Sticker Addict

Hello, my name is Jim and I’m addicted to stickers….

I have a large box in which I store most of my hiking/camping gear excludimg my down quilts. The gear box is fairly large and a dark green in color, but I wanted it to look better. As I made purchases upgrading my gear over the last year or so, if they were not included for free, I purchased decals when they were available. There were also a few stickers I purchased because I wanted them (for example, the “Shug” sticker).

Things were looking promising, both in gear and decorating the gear box. However, I have decided I’m pretty content with my gear and probably won’t make any major changes (maybe some summer quilts, but that’s about it). My lightweight packing list is addressed in a previous blog post if you are interested my gear list (it needs minor updating). Even after my upgrades and other decal purchases, the gear box looks still looks sad and there’s WAY too much green. So, on the advice of a hammockforum member, I took an afternoon (or two) and sent emails to various companies or used the “Contact Us” section on the webpage requesting a sticker for my gear box.

It was very successful as I will have lots of stickers now! My gear box will now be spectacularly smothered in vinyl goodness. I purchased a few decals, some were given to me by others, and a few I had to send a self address and stamped envelope in order to receive the decal.

Here’s the “before” picture:

I thought I’d post a list just in case there were other people that wanted to add to their sticker collection. My goal is to have at least one for every letter of the alphabet. As of 5/04/2015, this is the list of stickers I have received and are proudly displayed:
