Greetings! I've been lurking for a while, and recently felt I was beginning to develop some thoughts for discussion that would provide some reasonable amount of value to this exceptional forum. I hope I'm not mistaken! Along the lines of this thread, I'm curious what skills are found to be most useful as an "EDC" item. I'm a believer in the idea of "the more you know, the less you need". Based on the extreme degree of utility represented by most of the EDC packages displayed here, what are skills you find compliment these best? Specifically, which skills get used the most. Here are some that I've thought of; maybe they'll help stimulate thought - First aid, CPR, etc. - Languages - Navigational skills - "Survival skills"; urban, wilderness or otherwise - Self defense I love to learn and would appreciate any suggestions for things to look into! Thanks! Have a great day!
