Pentax K1000

I feel a bit spoiled with all the features and ease of use new cameras these days have so been looking at the Pentax from various sites recomending it as a great first film camera.

My camera bag has plenty of space for one more body I can carry around and I was thinking, wouldn't a film camera be the perfect back up since its all mechanical apart from a tiny cell battery for metering? I mean, sometimes things can look better with real film grain (another reason Im interested) and Im looking forward to just going back to basics.

I have owned a film camera before but not an interchangeable lens SLR and would like some advice on what to look for when buying a K1000 in good condition and what first lens you recommend.
