    Hello Everyone

    I´m Magnus, live in the northern part of Sweden with family.

    Working as a welder and is an amateur photographer.

    Since i got my SAK Champ from my Father at 7 years old, i have always liked knives and all sorts of gear, i like to be prepared for any situation.

    Got an "Emergency Bag" under development too, since it can get very cold up here sometimes, it has been down to -43 deg.C

    About a month ago i started with Geocaching, and then i found my thrill with this, gearing up for any situation that might come up, anywhere. Still a geocacher though...

    Hope to find some useful tips here...And meet others like me.

    Welcome! What a coincidence! Tom Bihn just joined us as an EDCF manufacturer! Also, lots of great stuff on the BST section of the forum (near the bottom half of the home page) and at the forum store!

    You'll get hooked-fast :p

    Welcome to EDCF. It can get more expensive than a kid but don't let it. If you have kid(s) it's for a season. Don't deny yourself but ENJOY... If your kids get into EDC stuff then get three or four jobs so you can stay afloat. Stay warm friend! I'd like to see some of your images too... I shoot a Nikon but don't get out as much as I'd like to. I shot the image used for my avatar in North Carolina. ;)
