Hi Scott,
I'm also a slc film shooter. I shoot 4x5, 5x7, and 8x10. I don't even own a digital camera. I've been working at a small custom lab here for the the last 13 years and have seen the demise of film photography. Good to hear your going the opposite direction. I see digital images every day and they just don't compare to a well exposed neg.
It sounds like your off and runnig with the darkroom but if you have any questions feel free to drop me a line.

Rich
