A friend of ours is constantly amazed by the amount of multi-purpose bits and pieces we carry. My response was “What you don’t buy things with multi-use in mind, how strange?”
Then I saw his tool storage
3 large cantilever toolboxes stacked full of (surprisingly enough) tools.
No wonder his SWMBO moans a lot.
9″ high, 12 ” deep, 16 inches long.
Inside is a simple tool roll, 4″ diameter, 8 inches long.
And that’s what gets used the most.
Although SWMBO moans about that occasionally!
I reckon that’s got to be a girlie thing.
It’s the same when going out.
The pack goes into the car with a change of clothing, water, and munches.
Pretty much a standard EDC load including rain gear and sun screen.
It’s sunny why the rain gear? Why sun screen and it’s raining?
My response always “Better to have but not want than want but don’t have.”
So is that prepping, a ‘just in case’ mindset, or OTT?
Take your pick but how do you know your journey is going to end how you planned it?
With that scenario in your mind, doesn’t it seem prudent to plan for the worst?
