Hello there, Ive been lurking around these parts for a while now. Finally registered and decided that I should post about myself and my current state of gear. Ive been into the BOB//whatever you want to call it world, for quite some time. Im from a small town in Northern CA, where there wasn't much to worry about. But I have recently moved to SoCal, and with the massive population, and limited freeway access, Ive become more cautious, and more prepared than I ever was before. But, I won't get into all that, since this is an EDC forum, not a BOB forum.... Ill stop blabbing and get to what everyone wants to see... the pictures... I am a former Deputy Sheriff, turned Hazmat truck driver. This is the backpack I am currently using. I do have another post in the EDC bag forum for comments and advice about it however. 1956 Zippo show for scale This is a pretty typical load out of the bag. I also just recently ordered a Maxpedition Beefy organizer. Because I am also going back to school, working, and often make the 5 hour drive up north to my home town to visit family. So I have other bags for those uses, and I grew tired of moving all of these items loose from one bag to another. Now I just have one pouch to move. Here are a couple pics of it, as well as a load dump of it. Also shown is the moral patch I just ordered and am waiting to arrive, to put on the front of my Beefy. I believe it is my all time favorite subdued American flag patch, matches my reflective blue line stickers on the bumpers of my trucks, and pays homage to my previous career, which I am still very proud of. And this is a typical pocket dump for me. Usually my personal keys and wallet also go into my backpack at work, because Im more-or-less a floor rider in a semi truck (no air in the air bag for the seat), and work with hazmat materials, and would just rather not have anything in my pockets. Only thing missing is my iPhone 5s in its OD green/black Lifeproof case, as that is what is taking all of these pictures. Id be happy to answer any questions about my gear, and welcome and comments. I can also work on making a list of items/brands if anyone is interested, but I feel that most people here probably recognize most of this stuff. Its nothing really fancy, but funds are limited right now. We are trying to save up for a house (astronomical prices in SoCal, compared to where we are from), and I have already dumped quite a bit into my BOBs/get-home/emergency bags, as well as a few new additions and modifications to my pickup trucks.
