Mike, I am totally mystified by the stuff the so called experts say we need to get through the day in the 21st century suburbia. Maybe they just live a more adventurous life than I do, but so far I've lived okay with just the stuff in my pockets similar to what my dad and uncles carried for a way more active life than I have had. After all, I had the great fortune to not have to survive a Great Depression, go off to fight in a world war, and then raise a family in 1950's America. I just don't know how I've made it through! Seriously, this modern craze of EDC has got out of hand as much as the whole knife thing, tool thing, gun thing and SUV thing. I can only guess the world of 2020 is way more dangerous and challenging than the world of our fathers and grandfathers.
