    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. :D

    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.:D

    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.

    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... :D

    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.:rolleyes:

    note to self...get some screws;)
