I'm very encouraged by the ease of development. 40+ years ago things weren't so easy so I stuck to B&W. I have 40-50 rolls of Kodacolor and Fujicolor hiding around here that go back at least 10 years or so. I think it will be very cost effective to develop them myself. I might try 4x5 color also. My darkroom is well equipped to handle that size for developing and printing.
The next step will be printing with RA-4 but that will be another thread.
Thank you all for the great input!
