A few years ago my parents told me about a similar story, I don't know what the year was but I wasn't born yet. Anyhow, a guy in a Jeep, yeah, a Jeep... Had gotten stuck in a ditch and my dad used his Ford Ranger to pull the guy out. If I got stuck in a Jeep and had a little pickup truck pull me out, I'd be wearing a paper bag on my head.

I have pulled many a Jeep from the mud and the snow with my various 3/4 ton Chevy trucks and Suburbans over the years. Most were due to no fault of the poor Jeep, usually driver error.
Just got back from a 3 day camping/hiking trip, and had to put the Olight S15, the zippo, and the ESEE-4 to quite a bit of use.
Sometimes having 4 wheel drive lets you get into a lot more trouble being over confidant than a 2 wheel drive where you are more careful.
4 wheel drive just means you get stuck in more inconvenient places.
Was at a store today and one of the staff needed some help getting some bubble wrap off a large roll so I start rolling it up for him he starts grabbing for the scissors to cut the roll, however I pull out my Boker Magnum and have it open and cutting the bubble wrap before he even grabs the scissors, it was easy and fast.. He was pretty impressed...

I was at a meeting last night where dinner was served. The menu was mashed taters-n-gravy, corn, and pork chops. The pork chops were little, dried out nasty things and the caterers only provided us with butter knives. I quietly and discretely opened up my Cold Steel ProLite under the table and began using it on the pork chops. The knife is black with a 4 inch tanto style blade. I was almost done when the guy across the table nearly screamed like a girl, pointed at my knife and said, "where did you get that!?" Uh, outta my pocket. Then he said, you actually carry a knife everywhere? And I said, you mean you don't?
I am thinking I need to start carrying a smaller more discreet pocket knife for situations where those with delicate sensibilities might be offended. I have dozens of little pocket folders but I hate things bouncing around my pockets.
Used my Micra to help package up a
charge TTi for our friend Eagle Scout
I used a tissue and a bandaid from my altoids FAK to help out a student who had a small cut today. And of course, the widgy bar popped open a locker again. When I was getting the first aid stuff out, my spare AAA fell out and hit the floor, which immediately caused all the students around me to ask, "why do you have a battery?"
"For my flashlight, of course."
"Why do you have a flashlight?"
"Umm... to see in the dark?"
Kids these days...
Correction: Some kids these days...
Being under 16 I think I count as a kid. Ok, ok, so maybe I don't know another kid that carries as much stuff as me, but I think (hope) that there is another kid out there like me...

Lol, ok some kids. Hopefully, the ones hanging around me will figure out that carrying things can make life easier.
A shelf in my Supe's office came off the wall today and he caught it and since I was outside his door he said "I know you've got a tool on you but do you have a screw too?"
I didn't but quickly ran to the truck for a toggle anchor and bolt and between my Vic's phillips to drive a screw and flat to drive the bolt, wood saw for a hole in the drywall, and Topeak ratchet with Leatherman Extension and phillips bit, I used about half of my Skinth load to get the shelf back on the wall.
"Do I have a screw too" Pshhh.
note to self...get some screws
Then you will have to get the Skinth screw caddy/organizer to keep the various types sizes .
I know, right? I mean think of all the uses for my Skinth'd drivers I'd have if I actually had a Skinth of screws!
Shelf fell down? Screw that!
Need to hang a picture? Screw that!
Run out of gas? Screw that!
Disrespect my Wife? Screw that!
oops...getting carried away
Oops - lol
Went fishing on the boat today and I used my benchmade and my leatherman. Also used my wet ones.
