EDC

EDC 6/19/17 To 6/22/17 

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.

Eco-Drive watch band fix.

Been almost a month (tomorrow! ), but I finally got around to finding my spare spring bars and tool for them, and fixing my EcoDrive Diver. 

Some re-bending the end piece,  take apart clasp to lay it flat, seat the pin, take it apart cause I had the band upside down lol, re seat it right, assemble clasp.

 5, maybe 8 minutes total. Easy peasy. Just wish getting and replacing the lost bezel ring could be that easy.

EDC Early/Mid June 2017

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.

Gum tin improved.

The Camel snus tin I’ve been using for my gum has been working great. With the seal in it, it’s water tight, at least keeping out sweat or any other moisture I get in my pockets. 

And it’s durable, even though its dented some from being pressed in the pocjet, the gum isn’t crushed or mangled. 

My only problem was the snus advertisement that it was.  

I don’t particularly care what other people do, and I try not to care what people think of what I do. But, I don’t want to be seen as possibly using snus. Or just seen as doing something that I don’t do, regardless of what… 

 So I dug out a can of paint. Was going to use basic black, but found this small can of Krylon that I had. It was an almost exact match to the blue my truck used to be. 

Truck hasn’t been that color for 5.5 years, didn’t need to keep it anymore, so might as well, right? 🙂 

Voila;

6-2-17 EDC

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!

New Watch Works

New little project. Quartz pocket watch my Dad bought me years ago, that has recently stopped running, on the right.  

New mechanical donor watch on the left. 

Either the works from the new one will go in the other case, or the lid from the old one will go on the new one… 

Lid hinges look pretty close, will try swapping lids first. 

If that don’t do it, I’ll pull the guts, and see about making a custom spacer ring to hold the new works in the other case.

This week, April to May 2017 transition, EDC, and Alaska outdoors.

(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.

Look close, you’ll see three swans in this slough;
