By now, subscribers have started receiving their subscription box containing Volume 211, but that’s not the only surprise tucked inside that little brown box. We threw a little something extra in there just for our subscribers.
The first is a Genuine Incense-cedar 7W1 pencil slat (the same kind used to make many of your favorite pencils). This slat will probably be the first thing you notice when you open your subscription, even if it isn’t the first thing you see. The cedar aroma from this freshly cut slat is intoxicating for us pencil people.
The slat features the story of the 211 on one side, and a map of Incense-cedar growing regions and the John Muir Trail on the other. We worked with the students at the Weber Technical Institute in Stockton, CA to design and laser engrave these slats, and they did a wonderful job.
The second surprise comes in the form of some replacement erasers for your 211 pencils. This is the first time we’ve created a pencil with a brown eraser, so we thought you might like to have some to hold on to.
Thanks again to everyone for subscribing. If you’d like to snag some of these subscriber-exclusive goodies while they’re still available, you can subscribe here.
