Does anyone know where I can get a log book from? At the moment I am using an old excercise book, but would like something a little neater. I like to record mileage, fuel, where we have been, and add the occasional piccy etc. etc.

maybe if you are near a marine supplier or ships chandlers they might have one sure they have them on the Starship Enterprise as well.

Would this type of thing, primarily designed for business vehicle use, be of any use to you Boatman?

They also do a couple of travel journals

Or this, from Amazon is probably more likely to meet your needs

On second look, maybe not.

I started keeping a log on my lap top when I first got Heidi. Now it has grown to:

Mileage Log - Also converts Ks to miles
Fuel used and Cost - Also gives L/100k and MGP
Gas Purchased and Cost
Campsite Fees - Also records Deposits paid and future payments to be made
Other Expenses - Ferry Costs etc
Repairs and Servicing

Each has its own page in the Workbook. I used excel

It would be simple to add a section in the same folder to record your thoughts and pictures. Imm I think I'll start that off this weekend.

I simply called the folder Heidi's Log.

You can then save it, e-mail it home or print it as required

My partner says I am anally retentive for filling all this rubish in.

wouldn't call it rubbish after all a sudden increase in fuel or gas consumption would show up and certainly be worth investigating

Thanks everyone for your suggestions. The Amazon option is looking favourite. I am a bit worried about just using my laptop, in case a) it crashes or b) I press the wrong key and delete everything. Thanks again. Boatman

I keep all my logs in excel spreadsheets on my PDA. It is also used for my Tomtom satnav.

It's an Acer N35 with built in flip-up satnav receiver. Great piece of kit. I back up to PC at home and laptop with us in MH.

Microsoft Works has a spreadsheet template called Vehicle Log!!

If you're worried about 'loosing' it, just back it up to a floppy or RW CD now and again.
