Habits for Highly Effective Outdoor Journaling
If you've ever camped when the clouds rolled in you understand waterlogged pain. And if you're like me - a perpetual note taker shadowed by Pig Pen's little black storm cloud, here are some handy items to pack along with your raingear.
- Waterproof notebooks: Both field books and spiral bound notepads come with waterproof pages. Even if your tent floods or you're caught in a deluge, those precious notes won't get washed away.
- Weatherproof paper: Ideal for fieldwork or printing out topographical maps this durable paper can be folded and unfolded as often as needed and can be written on when wet. Sound too good to be true? Although you can write on it using standard ink - even underwater - it won't take pencil.
- Waterproof pens: If you're going to use waterproof paper, you might as well have a rainproof pen. Surprisingly affordable, these pens not only write in wet conditions, they work at any angle and any temperature.
- Weatherwriter: If you're only out for the day or feeling particularly lucky, bring standard paper and use this shielded, waterproof clipboard.
