    I guess I do kind of hoard gold chloride and amidol. I bought 25g of gold chloride at a pretty good price when I saw the price starting to shoot up--enough for about 300 8x10" albumen prints. I got 6 Kg of amidol with the Chinese purchase. At 8g/l of developer that should last a while.

    I often buy twice the amount of film needed to do a job, and hoard the left over. When I have a darkroom, which is not the case now, I buy film and chems as needed and in bulk (cubes of bleach and dev). When I find a good price I buy as much as I can afford.

    Hoarding is a tough term to apply for me. When I'm shooting which hasn't been much lately, I shoot in large quantities. What I have hoarded doesn't generally hangout for long.

    Currently I have over 1000 sheets of 4x5 and only a few hundred rolls of 120/220. Normally I would expect to have burned through all the rolls, as much as twice or thrice over, and most of if not all of the sheets by year's end. It will be interesting to see what actually happens.

    Wouldn't call my little stash of 4x5 film 300-400 sheets and maybe 140 rolls of 120 mostly APX100/400 RSX50 hoarding but have aquired 3 pound of Amidol which will last a long time. Will be buying more dry chemicals whenever possible.
    If i had the money i would buy a new freezer and fill it with film, paper and chemicals.

    I think hoarding is the wrong term. Stockpiling is more like it. I have to stock a lot of materials because like a lot of you out there, there is no local or regional vendor that stocks anything. I think I have about 2000 sheets of 4x5 b/w for now.

    I'm going to buy some more Fortia to have for a rainy day (well, sunny, rather), but most of the time you have to keep some sort of stockpile. I have 20 rolls of Kodak Max, but that's not hoarding so much as it was really cheap at the time.

    Blog thing!.

    Worry less. Photograph more.

    Books.

    Lord knows that once the internet dominates the world, publishing will die.

    I think I'll try this as a pick-up line.

    I think the terms are mostly interchangeable. I guess I choose the somewhat more loaded term because it intentionally reflects the rather more defensive posture related to "doomsday" scenarios, as distinct from merely maintaining an inventory.

    With that explanation, the term is perfect for most APUGers.
