    Many of you complain about your wife's objection to your EDC "hobby". I confess that many times,it puzzles me as well. On the other hand, I'm here now, aren't I? I like to be prepared. I think women were the first EDCers and sometimes, the most efficient. We're expected to be the ones that have everything you need stashed somewhere convenient. I'm glad you guys are finally getting with the program. My hubby is so used to just walking out of the house and getting into the car without anything but his wallet and keys. I've usually got whatever is needed either in my truck, in my bag, or on my person. And I like this stuff. Good examples of this stuff that will last me for life with a little maintenance.

    Anyway, didn't mean to go on a rant there :) I've been lurking for months, then decided I should join. I thought I wasn't going to get approved... When all of a sudden an approval arrived in my email, much like some little gadget ordered so long ago you forgot, and then it shows up in your PO BOX. I was pleased that I got approved :)

    I've made a couple of snarky responses to a couple of posts since then, but I'm reading and feeling my way around slowly. Thanks for letting me join ya'll. If nothing else, I'll be lurking. I'm considering purchasing an Atwood soon, and I don't know why :)

    Oh, and why are my "Pockets Empty"? And where do I enter my sig info -- I can't seem to find it in the settings.

    See you around,
    Lori

    Figured out why my pockets are empty (on the forum) by reading the Most excellent FAQ. No wonder it's recommended reading.

    Welcome to EDCF! The approval process does take awhile, but it's worth it. I believe that the only way to add a signature is with tapatalk.
