“I created the notebook I always wanted.”
When I started hiking back in 2015 I typed notes on my phone. Journalling on the trail is good for my mental wellbeing, but it was a cold and impersonal way of remembering the miles I’d hiked. Saving battery was important, my notes weren’t organised and I couldn’t get creative. I wanted to stop taking notes on my phone and get away from the distraction, but couldn’t find a notebook good enough for the job.
Any notebook I tried was too wide, too tall, too heavy and would fall apart after a few days. I wanted to create a waterproof, strong, lightweight and environmentally-responsible notebook designed specifically for thru-hiking. So I did and decided to call it Thrunotes.
I started Thrunotes in 2020 using the savings I had left over from the Pacific Crest Trail. After coming home early due to the pandemic I got to work, and over the coming months designed, tested and perfected Thrunotes to be the waterproof notebook I’d always wanted.
Thrunotes is enabling our customers to record miles of memories in a more meaningful and creative way than with a phone, on a medium which will stay structurally sound on a thru-hike while having an extremely low impact on the environment.
I hope you enjoy using Thrunotes on your next adventure. It’s time to get off the phone and flip thru the miles.
