    Camera 8.1 is now in Ralph Javins' hands. Handed it over to him on Sunday. He will be the one who sends it to Shawn.

    Just in case anyone is wondering, I still have our camera. I haven't been able to get out with it yet. Hopefully this weekend.

    I know you were all getting nervous as this is where it got lost last time.

    If Jake (Black Dog) is reading this, please send me a message with an address for me to send it to and promise not to move until at least the middle of February.

    I am beginning to resent being referred to as 'half-fast'.
    Whatever that's supposed to mean.

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

    Who would want a busted Nikon anyway?

    Or something like that.

    Now that 8.1 is in the home stretch, I am excited and worried at the same time. On one hand I want to see whats on it, and for it to tell me its travels. On the other I am dreading looking at my pictures as I shouldn't have rushed them or mixed cameras and alcohol.

    This is my first time doing any traveling camera, and the histories of the past ones seem buried deep down in the archives under hundreds of posts. Is there anyone here that has done the cameras from the start? #1? Can anyone please do a quick outline of outcomes of previous cameras as well? I think 6+7 were lost no? besides that I know next to nothing of them. Do the cameras usually survive? What kind of travel scars do they end up with? How do they look like before and after? What models were they? Was film ever fogged due to all that air travel? Did any member ever decided to prank everyone and send a dummy roll in at the end? lol Were images posted to the public and are they still up?

    thanks

    IIRC, #6 was what is now #8.2. Cameras 7a and 7b were Fuji disposable cameras that got lost by both the UK postal service and the USPS.
