Was at a birthday party for a friend's young son. And when it was piņata time, they had nothing to hang it up with. So I unravelled the fob on my SAK Farmer and the piņata was hung. On with the party.

The fob had about six feet of cordage in a hangman's knot. Easy to unravel and retie, if you don't mind the "memory" from the knot when you deploy the cord.

i had to share this. Its not an emergency to me but it was to my wife. She had just colored her hair that day and needed a shower cap to do something so the affect wasn't altered. She was bummed until I pulled one out of my EDC kit.

Why a shower cap in my EDC? I take shower caps from hotels (in the tight little package the size of a condom) because they are essentially zero weight vapor barriers that in a pinch will hold in heat on my head if I suddenly get stuck in a rain/cold situation. I have them in all my camelbak and trail running packs, my bike tool kit when I wouldn't have my normal EDC kit on me for workouts.
Don't just survive. Thrive.

Not exactly do or die, but last weekend I had to use the bandana out of my PSK to pre-filter spring runoff water from a mountain fed creek that had a lot of sediment etc which could of proven very disruptive to the digestive system if I had just treated the water with purification tablets alone.
Earth and sky, woods and fields, lakes and rivers, the mountain and the sea, are excellent schoolmasters, and teach some of us more than we can ever learn from books.
