    Ralph,

    I live in south Florida and the only dry chemicals I store other than in the original unopened containers are sodium sulfite, edta and citric acid that I use for pt/pd. They are kept in the plastic jars as they come from Bostick & Sullivan and remain okay. I suppose you could use ziplok bags and express excess air before closing and maybe keep them in the refrigerator that would be dry.

    Also the other day you mentioned going digital because you would no longer have a darkroom. I suggested checking out a photography program in a nearby college/jr, college as they might have a darkroom and could appreciate your expertise.

    Enjoy sunny Florida.

    Cold...damn cold, here in Jasper, AB. Yesterday am, the thermometer showed -29C; with wind chill, it was at least 10C colder. The trip up here from Vancouver (temperature of -4C atop Burnaby Mountain when I left) was a near-11 hour white knuckle experience (I usually do it in 6 1/2 - 6 3/4 hours in my German car). Oh, the silly things I will do to shoot photographs. At any rate, despite fresh batteries, the F5 and F4s bodies were toast after four or five shots (I literally could watch the battery indicator fall after each picture I took); as always, the F2AS was called upon, and worked throughout the day without protest. The 500c/m, loaded with FP4 plus likewise performed without any hesitation.

    The upside of shooting in this deep freeze: 1. Despite the bitter cold, the scenery was beautiful; and 2. No touristas! I did not see a single soul the entire 120km of the Icefields Parkway on my trip down to the Columbia Icefields, or at any of the destinations I stopped at to shoot: Athabasca Falls, Honeymoon Lake, the "Boulder Garden," Tangle Creek or at the Icefields themselves.
    An assortment of F-series Nikons (F to F6, excluding the F4) with quite a few Nikkors, a pair of M6s with some Leitz glass, a pair of 500c/ms with a wide range of Zeiss optics and, just to help keep Duracell solvent, a D800.

    Favourite films: (1). KE ("Kodachrome Era"): 35mm: PKM25 and PKR64, HP5/Tri-X; 120: PKR64, PanF, FP4. (2). PKE ("Post-Kodachrome Era"): (a) 35mm: E100G, HP5 Plus/Tri-X and Delta 3200; (b) 120: E100G, PanF Plus, FP4 Plus, TMax 100.

    Hey BradleyK did you mean 29 F?........

    I doubt that the temperature in Jasper has been 29F (-2C) for well over a month! BTW: I think my conversion is more or less correct. Fahrenheit and other imprecise/crude scales of measurement went the way of Mr Dinosaur years ago up here. lol

    Fahrenheit has a longer scale between freezing and boiling point and therefore provides more precise reading.
