Ok, a couple of these are from late June, but most are this month.
Everything was from the easy to wash category… Had a potentially messy plumbing job for a few days. Looks like my trusty razor knife missed the pic. And my tape measure. Hmm. Lol.
Ya think I have a thing for blue? Ha! Unplanned color coordination…
That’s what it’s been for this week, and most of last… Probably most of next too.
Really thankful for my hanks lately, from greasy rusty hands, to mud, to bug splatters and road grime on my sunglasses–had to stop and clean them several times today.
Different knife than the last few days, otherwise the same… Tools have all been getting a heavy workout lately.
First time I’ve carried this knife since I got it more than a month ago. I like it! It even got a workout splicing wires while hot wiring something on its first day!
This week, more or less.
(No, I haven’t taken up snus. Needed a tin for my gum, got tired of the cardboard packages getting mangled, crushed, wet, etc. These tins are durable and have a rubber seal; water tight.)
Alaska state bird is out in full force;
Went boondocking, checking out some river roads one day, grabbed my 380 for just in case… Should have had something bigger since it’s late enough I know the bears are out, but this was handy. Thankful I had it on hand when I had an… let’s say odd, encounter with a two legged animal… Not threatening or dangerous, but, disconcerting, and.. odd. The gun was reassuring.
Yes Very few of these EDC pics are different, or not much different… If it works, it works, and I don’t change it often.

Bloody Big moose track on a sand bar
Along the Middle Fork of the Chena.
And along the North Fork (also the Chena)
Look close, you’ll see three swans in this slough;
Other than the fact that I broke my run of old school/traditional, with the pocket watch/match safe/small jack. ( that lasted about 2.5 weeks!)
In changing knives, I left the house without one (gasp!) Intending to grab my Vic apprentice from where it’s been living in my ATV glove box.
3 or 4 hours later, when the ATV came up in conversation, I realized I’d forgoten to get the knife before leaving the property…
(Bigger gasp! )
Thankfully, and amazingly with the various things I helped a friend with, I never needed a blade all day!
(Ok, technically there is a blade on the Spirit, a veritable laser… I just never use it, and rarely remember that it’s there. I did remember it when I realized I was knifeless, but if I’d needed to cut, I probably wouldn’t have remembered it! Lol)
So this little beauty got carried for all of maybe 10 minutes after I got home.. ha!
Still basically the same.
Still the same on purpose actually. Wanted to carry the same basic setup as long as possible, a bit of a test, since anymore I change knife daily, or every other day.
I also wanted to see how long I could go with the pocket watch, no wrist watch. That’s actually been great, since I am OCD about time, knowing what it is at all times… First few days drove me batty!
Now though, with the watch not there at a glance, it taking more effort to get to it, I’m not looking at it much. I’m more relaxed because I’m not constantly checking for on time/enough time/out of time/how long it’s taking, etc..
Plus matches instead of a lighter, it was the old school/vintage carry that to me fit the jack knife when I got it. Just wanted to see if I could go for a while with the older items..
Two weeks so far, to yesterday. 🙂
Today will get a slight change. Details after I get my mail 😀
