Recommended Posts

I thinking i am writing my reports wrong, they are too short and are scattered all over the house. I feel like i am doing something wrong.

I think i need to put them in a binder.

Go for it and don't forget to include dated/timed sketches :cool:

I know it helps me to use a computer log program... there are many available.

I use a hard-cover notebook. I then copy data into a spreadsheet. I also copy the report out on SGL which serves as my back-up log :D

I do exactly the same.

Michael's reports were some of the first I came across on this forum and have influenced how I keep my notes and stats.

Spiral bound notebook. Tried hard bound, but the dew and use don't last. It's lovely to look back through old observations and sketches.

I used to collect loads of tree data, I went to IT and asked for the quickest and most convenient data storage and they pointed to my notebook and said "that's it ".

And real notebooks have zero start-up time, and don't have a battery that dies on you halfway through a session. My hardback notebooks are kept inside, as I observe from the garden and pop in to write my notes.
