CP Goerz - thank you very much for your precious practical advice - I will keep that in my mind and try to plan - to anticipate the dilemma of Friday night - stay in the darkroom till' early hours or go to bed and leave the house before light to get some images...
Vaughn, thank you so much for sharing your experience. Much appreciated. And thank you even more for sharing your workflow. I am going to re-read it and try to get some inspiration for my own.
Best of luck to you and your boys!
