    At the current rate it's going to be hitting the UK in Olympics season... that might be quite cool.

    Its a pity the sailing is not happening in Torbay this time, then you could have had a short trip to get your photo

    If I were involved, I'd have been able to take a picture of the sailing in Portland.

    I think the camera will leave the UK at the end of June so will miss the start of the olympics

    August 10th 2012. I'm optimistic. Plus if it's close to that date I can just lie to you all.

    Got the camera today. It shouldn't take long for me to send it off again. I'm just gonna take a picture looking out by bedroom window! I'm away in Calgary all weekend though so that will delay me putting it in the post.

    It's in the post and on the way to San Diego. It will be a while in the mail, however, as I went with the cheapest option. It should arrive within two weeks.

    The UK folks could adjust the timing so somebody gets a photo of the Olympics. After all, we know this never was going to take just 80 days, so why not allow for some special events?

    The London olympics?

    I probably won't be going, I'd have to go to London.

    So I got the camera. I am going to take the picture soon and plan on sending it out later in the week.
