    That's probably true. I think I could probably jump a curb and go through a front yard if I had to; it's incredibly nimble.

    Newt, Ron (PE) does this pretty regularly and will keep doing it I suspect. It's an expense for sure, but no more than any vacation you might do. We are very lucky to have this opportunity.

    The run up from Pittsbugh should be fun. I've driven that route back and forth more than I can count, as Pittsubrgh is my home town. I still have family there. Just be careful if there is any rain. Those roads are bumpy in places and the big rigs hog I-90 east and west. Also, when you get to Angola, you are 1/2 way there! And, I-90 has tolls at the border and at Buffalo.

    As for the course, I should remark here that GEH does NOT cancel courses, and so I will be teaching regardless of class size. Also, several of my associates have said that they will join us (their schedule permitting) for some of the classes and lunches to answer your questions. In addition, the lunch the first day is provided by GEH.

    See you there!

    Bob;

    It was great meeting all of you guys too.. I just got back from GEH about an hour ago. I picked up everything and Mark and I made sure the lab was clean. I can say this. Michael was somewhat shorter than I expected.......!!!!

    He would never fit in my home darkroom.

    Best wishes to you all.

    Ron

    Yea, I need to be very careful in antique stores as well. Move very slowly one foot at a time, turn, look around, move a little bit more...

    What a good group we had!

    I enjoyed meeting everyone and the course itself was invaluable. I'm also amazed at how easy the Azo emulsion is to make.

    Rub it in Chris. Just keep it up.

    The next workshop is tentatively scheduled for Spring 2012. No fixed date and actually the subject matter is under review. I'll let you know as soon as I know. There are about 4 choices under review.

    1. Azo type in 3 grades. - 3 days
    2. Kodabromide type in 2 grades. - 4 days
    3. ISO 40 Ortho film and plate. - 4 days
    4. Film system design (testing premade papers and films/plates) Days TBA

    Mark and I are discussing the options and plan (as usual) some dry runs of the selected workshop. Tiego is leaving in November IIRC, so both of us will be without lab assistants. Anyone willing to volunteer????
