I always carry a pocket notebook and pen, but not as a journal, just to help me remember stuff, since I seen to have a bad case of CRS. Closest thing to keeping a journal/diary is a small digital camera...

Rules of thumb:

1) You can never overlog but you may well need that which you didn't bother to log.

2) A Rough Log and a Smooth Log are both legal documents under Federal Maritime Law.

3) Sign, or at the least, initial all of your Log entries.

4) All entries should be dated. It is good to include the time that the Log entry was made, as well.

It is a remake of "The Omega Man" but IMHO it is better than the original which is an unusual stand for me. It does deal with a lot of things that the original movie didn't.

"The Omega Man" was of course itself a remake of The Last Man on Earth starring Vincent Price. I guess Hollywood is getting strapped for ideas. grin

They've been strapped for ideas for a long time now. Notice the trend of turning old TV shows into movies, i.e. Dukes of Hazzard, Starsky & Hutch, The Beverly Hillbillies, Bewitched, The Brady Bunch, Charlie's Angels, Fat Albert, etc.

The list goes on and on and on.

Ya the movie wasn't as good as the book. It is the same concept but it is totally different than the novel. I totally recommend the book. Scary as all hell and some great twists.

This is the 3rd or 4th movie remake.

Norad,

I like that idea!!!

I'm glad to see I'm not alone. I was afraid I was being my usual obsessive-compulsive-odd-self.

I'm a nurse so I document anything and everything mostly in a chronological order just like my nurses' notes.

When I'm hiking or backpacking I'll jot down the time and location and a small note/ reference word/phrase in my pocket notebook when ever I stop to rest or something occurs that I want to note, so I can log the information into my hiking journal later.

I often, no always regret not jotting something down out of the delusion of "I'll remember that".

I agree with you that it is an acquired skill and habit.

Just as a personal preference, I like the little 4x3 marble memo pads. The spirals on the notepads tend to get caught on my shirt pocket, etc.

If you can't find room for a 3x5 notebook or a couple of index cards, and a pencil, you are doing something wrong.

You use it do things like sketch maps, keep track of time walked on a given bearing, et al. Don't trust your memory, ever. An eye witness is the worst form of witness in the world.

And in turn is based on the book *drum roll* I am Legend by Richard Matheson.

Which wasn't that good. I'm probably going to go see this, though.

If you have room for a 3x5 notebook, you have room for some food. Hunting and fishing are POSSIBLE sources of food, but as any hunter or fisherman can attest to, sometimes you come away with nothing.
