Prompted by both a thread on the Field Nuts group and a great post on The Finer Point, here are my pocket notebooks from late 2010 to the present, not counting the ones I am still using. Pictured above, 114 Full Field Notes. Below, other branded books, including the number/alphabet books that might be too large/thick to qualify for this category.

I have been meaning to do something like this for a while. But:

1) It feels like bragging.

2) It feels like confessing to a problem.

3) I am lazy.

I have a small stash of empty Field Notes and assorted other pocket notebooks around, but they will soon move to the full pile. I keep them in a Sam Adams box that is literally splitting because I am a creature of habit and have stuffed way more into that space than really fit.

  1. 114 Full Field Notes‽ You must be writing a lot! It would be really interesting to know what kind of things you are recording or to see how you structure your Field Notes.

  2. Hello!

    Would you be interested in selling any of your extras? I’m looking for 3 packs of Northerly, American Tradesman, Traveling Salesman, Red Blooded and/or Fire Spotter, Ravenswing, and Just Below Zero.

    THANKS!
