My everyday carry
I have a lot of fun with my adventure bag and everything inside here is used almost everyday in some fashion. In fact, one of the things I keep in here has been used to help take the picture, a 32GB SD card. I just realized my favorite sunglasses aren’t in the picture. Also, my ipod isn’t put in the same angle as the others because I rushed to put it in there. You can’t tell here but that knife has been used so much that the black on it is showing a lot of marks and that notebook is nearly filled so I have to get replacement paper. I get a lot of comments on my phone and I jailbroke it so the lockscreen would look like this. These were all laid out on my Saddleback Leather suitcase, my favorite flying partner. You’d be surprised how often that first aid box is used.
