    Hi everyone,

    My name is Matt, I'm 23 from North Wales, UK.

    Professionally I am a Senior NCO in the Royal Air Force, in the Weapon System Operator trade. I am still a trainee aircrewman however. I am currently serving on a Search And Rescue unit,where I fufill the role of 'Casualty Survival Technician'; basically acting as a survivor for SAR exercises and coordinating and organising the exercises themselves.

    In my spare time, I enjoy hillwalking, climbing, storm chasing (not many to be seen around Wales mind!), going to the gym. I also have a strong interest in tactical gear, EDC kit and other smaller 'gadgets'.

    I have started a blog, reviewing military kit that has practical applications in civilian life, EDC kit being perfectly descriptive of this niche of military kit.

    My blog can be found at gearradar.blogspot.co.uk

    Many thanks, looking forward to learning plenty from this forum!
    Matt.

    Welcome to the forum Matt. As a former US Air Force guy, [​IMG] to your chosen profession.

    Traveled North Wales as a youngster. Gorgeous!! You're fortunate to live there.

    Your blog is off to a good start. Perhaps hanging here will provide some inspiration for material. Look forward to your contributions on EDCF.
