    Are the spikes on the toolbox functional, or just decorative?

    I have been thinking hard about this... I almost pulled the trigger on an off-brand Go-Pro-like-camera yesterday evening.

    We bought the silver because of the LCD screen. The others, you are guessing at what you are shooting. Yeah, the black has better quality but it's wasted on me. I can't tell the difference. The battery runtimes aren't that great but I'm used to having chargers and batteries everywhere. :)

    G5B Flat Baby to the rescue. I've used it three time since 2011. That's $15 per use. Economical? Maybe not,but cool.

    OK. I don't have kids. That being said, I can't remember the last time I actually needed or used a safety pin. You have bags of them. Do you use them very often?

    Hahaha.... honestly, not often. In reality, I don't use hardly any of my gear. Most of my gear/stuff is based on what other people have asked for over my lifetime. It may seem like a lot but my EDbag is light. The base contents don't change all that much. I hear people say things like "you can use a safety pin as a fish hook for survival". My mind doesn't work that way. I'm more likely to use one to thread a draw string through my sons hoody or temporarily fix a zipper pull tab than anything commando like. All time most epic fix, someone stepped on the brides train. She was sobbing, women were fainting, and cursing the heavens. A few safety pins, three minutes and I was back to drinking the bar. :) I'm not a prepper. I'm not tactical at all. My mindset is to make things just a little smoother in life.

    It's funny, when I first "discovered" edc, or that there was a group of somewhat like minded individuals out there, I kinda went nuts. I hit all the forums and informational sites and amassed a fair amount of edc gear. Name a scenario, I was prepared for it. One day I'm carting around this backpack with all this important stuff in it, it's 100+ degrees outside, and it weighed as much as a small child. When I got home, I emptied the contents on the living room floor into piles based on when it was last used. Truly the only thing used with any frequency was the bag to haul all that stuff around. Except for a flashlight, the only reason I have different piles was because stuff was added at different times. I ended up gathering everything up I had bought or accumulated and either sold it or gave it away. These days my only real vice is pocket knives, and backpacks. I've got a bag for everyday of the week if needed, and if I carried a different knife everyday, I'd only carry the same knife about 2.25 days a year...........What can I say, I'm a sick man!!

    Is that a microwave between the bike and the lawn chair?

    MedusaOblongata Yes, that's a microwave. Trying to get the '69 mustang. I can't believe what's in the garage.

    grayman I think we are on the same level. Love knives and I'm not going to stop buying them. I'm not an instagrammer with photo shopped Ti goodness, although, I love that stuff. I'm basically the same as when I started. yeah, sebbie, strider, hinderer is cool but I just don't use them much to warrant carrying. I do blinging out a bit to go to bbqs with my buddies and show off. Nothing wrong with that either. People that know me..... I've always been like this.... In high school I had a Gerber lockback and a Maglite in my Levi jacket. Hahahahaha
