    Well they both have lenses and electronics so I would think that they would both types would be equally damaged by too much bumping.

    Maybe you should do a list of people then we will know how many slots left.:)

    Well I will buy the camera this weekend and know how many slots it has.

    It would be very helpful if people would give a their general location as well since I will have to work out the route..

    I'm down with it, though my address depends on whether I'm home or still at college when it is sent.

    Sounds like fun, I'm in. Only thing is, I'll be on the road for a short while. But you can send to my address in Bloomfield, NJ & if I am away for that week I'll have Jamielor take a pic & pass it along.

    So far 27 including Verarde's maybe. I think that's about standard, so to include one or two backup shots it's probably time to close signups unless there are more than two dropouts.

    I can put together a tentative route if some folks can volunteer for the international shipping. Since the first is going primarily west to east, I'd suggest this time going from England to Norway to the US to Canada to Australia. ParadigmShifter, Silurian, or GinandTonic will have to send to Kan who (unless Scotland/England doesn't count as international? In which case any of those four) will have to send to Cheetah in Norway. Cheetah will send to the US, one of the 17 Americans will have to send to Canada. Valka, warpus, or contre will have to send to Australia, and rugbyLEAGUEfan or classical hero will have to send to the UK.
