EDC Survival

EDC or Every Day Carry is one of the most likely survival scenarios you are likely to encounter.  This is a situation where things go bad, and all you have with you are the things that you normally carry with you EVERY DAY.  IF you are lucky, you have your car with a good assortment of things available. 

Lets look at two scenarios:  1)  No Car and 2) Having your car with you.

NO CAR - What you should carry on your person every day
  1. Charged cell phone; don't let it get too low!
  2. Money - Cash, in small bills & a few coins
  3. A knife &/or a Leatherman Multi-Tool
  4. A ferrous rod &/or bic lighter for starting fire
  5. Band aids in your wallet or purse for first aid
  6. Concealed Carry pistol with extra rounds of ammo 
  7. Comfortable shoes for walking great distances
  8. Long sleeve shirt &/or waterproof coat
  9. Condom (un-lubricated) for carrying water
  10. Know your edible wild plants; this is free and adds no weight
As you think about this to carry, remember the Rule of 3.
