The notebooks are a friends fault, since he got me into Instagram, and thats where I saw them…. πŸ˜‰ :p 

I figure an Adventurer has to have adventure logs, right? πŸ˜€

Good quality little 3.5″x5.5″ books, great build like Field Notes, maybe even a slightly better feel than FNs(lheavier paper and slightly heavier covers). Great heavy paper, and a cool layout too; They have 48 pages, and each page has places for date, location, conditions, companions, and notes. 

Their from a colaboration between Word. brand notebooks and some company I’ve never heard of called Bradley Mountain. I’m not sure if its a limited run… I hope not, I can see using a lot of these in the future. Then again at 3 for about $10, their also like FNs in economy; cheap enough that you can buy a LOT of the ones you like and have then ahead of time. πŸ™‚ 

They come in black, and yellow covers. I went with basic black, I thought the yellow was a bit too “outdoorsy” in the “Here I am!” trying to be visible sense…

The pen is the fault of whoever put a Apollo space pen in the EDCforums pass around box a couple years back… ;) :cool:   I loved that pen for the total of… what was it, a month? before it went MIA… :rolleyes:

Been meaning to get another Space Pen since, and finally got around to it. Wanted a green or blue Bullet, but funds are low right now so I settled for a basic chrome one.  Love it so far, its shiny and smooth but a good writing grip, and more compact to pocket than I thought it would be.

Good heft too. That was my only complaint on the Apollo model, which is half plastic built I found out, and is super light, almost the the “cheap feel” point. This one feels a lot more Solid.

And for those that don’t know about the wonders of the Space Pens; Its a special ink in a special pressurized cartridge, that will write upside down, or at any angle, under water, over grease, in zero gravity and from -30F to 150F. They were literally designed for and are/were used by NASA and in space.

Now, I do find it funny that the extreme cold rating that they are good to, the temp they apparently picked for as cold as you could need to write in for a extreme use pen, is, in fact 35 deg warmer than I have seen, and at least 25 deg warner than times I have needed a pen to work!  Leave it to the state of Alaska to one up the needs of NASA πŸ˜‰

  1. Space, the final frontier. Alaska, the last frontier. Yeah, they needed to explore space first. Thus, when they are done exploring space, NASA will build the Alaska bullet pen….

    • Gonna be a while before the AK pen if they finish space first… I mean, outer space is pretty big πŸ˜‰
