    Excellent photos! You may have just sold me on a Konrad just now. I think I may just go straight to the Neponset, though. I love the amount of line variation with it. The green Giant Sequoia is growing on me, too. So many pens go onto the wishlist after the Thursday Things! I sometimes look through it and can’t help but laugh! My favorite pen to take anywhere is my Kaweco Sport. The ink I usually have in it is Diamine Blue Black.

      That’s a trusty and reliable pairing 🙂

    Oh, how I do love backpacking or just hiking in the woods and mountains. Waking up without a tent to a rising sun’s beams shining through the canopy of the trees. The smells, fog wisps in the woods. Later my wife and I made overnight backpacking trips along the Appalachian Trail. I wasn’t using fountain pens back in those days, but if I were to do it again my pens would most likely include my Karas Kustoms Fountain K, my Lamy 2000, and probably my Metropolitan. Then again my green ebonite Konrad. With a Goulet nib it is a very dependable and nice writing pen, nicely wet too. Of course I’d have my Traveler’s Passport Notebook, and probably another like the Field Notes.

    All you younger pen lovers, I sure wish I’d kept a journal of all my hikes and camping trips – memory fades, ink on paper not so much. Who was I camping with when we saw those bear tracks in the snow, that led to where we set up our tent later? They were college buddies, but not sure of the details.

    I’m still waiting for a Thursday Things that does not push one of my buttons – this really speaks to me, as I love the woods, mountains, and spending time in them. Again, today’s theme is one of my all time favorites (how many times has that happened?) and such perfect photos and collected pens, notebook, and all the items. Again, you made my Thursday very special.

      I was very much hoping you’d enjoy this one, Tom. It looked a lot like something you would be drawn to!

      Tom and Goulet-Team really nailed it with this one. Tom, I’d definitely take my Karas Kustoms Fountain K and my Kaweco Al Sport as well as my Midori (yes, I still call it that!). Your admonishments are exceptionally valid! Younger pen lovers: take -and keep- your notes, hand-drawn maps and sketches!

      Well done. Pleasant memories have been reawakened!

        Thanks Randy, so many happy memories are now somewhat blurred by the years. Write it down before you lose it.

    Would it be possible to possible to get higher resolution shots of these blog photos?
    4K would be amazing. They work amazingly as MacBook wallpapers but the resolution could be a bit higher. Even if not on the post itself, a separate download would be amazing. Pretty much all your blog post shots are amazing. Good work photographer!

    I purchased a brown Sequoia about a month before my wife and I traveled to Redwoods National and State Parks. The Sequoia went to visit the sequoias. I needed a big pen to write about big trees. We enjoyed our time in Redwoods as well as Lassen Volcanic National Park.

      Fantastic! I hope you and the pen greatly enjoyed the adventure together.
