When I first saw the 3-pack Field Notes I was thrilled. Here was a gift for my eco-biologist daughter, a woman always in the field, with wet boots, an anorek, binoculars and now I'd be able to give her an alternative to her normal small black Moleskine.
And she was indeed thrilled to receive her Field Notes.
But I also got a pack for myself, and surprised myself with how handy they are for my own field trips--sans binoculars, but occasionally with an anorek and boots, but rarely in the wild.
My field trips are most often a long drive, a short walk or a cafe table--but wherever I go, tucked inside my larger journal and/or day planner, is a Field Note.
