> South Devon, UK
Leon -> Kent, UK
janvanhove -> Belgium
rst -> Germany
Ole -> Norway
gbroadbridge -> Australia
1) I assumed gr82bart's location as Toronto.
2) I voulnteered to ship the camera overseas.
3) I scanned the thread but didn't notice anybody volunteering to develop,
so I looked at the geographic locations for the route.
4) I can volunteer to develop the film, but it will have to be in a lab as I do
not have a darkroom.
Of course, suggestions are welcome to the above route/plan ....
You've definitely helped move things along, especially your offer to ship the camera overseas. I've PM'd gbroadbridge to see what he'd prefer to do. I think we may tweak your plan a bit as Bob F. has also offered to ship across borders.
I've also thought about running this one backwards from round 1 and shipping it to Australia as a first step. One thought I had about that is that if some overzealous customs agent opened the camera then the shots done in the US afterwards (the majority) would still be ok.
I do plan to tape a warning/plea across the film access button in back in hopes of avoiding that possibility.
If there's room, can you add me please?
Welcome aboard Mike, you're #19.

I am going to ship the camera on Tuesday 4/26. We can accomodate any newcomers until then.
