    I'm starting to do more traveling and have my bag already (and slightly addicted to my RUSH 12) but I'm looking for suggestions to load it with, it just seems limp and lonely. I've got a few first aid supplies and other things that provide some use(paracord, a waterbottle, pen caps left over from college, Redman chewing tobacco, etc.) So let me see what you got.

    Thanks for the heads up and the compliment. Can you tell me which ones didn't come through? Perhaps in order from 1 - 10 from the top? I will edit and repost the missing ones.

    26.
