In this day and age of electronic wonders like Droids, iPads, Kindles, iPhones... sometimes low-tech is the best technology. You'll almost always find a notepad with me, and often it's a Rite in the Rain pad.
When you're in and out of the inclement weather we seem to get this time of year, my little Rite in the Rain pad holds up. If it gets wet or you spill something on it, drop it in the mud, smear greasy fingers across it, the cover and pages wipe clean and hold together. The basic pads have horizontal lines with vertical dashes creating a grid which makes it easy to sketch out an idea or just jot down some notes.
Usually, I pick mine up at Tractor Supply Co. (TSC), but you can order them online and there are quite a few variations, including some "tactical" pads for those of you who need to maintain your image. The "practical" pads in bright yellow do fine for me because if you drop them while hunting or working in the barn, they're easy to find.
This is a great tool for those of use who seem to be thinking more and remembering less, and best of all... the batteries never go dead. So pick up a couple of Rite in the Rain pads and take some notes...
Go ahead and try it... and if you don't like it, you're out... like... five-bucks.
