    Hello all. I'm down in (usually) sunny and warm Charleston, SC. Y'all can call me Bubba.

    I've been reading the forum or a couple of months and just recently got around to joining. My current goal is to put together an EDC FAK for my bag and then more complete FAK for car and hiking.

    The process of doing this has led me through many, many, many threads here in the forums. And a few purchases too...

    Up until this past Fall my EDC consisted of car keys, smart phone, single blade folder, and wedding ring. I also have a laptop/messenger bag I carry often but it mainly carries a laptop, charger, legal pad, and cheapo flashlight.

    I'm trying to build out a more robust EDC bag using the MOAB Rush 10 to replace the messenger bag. The FAK would be part of that build out.

    Anyway, just wanted to stop in an introduce myself and say how much I have enjoyed lurking in the shadows of the forum. Guess it's time to join in the fun... :)

    Sweet! I get over there every now and then. Mainly to the Quickshot range on Sam Rittenberg.

    I'm actually in Hanahan, but nobody else knows where that is so I say Charleston...

    Hey Bubba, this is weird. I just introduced myself here, my introduction is right above yours. But thats not the weird part. We both did it about the same time and we both live in Charleston S.C. I'm a West Ashley man.

    I haven't been to Poogan's Porch in 30 years. Think I'll make some fried green tomatoes tomorrow and reminisce.
