I go through about 5 rolls a day when traveling, so I just bring
a small collapsible cooler and keep everything in it, along with
whatever I pick up out of the cold case for lunch.  A week or two
doesn't really bother it *that* much.  For that matter, my
camera case *is* a small collapsible cooler.  Lunches just don't
look worth stealing.  

I doubt I'd take only pro into a hot desert... I'd probably bring both
amateur and pro films there unless I could get the pro films out for
processing easily.  I've done slide processing myself, but it's a pain.

I'm not a color print person... since I'm always taking photos for
teaching, I prefer slides, and let the labs make prints from the
few slides I want.  Works better than prints to slides.  ;-)
