Everyday Carry, Know More, How Stuff Works

  1. I found this great site http://everydaycarry.com/ that lists what people are carrying around. This appealed to my desire to pack a little survival kit and, heading to symposium next week, encouraged me to check my own ‘carry’ that I am rarely without….I give you My Everyday Carry !

  1. iPad Air – The case is tatty, but I would be lost without my iPad!
  2. Nokia C2 – The ultimate brick! This is classic Nokia and I carry it everywhere…The battery lasts for about a week, and I only use it for texting and phone emergencies so it’s perfect. Look at that thing…it takes a whippin’ and it keeps transmittin’.
  3. Leatherman Skeletool – At a mere five ounces, this baby has a stainless steel combo blade, pliers, bit driver, removable pocket clip and carabiner/bottle opener. The Skeletool is just what you need in one good-looking package.
  4. Keys and LED Lenser Light – LED Lenser torches are sturdy and the beam they put out is like touching the darkness with a magical wand of luminosa!
  5. 16GB USB Drive – So, so, so handy. Wanna share some digital stuff….whack it on the USB!
  6. Nike TOMTOM GPS Watch – I run, and this bit of kit is all the motivation I need. It tracks actual distance and position, within about a metre, (no matter where you are in the world) by hooking into satellite data….I cannot express how awesome I find that.

2. Pretty cool site if you want to know more about the world around you! Ties in to Eco, Geo, History, Eng, heaps of info in cool infographics!
