To the point of the latest topics that have come up. I found that my mind has been focused on recording my adventures. Not only for my posterity but to as many as would read it.

I think the underlying point of giving future generations a chance to experience even a tenth of the traditional joy is to record our ventures. From friend ships made to our simple discoveries . A plethora of examples examples exist. From the books of "traditional bowyers bible and The American semi long bow and its place in a simple life. ( might have butchered the last one.) "

I have a spark in me that recording our knowledge should not stop there. You can say this forum has done just that here. Haha. Its wonderful. I love Ira's history lessons. Well thanks for listening again for a moment.

Lastly ladies and gentlemen I started a simple blog on roaming with my bow. There are alot of places around here to do so and as I learn ill post my new knowledge there.
roamingarchery.home.blog.

I will just leave this here. Its not furthering anything but to post a weekly story of what mischief and stupid shots I got to shooting. Thanks all shoot straight.

I've always kept a log which after many years reads like a book.  My fishing log goes back to '74 and my hunting log to '84.  My son has glimpsed it a few times but I told him it was taboo.  They'll be his soon enough.  He's in there too BTW.  

I don't know how many times I've used them for reference or just remembrance.  Track my progress and failures with every day spent hunting or fishing written within.   When I started them I couldn't imagine how important they would be to me.  Frank

I started a log some years back. Started as notes from what I found worked best for me. I now have a ledger type book with those notes in it. Mine covers hunting, fishing, bamboo fly rod making, making arrows, and Woodworking. I have included bow/arrow setups as well. Sure, all this info could be stored in my laptop or IPad but I am old fashioned in some ways.

I never kept any type of journal. As a youngster, I just didn't see the point. Now that I am older, I wish I had.

In keeping with the treads theme I hope my son and son-in-law find some useful info from my log. Now I am thinking I should add photos.

Ditto that.  I have logged some significant events but a detailed summary would be more meaningful.
