That stink... I'm sure for a price you could get Rodinal somehow... eBay maybe? But it would cost more than DD-X lol
Perhaps ilford is the way to go? ID-11 or Microdol? It's powder so could work if you don't mind powder?
I hate powder but if I had no choice that's how I would go, probably Microdol replenished, seems the best alternative for me, but ID-11 might be better for you.
Good luck sir, I'll be in Canada (Nova Scotia) and if I drive I can make a shipment of something anyone would want but it would cost you and I would have to properly declare it and pay the extra for haz materials etc.
Man, I would freak if I couldn't get Rodinal lol! When the ice melts you should drive to the US pick some up in Seattle and drive back with enough to sell to the other Alaskans... At a premium haha! :)
if it cannot be flown, mix your own;hey I'm a poet.
Nicole handles the film/paper/chemistry at Beau photo. I've found her fairly knowledgable, friendly, and helpful. Expecting a Beau box to arrive today......
Edit, 5 minutes later: It's here!! Off to the darkroom for me!!
I work for the USPS. While it is true most photographic mixtures are mailable, I would not attempt it with any ORM-D chemicals, nor in liquid quantities over one pint. I have studied the rule book myself for my own knowledge as a photographer and it is of little use. The one pint restriction is clear however. The best guide might be to see the MSDS for the product in question and compare it to the USPS hazmat charts, the one with the actual hazmat classes listed. The MSDS should give the various shipping restrictions. I am very sure Rodinal is unmailable, same with acetic acid stop baths. Same for products like Drano and Clorox. Rodinal definitely falls under hazard class "corrosive" on its MSDS and that class is completely unmailable according to the chart at work. Since 9/11 we are instructed to err on the safe side. I have seen packages with perfectly safe contents get kicked back by the TSA because they did not think it could go on a plane. If they find a gallon of Rodinal the G men might just pay you and me a visit.
"G-Men", "warm and sunny Seattle," boy, these posts are hilarious. You are keeping me entertained. But I sympathize with those who have trouble with getting what I would look on as basic supplies. They say the world is shrinking but for some of us it is getting more complicated. Hang in there!
