I'll have the 4x5, Hassy (maybe the 6x9 if it's back from CLA in PA) and the digital gear. I try and do this each year in April/May. Last year I took a class in with B Barnbaum the year before I went to Montana...wonderful country we have on the west coast. Enjoy the journey.
    Dang...I always thought that the "Hassy" was only a 2&1/4 X 2&1/4 camera...A Hassy in 6X9 would be excellent. Many years ago I had one of those giant SLR Pentax 6X9 cameras and got some nice photos out of those large negatives.

    Yah, Lee was born here, but moved to New York when I was just a couple years old, so I didn't have the chance to meet him and learn from him. I'm pretty much "self taught" in photography (aside from a couple years in Journalism class at Grays Harbor College, here in Aberdeen, back in the late 1980's, and a few seminars "here & there" over the years).

    ...Razor clams?...Yup, YUMMY, but I'll still take a fresh, fat, "cooked just right" Dungeness crab over a clam anyday..

    Me too but the Clam Chowder comes before the main course. Isn't local seafood great? How 'bout some smoked salmon on a cold fall day?

    My confusion, add a comma between the Hassy and 6x9. The 6x9 is a 1950s vintage Voigtlander Bessa II. I have it in PA with "Certo6" for a CLA (clean, lube and adjust) I'm not sure if it will be back by time for the trip. Not a problem, 2 film and 1 digital is enough.

    Clam chowder...I make a GREAT clam chowder, but when I take my wife out for lunch, we go to a place here in Aberdeen named "Duffy's". I usually have a Rubin sandwich (served with potato salad), & a bowl of their clam chowder...VERY good.

    Dang...Now I'm hungry..

    I'll have to look up Duffy's next time I'm in the area. The last time I had a Rubin sandwich I was in New York, the deli's there are beyond belief. Few places have clam chowder that's any good. The same with crab and salmon cakes if you can find any.

    We moved up to Skagit from Seattle twelve years ago to the small town of Edison. One of our reasons for doing so was that we would be neatly positioned between two oyster farms, a few miles away in either direction. Best clam chowder recently was in Astoria. Somewhere I have the name of the place, but couldn't find it just now.

    I bet it rains a lot more where you are. We get less here than Seattle, a bit more than Sequim, something like 20" / year.

    A late welcome from a former resident.
    My first nine years were spent on Bench Drive.
    I would really like to retire in my old home. I the rain and fog. People laugh when I describe growing up with 360 days of rain and 5 days of fog!
    Anyway, welcome to APUG! It's a great place to call home.

    ... Hmmm..., f5.13 @ 1/23 should do it.
