    Based on a "favorite" YouTube reviewer discussion on another thread, I started looking at the Midori (now Traveler's Company) Traveler's Notebook as an option for random journaling and capturing joke notes. The version I bought was the normal size, black leather starter set and ordered a ruled insert along with a card of expansion bands. I'm only a few days into the ownership, but really like the idea.

    I use a Ruled insert to capture some random thoughts and/or life observations. No real "discipline" to the effort, just as the mood strikes me. I use a Blank page insert for more free-think joke notes and sketches for the purpose of reviewing later to formalize them into proper joke structure.

    The system has a lot of different insert options by both Midori and other manufacturers (very popluar among the female user population) and can be used as Day Planners, Trip Planners, poetry, song writing or any other desired creative outlet.

    Here is the YouTube link that was from a pipe tobacco reviewer that got me started: Stuff And Things Review: Midori Traveler's Notebook

    Just watched several of his videos, would be an elegant way to keep tobacco notes

    I like the IDEA of them, but I know if I got one it would never get used. I've made several attempts to journal personally, tobacco notes, fountain pen ink cataloging... I always lose interest in it.

    They always seemed a little expensive to me for just a square of leather with a couple holes punched in it with elastic bands. Nice, though.

    Top bound spiral notebook for me. Inserts and covers are too fussy I think. Looks nice though.

    I enjoy his reviews, I hoped I would win one of those, but nope. IMHO the leather would look nice after years of use..
    (Whatever you do, don't read the comments below this video, with a troll over commenting about the fact that he has tattoos, instead of watching the review and accepting it for what it is.. wow..)

    Last night were at dinner with friends and the woman told about her dad keeping a small journal his adult life.. they found out on certain days he had a TC at the bottom of the page, it meant "took a chance" and had sex with his wife.

    I like the reviewer and his presentations. I watched another of his journal reviews the other day. I like that one better. All of them are too expensive, IMO. The japanese one appears to be made from bonded leather too, it doesn't look like top grain stuff.
    I have a little leather journal that I made years ago and can't find it right now. I plan to buy a chunk of leather and make one similar to the reviewed ones. I think the cover needs to be a bit larger, and have a flap that closes the thing. I really like the idea of holding them in. Experimentation must ensue...

    I actually enjoyed watching that. That size is too big for me, but I'm going to get one for the moleskin cahier.

    I've read so many books, that it seems that everything has been said before and every thought comes from previously consumed material. So writing down random notes seems pointless as I still suffer from ineffective thinking. We live in a world of gross consumerism and there are more products available each year like this to fill every need we can invent.

    I just journaled my PAD from this morning. LOL Dang.

    Hobie1dog - I get your point; sometimes one wonders from the glut of FB spew whether any of us can track orginal from heard it somewhere. I look at it as a way to put a thought on the shelf even if I may have read it somewhere.

    Ok after reading this post, and watching that video, I have done nothing but read reviews, watch videos, and look at pictures of those traveler notebooks. yeah I've decided that I do want a larger journal like that one, for doodling, and writing short stories.

    There are oodles of hour-long YouTube videos of people showing how they set up their planners and travelers notebooks. It's a whole "community" not unlike pipe smoking in a lot of ways.

    Also, don't forget to then debate and decide:
    Fountain Pen? Nib size?
    Mechanical Pencil? Diameter?
    Micron Archive Pen? Diameter?

    Hobie, do you prefer the 'book style', where the cover just is a 'cover'? Or would you prefer the kind that the back cover is large enough to wrap over the front somewhat and tie shut, protecting the contents?

    I have both styles, but like the kind that flaps over, preferably with magnets hidden, but I have little muscle to work with in my hands now, and writing has become a chore as it's hard to grip pens. So anything that requires hand strength is always taken into account these days.

    I get that; I personally was never very good with a fountain pen. I will say though that while they may not be "collector" quality, there are a lot of starter type fountain pens in the $20-$30 range.

    This vendor has a lot of choices: Goulet Pens

    Eh - buy a $4 Platinum Preppy or an $8 Jinhao X750. If you refill it even a couple of times, it will have paid for itself. They're both good pens and only sometimes need the slightest adjustment out of the box.

    I second this. Start small. The Zebra fountain pens are not bad either for the price ($4).

    Fair question and the essential answer is yes. Since this is an elastic band bound cover, it's highly customizable to the user. For me personally, I don't even have a day planner or business card holder in my binder. I simply use a ruled and blank insert. Random thoughts and joke notes go in mine.

