Back from out west - what did I forget? : LUSENET : Large format photography : One Thread

This isn't really a question, but responses are welcomed.

Just got back Saturday from the Four Corners region, and I am happy to report that much to my surprise nothing was broken, lost or stolen. I would like to thank everyone who offered tips regarding what equipment he/she can't live without when embarking on such a journey (12 states, 6800 miles); I found much of the information quite useful.

Special thanks must go out to everyone who warned of wind and dust problems. I was well-prepared with ziploc bags and compressed air due to the sage advice.

I problably won't have all the development done for a couple of months... cross your fingers.

Film supposedly looses speed if you wait a long time after exposure before development. I suggest you develop now, and wait as long as you need to before printing.

Not a word about the snakes. How were they?

No snakes (and my wife didn't like the snakebite kit recommendation at all).

As for film, you are welcome to come to my house to develop all you want. I'm sending the color stuff out, but the black and white will have to dwindle slowly from the fridge as I work through it.
