    Can't wait! Hopefully the daily deluge of monsoon-like rain we've been having will let up by the time I get it. I think a few more chickens (or sushi, over here) will have to be sacrificed to make sure that happens! (but don't worry, I promise to have the camera back out there within the week, regardless of the weather)

    There have been changes.. The cameras will start and end in the same place and logistics have moved addresses with it.

    Thanks for all your work. I was just wondering if you intended to have this camera travel as much as the Canucks hockey team in the regular NHL season

    Between MatthewRusbarsky and I there is about 3000 miles. Between Axle and Flatulent1 there is about 3000 miles. And between lmn and Shawn there is a further 3000 miles. Whereas Matthew Rusbarsky and Axle are fairly close, and Flatulent and I are nearly neighbours.

    In other words, if you reversed the order for us Canadians, you would cut nearly 6000 miles from the route.

    Um...Have you seen Camera 2? We've got to cover 4 continents, including a major backtrack from Australia to Europe to the US and back to Europe, and you're wondering about only 6000 miles? Although similarly for us, it would make for sense for the camera to go to California after Australia, then eastwards across the US, and then finally make the trip to Europe... (just a thought).

    We know, camera 1 isn't exactly "Around the World", more like "Around North America". Kinda takes the romance outta the whole thing...

    Seahawks won Superbowl XLVIII.
    Next year's Superbowl is XLIX. Easier to pronounce than XLVIII. Sounds like XLAX.
    I hope that doesn't mean we won't be able to stop the run...

    Any illusion that the traveling camera is about efficiency was effectively dispelled 1/2 way through the "Camera 1" thread.

    I vote for more transoceanic inter-hemispheric zigzagging next time. On one version of the list the camera went from PA, to me in MD, to Florida (snooze). Even though times are tight and some of us are broke, the new version of the list has me passing the camera to BC. If find this much more satisfying. My two exposed frames may be doing the only traveling I can afford this year. I want them to go as far as possible, even if I have to turn the couch upside down for international shipping.

    I wasn't expecting efficiency

    Just wondered whether the impersonation of the travelling garden gnome was intentional!

    Oh and I thought it would be helpful if I could again personally ensure the camera's safe export from "The True North Strong And Free" to "The Land of the Free and Home of the Brave" (I live 10 minutes from a quiet, backwater border crossing).

    I am, however, in your hands.

    I'm not so sure sending the camera 100 miles would be any more efficient than 3000. I know the way my local system works and would expect the camera coming from the Isle of Wight will get to me faster than something sent the same day from Miami. I believe that's what all the poultry are for

    Be careful what you write. The last time a camera was sent from the Isle of Wight, it ended up in the Bermuda Triangle.

    I kinda agree with this as it pertains to intra-U.S. packages. I've sent stuff from NY to California in the same time it takes to get from NY to NJ.
