You know what's more fun? Playing "What Did I Expose" with the 4x5 film holders from 3 years ago.
I do this on a regular basis, though I suppose I could look it up - all my LF is recorded in a field book. The problem is, my field notation really needs some work. I can hardly decipher the intent of some of my notes. On the other hand, I can usually recall quite clearly the circumstances under which I shot a particular sheet or roll of film... once I get a look at the processed negatives.
I was caught up on all my processing, if not printing... then I did something really dumb - I started the "picture a day" challenge. That was on January 1, 2010, and I have shot at least one "considered" frame every day, usually several. Back in September, I passed the 1000 day threshold and am still going. The problem is, at this point, my budget does not begin to cover the cost of processing the backlog of films stacked in and around my darkroom fridge.

Ansel Adams had the Zone System... I'm working on the points system. First I points it here, and then I points it there...
Wow....where'd you go? What was the total cost in film and processing?
Well, can't speak for polyglot but I regularly come back from my trips (1-4 weeks) with 20-100 rolls. As 80% is B&W, I have no idea what the cost of processing is, although I know it's minimal since chemicals are cheap and I do all my own. Colour is usually slide and will set me back about $5 a roll here in japan. And getting back to the OP, I've had a similar backlog, although I can normally get back to it within the year.
My favorite thing is to go where I've never been. D. Arbus
