    Hey gang.

    I've been lurking here for so long poking my nose in everyone else's business, i figure its only fair that I finally put myself out there and show off how I handle this EDC thing.

    I have been doing this EDC thing since long before I knew what to call it.

    Now a little bit about myself; I am a Clinical Educator at a large EMS Service in a large City in Michigan. (recently named Beer City, USA - has little to do with my current role, but does make the after hours life more interesting). That title means little to those who are not in my office with me so I'll explain. I spend the 10 years prior to last year as a night shift paramedic in the same big city with side gigs in rural environments (rural is a very different bit of fun than urban) Last year I was assigned a new role in the Clinical Education Services department of Training and Development. I am an instructor in nearly every 'Merit Badge' course you can get for EMS Providers. We offer many of those courses at my office. I have been a licensed EMS Instructor in my state for I think it is 8 years now. I have been tasked with running simulations and disaster exercises all over our region so I am traveling a ton these days. I do occasionally get out on the ambulance and run regular EMS calls, but often when I get into an ambulance it is when I am responding with our SRT (special response team - Tactical, Technical Rescue, Hazardous Materials, etc). I spend as much time as I can out in the woods, hiking, camping, backpacking, canoeing, whatever I can.


    So that is way too much about me, now check back later and I'll try to have a few posts of my gear.

    It can be sweet. It can be incredibly boring. Mostly its an awesome career.

    That is the same salutation I use around my shop and in the field - 'what's shaking?'
    The other day I received the best answer yet (from a bigger medic at the other company in town)

    His reply was 'my belly when I run!'

    Love it.

    Hello to everyone who has replied to this Intel thread. As soon as I am able to get the phot hosting thing figured out I'll complete the post I've been working on outlining what I carry every day - on duty, in the woods, and everywhere else.
