Journal / Note Book

One of things i like to keep is a journal, this contains all sorts of information from diagrams of traps to spoon designs and even random thoughts and little notations of things i want to reference or study in greater detail at home, i also like to note plant facts, such as edibility and my own take on what they actually taste like compared to what you may read or hear elsewhere, it's not a definitive reference work by any means and unless I'm in a fixed camp or on what i call "a mission", i tend not to take my main A5 Journal with me, preferring to take my smaller A6 sized version (pictured) or even a flip note pad with me, at the end of each trip, i transpose the information recorded and update my main journal with drawings/diagrams and the information ive recorded on things I've discovered and learnt or want to investigate further.


  1. Lately, I've been finding Composition Books that are Quad Ruled (4 squares to the Inch) in the back to school supplies clearance racks. These composition books are slightly smaller than a regular notebook and are cheap. I prefer quad ruling because it is easier for me to make diagrams or maps. I have surveyor's notebooks that have a similar layout, but I just like these notebooks. I don't know if you have anything similar in the UK.

    1. They sound ideal little note books Bill, not seen anything like those over here
