    Why wonder? Why not shoot the stuff, maybe just at you find whimsical, and not worry about it. After all, it doesnt cost that much, and if it doesnt turn out, chances are you wont be charged for it, or charged a very reduced rate.

    Is your garage usually a cool place? If so, there should be no problem. Another story goes for exposed emulsion, I was always told until I left an exposed roll 3 years in a suitcade. After processing...no visible problem at all! Thanks Kodak. :D
