    Hello, I go by the monikor Inner Prop. This is a reference to the Rugby position Prop Forward. Your Inner Prop is just like your Inner Child, only more violent.

    Goldtanker, I did some time with the 25ID while in Afghanistan (We strike like tropic lightning, we're trained and we're ready to fight...). I should say I was there when they were there. I was in the Illinois Army National Guard with the 33d ASG. I just retired two weeks ago.

    I am an Eagle Scout and I am currently a Girl Scout leader (I have no boy children).

    I work for a major pharmaceutical company as a production supervisor(executive casual).

    My summer EDC is vastly different than my winter or spring/fall.

    Right now my EDC is:

    1. Eagle wallet (I can't seem to find the link right now, but it's a really nifty wallet that holds a pad of paper and a bullet pen)
    2. Listerine strips
    3. About $2
    4. Contact drops
    5. Cell phone
    6. Pager (work required)
    7. White pocket handkerchief
    8. Palm TX (PDA) with the US Army Survival Manual in it
    9. Keychain
    9A. Keys
    9B. Sharpie Mini (new since I've been reading this forum)
    9C. CC Knifelite (knife blade / flat screwdriver and a led light)

    What I'd like to carry (among other things):

    1. Multi-tool (haven't decided which one yet, but it'd have to be small, executive casual you know)
    2. Another flashlight
    3. Pry bar
    4. First Aid
    5. Survival / Prepardness kit
    5A. Lighter
    5B. Tinder
    5C. Tape
    5D. Cord
    5E. Compass
    5F. Whistle
    5G. Safety pins
    5H. Foil
    5I. Crazy glue

    Considering:

    1A. Leatherman Micra
    1B. Leatherman Squirt (S4 or P4)
    1C. Gerber Clutch
    1D. Gerber Shortcut
    2. Nite-ize phone carrier (need one desperately, and I think this may solve some other problems)
    3. Case Logic DMC2 Memory Card Carrier (to consolidate and organize my pocket carry)
    4. Vaughn mini pry bar

    Need help with:

    1. Organizing Winter / Coat EDC (I'm thinking of using thin baby wipe boxes)
    2. Briefcase EDC (carry it with me to work, but not around at work and not otherwise, but I do have a lot of useful stuff in there, including a change of underwear).
    3. Walking stick prepardness kit (I've seen one in one of the forums here and I have my own ideas about using PVC)
    4. Ideas for day hike pack (I have a military fanny pack I'd like to use)
    5. Car kits

    I have two mottos: "Don't spend any money" and "Don't take any time."

    I know these sound like impossible mottos, but my wife does the bills and I don't think she finds this to be a very high priority.

    Glad to be here.

    Hey, where in Illinois? I'm up here in Rockford.
    :yoga:

    While I'm thinking about it, here's my current EDC:
    Surefire E2D
    Nextel phone
    Palm TX (I want that Army Survival manual! Where did you get it???)
    Gerber Legend 800


    Keychain:
    P-38
    keys
    CPR mask w/ Nitrile gloves
    Pen (can't remember the brand, off hand, but I think it's Cross)

    I usually have my Smith & Wesson First Responder knife, but it's gone on walk-about here at home. I'm hoping that I'll be able to replace it with a Surefire Delta folder, but that's going to have to be hush-hush. :))

    But couldn't Illinois, Indiana and Kentucky all be considered Land of Lincoln?!

    Hmmm?


    Welcome!

    Hi Inner prop,

    Welcome nice presentation.

    About "don't spend any money" you are probably in the wrong place :) but we'll see how the forum affects you.

    I was born in Chicago so Rockford is "downstate" ( ;) I know it's north of Chicago, but if it aint Cook County it's "downstate")

    You can get FM21-76 in PDF from Doug Ritter, Outdoors Magazine, and here. I got it from Memoware.

    Abbott

    Not officially. It's on our licence plates and as far as I know Lincoln still resides here.

    Well, thank you for your service. Me: FOB Salerno, Khost Provence 04-05, probably a lot less "exciting" than your tour.
