Maybe it's because I have been driven, focused on the daily race and oblivious to my peripherals? Maybe it's because I gave up on "boards" in favor of other media exchange a long while back and forgot the initial reason they existed? Maybe it's because I ride dual sports/fish/lift/shoot/hike/whatever solo vs in groups? Maybe it's because my social circles have limited people that think like me......or you? It's been nice to see the diverse styles and approaches not just to EDC, but life on this thread. One thing that is readily apparent is that many of you do not subscribe to the average production zone mentality in your selection of intricacies such as a watch, blade, whatever and or that you have unique taste. Where am I going with this post? Just saying some of the posts on this board have either inspired me or made me open doors I left closed for a while. Some of you classy SOB's challenge the standard in what you select to carry, and that is good. It has been a valued call to slightly re-examine my own dogmatic approach to the hamster wheel. Take it as you will. Keep contributing, I'll try to do the same.
