You go to a men's suit store and get one of their disposeable zip
up garment bags. Put a hanger in it. Then straighten out another
hanger. Form it into a circle and tape it up near the top to keep
the bag in an open position. If you also tape up the hanger
opening you'd have a dust free film dryer.

By the way. On ebay last week I saw the cutest Durst enlarger.
Made for travel. Packed up in a suit case. You could probably
rewire it for 12 volt light source and plug it into your car
lighter. Also, just to keep it Leica oriented - on ebay - a Leica
Film Printer - 30's vintage - apparently it took a spool of 35mm
film or paper and allowed to contact print selective frames from
developed negatives - seems perfect for your adventure.
