    Our little family is going on a 10 day road trip, part hotel stays and part camping. I'm taking three knives I think will cover most situations. [​IMG]

    A full sized Vic scout knife like a Trekker or Centurion. My Boye boat knife in dendritic cobalt and either my Vic Swiss Champ or Swisstool. Plus I always have my 2" A.G.Russell ti lockback in my wallet.

    Forgot fixed. My Mora Garberg or Ka-Bar wrench knife.

    I travel for a living. I bring my Tops Cut 4.0, Busse RMD Bowie, and a folder l. The folder is a toss between SOG trident, CS Recon 1 or a Kershaw. After TSA busted my ass for traveling sloppy I try to keep a mental inventory of what I'm bringing. Also a NAA folding 22 mag or Glock 43x. Society is mad right now.

    Depends on the road trip. If there are hotels, restaurants, or anything else like those in the itinerary, the Recon 1 or the Manix 2 paired with an Izula are about the only knives I can carry discreetly.

    At the very least, I will take the two knives I keep in my car, a SCHF55 and a 14” Tramontina bolo. My pocket knives will also be there: Biltong and Opinel 6. I will most likely insert the Alox Farmer in place of the Electrician. I will probably want to have the Skrama with me and the BK62, in case thre might be a campfire involved.

    Good point. My BK2 will be in the glove box most of the time.

    A Letherman Wave and a 4.5” fixed blade live in my truck, which is our usual road trip vehicle. Always have a folder in my pocket, usually either a Manix 2 or a Steel Will Modus. There’s also always a medium camp axe in the bed, and who knows what in the tool bag.

    An old CRKT Stiff KISS and a Gerber Crucial currently live in the wife’s car. Plus whatever I have on me at the time.

    For us, most road trips are also camping/hiking trips, so knives, tools, and gear are all a given.

    When hiking, I usually take a PM2, a SAK Fieldmaster and an Esee 4

    Depending o the trip I may replace the PM2 by either a native5 or a bugout if something smaller or lighter is appropriate

    Use the desktop version of imgur, bud. Once you upload the pic, there should be a bbcode option on your post. Copy that link to Blade Forums and you should be good to go.

    Oh, and upload your pics as “hidden.” Otherwise, non-knife SJW imgur users will swarm you.

    On my last vacation I took an Umnumzaan, a cheap Gerber Evo and a Buck 110.
    The Umnumzaan and the Gerber got the most use.
    I carried the Evo when I was at the beach.

    Honestly, probably a variety of between 7-10 knives. That way I could choose what I wanted, and what best suited whatever task may be ahead for the day. This is assuming I’m driving, as I do not fly. Most of my knives are Buck (folding and fixed), but I would also bring my Lg 21 Micarta and my slip joint that will (hopefully) be here on Monday that I was lucky enough to have special made for me.

    The others I have need to go anyway because I don’t really use them. I have been offloading anything I won’t use. This thread reminded me I need to go through them :D:thumbsup:
