Although I do have maps on the PDA, they don't have a GPS unit for it where as the GPS unit has a very basic map set in it so by combining the two I have GPS and good maps. One day when I have some spare money I'll buy a better unit <img src="/images/graemlins/wink.gif" alt="" />

What is the point of this inquiry, and why do you keep bumping it up?

A survival peeping tom? Gathering data for someone? Somebody who wants to know what the "cool kids" are using to be like us?

I'm just at a loss for the possible reasoning to this. If people share, they share, and they usually start a new thread when they do so.

When a man dare not speak without malice for fear of giving insult, that is when truth starts to die. Truth is the truest freedom.

Left wrist: Either a Citizen Eco-Drive World Time Watch or Casio Solar Pathfinder Watch (weekends)

Belt Left Hip: Pager, Treo 650 in a Spec-Ops Brand PDA case with either my Equipped To Survive Limited Edition Sebenza or my Mini-RSK M2HS clipped in beside it. The choice of knife depends on if I am planning on spending a major portion of my day in DC (the Mini).

Belt Right Hip: Office BB and Leatherman Charge Ti with a Mag Solitaire on one side of the holster and a mini Sharpie on the other side of the holster

Left Front pocket: Burton Helios lighter, Burt's Bees lip Balm, Cross Vice Pen, and a handkerchief

Right Front Pocket: EK Ekcessories Triple Cat Key ring, with:
- Ring 1: house keys and membership cards
- Ring 2: Car Key
- Ring 3: TAD Gear Life Capsule whistle with pain killers, Doug Ritter Special Edition MKII Photon Freedom Micro with hands free multi-purpose Photon clip, Sterling Systems Superior Sharpener and 256 meg memory stick
(the Triple Cat allows me to always have ring 3 with me. When I am on reserve weekend ring 1 stays in the car, when traveling in DW car ring 2 stays at home and I clip my key set for her car to ring 3)

Right Rear pocket: wallet

Left Rear Pocket: bandana

Actually, I love these threads and the fact this one has been viewed over 13,000 times means a lot of other folks do too.

I'm always on the lookout for some new gadget/doodad for my already over-stuffed pockets. <img src="/images/graemlins/cool.gif" alt="" />

Actually, I enjoy and learn from this thread as well.

We are all looking for ideas to upgrade.

Perhaps the only sin here is that I haven't taken the time to post my own EDC. It should be a two way street. Are others guilty as well?

The picture above is still pretty accurate for me. A couple of notable changes however...

I switched from the large Sebenza to the large RSK and I swapped an Arc AAA Premium for the Photon. The Photon now lives in my Altoids tin PSK. I may go back to a large Sebbie in the future if TNK ever gets in a left-handed dual silver thumbstub large regular. The darn thing has been on back order for decades <img src="/images/graemlins/frown.gif" alt="" />.

I don't see a problem. I see something odd, something curious.

I see someone who's only interest seems to be to peek in people's pockets. We all talk about our EDC in normal conversation here. The information you seek could be easily gleaned from reading the postings. You don't post except to "bump" this up in activity, or at least you haven't in 18 months according to your posting history, which to me seems odd. An inactive member who appears to be looking for specific information, and only on a limited number of threads.

Excuse me, but that pings fairly high on my weird-stuff-o-meter. It's like a guy who isn't a local and parks his car so he can take a walk through the neighborhood without talking to anyone while looking over the houses. Maybe he's a architecture student, maybe he's looking for place closer to work and this is on his list of good neighborhoods, maybe he's casing, maybe he's looking for his ex-wife and kids, who knows? But he's going to make people wonder, and eventually someone is going to ask him if they can help him, becuase they are a concerned member of thier community.

I'm a concerned member of this community. And I'd be shocked if I was the only one who thought something looked a little strange.

just curious to see what everyone carrys on there person. being in charge at the local police impound lets me see a lot of wierd stuff, that people carry, and its just curiosity as to why I bump the threads here and on other boards. People kind of let threads go away for months if someone does not keep them at the top, and bumping them gets alot of more people involved. comeing from someone whos been here in less time then me, blah I have nothing further to say, on that matter other then reading you your rights and seeing whats in your pockets, haha.