    Congrats on your choices; I think you'll enjoy the quality aspect of the Traveler's Notebook. Key point, Midori manufactures now as The Traveler's Company so you leather stamp would say that versus "Midori" unless you find one that's been in stock for a while.

    As pipesmokingtom called a couple of us on another thread, we're a bunch of "enabling sunzabitches."

    Hobie1dog, that's how I found the video. There was a thread in General Pipe Smoking that talked about favorite Youtube reviewers for pipes and tobaccos. Next thing I know, I own a Traveler's Notebook.

    I'm still amazed at how many YouTube videos there are on Journals, bullet journaling, making them, organizing and decorating them. It was funny to read one of the comments that said," why don't you just go ahead and do the things you need to do, instead of wasting your time writing it down " It seems to be a critical part of some lives these days. My wife inherited some really old books of her great grandfathers and she really enjoyed reading the letters and notes that were found inside. So maybe I'll start writing down thoughts so that when I die, she can learn a lot more about me, my inner demented ways of seeing things.

    Funny you say that, one of my first notes says this: "A journal is a nemesis to a quiet man. It knows his thoughts and secrets. It is both cathartic and risky; the journal can be a bane to the man." Translated, be careful what you put in a journal.

    I have used a travelers notebook for years and I love it. It goes everywhere with me as my commonplace book and have found that its ability to keep multiple books in the same cover to be quite useful. Currently I have my tobacco/ thoughts journal, fishing journal, and a graph insert for work.

    Most of my notes are in MS Excel, Power Point and One Note.
    When I have handwritten notes - I use an iPAD Pro, Apple Pencil, Microsoft one note

    When none of the above works - I use a Composition Book (The same ones my son uses for school)

    Family, small sporty cars, food and drink (Including tobacco) and a nice book!

    I must have watched 60 videos on notebooks the last 3 days. The thing I don't like about the Midori is having that knot in the middle of the back cover, got to be a huge design flaw for a team of Japanese. Others put the elastic band in the middle of the backing so that it doesn't interfere with writing on the RH pages

    So far my favorite is the X47 notebook out of Germany but it's priced like a Mercedes, but built like one. So I'm still looking for my next one.

    That's my new Midori with my new Pilot Metropolitan. I of course had to order some lined inserts as well. I also just bought a Lamy Safari, and a Cross Aventura...along with ink, cartridges, and converters... Now if only I could manage to get some creative thought out of my head...

    I love it

    Hobie1dog. Since buying the travelers notebook, I've started a journal, for the first time in my life. And I'm trying to narrate it, as if someone else is reading it. Hoping, like you said, maybe my daughter will read it after I'm dead.

    Yup pipesmokingtom, it didn't take me long to change my mind. I ordered 3 before ever using one in person. hahaha. And now i will never go back to ballpoints. And yes hobie1dog, I feel very addicted to journals, and notebook "systems" right now.

    And the addiction keeps getting stronger and stronger...

    Ruined an old necklace for it, and used an old pelt from a Fox that my dad killed before I was born, to make a pen loop. And I also made my own folder insert from an old folder as well. Also made my own notebook insert of blank guitar tablature pages, to write my songs down in it. Now I just need staples.
    Someone help me...

    We all thank you for starting this thread. We only have one life and might as well write some important things down in one place. Our relatives will enjoy it later. I just ordered a weighted pen with a big grip on it which will hopefully allow me to use a ink pen better. Found it on a disabled site.

    The number 711 will not escape me, so post 7111 is great to see.

    What a good idea. I'm a leather head as well. My Book book phone case is my latest purchase. I'm currently in the market for a leather pipe pouch.
    I'm gonna have to get a journal too....

    Just ordered my 'traveler's notebook.' Filling it's pages with first chapters and sketches will give me something to do while I'm sitting around stewing over being too poor to travel.

    Also, I bought this one: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01JFPRSQO/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

    LifeSizeHobbit mentioned STuff&Things' review for the midori and I thought I'd mention he(Bradley@Stuff&Things) also reviewed this one glowingly and more recently. Thought I'd share in case someone else wanted to save a few bucks.

    I can see all of us now this fall, traipsing around our favorite walking place, pockets loaded with pipes, tobacco and other pipe related gears. And of course, our stylish new Safari Jackets.

    That is a very good buy.

    My favorite notebook takes A5 sized inserts, which are 5.5x8.5 in size. I cannot find many different inserts for this. The 4.5 inch size is definitely more popular now.

    I found my little journal I made while working in Nicaragua. It holds a standard Moleskine book. Really nice leather was available down there. I have a large piece somewhere that should become a pipe case one day.

    This one is pocket size and holds the pencil inside.
