Rite in the Rain?

RITE IN THE RAIN

Anyone heard of or use these products? Sounds like a great product line.

I think it is Chet who had some water resistant Circa gear... ((correct me if I'm mistaken)).

Back to perusing for my original goal. ;P

different page layouts

I've never heard of them before, but I checked out their webpage... They do various page layouts (including grid paper). The coolest things - they do custom layouts, but I don't see a price and they also sell planners. I think it is just normal 6 hole punch, but I'm not sure what size that is.

Chet: you may want to look into this and Circa punch these pages.

Sara: If you don't mind me asking, what was your original goal that led you to a page with waterproof paper?

I've used them

I used "Rite in the Rain" notebooks extensively in the 1990's, when I worked for the U.S. Forest Service in Alaska.

The paper quality is excellent, although the waterproofing on it makes it slippery to the touch and a little difficult to write on. We only used pencils to write due to the extreme environmental conditions (pens don't work very well when they are wet).

I can't think of a lot of reasons that the average organizer nerd would need waterproof paper for. It is a good product though, and won't degrade if it gets wet. Would be great for taking notes during geocaching.

Its for those ideas you

That is actually a great usage idea. I could rig a hanger from the shower curtain... ::the plotting begins::

My wife had less than repeatable comments about when I first got my wireless networking and thought to "road test" the capability by surfing while "perched" on the commode :)

I keep a magazine rack next to the sink and put in it all the catalogs we get in the mail (including Levenger's)

bathroom ideas

I had a friend in high school who claimed the most comfortable seat in the house was the toilet and he also got his best ideas there. When his parents remodeled the basement, the tore out the old toilet. He requested they keep it as extra seating. Last I was there, it was still there. It's been a few years so who knows now.

That being said, any planning/organization product meant for bathroom use would definitely need to be waterproof and should also be something you can spray disinfectant on and clean. I wonder how dry erase boards & markers would fair?

-Kenny

bad idea...

I just had a thought of what it would be like dropping a page-per day planner in the tub. That would make quite a mess!

-Kenny

@Kenny

To be honest... I was just browsing through EBay looking for some new and exotic notebook that might be as uber as my new "Paperchase" journal... and one thing led to another like usual and I found myself on their website "oooo"ing and "awwww"ing. :P

All you'd need to complete the ensemble...

is the famous fountain pen that writes under whipped cream.

Kudos to anyone who recognizes that one :)

These work great

These work great if you need waterproof paper. I use them in the field (I'm an archaeologist) with pencil. Never had any trouble with them.

My cousin is a paleontologist... I always wanted to be an archeologist or paleontologist... digging and unearthing something spectacular for the whole world to enjoy and marvel at :)

Yeah, that's the fantasy

Yeah, that's the fantasy anyway lol.

I used them in Iraq

I used a few of the Rite in the Rain products in Iraq (mainly the 4 5/8" x 7 1/4" bound books). They were great. Especially when I had sweat rolling off of me on convoys or actually getting caught in the rain. Yes it rains in the desert and it rained a lot on us. I usually kept my squad sensitive info (equipment serial numbers, solders last 4, mission orders, etc) in it that way I wouldn't have to worry about constantly having to rewrite everything. They were very durable too. I kept mine in my leg pocket for about 90% of the time I was there.

The Planner is a recent addition.....

The Rite in the Rain planner is a recent addition to the product line and from the website comes in various combinations, I am a dealer and have not yet added this item to my catalog, as I was waiting to see how they would move, I also have been using these items for years as a field mechanic in the Timber industry in the Pacific NW, it was a must have and have never met a timber cruiser or log buyer without it. The Tactical Line is very popular and holds up very well, from the feedback I have received from various tactical hot spots around the world.

Pencils are the best I think, they do offer a pen it is made by fisher the ink is supposed to adhere to the paper better the fine point has alot to do with that to not laying down too much ink to smudge before it dries but once dry won't fade
