    trading beer and sandwhiches to build a darkroom

    I have been out of LF photography for too many years, having lost access to a friends darkroom (He is 85 now). Looking at my LF cameras and feeling totally dejected and overwhelmed.

    Needing some inspiration. How about everyone stopping by my house and help building a darkroom in 1 or 2 days? Free beer and Sandwhiches provided . . . . . . . . . . . . . :-)

    Where are you? All you need are some sawhourses, a couple of buckets, and some black plastic. I can staple black Visqueen really fast but I drink a lot of beer...

    Anyone got one of those hats that hold beers cans? I work much quicker with both hands free!

    Kreig,

    I am certainly fond of beer and sandwiches. Are you close to Grantville, Georgia? It's about an hour south of Atlanta. Ha, ha!

    Tell us about your cameras, what kind of photography you did/want to do.

    Best,

    What kind of beer? If it's that watery American stuff forget it. You want quality work, you use *real* beer like the stuff we have up here in Canada.

    For those of you overseas not understanding the fuss here, American beer is - well - imagine dilution B for HC-110 - the 1:31 ratio. American beer is very similar - take any real beer, and mix with water at a similar ratio, that's about it. If using Guiness, mix at least 1:100.........

    Joe,

    Isn't Moleson now owned by my local brewing company - Coors? Oh Canada!

    I have to agree with you however, if I am being put to work then I will need a beer with flavor! Several of our local Colorado brewers will do - Fat Tire, Flying Dog, Breckinridge Brewery - any beer with color and flavor!

    If it says Budwiser or Coors, then, well, the sandwiches had better be REALLY good!

    Kreig, If you're near Chicago then count me in. But it must be Belgian beer!

    I can help if it's near Burlington, Vermont. But I'll need Goya Ginger Beer. Alcohol makes me sleepy. Make sure there's chips and dip, preferably server by a younger nice-looking blonde.
