I'm egotistical enough to post what I carry.

Keep in mind that I'm probably as close to being a member of the unprepared masses as I can be and still enjoy this forum. In the event of a catastrophe, I fully expect to be rescued before I die. (Of course, I also expect that DH will be the one rescuing me.)

My EDC is my key ring and wallet. If I'm outside of the house, and usually when I'm inside I have them in my pockets. Usually when I'm not within walking distance of home I also have a mini-backpack or the diaper bag, depending on whether or not I have DD with me (not to mention the jump bag in the car).

Key ring:
- Keys for both cars (mine and DH's)
- House keys (house, garage, mailbox)
- whistle
- fingernail clippers
- photon flashlight (courtesy of DH, after he showed me how cool it was)
- Leatherman Micra (also from DH, at my request after seeing the scissors)
- mini AAA card
- Disney key fob (it's the easiest way to identify my keys to a stranger if I loose my keys)
- When I used to work far from home, I also carried the key to the home of a friend who lived close to work so I could spend the night at her home in case I couldn't make it home. I actually ended up using it once.

Wallet:
- 3 credit cards
- at least $20 cash, usually more
- family photos (self, DH, and DD)
- driver license
- large AAA card
- health & dental insurance cards
- calling card

Mini-backpack (when I'm out and about by myself):
- cell phone
- PDA

Diaper bag (when I'm out and about with DD):
- cell phone
- PDA
- baby supplies (a really huge list that I won't bother you with, except for the stuff that are also useful for non-baby situations)
- wipes & napkins
- meds (stingez, asprin, midol, benydral, neosporin, bandaids)
- SAK
- extra hair elastics & comb
- pens, paper, ruler, clipboard
- snacks
- plastic grocery bags
- pool pass

I keep finding new things that would be good to carry in the diaper bag, like some tape, envelopes, etc. However, DH thinks that the diaper bag is too heavy already, and it seems like my diaper bag has more crap in it than anyone elses. I don't carry water on a regular basis in the diaper bag because it is so heavy, but occassionally I clip a plastic bottle to the bag or throw one in the bag itself.

Welcome ...
What do you think of the Suunto?
I haven't had a chance to play with one yet, because they aren't too common down here.

Once again I am going to crawl up on my stump and remind everyone that Bic lighters are not reliable after they get some age on them. I have always preferred Cricket lighters. I have a handful that are ten years old or more and they rarely fail to light. Never depend on a flint butane lighter. The flint degrades over time. And finally, remember, if you have a butane lighter, no matter what the brand, that is full but fails to light, don't toss it. Hold it open and light it with any fire source you have. Don't waste that butane. Crickets aren't as common as Bics. I have had the best luck finding them in tobacco stores.

Recon and anyone else interested. I noted your list included the Buck 110, a great knife. I was in WalMart yesterday and they have a glut of Buck 110's in a collector's commemorative tin and a gold colored deer head key chain with a bottle opener.
Surprisingly, the cellophane sealed package was only $23.44.
Knife made in USA and the rest made in China. It is a great looking package and very cheap. I never saw a 110 under thirty dollars. Make a great Xmas present or just put it up and let it appreciate in value. The tin is about 8" X 5 3/4" X 2" deep.
