I hope that you things are going to get better for you. As you probably can imagine I went through some problems with my familly as well. I respect the fact that you had the courage to share your personal problems in public.The worst thing is the widespread prejudice. A lot of folks will assume you're a spoiled, ungrateful brat and that the parents are always the victims.

Haaaaaaaiiiiiii! ^_^

I'm sorry to hear about your bad situation, Achint. :C I can't even begin to imagine how that must be like. I really do hope things will get better for you and your mom.

Well, I still think that it's pretty amazing that the ocarina is still in one piece (more or less) even after all this time.

Hey Achint, it's good to see you again. Sorry to hear of the bad news, but on the bright side, it sounds like things are starting to get better on your end.

I just double checked and I still do have the backups of the USB drive before I sent it off to Stephen.

Hooray!! Perhaps we can manage to finish this by the end of the year.
But... Then what would we do?

You know, at this rate perhaps we should rename it to "Around the World in 80 Years".

Hey guys. I'm going to my dads house tonight and will get the ocarina back. Once my paycheck comes in I'll have it shipped off to Roger. Unless he instructs me otherwise to send it to someone else in Australia or whatever.

Roger, your call.

And hey Ross :) Good to see you again too!

This is amazing news! We could actually do this!
Perhaps it's about time to start putting together a list of where it's already been.

My ocarina has no hair...either

I have heard from Achint twice now concerning this ocarina. He now has it in his possession, and said that he will be mailing it soon. It looks like I was completely wrong about his integrity. I am very sorry for anything I have said that made him look bad. I want to thank everyone who participated in this event, and hope to have a video up for all to see in a couple of months.

So what's the latest on this? Where's the ocarina now?

I believe Roger said that he received it from Achint. I guess he decided to retire the ocarina from its travels.

Hello. Is there any chance to continue the journey of the ocarina?

You'd have to ask Roger Jewell how he feels about that. He doesn't visit TON that often but you can find him on Facebook.

Hi, I'm Mathew :)

I've been thinking of possibly getting an ocarina to go on this world tour. If I do, it'll be October in which it happens.

The idea is pretty novel and pretty interesting. It would work and be pretty fun, in theory. The main issue is that there is a difference between "theory" and "practice," and sometimes that difference can be very profound, as can be seen in this case. In theory the ocarina would go around the world and everyone would be happy. In practice one must account for travel times and life getting in the way of a member's being able to participate, effectively cutting off the trip - as is what happened here. The more complex something is the more likely it will be to fail. That is why, if you want to do an Around the World event, I suggest that you have only a couple people participating, and a backup plan should something go wrong.

From what I understand the original plan was for members to record videos and download them to a USB flash drive that accompanied the traveling ocarina. That flash drive disappeared somewhere on its journey and I don't think anybody managed to upload any videos to youtube. So there are no recordings. The ocarina itself was accidentally smashed but was repaired by Spoonyspork and then sent out again where it spent several months in a holding pattern until it eventually found its way back home to RJ924, the originator of the Around the World in 80 Days project.
