I would love to be involved in this project. Please include me. My post got lost in the first deluge.

Umm....what's happening here? It's been more than two months since the last post.
Hello? I think this idea is dead. Next....
Nope, not dead, just having a bit of a sleep. It's interesting that the round one camera is *still* going **lol**

The data back has a blat flattery which is good, and the camera battery is going strong which is also good.
I'm going to load it with a roll of hp5 tomorrow, shoot a test roll, develop tomorrow night and ship out on Monday.
I'll be sending a bunch of PM's tonight/tomorrrow to those folks who indicated they would be interested in participating. If I don't hear back from any of you by the time the camera reaches the person before you, you will be skipped. BobF is the first person on the list. Bob if you read this PM me to let me know you're still in.
Let's move this camera around folks and finish the trip in record time.

All PM's sent, just awaiting replies.
The Camera *WILL* ship on Monday to BobF, the route after then is dependant upon replies.
Not sure if this matters to anyone, but you may want to put me in line with the other New Jersey members. I moved and don't live in Utah anymore.
I'd hoped to find an on-line manual for this, but who needs it anyway.
I did find this information from the Canon Museum.
