My Opinion:

I paid full price for my hiking journal. The opinions stated here are honest and mine alone.

When first navigating the BearInMind Logbook Website I was skeptical of the company. It needs work to become user-friendly and give me a better shopping experience.

Then while I was checking out, I have a moment when I realize it is shipping from Hong Kong. Oh no, how much is this going to cost? To my surprise, the shipping to Wisconsin is only $3.

How long will it take to get here? It arrived just short of two weeks of me placing my order.

I am excited by the speed it was delivered and like the packaging.

To try the journal out right away, I grab a pencil and enter my last hike (Hiking Cleopatra’s Needle at Mill Bluff).

I don’t like the way the pencil transfers to other pages when I close the book. So next I try a pen. But a pen is susceptible to smearing. Lastly, I used a sharpy. It is the clear winner in my opinion (see video below).

Since opening the hiking journal, I have had it with me every time I hike. Other hikes I have utilized my logbook for are Cave of the Mounds and Willow River.

I would recommend BearInMind Logbooks. The waterproof stone paper is nice and having a layout to record my hikes is useful. Taking time right away to make notes in my hiking journal helps to have accurate information later.
