OK, while picking yesterdays carry, I got to thinking about how often I change up what I carry; pretty often!
I decided I need to do a “time test” and stick to a defined set of gear for a set time span and see how I like it long term. Made me think of the challenge a buddy gave me at the start of Jan, a 1 month trial of a theory on getting things done every day(which worked! and I stayed with it almost every day for the whole month!)
I thought, naw, a month is too long, go for a week like some other guys do… I’ve ended up with the same EDC core set for a week before, just naturally because it worked for what I was doing, so I know I can do it on purpose…
But yeah, if I know I can do thats, its not much challenge is it?
A month it is then!
So, I had just previously picked what I was carrying for yesterday, and I almost re-picked based on other preferences, more proven/trusted gear that I use etc. But that defeats the purpose in a way, so I stuck with what I had, and that days choices are now my carry for the month of February 2014.
You guys are gonna get sick of pics of the same stuff over and over for a month, I’ll bet!
So, what I have, is;
RAT Model 2
Case Bluegrass Bone Circle ‘C’ Peanut(TrueSharp SS blades)
Rofis JR10, and Olight i3S EOS
Green clover Zippo with Thunderbird pipe insert,
Bit Kit #3, (the one MangeD700 sent me),
I’ll still be rotating my watches depending on what kinda work I’m doing.
And will still have some things that never leave my EDC like my watch case pill fob, comb, money clip(will stick with the buffalo coin clip), and phone.
Will also still have my back up winter light, the headlamp in my jacket-Its just too useful in emergency dark work to give up. But my backup knife, screw driver thats sometimes in the jacket Will Not be carried, keeping me using the core tools I’ve chosen for the month.
Will try to keep y’all updated on usage, or failures; times where I would have been better served by some of my other gear. Will especially mention any days where I normally anticipate certain work and take certain gear in anticipation of it… and report how this gear worked out on those days.
