    Hello
    I plan on starting a small project in Houston tx
    The plan is to leave a roll of film in a geochached spot with a note to use it and post it on flickr. Im sure this is already happening places but I would like to do my part to get people interested in film photography in Houston.

    I am looking for 35mm color film. Easy stuff to get developed here.
    I have already pulled my expired color film aside for the project

    Thanks in advance
    Gabe

    How fun! Good luck. Sorry, but all I have to offer on the expired front is 120 and 220.

    How old do you want? I have a unopened 3 pack of Kodak Gold 200 (1-36 and 2-24) dated 1992. Room temperature storage.

    That sounds fantastic. How much did you want for the film?

    Have you considered Rite-Aid or the 99 Cent Store?

    How many rolls are you looking to acquire? I was gifted a generous quantity of film from a police detachment that had switched to digital years ago and was finally getting around to dismantling their darkroom and emptying the fridge. Because of the specific nature of the photography a lot of the film is in short, 12 exposure rolls. All of it is outdated and has not been stored "cool" since I got it last year although it was properly stored prior to that. I've been using primarily to experiment with caffenol processing. In any case, I don't mind passing on some film for the shipping cost as a Karma investment. Let me know.

    Gabe,

    I have some rolls you can have... if you are in the NW area I can just meet you to give it to you.
    There is a pretty active film community in Houston... some of us get together for film crawls and such on ocassion. Join us sometime!
