    Jeez. I was looking for something else and found a bag of 1997 film. 35 rolls.
    Some F-16 and FA-18 that have almost certainly been retired. Plus some choppers and other stuff.

    At about $10 a roll I would throw them out and buy a decent DSLR with a kit lens. You haven't missed the photos in 20 years.

    Don't throw them away.

    I would seriously consider the idea of developing yourself. The cost of some developing equipment and C41 chemicals will be far cheaper than getting them developed at current prices at a commercial lab.

    If you're worried about space, you just need a bathroom to develop. A darkroom is only necessary if you are going to wet print. Save your money for the scanning.

    If you can't find a one-person shop nearby who will take care with the old film, then develop the film yourself.

    There are some things that you have to pay attention to, but nothing you can't learn. Practice on a recently-purchased roll just to see how it goes. Then you've got your negatives, which can be scanned.
